Southwest Airlines passengers aboard Southwest Airlines Flight 3683 were threatened with Islamic damnation when Ali Reza Shajsavari yelled they were all going to die and go to hell, “Allahu Akbar,” from the back of the airplane. The FBI thinks Shahsavari is mentally ill, and terrorism was not intended. Right. See my link at the bottom of the article.
“You’re all going to die,” a man dressed in black screamed at passengers Tuesday afternoon. “You’re all going to hell. Allahu Akbar,” translated as God is great in Arabic.
Federal authorities arrested Ali Reza Shahsavari, 29, of Indialantic, Fla., onboard the Boeing 737 after pilots made an emergency landing at Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport at 3:30 p.m. He is being held in the Randall County jail on a federal charge of interfering with a flight crew.
Shahsavari went into a bathroom and yelled obscenities from the rear of the plane, said passenger Doug Oerding, of Sacramento, Calif. Attendants tried to calm Shahsavari before a female flight attendant finally succeeded in quieting him. Oerding said.
As the tension mounted, the aircraft began to gain speed and descend, Oerding said. The slender Navy veteran said he put his shoes back on in preparation to act.
“All of us guys were looking at him like, ‘Are we going to have to do something?’” Oerding said after finishing a cigarette outside the Amarillo terminal while waiting to reboard the plane.
Amarillo Aviation Director Patrick Rhodes said an emergency call was placed about 3:30 p.m. to the control tower at Rick Husband. The caller initially reported a male passenger was attempting to break into the cockpit, Rhodes said. Amarillo police said the call came from the cockpit.
“He was being disruptive and unruly on the flight, but he was not specifically trying to break into the cockpit,” Rhodes said.
When the plane reached a gate at the airport, police boarded it and arrested Shahsavari without incident, Neufeld said.
The FBI thinks he’s mentally ill. How many times have we seen Arab men act out in this or similar ways since 9-11-01? Many, many times, and each time we hear, or assume, that the “act” is so outrageous he must be mentally ill. That’s what 1,400 years of incest will do for you. If this man lives in the U.S. he will be released back to his neighborhood. If he isn’t put on a government watch list, something is very wrong with our system.
