The flying imams need your money.... um I mean help

Today’s whine-o-gram is a plea for support for the flying imams. CAIR sent this appeal on behalf of MLFA, the muslim legal fund of America. More about them in a moment, but here's a video from their website. For your viewing pleasure, of course.

Remember the six imams who were traveling home to Phoenix when some islamophobic, racist and bigoted fellow passengers alerted authorities to their completely normal behavior.

Well, it seems those crazy imams are suing “US Airways and other entities who participated in taking them off the flight, detaining them and denying them further service”. And I would have to assume, this lawsuit would include the racist, islamophobic passengers.

Since there’s nothing on the CAIR website as of this writing, I’m going to post the email in its entirety.

Most Publicized Airport Profiling Case Goes to Trial
As-salaamu ‘alaykum (Peace be with you),
A case that will impact people like you every time you step on an airplane is expected to be decided in federal court this year.
In November 2006, six imams were removed from a US Airways flight in Minneapolis, allegedly because some of them had prayed in the airport terminal.
Because of the way they were treated, they are suing US Airways and other entities who participated in taking them off the flight, detaining them and denying them further service. The case is slated to go to trial this year and will serve as a critical battleground for protecting the rights of Muslims as airline passengers. (emphasis theirs)
Do you remember how these six imams were defamed and accused in the court of public opinion following their humiliating experience? But now, in a court of law, these false accusations are crumbling.
The good news: both the facts and the law are on the side of the imams. We have already won several preliminary victories. (For more information, click here.) However, fighting these important battles against a Fortune 500 company like US Airways is no easy task and can be expensive. But when everyone does his or her part, success becomes near. (emphasis theirs)
This is truly a historic case of momentous proportion that will impact not just the imams’ civil rights but the civil rights of you, your children, and every Muslim in America. The civil rights history of our country shows how great change often results from individual cases. We believe the six imams’ case is one that must be won. (emphasis theirs)
CAIR has supported this critical discrimination case from the beginning. Now, the Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA) is helping to raise funds for the imams’ defense. Please help their experienced litigation team by making a tax deductible donation to ensure that the six imams and the Muslim community have their day in court.
Let’s make no mistake about it -- we support safety and security in aviation, but we do no tolerate removing people from airplanes just because of their faith or ethnicity.
As always, we count on your sincere prayers to Almighty God that He bless and accept our efforts as we strive for justice and respect for the six imams and for all people.
$300,000 is needed to continue successfully litigating this case. CAIR invites supporters of the imams’ case to do their part. This case is critical for the civil liberties of not only the imams but of all Muslims who should be free of stigmatization and targeting. (emphasis theirs)
Every prayer and donation makes a difference.
Please support this case by making a tax deductible donation to:
Muslim Legal Fund of America
833 E. Arapaho Road, Ste 209
Richardson, TX 75081
Or click here to make a donation through MLFA’s secure website.


Now here’s a little more about MLFA. This from Militant islam Monitor;

"Besides being on the board of Amnesty International, Chip Pitts is also an advisory to the Muslim Legal Fund of America. Like CAIR the group pretends to be civil rights group and is a front for radical Islamists .The board includes people like Mahdi Bray, the director of the Muslim American Society's cynically named "Freedom Foundation". MAS is part of ICNA and both organisations are directly linked to Al Qaeda. MLFA links to groups which are presently under investigation by Senate Committees for terrorism funding, sucha as CAIR, ISNA, and ICNA."

Like a spider’s web, all of these organizations are simply pieces of the same nefarious pie.

Mohammed's little mafia in action.

Shaking down anything that moves.

Are they suggesting the flying I's actions were not provocative, that the actions didn't happen, or that they have the right to be provocative - to "yell fire" and not have to answer for it?

Maybe CAIR's lawyers are counting on finding 12 people who never heard of 9/11.

Can't believe no one from this side of the world isn't helping them out. I'd be inclined to think that someone with some oil dollars would be willing to fund their entire existence just to see the USA have to bend over, yet again, for this cult.

I hope the Judge treats this with a fair degree of skepticism. Total scam artists.
