    I myself am a University of Houston student and am appalled by the actions of this film festival. I have taken numerous courses throughout my years with Muslim students who have worn the entire garb and spoke all different types of languages. I NEVER felt threatened, they were my classmates and my friends.

    #1. If you actually feel threatened that this lady had a bomb why would you just go up to her and search the backpack (Call 911, people who know how to deal with bombs)

    #2. Why would you wait until everyone filed back in the room to approach the girl, why not ask her as you were outside where if a bomb goes off it is less deadly and not crammed in a room

    Just goes to show he was not concerned at all about a bomb and was just concerned with being an ass-hole and trying to make a statement.

    The terrorists are winning if we are acting like this. Inflicting fear is just what they want.

    If the film festival reps were genuinely concerned, they would have had security features and measures in place (wands/detectors, backpack checks) that everyone in the room would be subject to.

    Hunter Todd"What am I supposed to do?" he asked. "Allow a terrorist to blow up 200 people?"


    In his fever to save 200 people from blowing up, in the aftermath of the Marathon bombing, Todd likely scooted right past dozens of Caucasians with bags and backpacks to get to the woman in the burqa.

    No they are NOT winning.

    An example of Islamophobia would be burning down a mosque. Burning of churches happen in the islamic world and its no more than a blip on the tv news screen.

    The USA is and always be known for its restraint and tolerance.

    The Islamic religion is going to have to do alot more to rehabilitate its image. In alot of ways many American Muslims have done this by cooperating with police.

    humans look for patterns in life. To expect Americans to be SUPER HUMAN and 100% unbiased is a fools errand.

    The comments on the link are just delicious, too!

    "She brings FIVE BOTTLES OF WATER to a FESTIVAL SHOWING MOVIES in HOUSTON, TEXAS. I mean, who does that?", they ask as they finish swilling their six-packs of Coors Lite icon_rolleyes.gif
