Why Are Muslims @ the Border So Protective of Their Electronics?

By Debbie Schlussel
Today, USA Today has an editorial whining about Customs and Border Protection agents searching people’s laptops and handheld devices at the Canadian and Mexican borders. (Michael “Serpenthead”/”Mr. Burns” Chertoff has a very limp op-ed in response.)
Given that various of these electronics have been used to blow up Americans abroad and could be used to do the same here–and given that terrorists use laptops to plan their attacks, I’m not sure what the problem is here. Except that the ones do the loudest whining are Muslims.
USA Today doesn’t tell you that in its ACLU-esque editorial today, but it did in a cover story just after Independence Day. The story was about Jawad Khaki, a British Muslim (USA Today won’t admit in the story that he’s a “Religion of Pieces” member) who expatriated to the U.S. and frequently travels abroad. He bitched about the fact that his smartphone has been repeatedly checked at the border. And to make the point of how faux-patriotic he is, like many Muslims after 9/11, he poses in front of an American flag. Awww, touching.


Muslim Faux-Patriot Supermodel:

Jawad Khaki Doesn’t Want Feds to See His Smartphone @ Border

Khaki’s an upper class executive, after all, and they would never–nevah evah!–commit terrorism, would they? Especially a British Muslim who repeatedly travels in and out of America. Nope, not your ideal candidate for an evil-doer. Methinks Jed Clampett and his nephew Jethro are far more likely to blow up Americans for Allah than a British Muslim who goes on mysterious trips in and out of America. Same with Grandma Josephine. She’s more likely to blow up Americans with her electronic heart monitor than a British Muslim guy named Jawad with his smartphone.
And listen to the torturous, hurtful “harassment” Mr. Jawad has had to subject himself to, all in the name of that unimportant thing called national security:

“I’ve had to unlock my phone and show them my scheduled tasks, calendar and contacts,” said Khaki, 50.

Wow, can you believe they put this formerly-British Muslim through such horrible treatment? So sad, too bad. I feel like I have to cue up the Ron Burgundy scene from “Anchorman,” in which he tells us how important he is.
It’s much ado about nothing. If this Muslim man is upset they check his smartphone, here’re a few tips: 1) Don’t bring it. 2) Don’t travel. 3) Go back to Britain, where Muslims have free reign and your phone won’t be checked by puppies wearing booties.
And you have to wonder why Muslims at the border are so protective of their electronics. What are they hiding? Don’t forget that the two smiling “Just Fireworks” Muslims caught in a terrorist plot in South Carolina were using their laptop when they were caught by state troopers.
If Mr. Khaki is so upset and inconvenienced at the border by opening up his phone for a few seconds of examination, he ought to try flying. Then, he’d have to join the rest of us and find out that we have to take our shoes off, walk on the scuzzy floor barefoot, and open up our laptops to a chick with a TSA badge, who sometimes–in the case of Detroit–is wearing a hijab. Now, THAT is real degradation.

This line,from the USA Today editorial, is pretty funny:
“Customs should detail standards, safeguards for device searches.”
Instead of giving the the details of how our security works, why don’t we just tell them how to evade it directly?

The question you should be asking is why is Homeland Security or any security agency at that matter hiring muslims who refuse to comply to the background checking and electronic device searching policy? I find it rather contradicting. If Mr. Khaki has nothing to hide, then why does he seem very worried about his paraphernalia being screened? When will Homeland Security take a reality check before all this genuflecting ultra relativism towards muslims with questionable backgrounds comes back to nip them real hard in the butt?
Beware of white Irish nuns and paraplegics! That why we need more muslims in the security personnel working around the clock to protect us.If they were once al qaeda operatives, I’d feel even more secure and assured that someone is actually looking out for me.Now I can sleep better knowing there is a bloodthirsty terrorist looming over me to cut my throat in my sleep.

To me this constant complaining by Muslims is proof they are not loyal and do not love America. They show no tolerance.
If only white Catholics were blowing up citizens of X country and were a small but growing minority of that country, and I were a white Catholic citizen of that country, I would WANT to be searched at customs. . .because my life would be in danger of a terrorist attack as well. I would THANK them for showing vigilance by searching all white Catholics since suicide bombs don’t discriminate.
The fact that Muslims show no understanding of the security situation is proof that they do not consider themselves to be American and that they sympathize with or are terrorists themselves.

Jethro was Jed’s nephew, not his son.

Because Chertoff and Mukasey, both Isreali/US dual citizens are running the security in this country and slowly but surely the constitution of this country is being violated. The US is gliding down that slippery slope of non freedom and non liberty to that of police state with the help of fear mongoring from Cheroff. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated is not something alien to the US, it’s what makes up it’s cohesive fabric and it’s part of the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Hey,uh, backwards,stuck-in-the-7th-century mooslims: you do know that you backward thugs and psychos didn’t – and never could have in at least another 1,000 years – invent all those wonderful electronic devices that you abominate by using to slaughter innocents and blow up things,like so many other White/Western-made inventions – and no,your “god” Allah(A-Liar)did not send you them from Heaven,like the Koran was(NOT).

I wonder what kind of security he runs into when traveling to the middle east? Wonder if he gives the security in Amsterdam a hard time. HELL NO! They would deal with him. Two years ago I went through Amsterdam and was impressed with their organization and professionalism. Not to mention their hygiene (for the most part).

Why shouldn’t they make constant demands on us, if we’re going to bend over constantly? Why should they respect us any more than we respect ourselves? They’re laughing at us, because we’re stupid and weak.

I am a white Christian 20-year army veteran who loves America. Customs and Border Protection not only downloaded all my files when I was returning from a military conference last month (I am now a civilian working for a defense contractor), they corrupted the hard-drive on my laptop. I also believe in the Constitution, and I find this idea that they can “open” our electronics to be more than a little troubling. How happy will I be when the Obama Customs Patrol decides that the pamphlets I distribute for my ministry on the Culture of Life are a “threat” to security and confiscate them?
