British holidaymakers staged an unprecedented mutiny - refusing to allow their flight to take off until two men they feared were terrorists were forcibly removed.
The extraordinary scenes happened after some of the 150 passengers on a Malaga-Manchester flight overheard two men of Asian appearance apparently talking Arabic.
One of these days, we really want to find out what it is with the British MSM and their fetish about saying “Asian” instead of the proper “Middle Eastern.”
Passengers told cabin crew they feared for their safety and demanded police action. Some stormed off the Monarch Airlines Airbus A320 minutes before it was due to leave the Costa del Sol at 3am. Others waiting for Flight ZB 613 in the departure lounge refused to board it.
And why not? After 9/11 and the numerous attempts since by Islamic males between the ages of 18 and 40 to board and blow up planes, not to mention the recently foiled massive terror plot, you’d be stark raving bonkers if your Spidey Sense wasn’t tingling in such a situation.
Passengers noticed that, despite the heat, the pair were wearing leather jackets and thick jumpers and were regularly checking their watches.
Nothing suspicious there, right?
The incident fuels the row over airport security following the arrest of more than 20 people allegedly planning the suicide-bombing of transatlantic jets from the UK to America. It comes amid growing demands for passenger-profiling and selective security checks.
It also raised fears that more travellers will take the law into their own hands - effectively conducting their own ‘passenger profiles’.
“Take the law into their own hands?”
Is there a law saying that you have to board a plane if you’ve bought a ticket for it? Interesting.
Of course, the useless empty suits of the Nanny State aren’t about to let the plebes teach them anything and are, instead, huffing and puffing indignantly:
Patrick Mercer, the Tory Homeland Security spokesman, said last night: “This is a victory for terrorists. These people on the flight have been terrorised into behaving irrationally.
“For those unfortunate two men to be victimised because of the colour of their skin is just nonsense.”
They weren’t victimized because of the color of their skin, as a matter of fact it’s hard to claim that they were “victimized” at all, seeing as how they were put up for the night in a hotel at airline expense and flown home on the next flight.
Any inconvenience to them was solely due to the fact that blathering buttweasels like yourself have spent the last five years doing absolutely NOTHING to convince the general public that you value their safety higher than the tender sensibilities of an easily identifiable group of people that has, at last count, been responsible for 5,620 terrorist attacks since 9/11/2001.
And spare us the “victory for terrorists” pablum, you pompous prick, particularly seeing as how it is you politicians who’ve been bending over and grabbing ankles every single time Islamic fundamentalists have as much as frowned in your general direction for fear of being seen as politically incorrect.
If we, the general public, see no reason to believe that you take our safety and wellbeing seriously, and G-d knows that there is no reason to believe that after five years of you playing Russian Roulette with our lives, then we’ll just have to take care of matters ourselves.
But hey, Patrick, if you feel so farkin’ strongly about it, then why don’t you make sure to place your own lardy arse and/or members of your family on every flight carrying unusually dressed Muslims behaving suspiciously?
Those two might very well have been perfectly innocent, but how can you be sure when the only thing you know for certain is that nobody anywhere has bothered to check them out? One mustn’t risk offending anybody, after all, even if tippy-toeing around the obvious truth leads to hundreds or thousands of dead civilians.
If you bureaucrappic clapweasels would start doing your jobs, then perhaps the rest of us wouldn’t feel obliged to do them for you.
