The Terrorists are Winning

Murder in Samarkand… Confiscated

Don't bother picking up a political book if you're going flying now, security staff could confiscate it. Clearly travellers are only allowed populist pulp on board to read now, anything else makes us a security risk?
Sadly this is not an isolated story. A British Muslim airline pilot yesterday described the "humiliating" moment when he was hauled off a transatlantic flight just before take-off.
Amar Ashraf, 28, who was born in Wrexham, North Wales, said he felt " demoralised and humiliated" after being told to leave the flight from Manchester to Newark by a stewardess, and then being questioned by armed police. He believes his removal was down to having a "Muslim-sounding name". There was no other reason why Mr Ashraf should have been suspected of being a terrorist.
Incidents such as these are examples of how the terrorists have won.
