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.
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.
