Arabic Prayer on Airplane? Keep Silent!

A Muslim radiologist used poor judgment when he prayed aloud in Arabic aboard a passenger aircraft. See CBC News article. Now he wants compensation from the airline.

If he were an intelligent as I would want MY OWN radiologist to be, he would realize that prayers in Arabic (which may or may not have been recognized as prayers) were likely to alarm other passengers. It was bad judgment on his part.

I would rather the airlines err on the side of caution. After all, today's terrorist threats are from Muslim terrorists. Blaming the airline and raising a public stink ultimately aids the terrorists.
