Remember those high-tech body scanners that were developed and deployed so as to catch the next group of terrorists trying to turn passenger aircraft into missiles or trying to light their shoes or underwear on fire? You know, that group that through bizarre coincidence just happens to consist of completely of Islamic/Muslim extremists? They’d rather not have to go through those scanners, thank you.
Saying that body scanners violate Islamic law, Muslim-American groups are supporting a “fatwa” — a religious ruling — that forbids Muslims from going through the scanners at airports.
The Fiqh Council of North America — a body of Islamic scholars — issued a fatwa this week that says going through the airport scanners would violate Islamic rules on modesty.
Do tell. Well, here’s a ruling I’d like to see enforced: go through the scanners or don’t fly. Period. And if you have a problem with these scanners from a modesty or religious viewpoint, take your complaints up with the people responsible for them being there in the first place – Muslim terrorist groups.
