Muslim Woman Refuses Body Scan, Barred From Flight

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article7048576.ece

A Muslim woman was barred from boarding a flight after she refused to undergo a full body scan for religious reasons.

The passenger was passing through security at Manchester Airport when she was selected at random for a full-body scanner.

She was warned that she would be stopped from boarding the plane but she decided to forfeit her ticket to Pakistan rather than submit to the scan. Her female travelling companion also declined to step into the scanner, citing “medical reasons” for her refusal.

The two women are thought to be the first passengers to refuse to submit to scanning by the machines, which have provoked controversy among human rights groups.

I like what the Pope said:

"Last month he told an audience from the aerospace industry that, notwithstanding the threat from terrorism, “the primary asset to be safeguarded and treasured is the person, in his or her integrity”."

good for her!

I don't plan to fly again--ever.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

I love my "enemies"...

... they have the guts to stand up to stupidity... a real dilemma... governments can't be seen to be anti-Muslim faith... not politically correct... let's hope she wins...

This is interesting...

I would think that a lawsuit will follow for religious persecution. Secondly, I had understood that these scanners were only going to be used on flights going to the United States. I cannot imagine that a flight from England to Pakistan has to stop in Miami! This means that the British are using them for ALL flights to ANYWHERE. hmmmmm

Let's hope for more protest and more legal action on these nonsensical and evil machines.

I've seen a couple of reports

Expected and have seen a few reports of resistance by Muslims for religious reasons. Good for them! What a shame there is no 'Christian' resistance for the same reasons.

Trust in God, but tie your camel tight.

It is a joke

It is a joke when they claim the scanners were introduced "in response" to the underwear bomber.
They were ordered before, of course!
It is very likely the other way round.
The underwear bomber was ordered to introduce the scanners (sharp dressed Indian, FBI, false flag)

Good for the pope that he questions the privacy invasion.

5 stars

please in the future don't post the whole article -
