She Blamed Islamophobia, Then Her Husband was Arrested for Weapons Smuggling

In April, the Los Angeles Times ran an op-ed complaining that Muslims were being singled out in airports. “Does the 4th Amendment apply to Muslim citizens at LAX?” Lubana Adi, its author, fumed.

Adi, a Syrian, told a sob story about visiting her “aged mother” and two brothers who were refugees in Turkey. Then airport security “groped” under her Hijab and demanded that she empty her purse. They wanted to know why she had visited a border city and where all the money she was carrying had gone.

“President Trump’s new security regime wastes yet more of our time and our taxpayer money and shows outright scorn for the spirit of the 4th Amendment,” Adi complained.

The Los Angeles Times felt that the story was so important that it needed to be referenced in future pieces as an example of the abuses that Muslims face in this country.
