How do you know that?
The truth is, it happens all the time, especially in the UK, and a number of times in Canada and Australia. It's just not safe for the informants or smart intelligence work to publicize it. That said, it has been reported, usually at the trials of the losers whose plots were foiled.
If it wasn't for the good work of the very people you are maligning, some of the terror plots that have been foiled in recent years would likely have gone ahead.
Remember the "Underwear Bomber"? His own father tried to turn him in, and was ignored by American embassy officials in Nigeria.

She refused to be treated like a second class citizen. These men simply wore non western clothing, and were treated like second class citizens as a consequence. They even didn't take protest action like she did.

Neither did these 2 men. Are you saying they have some connection to violence, simply because they're Muslims?
Is dressing differently really such a provocation? Should Sikhs not wear their hats on "sensitive" days as well? After all, the average American doesn't know the difference.
The men passed security, and they complied with the extra security attention that their clothes and religion bought.
That being the case, how is it in any way OK that they were humiliated and inconvenienced due to the ungrounded fears of the other passengers and the air crew?

Is there a statute of limitations on that, or can I be an asshole to Muslims forever?

You're ok with innocent people being kicked off a plane after they've passed double security, and you think the people who want equality and logic to reign are somehow defending Big Brother and the National Security State?
...and they say Americans don't do irony.
