Canada: Pearson Airport Staff Required to be Dhimmis

Gee, why don’t they just throw in free VIP lounge passes for all Muslims while they’re at it…

Pearson Airport Staff Required To Undergo Sensitivity Training

Ottawa, Ontario (AHN) – Border service officers at Pearson Airport in Toronto will undergo training to help them be more sensitive in dealing with Middle Eastern and Islamic passengers.

Training sessions for 500 border service officers have been organized by the Canada Border Services Agency to fine-tune their screening abilities, to enable them to respect the customs of international passengers, especially Muslims and Arabs arriving at Canada’s busiest gateway.

The courses will run from September to March 2009.

Canadian Arab and Muslim representatives said they welcomed the courses. Mohamed Boudjenane, executive director of the Canadian Arab Federation, complained since the Sept. 11 attack “We became all potential terrorists without doubt, and we still have some examples of people being picked up from the line because they wear long beards or the hijab.”

[Gee, I don't recall any decrepit old ladies hijacking a plane, but I have seen old ladies "picked up from the line" for further screening... I, myself have been subjected to further screening when going through airport security.  And, I do seem to recall that the hijackers on 9/11 and those responsible for other recently thwarted terror attacks WERE Muslim, so, his argument is specious, at best...  Profile away!!!]

Boudjenane said the courses are the result of the group’s lobbying.

Other efforts to improve the airport’s services in various Canadian gateways include the recent extension of border services at the airports in Moncton, Fredericton and Charlottetown to 16-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week. It will cost the federal government $1 million a year to fund the service extension.

    Will they be required to pass out guns to these people too?

    I can’t think of a bigger waste of time than “sensitivity training”. Stupidity has become a growth industry.

    Looks like tnr needs sensitivity training for bringing us this story. It has nothing to do with the Koran (as usual).

    Only kidding now!

    Didn’t they already turn the VIP lounge into a prayer room, or foot laundry or some such nonsense?

    It seems that decapitations are über-trendy this Summer:

    Police on the Greek island of Santorini have shot and injured a knifeman who decapitated his girlfriend and walked around the streets with her head.
