I thought it was just the ones from India. Erm, sorry.
I am reminded of the attacks on Sikh cab drivers in New York right after 9/11, because the ignorant thought that Muslims wore turbans. :shk:

I'm not a Muslim, and I'm offended by sniffer dogs too! First of all, I don't like dogs, and secondly I don't care to have some a stinky, flea ridden mutt sniffing my butt and crotch. The dogs are simply being used as a means of intimidating people.
If this type of invasion of privacy doesn't offend you, you're truly one of the sheeple I've heard so much about.
Ok, you don't like dogs. Stinky and flea ridden? I guarantee you these dogs are probably cleaner then most of the people using the public transport systems.
Sniffer dogs are not like regular police dogs. Have you ever heard of a sniffer dog savaging members of the public? They are hardly likely to be sniffing your butt and crotch either, unless you've stuffed a stick of something explosive up there. As an animal lover I often have to keep myself in check when having sniffer dogs walk by checking bags as they pass, my natural reaction is to hunker down and give their head a scratch.
They are also far less intimidating than a couple of HK touting rozzers giving you the evil eye.

While I don't give a damn if it offends them, I understand. Look, we all have a right to live on this planet, and to live that life the way we want. If that pisses off someone..So what. I am really trying HARD not to hate all Muslims, and that is no easy task. In the end they have a choice to visit here or not. I am offended that my wife would have to cover her head with a scarf if I wanted to visit them. So I don't go there. Their view of rights woman have make me want to stomp their heads in..But I won't go there.

Obviously you didn't read the article that the op posted that began this thread. Muslims are actively putting out an effort to keep dogs from sniffing them, after we are now forced to take off our shoes, and can't take liquids in containers over 2 oz, or carry a small pocket knife or nail clippers, all because of muslims.
My advice to Muslims who don't want to have to endure what everyone else now has to endure because of Muslims, is to not take an airplane, walk or ride a camel, or whatever. The arrogance of these people is astounding.

Like I said, if Muslim men would do the same to themselves, and cover themselves from head to toe, so that their manly beauty was treated just as sacredly, then I would buy the whole concept, or at least if Muslim men agreed to share in the same discomfort as their women by doing what they demand of their women, then I could understand.
My observation of Muslim men is that they are every bit as conceited as everyone else, and view themselves as being beautiful as well. If they can not stand that other men gaze upon their women ( a childish notion that shows complete lack of emotion control on my opinion ) then they should be as equally modest, and cover themselves from head to toe also.
Do you see the hypocrisy that I am pointing out here?

I agree, I am shocked at the amount of hatred and ignorance over one news report about nothing really.
What I see becoming a trend is the shamefull act of choosing sides, them, we they, we. They are gettin upset over a silly news report and making teams, us against them, I don't like that, and it worries me.
