Katherine Kersten in Opinion Journal sums up recent conflicts over Islamic law in Minnesota, where Islamic taxi drivers are refusing to transport passengers carrying alcohol and store clerks are refusing to handle pork.
The critical point regarding both these stories and the lawsuit by the imams who were removed from a U.S. Airways flight: "By piggy-backing on our civil rights laws, Islamist activists aim to equate airport security with racial bigotry and to move slowly toward a two-tier legal system. Intimidation is a crucial tool. The 'flying imams' lawsuit ups the ante by indicating that passengers who alerted airport authorities will be included as defendants."
The bold type emphasis above is mine; I believe we all need to be aware of exactly what is going on and what may well continue to develop in the years to come.
