Muslims: “You Can’t Touch Me There (or anywhere).”

OK. None of us (or at least most of us don’t) want nude pictures taken of us, and think some of the pat down techniques leave quite a bit to be desired, but that doesn’t give muslims or anyone else to right to just say “We ain’t playin’.”

“CAIR offered a “special recommendation” for Muslim women who wear a hijab, telling them they should tell the TSA officer that they may be searched only around the head and neck.”

Really? Why not just say “You can’t search where I have my explosives and weapons hidden.” If you don’t want to abide by the same rules the rest of us have to follow to fly, then I suggest you walk.
