    For once, the right people were removed from the plane. Kudos to the passengers who stood up against bigotry.

    Pair reportedly tried to have three men removed from plane

    The Independent
    Two women were thrown off a Thomas Cook flight from Turkey to Gatwick after they allegedly said three Muslim men in white prayer shawls were “terrorists” and a “threat” to the safety of the plane, other passengers have claimed.

    Videos of the incident, which took place after 1am on Friday, show one of the women, who are believed to be British, removing her bag from the overhead luggage rack before being escorted off the plane by police.

    The incident meant the flight from Dalman to Gatwick was delayed by over an hour.

    Mario Van Poppel, a Belgian father-of-three who was on the flight, said the woman was a “crazy racist”.

    “A passenger on our Thomas Cook flight refuses to stay on the plane because three bearded men in white prayer robes are on board,” he tweeted.

    Shanea Kerry, who was also on the plane, said the women had tried to have the men taken off the flight.

    She said: “They went to the front of the plane, spoke to the flight attendants & attempted to get the 3 men removed by stating that they are ‘disgusting’ & ‘a threat’.”

    Singling out people because of their race, religion, or ethnicity, is about the least American thing I can imagine.

    Muslims are one of the "protected class" now. Part of the way how we deal with denying 9/11 ever happened. In all likelihood, they were indeed innocent, harmless folk but let's face facts: had these three people been white, christian, Trump supporters wearing MAGA hats, etc., and those complaining of being offended, scared or concerned Muslims, Blacks, liberals, etc., in all likelihood, the innocent white people would have been removed for causing a disturbance. It has already happened many times in the news.

    In today's world, just being white and normal already has you half way to being guilty of something.

    Just once, I would like to have seen the airline go to those three men and tell them they were offending passengers and ask them to remove their turbans or whatever and JUST SEE WHAT HAPPENS. You KNOW what would have happened.

    So if a group of Aryan skinheads wearing Nazi gear and pro-Hilter stuff get on your plane and you are a Jew, you are good as gold with it?

    They wouldn't be sitting in my class.

    But, just to be fair, being a Nazi isn't a race, a religion, or an ethnicity.

    Fool yourself all you like. Real terrorists are paying attention to see how deceived the authorities are so next time they'll get more Americans killed the next time they decide they need more world attention for grievances against Israel, which they failed to wipe out during the Holocaust and in fact, lost out because Israel refused to have more mass murders taken out on their people after Hitler and the Mufti of Jerusalem succeeded in wiping out six million Jews in four years of discriminating against them starting with Krystallnacht and ending with Hitler allegedly committing suicide in his own office along with his cousin/wife when it was clear to him Berlin was lost and he had no place left to hide. By some fluke, the Mufti of Jerusalem was free to leave Germany and go back home to kill as many Jews as he possibly could when World War II didn't work out for their worldwide extinction. Guess who owns Jerusalem now. Hint: it is not the Mufti and his band of genocidal maniacs against the Jewish nation of survivors.

    How would you guarantee that? You ride in baggage?

    Neither is just wearing white prayer shawls. I could wear a white prayer shawl. Neither is wearing a red MAGA hat. Yet people get thrown off planes, out of restaurants, etc., just for wearing them. You avoided my question.
