>He said that the airline told them that they would not be refunded the $13,340 cost of their flights. They were also forced to return everything they bought at the airport’s duty-free shops before being escorted from the airport.
>A British Muslim family heading for Disneyland was barred from boarding a flight to Los Angeles by US authorities at London’s Gatwick airport amid concerns of an American overreaction to the perceived terrorist threat.
>Senior politicians have been drawn into the case, warning that a growing number of British Muslims are being barred from the US without being told the reason for their exclusion.
>Comments by the Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump calling for a ban on all Muslims entering the US have also contributed to the tense atmosphere.
>“It’s because of the attacks on America – they think every Muslim poses a threat,” Mahmood said.
You're welcome Britcucks
>He said the children had been counting down the days to the trip for months, and were devastated not to be able to visit their cousins as planned.
>“I have never been more embarrassed in my life. I work here, I have a business here. But we were alienated,” Mahmood said.
Sounds like terrorists to me.
Not saying THEY are terrorists, but if you associate with terrorists (known to the US thru surveillance or what have you), if you associate with those people, YOU are just as bad. Even if you don't believe in those extremist tactics, you have the responsibility to report those people. And if you don't report, maybe you disappoint your kids and lose a shitload of money.
Even if the family attends the same mosque with known extremists....that would be enough justification for me. Muslims hear about extremist views from each other and don't report it. That's how the recent attacks were allowed to happen. Muslims, as a people, have to stand up and report someone when they hear of extremist views. Take responsibility. Until that happens, all Muslims can be viewed the same. Imo, of course
Don't waste your time on americucks anon. Innocent until proven guilty doesnt apply in the US anymore. Their fear and paranoia is driving a regression back to a legal system which more closely resembles witch hunts than democratic law
the article couldnt even spell their last names right or get the correct town they live in the 1st time around. They couldnt even provide evidence of them actually owning a business. Its a puff piece to further the journalists or papers political agenda.
I agree, highly unjustified. Fear and racial bias are plaguing the minds of the America.
But as much disdain I have for the weak minded people of this great country, I can't for the life of me see Islam as nothing more than a threat to our society. But I'm digressing to politics, forgive me for that.
>I can't for the life of me see Islam as nothing more than a threat to our society. But I'm digressing to politics, forgive me for that.
Muslims belong to a spectrum from liberal to extremist, there is an obvious connection between Wahabi/Salafist interpretations of Islam and terrorism and there are peaceful interpretations of Islam too that are not at war with liberal values.
>amid concerns of an American overreaction to the perceived terrorist threat.
Why didn't they just ask them to wear signs on the plane saying "Trigger Warning: I am a Muslim"
Glad to see that any person's potential discomfort is grounds for ruining an entire family's holiday vacation.
>guard shouts after them, "Sorry you picked the wrong religion!"
Innocent until proven guilty m8. In North Korea they arrest the families of defectors, and Israel tears down the family homes of Palestinian dissidents. Do you really want to go down that road of treating people guilty by association? Unless you have hard evidence that a person is planning to do something illegal you can't pull this shit. It's a violation of those fundamental rights the Republicans seem to be so fond of defending whenever a rich white guy is in trouble.
Well i believe its there own fault ,All muslims will be treated this way from now on And they should be ! They are a dangerous radical shit heads will little concern for our lives ..They wonder why they are treated this way !!Because Meh They are Terrorists at heart..Truth will always out Tell me im wrong
no fuck that
disneyland is a private place which has a dresscode and more shit you dont even know about.
trust me, disney wants to ban people dressed like religious ghosts because costumes are literally not allowed, but they cant legally do it because its a religious thing
i bet you anything disney even agreed to block them
they dont want muslim trolls shitting up the place.
people pay lots of money to have this quality american experience, which honestly doesn't include muslim garb
but yes, this is fucking hilarious
american criminals are britcuk watchdogs and private army
They at least should be refunded, everyone else would be refunded. This is utterly unforgivable for this airline to do this to this family. What, they think this guy is a terrorist? Well then detain the guy until he is checked out. It took a lifetime to save this much money for this family I think. WTF, how they supposed to get back now without the money to travel away from the fucking airport. This is fucked-up, royally.
Idk. Both parties seem intent on losing this. Trump just keeps getting worse and worse, while Hillary doesn't realize that feminism is going out of style, and her repeated sexism is driving male voters away.
It is because he has too many children, so he has no idea what they are up to.
Two of them had Facebook accounts that had praises for Taliban and Al Queda with terrorist sympathizing statements. They were able to trace the IP and confirm it did indeed come from their residential address in Britain, so it wasn't a prank account as the father claims.
He is now being like one of those fuckhead parents everyone hates.
>My little Johnny beat up a girl? You're wrong! There's no way my sweet boy would do this!
>WAHH WAHH WAHHHHH
holy shit shut the fuck up
they breed like rabbits, so they more than likely have some relative who's gone full jihad over in syria, so they're on the no-fly for obvious reasons. and that's assuming they're legitimately innocent. crying racism to the media does not absolve you of suspicion.
it's shitty that they don't get refunded, and weren't told about it, but shit does happens.
>not be refunded the $13,340
that's just for the fucking flight, and a trip to disneyland is a fucking arm and leg per person
That is easily 15 maybe 16+ grand. The amount of time it would take me to save up that kind of cash to take my family on a nice vacation to Disney, just for them to be told fuck off at the airport in their own country, without being refunded for anything
Oh my god you would never hear the end of me... That is just a loss I wouldn't be able to write off as "shit happens."
I get that they are muslims and from the UK and since Im a white amerifag I shouldnt give a shit, but still they are just some family that wanted a fun holiday and that is absolutely FUCKED what happened to them. Also why the fuck are we in british airports thats not our fucking job. This is what Trump has already done to America, it is so fucked and I am scared for the future. Innocent families will be prevented from going to Disneyland, innocent refugees who need a place to restart will be denied, while homegrown terrorists who hate america far worse and can do more damage will be killing people every other week
>There is no fundamental right to enter a foreign country
Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The US is bound by it, although it doesn't seem to be exercising it or any freedoms.
Pfft, so much for the land of the free. The frogs are freer than you.
And they call us Europoors, we pay far more money for everything than yanks, Brits go to america and spend very little and get very much for our money. Dollar is worth less than the pound.
we don't want american policing here, don't need to post a webm of the police brutality i'm sure you've all seen it, but have you seen this?
Are you guys all uneducated amerifags?
Does McCarthyism ring a bell?
Maybe the Red Scare?
Christ, I understand Amerifags not giving a shit - they can't be expected to know history (even their own) but I would've thought us Britfags would understand the importance of this case.
>Oh, your kids have terrorist shit on their Facebook? Guess what, faggot? No America for you.
Muslim kids have to go along with the 'all muslims are terrorists' jokes mate, because otherwise when Phil calls you a taliban goat fucker its racism, not just banter.
Loads of muslims do this man. Say they're terrorists ironically.
Also they're fucking kids, how can you take what they like on facebook seriously?
>If you think they're British, you're the problem.
I don't understand you dumb Britain First fags. You complain that Pakis dont integrate, and when they do you then say they're not British.
How are you British mate? Let me know. Fucking pedo scum
Well i believe its there own fault ,All Republicans will be treated this way from now on And they should be ! They are a dangerous radical shit heads will little concern for our lives ..They wonder why they are treated this way !!Because Meh They are Terrorists at heart..Truth will always out Tell me im wrong
So if america's plan follows through they are able to control who flies where, potentially all over the world and the officers are given the right to use deadly force with no repercussions.
This better be a joke.
