    Sorry but I don’t believe this guy. I’ve been on planes where there were Arabs before, I’m a constant flier. Was even on a plane sitting beside someone who was receipting the Quran well we were landing because they were scared. No one gives a rats ass, they didn’t care then and they don’t care now. I think he probably did something to get kicked out. You don’t just get kicked out just because you’re speaking Arabic. Sorry but I don’t buy it, this guy is annoying on youtube. I hate fake pranksters. Get lost.

    This guy is a complete liar; I’ve flown internationally many times with people speaking multiple languages and no one was treated rude nor bad in any way. Azzholes like this make it hard to for real issues to be taken serious because it diminishes the impact of the movement.
