Delta airlines recently removed two imams from a flight headed to North Carolina, because passengers felt uncomfortable with their presence -- both clad in Islamic attire. They went through security, even went through secondary security, and got on the plane and were taxiing out. But then, they were taxied back...'TSA came on and pulled them off and said the pilot was refusing to fly with them because passengers were uncomfortable with them"

1. Please sign the petition to send a message that this is unacceptable behavoir from their employees, and that they need to institue policies to make sure it doesn't happen again.

2. Call Delta at 1-800-221-1212 and complain!

      One moment it's Chinese, the next Russians then on to Muslims. The paranoia is the real enemy and it's not right to judge a book, or person by their cover. People threatened by traditional dress should get out a little more before imposing their fears on innocent people,not have special treatment from the airliners BTW, I ban your airline already because your animal cargo policies and loses..

      This is a joke? If passengers felt uncomfortable, then themselves have to change their planning on travel!
