JetBlue and the TSA

October 28, 2006

Here’s what Inspector Harris said, according to Jarrar: “You can’t wear a T-shirt with Arabic script and come to an airport. It is like wearing a T-shirt that reads ‘I am a robber’ and going to a bank.”

“It sucks to be an Arab/Muslim living in the U.S. these days,” Jarrar says on his blog. “You are a suspected terrorist and plane hijacker.”

“Mr. Jarrar was approached both by TSA and JetBlue personnel because they saw that customers in the area had noticed his T-shirt and were confused or concerned about it,” says spokesperson Jenny Dervin.
