This incident happened in December of last year.

A Muslim man was removed from an American Airlines flight after a flight attendant publicly announced his name, seat number and said she would be “watching” him.

Mohamed Ahmed Radwan had boarded a plane in Charlotte, North Carolina and the flight attendant went to the tannoy and said: “Mohamed Ahmed, Seat 25-A: I will be watching you.”

The employee made no other announcements about any other passenger.

Mr Radwan asked the employee why she had made the announcements. She reportedly responded that he was being “too sensitive”.

The passenger then reported the incident to two other American Airlines employees.

He was told he must leave the plane as he had made the first air stewardess “uncomfortable”.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations has filed a complaint about the incident, which happened in December last year, to the Department of Transportation after failing to resolve the matter directly with the airline.

Re: Muslim passenger kicked off American Airlines flight after attendant announced: ‘

Need more information ---- what did he say or do that made her uncomfortable?

From what the article said, the passenger did nothing to provoke the incident, other then simply boarding the flight as a passenger.

Re: Muslim passenger kicked off American Airlines flight after attendant announced: ‘


Muslims have done this to themselves. And they should understand that until terror stops people will be suspicious. There are reformers out there that wish to rid Islam of the politics, like Sharia and the jihad, and sexism and concentrate on the spiritual aspects.

A declaration was written in 1976, the St.Petersburg Declaration, that would accomplish this. Why aren't these so called peaceful Muslims signing on?

No. An ignorant flight attendant did it to a Muslim passenger. If, frankly, it's even true. Sounds pretty unbelievable to me.

Seems like there's probably more to the story than that. If it was just someone freaking out because he's Muslim, yeah that's pretty stupid.

What was he/she ignorant of? Certainly not the fact Muslims have been known to blow up airplanes. It was an overreaction based on awareness and fear.

No, it was based on ignorance and bigotry. Completely wrong. Honestly, I don't believe it's true. But it does make good fringe media fodder.

Publicly singling out a passenger is pretty rotten.

Re: Muslim passenger kicked off American Airlines flight after attendant announced: ‘

This anti-Muslim crap is ridiculous.

Eventually it will be: 'Muslim broke wind on plane. Authorities are looking into possible terrorist ramifications'.

People...most Muslims are just as good or bad as most other people. It is just the fringe whackos that do the whacko stuff.

Remember...Sandy Hook, Virginia Tach, Oklahoma City, Aurora, Columbine...all horrible mass killings inside the United States. All perpetrated by non-Muslims.

If you are going to run around the world kicking over ant hills (Iraq, Afghanistan, propping up Saudi Arabia, etc.) some of the ants are going to bite you. That is part of the deal.
France has done lots of ant hill kicking for decades...no wonder they are suffering the most from ant's biting them now.

Surely the flight attendant was immediately fired.

If he was planning a terrorist plot, publicly announcing he'd be watched wouldn't catch him.

Do you understand how anti-everything Islam is? All Muslims learn from the same book. And that does not mean all Muslims are terrorists. But unfortunately it is an option for all of them. That is not changing, unless Muslims change it.

Lip service, high minded academics, and politicians do nothing but avoid the root cause. The religion/ideology itself.

BTW, that fringe is now estimated at 9%.

Exactly. It supposedly happened last December, and CAIR decided to wait until the RNC to tell us all about it. I smell alqaraf.

Re: Muslim passenger kicked off American Airlines flight after attendant announced: ‘

There has to be more to this story

There is Fenton, it's called the Republican National Convention, and a group called CAIR, which is based in the good old USA but has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

It seems they were trying to resolve the dispute between the airline and the passenger, which would be private by default but since they failed to achieve a result that satisfied them, they’ve now made a complaint to the relevant authorities, which is a matter of public record by default. “Journalists” routinely monitor these kinds of public records for cases they think might make a “good” story, which is what appears to have happened here.

Given that we only have the initial complaint and a fairly standard statement from the airline, there is literally no way for us to reach any kind of rational conclusion about the incident. Of course, that won’t stop loads of people doing exactly that, filling all the gaps with their own preconceived biases.

In this Age Of Trump, it sounds quite credible to me.

A source called the "Independent"? People should not be dumb enough to fall for crap like this.

That is the same dangerous concoction your president, B. Hussein Obama, has been trying to fool Americans with for eight years. Muslim jihadists draw their inspiration right from the most orthodox texts in Islam. Their beliefs they follow are not an aberration from Islamic theology, but rather lie right in the middle of it.

If you are going to run around the world kicking over ant hills (Iraq, Afghanistan, propping up Saudi Arabia, etc.) some of the ants are going to bite you. That is part of the deal. France has done lots of ant hill kicking for decades...no wonder they are suffering the most from ant's biting them now.

That is standard collectivist propaganda. It is not far off the view of your president's fellow Marxist and former preacher of twenty years, Jeremiah Wright, that the U.S. brought 9/11 on itself: "America, your chickens have come home to roost."

Re: Muslim passenger kicked off American Airlines flight after attendant announced: ‘

You can read the complaint if you want - no need to rely on the source that reported on that same complaint: http://www.cair.com/images/pdf/CAIR_Letter_to_DOT_re_American_Airlines.pdf

Just saying, so far only one side of the case has been heard. Both the "Indepenent" article and your linked letter from an attorney only tell one side of the story. Of course the attorney is not going to bring up the other side's defense and have a slanted view. That is what they do. There is a whole lot more to this story than meets the eye and people always want to jump off the deep end whenever this crap comes up. The funny part is it is usually the liberals who brand someone guilty without a fair trial while in other instances they defend the accused as being innocent until proven guilty - such as white cops are always guilty of killing black people, etc.
