Northwest Airlines - Spineless Capitulators

Some background:

DETROIT — A group of Detroit residents is threatening to lead a boycott of Northwest Airlines over what they say is a pattern of profiling against Muslim passengers.

Imam Hassan Al-Qazwini, head of the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn, Mich., was in a group of about 40 pilgrims who were prevented from boarding a connecting flight in Germany to Detroit on Jan. 7 while returning from a trip to holy cities in Saudi Arabia. The Muslim group, most of whom are Lebanese-American Shiites, held a news conference Tuesday at the Dearborn mosque to describe what they say happened to them. They called for Northwest to apologize, compensate them, and discipline the employees they said profiled them.

They arrived at the gate 20 minutes prior to boarding time and sulk and whine about not being let on. Hmmmmm. What happens next in this lurid tale?

The Michigan office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) announced today that Northwest Airlines is offering an apology and limited financial compensation to a group of 40 American Muslim pilgrims who were allegedly denied passage on a January 7th flight returning to Michigan.

Lets be honest. This has nothing to do with racial profiling. It has nothing to do with discrimination. It has to do with a group of people who special benefits conferred upon them. It has to do with a group of religious thugs trying to bully there way past the ruled an get paid for it in the process.
