WorldNetDaily: Muslims fear 'United 93' backlash

At issue: a middle-aged couple, having just seen the motion picture United 93, happened to spot three Muslim women wearing the traditional hijab as they, the couple, exited the theater. First they asked whether the three women were Muslims, and the women told them "yes." The couple then, according to one of the women involved, hurled vulgar and obscene invective at them, to the effect that they should shed their modest garb and betake themselves out of the country.

The trouble was that the raconteuse of this incident happened to be the office manager for the Arizona chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Now I don't condone the use of vulgarism or obscenity. And shouting invective at random serves no useful purpose.

But if CAIR is worried about a backlash from the movie, then they ought to consider that the movie recounts a real event--and that they themselves have ties to terrorism, even though no one has yet shown that they provided any logistical support to the hashshasheen of 9/11.

In other words: if you can't do the time, don't do the crime--nor associate with those who commit crimes of that kind.
