Another arabic anecdote

LGF points to this story where the imam doesn't think the blonde haired author speaks arabic. But she does:
Jihad comes to Small Town, USA

At that point, another student took the podium. His name was Khaled, and he began to recount his recent trip to New York City. [...] He told of how uncomfortable his trip up to NYC had been. [...] thought he was the victim of racial profiling.

Khaled and his friends were pretty unhappy about it, and while in New York, they came up with a plan to "teach a lesson" to the passengers and crew. You can imagine the story Khaled told. He described how he and his friends whispered to each other on the flight, made simultaneous visits to the restroom, and generally tried to "spook" the other passengers. He laughed when he described how several women were in tears, and one man sitting near him was praying.

The others in the room thought the story was quite amusing [...] The imam stood up and told the group that this was a kind of peaceful civil disobedience that should be encouraged, and commended Khaled and his friends for their efforts.
Oh what I would've given to have been on that flight...

Chalk it up to my overdeveloped white knight complex, but I would've had no problem confronting Khaled and his punk friends.
