Muslims Taken Off Flight

Four Muslim men were removed from an easyJet flight at Luton after passengers reported their bizarre actions. The four men were wearing traditional dress and started arguing with each other just minutes after boarding. This was followed by a group trip to the toilets.

Hat Tip: USS Neverdock.

A similar incident occurred with Monarch Airlines in August. Due to that incident the IHRC placed Monarch on their short-list to win the annual Islamophobia Award.

Despite complaints from these sorts of organisation, the actions of these passengers is exactly what is required. The public must be alert and must act when they are concerned. These people should be applauded by everyone; some inconvenience is a small price to pay for saving lives. The most basic human right is surely the right to life and any human rights group should support that above all else. But then, the IHRC isn't a group for the rights of all humans, only some humans.
