SouthWest Airlines had to apologize to the perpetually outraged Terrorist Front Group CAIR for removing a Muslim woman from a flight. Oh well, better to be safe, THEN sorry!
AOL NEWS -Southwest Airlines is apologizing after a Muslim woman wearing a headscarf was pulled off a flight on Sunday because a flight attendant thought she heard her say into her cell phone: “It’s a go.”
Irum Abbasi, a San Jose University graduate student, was slated to fly at 8:15 a.m. from San Diego when she hurriedly finished a phone call to a Verizon representative by saying sharply, “I have to go,” said Edgar Hopida, a spokesmouth for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
The call prompted a flight attendant to report that Abbasi seemed suspicious and the captain announced the flight would be delayed. Minutes later, TSA agents boarded the flight and escorted the student off the plane.
“She went through the security check. She went through the secondary check because of her headscarf, which was fine. We learned that the flight attendant thought she said, ‘It’s a go.’ The flight attendant indicated she did not feel comfortable with the student on the flight,” says Hopida.
CAIR says the incident left Hopida “emotionally distraught and crying.” (Awwwwwww) The organization held a press conference demanding an apology from the airline at San Diego International Airport early this morning.
