Muslims on a Plane

As usual I am ridiculously late on this so you probably have heard about the praying Muslims taken off the plane after certain suspicious behavior was observed. Of course, as the media reported it, it was Muslims praying=suspicious behavior. However they moved to seats in a classic hijacker pattern. However further details made me think that these people weren’t hijackers at all. For example buying 1-way tickets and not going with any baggage seem like the thing that any competent hijacker would avoid. In addition no hijacker starts visibly praying, it is too risky. However, I think that people should definitely maintain their vigilance.

My guess is that these people didn’t do anything, but may have deliberately encouraged suspicion in order to create a controversy, on the other hand it may just be chance.
