    Muslims have no one but their coreligionists to blame. If the airline had done nothing and he later attacked passengers, the news story would have chided the airline for laxed security and would be sued by all the other passengers.

    You know in America, German was spoken very much by German immigrants. That pretty much ended with WWI and WWII pretty much was the death knell for that language in the US. You fuckin' rag heads need to learn that lesson as well. Speak English and assimilate or go back to the shit holes you came from.

    The rest of us would like to feel safe in our own country



    Which you can't, even without Muslims, what with high crime rates. You are more likely to be harmed by other Americans than Muslims. Muslims have been in Europe for a long time for example, without terrorist problems. The psychos shouldn't influence how people feel about the majority. It's like judging all men on the basis that men are more violent than women on average.

    Wow, are you ever misinformed. Paris and Berlin have had no go zones since the 1980's . Paris burns every summer .... can't report about it for political correctness . There is even a film about Muslim gangs preying on gay men.

    While racial profiling makes sense in certain situations (e.g. 99% of attackers in a "theater" come from a certain background, regardless of whether true elsewhere or universally), kicking someone off a plane for saying something benign* from that culture is idiotic and a sign of ignorant xenophobia.

    * A conversation might go something like this:

    A: Maybe it'll be sunny and 70 tomorrow for the soccer game
    B: Inshallah
