On the “Flying Imams” Case

Filed under: American-Politics, From the Desk of Imam Mahdi Bray, Islamophobia — Tags: , — Imam Mahdi Bray @ 8:27 pm

Responding to the Court’s decision to go forward with the “Flying Imams'” lawsuit, I stated the following:

“Clearly the court did today what we at MAS Freedom have always urged the media and the public to do; ignore the Islamophobic hype and follow the facts. When we held the nationwide interfaith prayer-in and press conference at National Airport on behalf of the 6 Imams, we told the world that the Imams had done nothing wrong. We also made it clear that some members of the media – such as Fox News and Laura Ingram – had not seriously fact checked this case or their sources and were pandering misinformation and rumors.

MAS Freedom has always maintained that the facts would reveal that it was US Airways that had violated the Imams’ rights. The facts demonstrated that the Imams had been victims of religious prejudice and unwarranted hysteria . It is because of the facts and not the sentiment of fear and religious prejudice that this case has moved forward with merit. Truly facts are really stubborn things.”
