I must have missed this story on the local news. Allah be praised that Ace of Spades is on the interwebs looking out for us down here. It seems that the Dallas Police Department and the FBI are at it again, oppressing Muslim women simply because they wear scarves on their heads.
Sources said in February, Kimberly “Asma” Al-Homsi, 42, and Aisha Abdul-Rahman Hamad, 50, allegedly scoped out Dallas Love Field in a manner classic of surveying an area.
Al-Homsi was already under surveillance and is on the government’s no fly list since being involved in a road rage incident back in December of 2005. Officials said during the incident she held up an inert grenade and threatened another driver. Garland’s bomb squad reported they later found ammunition in her car.
“If I didn’t have a scarf on my head and it was a simple road rage I would not be on the terrorism watch list,” she said.
So let’s review:
- Two women in fatigues and traditional Muslim headgear are spotted measuring the concourse at an airport. Then observing flight operations through binoculars.
- Said airport is within sight of the glittering skyscrapers of beautiful downtown Dallas, including the 70 story Bank of America building.
- One of those women had previously been involved in a road rage incident involving grenades and ammunition which landed her a spot on the no-fly list and ongoing surveillance.
Really. Nothing to see here folks. I mean come on, what Muslim woman in their right mind wouldn’t be wildly interested in the History of Flight museum at Dallas Love Field? And after getting so pumped up by all that aviation history and concourse walking decide to rest a bit while observing take offs and landings through a pair of binoculars they just happened to have handy?
One thing I should point out to Kimberly “aka Asma” Al Hamsi, if she had an encounter with the Garland Police Department and only ended up on the no-fly list she should consider herself fortunate. The GPD has been known to put people on the no-walk or in extreme cases the no-breathe list.
