Daily Mail tarring all Asians with the same brush

I resent being equated with a fucking Muslim terrorist. This is what the Daily Mail has done today...

The Daily Mail wrote an article about passengers fearing for their lives and having two Arabs speaking gents escorted off the plane. Some passengers just decided that either way any airline who would fly Arabs would not have their business and walked off.

The extraordinary scenes happened after some of the 150 passengers on a Malaga-Manchester flight overheard two men of Asian appearance apparently talking Arabic. Passengers told cabin crew they feared for their safety and demanded police action. Some stormed off the Monarch Airlines Airbus A320 minutes before it was due to leave the Costa del Sol at 3am. Others waiting for Flight ZB 613 in the departure lounge refused to board it. Half an hour later, police returned and escorted the two Asian passengers off the jet.

Go Google the article if you must find it, this blog will not link to craven cowards. Ok, lets examine the term Asian they used. Did they mean Jewish looking individuals? Perhaps. Did they mean Chinese looking individuals? Or perhaps the passengers were Mongolian looking, or Japanese looking or even Sikh with large turbans? Or did they mean Arab?

See, even the newspaper is afraid to name Arabs for what they are. If there was no fear of Arabs then they could have just came out and said it. So if the newspaper is so afraid of Arabic people then why the heck are they pretending to be surprised that the folks in Malaga were afraid?

To the passengers of flight 613, you were afraid and the press may villify you. At least, unlike the passengers of Flight 93, you live to fly another day. This blogger salutes you.
