    What if the people that trained the Muslims to fly had refused to teach them? There would be Thousands of people still alive and this would be a different place. They have the right to ask for instruction and he has the same right to just say NO.

    The gentleman who's the subject of this thread has come to the conclusion that all muslims are terrorists just because of their religion. That's about as un-American as you can get.

    I wouldn't teach anybody who called me an "infidel". I also wouldn't automatically reject someone just becasue of their religious (or ethnic, political, racial, sexual, etc., etc.) background. They would have to do something like call me an infidel for me to deny them their wishes.

    Maybe. And if nobody had taught Timothy McVeigh how to drive........and if nobody had let Bernie Madoff near Wall Street......

    When you get your crystal ball up and running, let us know.

    Well, this pot is certainly stirred. Unlike many Moslem countries the United States has freedom of religion. We also have freedom of speech. When I was teaching EMT's I had to evaluate whether or not a student was the type of person that should be allowed to be licensed. Now, I can't imagine that I would ever deny someone admission to a class because of their race or religion. But, with Moslems at war and committing acts of terrorism on every continent I can see how a weapons instructor that did not have the resources to do an in depth background check on every student might err on the side of security. This guy is not the only instructor out there and I would guess that a number of them are moslem so I doubt that he is effectively denying anyone training. I might also suggest that a precedent has already been set with heightened criteria for admittance into flight schools and they have been given access to Federal resources.
    I am white. I live in an area where that is a minority. I have been on the dirty end of the stick of prejudice for most of my life. I choose to live where I do so I don't let it bother me. I also do not spend my money with someone that has expressed distain for me. Since, apparently, this guy lives in an area with few if any moslems the question of him affecting the ability of any moslem to obtain training seems moot. If I am correct it then becomes a question of freedom of speech. Were I a moslem you couldn't pay me to take his class. So, should a moslem from outside his area sign up for his class, just to prove a point, and gets rejected I see them as part of the problem.
    This is an interesting and complicated issue. I have chosen my side. For those of you who differ in opinion I do understand and respect your choice. For most of us I think it comes down to how we weight the issues here. Some will be so emotionally charged that they will not see all the issues or they will give little weight to many of the arguments. I expect people like this on all sides of the issue. Thanks for sharing your opinions.

    Do you think that if the US-based instructors had refused to teach them, they would have just given up and said "Oh well, there goes that plan"?

    So going by your words all Muslims are the enemy.

    You need to quit thinking that way. Here is some knowledge to help you out it is a quote from the The Art of War by Sun Tzu

    So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.

    If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.

    If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.
    So if you are not getting what it is that I am trying to point out to you. You fall under the last two and neither of them are good.

    So Muslims are not the enemy. The enemy is radical Muslims according to President Bush and V.P. D*cK Cheney.

    Do some study of Islamic faith and the teachings of Muhammad before you just go along with the media characterization that only the extremist Muslims are to be feared. Study the faith! Read the Koran. Or even easier, pick up one or two of the DOZENS of books out there that will teach you what Islam is really all about. Then you will see that no one who claims the Islamic faith can truly be of peace.

    Un-American, B2Tall? We will see. For your loved ones' sakes, open up your eyes while you still have the chance.

  11. If they were Talaban Muslim's I agree but American Muslim's Who is next? Remember during WWWII we put all Japanese Americans in Prison Camps. Just something to think about.
