It's All In The Name...

You can consider yourself lucky not to carry a Muslim name. For those who can't understand my spelling -- spell it - Moooslem or Muzzies for short.

Because if your name is slightly Moooslem, you can be arrested, hassled and denied entry in any of the "civilized" western countries.

But if your name is Christian, Hindu, Shinto, Jain, Buddhist, Jewish, they will let you through - provided that the passport control officer is not some fucking ignorant moron (like the rest of the majority, may I add) who can't tell the difference between a Sikh and a Moooslem. They're all turbaned, after all. Aren't they ?

It doesn't matter if you are young or old, ordinary or famous. You will have to go through security checks - and trust me they will check you out, in the most minute of details...and they will probe, and question and interrogate and if need be strip and give you the finger. Maybe you are hiding WMD's or some secret Al-Qaeda codes for terror networks, up your butt hole. One never knows. And here, they are giving you the benefit of the doubt and I am assuming -- you will not disappear, be hijacked, abducted...as part of some extraordinary rendition - put on another secret flight and headed towards a torture dungeon, where you can finally confess how envious and jealous you are of their Freedoms, Liberties and Rights.

After all, national security is primordial to protect the decent, law abiding, peaceful, citizens of the U.S from Terror, from all those terrorists that pathologically envy you. What a disgusting jealous, envious, backward bunch they all are - coveting your freedoms the way they do.

Even if you are one of the most popular figures in some third world dump of a country, like some famous actor, internationally known, you will still get arrested and denied entry because your name is Moooslem.

Take for example Shahrukh Khan - the Bollywood jack of all roles - he was not spared either.

"An Indian movie star has complained that he was singled out for interrogation at a US airport because of his Muslim name.
Shahrukh Khan was travelling to Chicago to attend a parade to mark India's independence day when he was detained for two hours at Newark airport in New Jersey.
"I was really hassled perhaps because of my name being Khan. These guys just wouldn't let me through..."

I wonder how many others would not let be through in the name of protecting your civil liberties, in the name of the war on terror, in the name of...

You fill in the blanks, you fill in the rest of the dots on the empty lines.... because am sure you will have another hundred excuses and reasons why this is so - except for the real one.
