Jarrar, a US resident, was apprehended as he waited to board a JetBlue flight from New York to Oakland, California, and told to remove his shirt, which had written on it in Arabic: “We will not be silent.”
|ACLU sues, wins $240K for Arab
who scared airline passengers(Agence France-Presse) An airline passenger forced to cover his T-shirt because it displayed Arabic script has been awarded 240,000 dollars in compensation …
He was told other passengers felt uncomfortable because an Arabic-inscribed T-shirt in an airport was like “wearing a T-shirt at a bank stating, I am a robber,'” the ACLU said.
Jarrar eventually agreed to cover his shirt with another provided by JetBlue. He was allowed aboard but his seat was changed from the front to the back of the aircraft.
And guess who’s paying for this award to the Arab – YOU ARE. Whenever the American Criminal Liberties Union wins a case, the American Taxpayer pays for it. This ARab is lucky Security didn’t hall his ass into jail. I’d get off any plane that allowed him to board in that shirt.
