Stewardess makes fuss: no bibles allowed on flight?

You'd think, as an international flight attendant, you'd get used to rules of different countries:

On its web site the Foreign Office says of Saudi Arabia: "The importation and use of narcotics, alcohol, pork products and religious books, apart from the Koran, and artifacts are forbidden."

But nooo... she's gotta make a fuss. If it was part of my religion to carry around a stick of dynamite, could I sue for not being allowed to take it on a plane? How about if I always carried around a bag of fruit or had a pet I wanted to take with me on the plane for religious reasons? (Note: often foods & animals are quarantined for health/environmental reasons... someone brought a bunny to Australia once, and that was a bad plan) How is this stewardess making such a fuss over something that isn't even the airline's rules?

It's her right to indoctrinate whoever she wants to. Dontcha know..

I agree that from a western perspective, considering we allow people to bring any religious book that they want (being secular countries and all that), that it seems weird to some that it isn't reciprocated.

But what part of the word islamic "theocracy" did the woman have trouble understanding?
