This from the weekend’s London Daily Mail via Fox News: “Arab princesses kicked off British Airways plane to jeers and whistles after refusing to sit next to male strangers.”
The princesses, wearing traditional Arab dress, were returning from a day’s shopping in Milan.
The news account didn’t identify them as Muslims but Qatar’s Arab population is 100% Muslim, and, these pampered little darlings were part of the Qatar royal family so it is pretty safe to conclude they were nothing but more of the same tribe of Islamic radicals that seem to scurry around demanding the rest of the world obeys them.
The women, all relatives of the oil-rich emir had seats in business class in a party of eight on the packed airplane which included their clan’s chief and an entourage of cooks, servants and other staff.
Let me get this straight; It sounds like we have three pouty, rich, Arab females being escorted around southern Europe on a shopping spree, when, on a British flagged carrier no less, they demand their seating be rearranged because the customs of Qatar don’t allow women to mix with men who are not their relatives.
When airline officials finally booted most of this herd of Arabs, the furious passengers whistled and clapped as the captain ordered the women to be escorted off the sweltering plane which had been delayed nearly three hours over the incident.
One wag was quoted as saying, “I’m glad they finally got the boot. It’s too bad it wasn’t done while the airplane was in flight.”
