Cargo Apartheid: UK Muslim Airport Porters Refuse to Handle

Quote:
Cargo Apartheid: UK Muslim Airport Porters Refuse to Handle Israeli Luggage

By Debbie Schlussel

This outrageous story from e-mailer Beryl Dean has been verified and is absolutely true:

My friend Miriam Bedein traveled to Britain early in April. She arrived on British Air from Israel, and as she arrived at the baggage claim, she observed that there were no porters at the site.

She asked what was happening of the gentleman who was taking her to the baggage carousel, and he said "Ooh, the porters are Muslim and they will not handle any luggage coming from Israel" (In Britain, the porters take the luggage off the carousels and take them to your cab, etc.) While it was not his job, the gentleman was kind enough to get her luggage for her.

She is writing British Air about this incident, asking why they tolerate, and what they are doing about, this unacceptable situation.

First of all a passenger arriving from Israel is not neccessrarily a Jew and secondly don't porters in the UK keep an updated resume incase they have to apply for a different line of work.
