Terror: Be careful what you take through security

And for heaven's sake, no matter how embarrassed you are, don't say you have a bomb!
Prosecutors say Amin, who was on his way to Turkey with his mother and two small children last week, twice told security officials that he was carrying a bomb. Only later did he admit he had initially lied about the rubber object's true function because he didn't want his mother to know he was carrying a penis pump, prosecutors say.
Amin does claim that "half of America" uses these. Really?

All muslims should be thoroughly screened prior to boarding.

Why? Because all Muslims are suspect, as they should be, given what they believe and how they act. I am pleased to see that the world getting sick of these narcissistic and petulant children, testing and killing us as they are. If Islam is worse than Nazism, then not standing up against it and adherents is existentially asinine and a position of moral shame. You want to get loud to scare people or have a penis pump and think it is better to call it a bomb, then you have no right to be on a plane. That is not racism. It recognizes the dhimmitude to which these evil people want to subject us. Privately, Muslims laugh at how timid we are and how easy it is to play political correctness and multiculturalism, both themselves religious evils. Political correctness and multiculturalism are for phony and shallow intellectuals. If the passengers on a plane do not act in accord to the mores of our society, any non-Muslim society for that matter, then they should be removed and Islam given an overt and pointed middle finger. Half of all americans use penis pumps. LOL! Yet another Islamic loser, from the same country that has rapist protection laws. Islam is as evil as it gets ideologically.

How do you know the man is a Muslim there anonymous?

Aside from the supporting evidence that his name is not O'Reilly heading for Dublin, only a Muslim, in this case, an Iraqi one, could think that it is better to tell his mother that he is carrying a bomb (ah, the glories of false martyrdom) rather than a penis pump (perversion arising from social retardation, something Islam loves to promote). I suggest that you google the story and dig deeper, since PC media has largely left out his quite factual nationality and religion, before assuming that someone has committed some faulty assumption. I am culturally sensitive, however, since now he has to go without his little "girlfriend." Allāhu Akbar!

Because he is from Iraq, he is a Muslim? Iraq has a vibrant secular community. I am from North Dakota, would you assume I am a Christian?

You make the same mistake a second time? I repeat: I suggest that you google the story and dig deeper, since PC media has largely left out his quite factual nationality and religion, before assuming that someone has committed some faulty assumption. What is it that you do not understand about "factual nationality and religion?" Further, for your information, non-Muslims are being persecuted in Iraq and the notion that it is secular, given that its constitution states that no laws can contradict Sharia, is just plain stupid.

No, I just think that you are some conceptually misguided fellow in ND who supports the non-exisistent "Palestinian people" and an enemy of the U.S., viz., Socialist Chavez.

Your should study history rather than gulliby falling for leftist propaganda that is demonstrably false. I had already decided not to debate you (my email stating as much to Greg precedes your weak response), because you are misinfomed, but here is one last truthful shot to a closed mind. You would be well advised to look up when the term "Palestinian" came into use. Otherwise, you display your ignorance on the subject and, therefore, lack any authority to comment, i.e., unless you prefer looking uninformed. You did not even have the courage or intellectual honesty to admit that Iraq is anything, but secular, leading me to have very little respect for the capabilities of your brain.

Given my deep respect for the Jews, I would like to say that it is too easy to forget the what is now referred to as Israel and the so-called "occupied territories" was called Judea, largely because the Jews had lived there for over a thousand years before Islam was concocted (I say "concocted," because Islam is an inconsistent blend of Paganism, Christianity and Judaism) and, when Islam was militaristically strong enough, took the entire area. The term "Palestinian" did not even exist before the Six-Day War in 1967. They were, in fact, mostly Jordanian Arabs. Even Hitler referred to the "Palestinians" as the "Sudeteners" and you will not find a single Arab document calling them "Palestinian," until after that war. In brief, the entire area originally belonged to the Jews and was stolen by Muslims, until it was given back to the Jews as Isreal by the U.N. in 1948, Resolution 181. Muslims refer to the creation of Israel as "The Great Catastrophe." Per the the teachings of Mohammed and the Koran, once a land is taken, it is consider Muslim property forever and, if lost, Muslims are required to regain any such areas, even if it was belligerently taken in the first place (by the way, since they held much of Europe at one time, they still consider it theirs). It is also noteworthy that surrounding Muslim countries have not come to the aid of the "Palestinians." It has been part of a long range jihadist strategy to take back what Islam had conquered and stolen per its theology. I find the anti-Semitism among liberals in their support of the "Palestinian" "cause" morally revolting and ignorant of Middle Eastern history. From the very beginning and without provocation, Mohammed started his war against non-Muslims, particularly the Jews, such as the Banu Qurayza, who were a prosperous and peaceful agrarian people, until he slaughtered and enslaved them, an example still followed. It is not shear coincidence that the phrase "the bloody borders of Islam" came into existence. Islam thrives on its violence. Not only does Israel have a right to exist, it has been rightfully their land for thousands of years, long before Islam and its fascism and jihadism came along to show its ugly totalitarian head. Moderation will not stop what has gone on for 1400 years and peace is literally impossible, since Mohammed allowed only ten year truces (peace treaties), until such time that the Muslim side is strong enough to strike again and win. The really tragic part is that the West is funding Islamic jihad in the name of "humanitarian aid." We should start calling it what they call it privately, "jizya," the poll tax that "dhimmis" pay to not be harmed by Muslim terrorism and stop paying it. Israel deserves our support. Perhaps, the "Palestinian people" can immigrate to Muslim countries, given that the Jews (all non-Muslims unwilling to accept dhimmitude, for that mater) have been forced to leave Muslim controlled countries, under threat of death, subjugation or torture (put that up against Israel's alleged injustices against the "Palestinians"). The plight of the "Palestinians" should be no less important to the U.N. than, for example, the current Muslim genocide of the Christian Sudanese or of the past Armenian genocide under Turkish Muslims (Turkey is still in denial) or of the current persecution of Christians by Muslims in the West Bank and Gaza or the destruction of non-Muslim houses of worship in Muslim countries today.

Oh, and by the way, Mardin Amin is an Iraqi Muslim. From start to finish, you said little and what you did say is factually incorrect. I would also add that questions are not positions and, because of that, I almost did not respond to you. Now, I know better than to waste my time with you and for that I thank you.

Wow! What I thought would be a funny post has elicited some exuberant responses. Charles, you have certainly done your homework with regard to the historical perspective.

Frankly, I think any muslim who has a penis pump is probably not following islamic laws. Chances are they would not be a terrorist!

I thought my line that "I am culturally sensitive, however, since now he has to go without his little "girlfriend." Allāhu Akbar!" was kind of funny.

Wow. Alan Dershowitz in the flesh. I too have read stuff on the middle east. I have talked to people that from there. My sources aren't tainted by Zionist nonsense. (also, the left were huge supporters of the Zionist experiment until they gave up their socialist agrarian dream to be a client state of the US. People like the Christian Zionists and the US government who use Israel for proxy wars is the worst kind of anti-semitism in my view.)I will go back even further than you did.

Around 900 BC the kingdom of Israel was involved in a civil war. The southern part became the kingdom of Judah and the northern the Kingdom of Israel. In 700 something BC the Assyrians took over the northern kingdom. Many fled south, the ones that stayed became known as the Samaritians.

Around 590 BC the Babylonians sacked the southern Kingdom. So here we are, nearly 2,600 years ago and the Jews don't have a kingdom. This is the start of the first Jewish diaspora.

Next the Persians sacked the area and ruled it for two hundred years. Next Alexander the Great ruled it until his death. Then it was split up under various rulers until the Jews revolted in 167 BC, again forming an autonomous region ruled by the Jews. So from 590 BC to 170 BC there was no Kingdom of Israel. There were Jews living there true. But there were also a great deal of Persians, Romans and Arabs are mentioned in mid 800 BC by the Assyrians who fought them in northern Syria. So they were around that area too. Reading your post, you come off as believing Jews lived and ruled this area for thousands of years without conflict, when in fact this place has been ruled by damn near every ethnic group in the area. Jews have ruled the area for a relatively small time.

In 60 BC the Romans decided they wanted to rule the area and they sacked it and made it a part of the Roman empire. They called the area Judea. The Jews revolted several times and were soundly put down. Skip to 140 AD. The Romans renamed the area "Palaestina." That became Palestine in English. If the point you were getting is that the Palestinians today are not the same ethnic group as the ones there today, I agree. I didn't catch that from your post however. (I also don't see it as a relevant point. I am not the same ethnic group as the people that lived in North Dakota at that time, who cares.) If fact the region that covered southern Syria was called "Syria Palaestina ."

So now we have a whole bunch of people living in Palestine, but Jews were forced to flee (second Jewish Diaspora) and the ones that didn't were limited to Galiee. I would say that Pagans made up most of Palestine. Jeruselum was ruled by the Romans until the 300's. Then it was ruled by the by the Byzantine Empire (Eastern Roman Empire) until the 600's. During that time Pagans and Christians lived in the area. It was then conquered by Muslims in the 600's. They ruled the land until the 1900's. Quite a long time huh? Quite a bit more than the Jews. They generally allowed the Christians and Jews to keep their religions. Of course during this time we had the crusades. Sometimes the Jews would fight along side the Muslims to repel the Christian invaders. Saladin was known to treat the Christian and Jewish population much better than the crusaders treated the Muslim population.

From the at least the 1200's on Arabs have made up far and away most of the population in Palestine. (which would make them Palestinians) By 1914 the total Arab population in Palestine was at 615,000 while the Jewish population was 85,000. The English imperalists screwed up hardcore by promising the Arabs their own autonomous land if they fought against their Ottoman rulers (Lawerence of Arabia times) At the same time they promised the land to the Jews in the Balfour declaration.

So after WWI, the Ottoman empire was split up in the interest of two imperial powers (France and England) the US actually demanded eventual independence for the areas. The French got Syria, the English got the Iraq and Palestine. They wanted to keep Palestine away from the French so they decided they would use the Balfour declaration as a mandate for Palestine because they thought the Americans would go along with that. It is also helpful to remember that the Zionist movement has been building since the late 1800's. They had been lobbying the English to get something like the Balfour Declaration. (most Jews didn't agree with it though) The Arabs saw this as someone trying to take away their country. This leads us to the modern conflicts.

I can see how Arabs would view this as their land. I can see why the Jews want a homeland. I support a two state solution. Israel clearly doesn't. The US clearly doesn't. The Palestinians aren't from trans-Jordan anymore than an American is from Canada. We have similar backgrounds, as do they, but we are different.

I have friends and family from this area (my sister in laws grandfather fought in one of the Arab revolts against the English in Iraq) and I have talked about it many times.

One of the main reasons I associate with the left is because I am anti-imperalist. Imperalsim screwed this land up.

I hope you don't believe any racist nonsense about how there weren't any Arabs there when Israel was formed in 1948. There are hundreds of thousands of refugees that have still not been able to go home. That is real anti-semitism. I have talked to Jews that agree with me.

As I wrote earlier, "Now, I know better than to waste my time with you and for that I thank you," which is why I will keep this short, but I will say that I am neither Jewish, Zionist nor racist and that your account of history requires so many corrections that you reveal yourself to be an uneducated man with the intellectual depth and honesty of a squirrel's testicle. As Aristotle pointed out, over 2300 years ago, one has to know with whom to speak or evey conversation is bound to degenerate.

I love how a post about a penis pump prompted the history of Israel.

Anyway, I am no intellectual, I am a factory worker. I like to debate online and I have found that name calling pretty much means a lack of a sound argument.
