Creeping Sharia reports on the futility of terror laws at US airports. Last month the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) exempted Muslims from full body scans.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has issued a travel warning to Muslim airline passengers on U.S. aircraft in response to the Transportation Safety Administration’s “enhanced pat down” policy that went into effect in late October.
CAIR said Muslims who object to full-body scans for religious reasons should know their rights if they are required to undergo a pat-down, including asking for the procedure to be done in a private place. In addition, CAIR offered a “special recommendation” for Muslim women who wear a hijab, telling them they should tell the TSA officer that they may be searched only around the head and neck.
It also states: “Instead of the pat-down, you can always request to pat down your own scarf, including head and neck area, and have the officers perform a chemical swipe of your hands.”
All this heightened security started straight after 9/11. You know my thoughts on that, but Islamists got the blame and that’s why airport staff are now allowed to see you and I naked on their screens and ban us from taking liquids and penknives on board, but Muslims are the ones being allowed special rights to avoid being “humiliated”.
Your crippled, asthmatic granny can be subjected to a full scan and body search while the mysterious Arab woman (or man) wearing a hijab gets waved through after “patting down” her head and neck area.
Similar things are happening in Canada.
You couldn’t even begin to make it up! Back in the USA…
“Pat downs are one important tool to help TSA detect hidden and dangerous items such as explosives,” a TSA statement issued on Oct. 28 stated. “Passengers should continue to expect an unpredictable mix of security layers that include explosives trace detection, advanced imaging technology, canine teams, among others.”
And there lieth another problem for Muslims: dogs, which are considered “ritually unclean”. This blind Muslim girl in Michigan cannot have a guide dog, so takes a horse to classes.
Political correctness reached an all-time low in Dundee in 2008 when police apologised for sending out postcards advertising a new non-emergency telephone number which showed a six-month-old trainee police dog.
This faux-pas could so easily have been avoided,
Tayside Police have admitted they should have consulted their ‘diversity’ officers before issuing the cards…
And it’s us native Brits who get the blame for problems with “community cohesion”. Creeping Sharia continues,
“It is TSA’s policy that passengers should be screened by an officer of the same gender in a professional, respectful manner,” the policy reads.
As Creeping Sharia notes,
A gender-based policy, fully aligned with sharia law.
As I say to the secularists, if you ditch our Judeo-Christian heritage and values, you will get sharia law. In fact, this shows we are already partly there, as evidenced by the many state and private institutions where the only meat available on menus is halal.
And don’t expect to be able to read blogs like mine, because I will have been arrested.
So what are our “terror laws” really used for?
More than half of councils are using anti-terror laws to spy on families suspected of “bin crimes”.
Their surveillance tactics include hiding secret cameras on streets and even in neighbouring homes to catch householders putting their rubbish out on the wrong day.
Says it all, really.
