Boing Boing - powered by FeedBurner: "Shoshana Hebshi, who describes herself as a "half-Arab, half-Jewish housewife," was aggressively cuffed and detained from Frontier Airlines Flight 623, then strip-searched, for the apparent crime of being ambiguously "ethnic"—and being seated next to two Indian guys she didn't know who got up to use the toilet.

On Sunday, 9/11/2011, Hebshi was held and questioned in a Detroit cell for several hours.

One can only presume they were racially profiled"
