In the last few days, there have been two incidents on flights. In one incident, the story has been very clear in the media about what happened. In the other, not surprisingly, details have been sparse.
On May 6th, the pilot on an Atlantic Southeast Airlines plane, operating as a commuter for Delta, refused to take off with two Muslim Imams on the plane. The plane had departed the gate and then returned, as the pilot did not want the two on board his plane.
On May 9th, on an American Airlines flight, a Yemeni, Rageh Almursi charged the cockpit door, screaming “Allah Akbar.” Passengers and crew immediately fought back, subduing him until the plane could land.
Of course, there are two different media spins on the two different events.
For the Atlantic Southeast flight, the pilot is being spun as an insensitive bigot. The pro terrorist Council for American Islam Relations weighed in. The two Imams have gotten a lawyer and intend to file suit and seek monetary damages, as well as they said, “sensitivity training” for the pilot who refused to fly with them on his flight.
The American Airlines incident is stunning in contrast. American media have gone out of their way to avoid making the obvious conclusion. Politically correct Fox News said, “Authorities do not yet have a motive.” They then said a woman who speaks Arabic translated what is said as “God is great.” We all know what that is. It is Allah Akbar, which is what the jihadists shout before the murder people. It is the last words recorded from the cockpits of the jets on 9/11.
The motive is so simple a three year old could figure it out.
There are a lot of questions to be asked. Let’s start with, why was this Yemeni on an American flight? Yemen is a hot bed of jihadism. Last year, packages were mailed from Yemen with bombs in them to try and destroy airplanes. Yemen is believed to the hide out of Anwar Al Awaki, who, with the death of Bin Laden maybe the world’s most dangerous terrorist.
Perhaps the other question to be asked is why isn’t the pilot of the Atlantic Southeast flight being given a commendation?
The two Imams kicked off the flight might be the nicest guys in the world. They could be jihadist sympathizers. Who knows? Not every Muslim is evil, but guess what, when you are a member of a group that is not only evil, but one that has a sizable population that thinks killing infidels, particularly American infidels is a grand idea, you are not going to be treated like the citizen of the year.
Few Americans are going to have much sympathy for you. If you want our sympathy, clean up your religion or leave it. When your religion preaches and practices death to those who disagree with it, don’t expect America to bend over backwards for you. When your religion teaches that liberty and freedom should be overthrown so your theocracy can be established, whether we want it or not, don’t expect us to have much sympathy.
As we come up on the anniversary of 9/11, do not expect Americans to be too tolerant of you as you fly. We remember a lot of Americans who died ten years ago at the hands of your coreligionists.
We have not forgiven, nor will we ever forget.
Muslims have rights as special people, because of THEIR religious beliefs. The TSA does not search them!
Bet ya didn't know that our next attack would be from a Christian American, who get's patted down, along with his daughter, his mom and his gramma!
Tom, maybe you could shed some light on 2 situations we've encountered (would give us peace of mind next time we have to fly):
5 Middle Eastern pilots were at our gate waiting to board the plane--the gate attendant came around and attempted to give them gate check tags for their carry on bags (small commuter plane to DC)--they gave her a difficult time stating that it wasn't necessary for them to gate check their bags--she insisted--fortunately, the flight was canceled (mechanical reasons--or so we were told)--Question: as pilots, wouldn't they have known that their bags needed to be gate checked and wouldn't fit under the seat nor in the overhead compartment?
An elderly woman was sitting in the emergency row--when the flight attendant came around before take off and asked if she was willing to help in an emergency--woman said "no"--attendant asked her if she would mind switching with someone who would be willing to help--no--when asked to put her purse under the seat in front of her for take off--she again said no--pilot came back--made the same requests-she said no to him as well--he went back to the front of the plane--talked with security--back in the cockpit and we took off with the woman still sitting in the emergency--thanks goodness there was no emergency because she wasn't going to help--Question--why did he take off--why didn't he make her move; wasn't he putting the rest of us in jeopardy if there was an emergency or was it more impt for him to be PC? Thanks for your insight!
being middle eastern pilots they may not have been aware that the type of aircraft they were flying would not accommodate their bags in the cabin,but it sounds as if they had an attitude.
as to the elderly woman I hate to comment as I wasn't there ,but it sounds to me like the pilot took the easiest path to an ontime departure. He like I realized the safety risk of her holding her purse is negligible and not being able to help in an emergency would be to her disadvantage when she was being tossed out of the way by passengers attempting to evacuate.
Islam, "the religion of peace" , is just misunderstood don't you know. All those. stonings, hangings, beheadings, bombings, and murders, we just don't get it, its just their culture and we have to respect their culture right? It's what multi-culturalism is about, we're supposed to be diverse according to our "friends" on the left and their tools in the Ministry of Propaganda.
Yeah right, we know how well thats working out, Europes leaders decry multi-culturalism as a failure while their nations are over-run with babbling screaming savages practicing 7th century murder cult barbarism. In the mean time, right here in the United States Islam continues its march while the left's enablers cover for them. For once why doesn't the "effing" left listen to Europe and help us forestall the impending disaster? The answer is short and sweet, they are socialists and just like the Islamists, they want us dead.
The left are sociopaths and psychopaths as are their Islamist friends.
Steve, I called also, and spoke with a gal who told me how much the airlines appreciate every call on this. She said they NEED our support, because the media is not telling the whole story.....how did I know that already?????
I gave her my name and city and she said that this would be passed on to management. I would advise everyone to make that call...under 3 minutes, and worth the expression of free speech!
...I agree, we should all call Their number is 404-856-1433
I'm callin' right now!
Thank you, guys! Atlantic Southeast needed that!
MSM: Take THAT you literary liars!
"Clean up your religion" = reformation. This would be good if Islam was really a religion; it's so much more.
There's no info on why the pilot didn't want the 2 Imams on that plane? There must be some reason.
