https://en-maktoob.news.yahoo.com/two-men-kept-boarding-us-plane-speaking-arabic-023345180--finance.html?vp=1 This is obviously something that impacts me a lot. I travel once a year to and from the US currently, and usually it is with my wife who wears hijab and my 3 kids. Usually we are speaking Arabic to each other. In terms of policy I think it is absurd that because another passenger at the gate made a complaint that they are afraid to get on the plane because my wife and I are speaking Arabic (and obviously Muslim) that I am interrogated and treated as a criminal. I'm not sure what this means and how can passengers make him do anything, but even being asked nicely by a passenger to open a box that I have is not acceptable in my opinion (I would probably open it just to avoid someone accusing me saying bomb or something).. So, is that what the passenger thought she heard?? I will also remember not to watch any news on the plane.. I understand the heightened sense of fear, but what I don't understand is the inability of people to act like rational adults. This is exactly what the terrorists want, and we are giving them all they want on a gold plate..
