Muslim Screams 'Allahu Akbar', Cowardly Airplane Passengers Fail To Act!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Somewhere in the heavens above Amarillo, angry shouts rang out from the back of Southwest Airlines Flight 3683.

`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."


You would think that the proclamation "Allahu Akbar" or "God is Great" would be well received by people, regardless of their religious affiliation. Every person of faith would agree that God is Great, but Americans know that the familiar Islamic chant is often a prelude to death and destruction.

It was superfluous for Shahsavari to add "You`re all going to hell", we very well know that when a Muslim shouts "Allahu Akbar" at infidels, he isn`t going to shower us with hugs and kisses.

It`s astonishing that none of the cowardly passengers rushed the man when he shouted "Allahu Akbar." We`ve all seen this movie before a hundred times; if I`m on an airplane and a man shouts "Allahu Akbar" I will immediately try to take him out. It appears Shahsavari is a nutjob and not a terrorist, but the passengers shouldn`t have waited for a a psychiatric report.

In a sane world Shahsavari would have been a bloody mess by the time the plane landed and he was arrested by law enforcement officials. We are a nation of sheep!
