Muslims strike at Paris airport

Unions at France's main airport, Charles de Gaulle in Paris, have threatened to call a strike over alleged bias against Muslim workers. Seventy-two workers, mostly Muslims, have lost security clearance at the airport since May 2005.

Officials say the Muslim workers posed a risk because of alleged links to groups with "potentially terrorist aims". So, Muslims are going to strike in a unified protest, in the name of political identity. That's what I call an irrational response to an irrational religion. To a Muslim, if you don't play by Muslim rules, you will pay by Muslim rules.
