    Jihad Watch Muslim screaming "Allah is great" arrested after causing disturbance, tackled by other passengers on Continental flight to Houston

    "Two Middle Eastern men" on a Continental flight from Portland to Houston.

    One of them was causing the major portion of the trouble. "He was screaming, 'Allah is great, Allah is great,' you know, and it kinda worries you when all of that happens..." says a passenger on the flight in the video above.

    The KHOU story (thanks to Robert) doesn't mention this, and says the flight turned around and landed back in Portland because one of them wouldn't obey the "No Smoking" sign.

    Also in the video above: "TSA did tell 11 News that it was not a security issue." Uh huh. It never is. Go back to sleep, folks

    On Portland news this was reported as a "Man refused to give up his E-cigerette" no mention of "Allah Akbar!"

    My guess is the guy was pissed and yelled that to be a smart ***. In any case, he's an idiot for wanting to screw around with his e-cig on a flight.

    That's kind of my take on it too. In the video I saw he was grinning as he was being escorted off the plane, like it was some kind of big joke. Methinks he will find out it isn't.

    I've been on a few flights where passengers were invoking Allah, and Jesus, and Krishna, and I think Ganesha.

    Amazing how a little rough weather will get people exited.

    *facepalm*

    Why's it gotta be about a Jihad and not about a moron breaking the rules? Seriously, people.

    So if you act like a moron and yell "Allah is good" you are involved in a Jihad? If someone yells "Praise Jesus" are they about to shoot a doctor or blow up a clinic?

    Unruly Passenger Swung at Flight Attendant, Said He Hated Women, & Sang of Bin Laden
    Posted on February 23, 2012 at 6:52am by Jonathon M. Seidl Print
    Yazeed Mohammed Abunayyan (AP)
    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A Saudi Arabian teenager has been indicted on charges of interfering with a flight crew after authorities alleged he tried to hit fellow passengers, took a swing at a flight attendant and referred to Osama bin Laden during a flight to Houston.

    Police arrested 19-year-old Yazeed Mohammed A. Abunayyan on Tuesday night at Portland International Airport after his Continental Airlines flight turned around after the incident.

    A cousin said that his relative suffers from schizophrenia, was flying home to see his sick mother and hasn’t taken his medication for three weeks.

    The cousin, Fahad Alsubaie, 21, told the Medford Mail Tribune he was escorted off the plane with Abunayyan. Alsubaie said the disruption began after a flight attendant confronted the two for sitting together, because Alsubaie was in the wrong seat.

    “I was going to ride back with him, just to make sure he was safe. They didn’t want us to sit together,” said Alsubaie, a Saudi Arabian exchange student studying English at Southern Oregon University in Ashland.

    Wednesday’s indictment said a flight attendant asked Abunayyan to stop smoking an electronic cigarette, but he refused. He’s also accused of yelling profanities and swinging his fist at the flight attendant, and also hitting or attempting to hit several passengers.

    Abunayyan also spoke or sang about Osama bin Laden and his hatred of women, the indictment said.“When they asked him to stop the cigarette … he just went crazy, I couldn’t stop him,” Alsubaie told the Mail Tribune.


    Passenger Mark Foster told KGW-TV that he and others aboard the flight were prepared to take action.

    “You could tell buckles were off,” he said. “People were already leaning toward the aisles.”

    The flight crew had a problem with a belligerent Saudi Arabian passenger who was yelling about terrorism, according to authorities. view full article

    Asked whether the FBI considered Abunayyan a terrorism threat, spokeswoman Beth Anne Steele noted that the indictment was on interfering charges, not terrorism.

    Ashland police believe Abunayyan is the same teenager who led police on a slow-speed chase in the Southern Oregon town Sunday, ramming two police cars and nearly hitting a pedestrian. He was accused of drunken driving and assaulting an officer and was released on bail Monday.

    The cousin said he was the person hanging out the driver‘s side window trying to pull the key out of the car’s ignition while Abunayyan was driving away from police Sunday in Ashland.

    “When I asked him about what he did in Ashland, he said, `Not me, other person inside me,’” Alsubaie told the newspaper. “He thinks he has a different personality.”

    Abunayyan appeared in court Wednesday afternoon to hear the charges and was assigned an interpreter who translated the proceedings into Arabic. His attorney, Phil Lewis, said in court that he needs more time to meet with Abunayyan before he enters a plea.

    “His English is not good enough,” Lewis said. “I’m unable to ascertain issues of competence.”

    Abunayyan started attending the Sonoma State American Language Institute at Sonoma State University, north of San Francisco, as a Saudi Arabian exchange student in September, institute director Helen Kallenbach told the Medford paper. He was studying to improve his English before beginning classes at the university, she said.

    “He was very sweet, but he was a pretty disturbed young man,” Kallenbach told the newspaper. “During the last week, he just started to crash and burn – we had been concerned about him.”

    Alsubaie said Abunayyan heard the news about his mother about a week ago.

    So he heard about his mom a week ago but was off his meds for 3 weeks and was in the act of fleeing prosecution for ramming police cars in Ashland when he started his attack on board the airliner. Why was he NOT BACK ON HIS MEDS? Was he ever on meds? Another Case of Instant Jihad

    So charge the cousin,Alsubaie, with reckless endangerment with a skitzo.
    Why,after what happened just a few days earlier,would you expect your cousin to behave inside a close environment like a plane?
    Maybe not jihad,but he may be a future candidate.A big dog kennel and a ticket to SA sounds like the answer to me.

    Can't say I remember the last time someone was yelling "Praise Jesus" as they were shooting up an army base or trying to down an air plane, or trying to blow up Pioneer Square, or blowing holes in the side of an aircraft carrier, or blowing up an embassy, or a few buildings in New York City, or trying to enter the White House with a vest. And to tell you the truth, I really can't remember the last time someone shouted Allah Akbar just before helping an old lady cross the street

    Yeah, them Christians, blowing up PPL, rapeing boys, selling young christian girls to other christians, flying planes into buildings, beheading Jewish journalists while screaming "God Is Good!", hanging corpses from bridges, All because the Bible tells em to do it
    See the differance? The only reason Muslims are not blowing up abortion centers is because abortion centers kill christians. as for shooting doctors, Muslims do kill doctors, but they prefer to use a knife to cut thier heads off. The Koran DEMAMDS Sharia, Sharia DEMANDS JIHAD, get it yet?

    *ahem*

    I am Muslim. Can't rightly recall the last time I started a Jihad...

    At this point I'm asking the mods to shut this crap down. It started off as religious hate mongering and has devolved even further. This is a subject that never brings about reasoned discourse.

    Vomit. "Our" book is every bit as bad as "their" book. Murder, rape, slavery; so cut the 'Muslims are all into hate and killing crap' because the Koran demands it.

    Ignorant nonsense. Last time I checked, 'we' were doing all the murdering. Decades of slick propaganda has just convinced Americans otherwise http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSPUQjxQem0

    Close this crap down. Agree with Darkminstrel 100%.
