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.
