I'm not sure what you're getting at. The 19 hijackers, who half a decade ago started all this now irrational fear, are also dead (well, some of them have come forward claiming they're alive, but that's another thread).

Mcveigh is dead. I know that you know that but..how about some guy that is still alive.
I'm an expatriate living abroad and my work revolves around manufacturing and exporting between Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, so I fly A LOT. People speaking odd languages, wearing strange clothes, and exhibiting different religious customs in airports and everywhere else is a common experience for me and I've never asked that anyone be removed form a plane because of it. But to answer your question, would a bunch of white guys chanting something weird pique my interest? Sure. Would a few Muslims performing Muslim prayers pique my interest? No.
How about a group of white dudes. Gathered together, chanting in a way that you are not familar with. Getting on the plane together..Would it even pique your interest?

Why were the 6 passengers not allowed back on plane after screening?
Give good solid reasons for such drastic actions by airlines.
Senior CAIR employee Randall Todd Royer, a/k/a “Ismail” Royer, pled guilty and was sentenced to twenty years in prison for participating in a network of militant jihadists centered in Northern Virginia. He admitted to aiding and abetting three persons who sought training in a terrorist camp in Pakistan for the purpose of waging jihad against American troops in Afghanistan. Royer’s illegal actions occurred while he was employed with CAIR
CAIR's Director of Community Relations, Bassem Khafagi , was arrested by the United States due to his ties with a terror-financing front group. Khafagi pled guilty to charges of visa and bank fraud, and agreed to be deported to Egypt.
Khafagi’s illegal actions occurred while he was employed by CAIR.
On December 18, 2002, Ghassan Elashi, founding board member of CAIR-Texas, a founder of the Holy Land Foundation, and a brother-in-law of Musa Abu Marzook , was arrested by the United States and charged with, among other things, making false statements on export declarations, dealing in the property of a designated terrorist organization, conspiracy and money laundering. Ghassan Elashi committed his crimes while working at CAIR, and was found Guilty.
CAIR Board Member Imam Siraj Wahaj, an un-indicted co-conspirator in the first World Trade Center bombing, has called for replacing the American government with an Islamic caliphate, and warned that America will crumble unless it accepts Islam.
Rabih Haddad served as a CAIR Fundraiser. Haddad was co-founder of the Global Relief Foundation (“GRF”). GRF was designated by the US Treasury Department for financing the Al Qaida and other terrorist organizations and its assets were frozen by the US Government on December 14, 2001.
Consistent with Hamas ideology, CAIR has served as a conduit for the distribution of materials and funds from foreign nationals to groups and institutions within the United States for the purpose of promoting radical Islam and Hamas ideology,
and attacked Islamic clerics and scholars who reject radical Islam and the Hamas agenda.
