Omar Shahin, spokesman for the humiliated imams, is affiliated with the "Kind Hearts" charity, a Hamas linked organization, shut down by the US Treasury Department. This Omar Shahin is also on record expressing doubt that Muslims were behind the 9/11 attacks. Over at Jihad Watch, Robert Spencer has more info about this fellow RoP follower. There's much more to this story, we just have to dig a little deeper. As the saga continues, I'll post new developments.

As this story continues to develop, it seems it was intentionally executed to draw more attention to the "profiling problem" in this country. The fear and prejudice is real and by acting in a manner that would draw out this fear. Asking for seat belt extensions, standing up in unison, and praying shortly after boarding a plane is not a first amendment right, not after 9/11. This is a case of "yelling fire in a crowded theater" plain and simple. These "men of faith" concocted this plan in order to fabricate a "civil rights violation" lawsuit. If allowed to go to trial, it will surely be a circus. These innocent imams were only exercising their right to religious freedom.
