Jew kicked off Air Canada flight for praying

What a world we live in. Moslems are forbidden by law to be profiled despite the fact that they are terrorists who seek to kill or enslave all non-believers, but a Jew who's sitting in his seat quietly praying gets thrown off an Air Canada flight simply because he looks too Jewish.

Jerusalem Post - An Orthodox Jewish man was removed from an Air Canada Jazz flight in Montreal last week for praying, the Canadian Broadcast Corporation reported on Wednesday.

The man was a passenger on a Sept. 1 flight from Montreal to New York City when the incident happened. The airplane was heading toward the runway at the Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport when eyewitnesses said the Orthodox man began to pray.

"He was clearly a Hasidic Jew," said Yves Faguy, a passenger seated nearby. "He had some sort of cover over his head. He was reading from a book."

"He wasn't exactly praying out loud but he was lurching back and forth," Faguy told the CBC.

The action didn't seem to bother anyone, Faguy said, but a flight attendant approached the man and told him his praying was making other passengers nervous.

"The passenger did not speak English or French, so we really had no choice but to return to the gate to secure a translator," she told CBC.

Jewish leaders in Montreal criticized the move as insensitive, saying the flight attendants should have explained to the other passengers that the man was simply praying and doing no harm.

When Jews begin getting banned from the airlines for silently praying to themselves, while islamic vermin are permitted to walk to-and-fro without anyone able to legally profile them for being moslem, yes, we have a big problem. The police are concerned with stopping Jewish terrorists? JEWISH?? This is insane.

Now, I understand that seeing the Jewish morning prayers can appear very foreign for people unfamiliar with seeing the tallis and tefillin that's worn by men. Yes, seeing someone whispering the words from a prayer book while rocking back and forth is not something most people have ever seen before. However, it is certainly not harming anyone, or violating anyone elses rights, so how is it that this guy is kicked off the plane? It is OK to speak only arabic and read prayers from the Koran, but God forbid a Jew wants to read the Hebrew prayers from his siddur?

Remember when that vile, wretched moslem activist was temporarily not allowed on a JetBlue flight in New York (a couple days after the foiled London terrorist plot, mind you) because he was wearing a t-shirt with Arabic writing saying "We will not be silent", and was behaving in an aggressive and unruly manner towards the security officials at the gate? Remember how he was given a shirt to put on over his shirt and told he can get on the plane?

Well, he became an overnight celebrity with the pro-moslem dhimmis of the MSM, and has now got the ACLU advancing a lawsuit on his behalf. Where are all the calls of outrage and discrimination for this poor Jew? Why isn't the ACLU lining up on his behalf? Why isn't the MSM covering it as a front page story?
