Ya see how people are?

When an Israeli ambassador is found bound, gagged and nekkedik, except for BDSm accoutrement, does anyone accuse him of hatching a dastardly plot? Is any ulterior motive attributed to him? Noooo.

It's understood that the guy has a hard job and needs some harmless, amusing diversion.

But just let a Muslim get on a plane with a magnet up his arse and a couple of wires sticking out of it and everyone is up in arms accusing him of being a terrorist concealing a detonation device in his hidey-hole.

Does anyone give the guy the benefit of the doubt? Nooooo. Maybe he was just taking some vocational stress and strain off by engaging in a little kink. Maybe he just likes the buzzzzzz when he goes through the detectors. Did anyone ever think of that? Nooooo.

The Israeli ambassador is lionized and the Muslim is demonized. It's a crying shame that people are so prejudiced, so narrow-mindedly niggardly of spirit.
