Lions, and Tigers, and Muslims at the Gate! Oh, My!

In light of recent events, I thought it might be timely to rerun these posts, which include some insider tips on how to ease through the airport security screening process, in sha Allah. Despite privacy concerns, I’m in favor of the backscatter imaging machines. I went through one on my way to Ilm Summit this past summer, it was quick and easy.

When I worked for the Transportation Security Administration, I never liked patting people down, neither in a full body nor in a more limited way, and I certainly do not like others to touch me or to be required to do the long dress/skirt two-step shuffle at the security checkpoint.
