A New Islamic Inquistion Begins: Judicial Jihad: the court system is being used to circumvent the Constitution, chill frees speech, and furter limit our liberty and freedoms.
Audrey Hudson in the Washington Times reports that now the imams are only going after "racist" passengers and that they the only ay Mr. Mohammendi can possibly determine whether the John Does 'knowlying made false reports' against his clients 'with the entent to discriminate agains them' will be to take their testimony under oath, at least during pretrial discovery.".
The claim of racism is bogus. First, Islam is not a race, it's an ideology. Skin color can not be used as a basis to decide whether one is Muslim. Ethnicity can't be used because Muslims come from a variety of ethnic groups. Speaking Arabic can't be used because Arab Christians and others speak Arabic. Even dress can't be a determiner unless the person is dressed in traditional Muslim garb of some ethnic group because Muslims now dress in Western clothes or mix Western clothes with Muslim styles. And, some fashion houses are morphing Muslim styling in their various collections. And praying in Arabic can't be used as determination as to whether what one is saying is threat unless the listener understands Arabic.
Suspicious behavior is in the eye of the beholder. To label a person racist, bigoted, or even Islamophobic based on a report of suspicious behavior is rediculous and will have unintended consequences if the imam's suit is successful. Thus, any whistleblower who makes a report of any kind could be sued, hauled into court, or be forced to go before the Islamic Inquistion.
