'Maybe he was looking for the bathroom': Family defends Yemeni passenger who stormed cockpit
dailymail.co.uk ^ | May 10, 2011 | Daniel Bates

Posted on 05/10/2011 1:28:33 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

The Yemeni man who was wrestled to the floor after pounding on the cockpit door of a plane approaching San Francisco may have mistaken it for the bathroom.

Rageit Almurisi cannot speak English very well and could have misunderstood the signs inside the jet, his cousin claimed.

The maths teacher, who was heard yelling 'Allahu Akbar' as he allegedly battered the door, had also only been on three planes in his life and would have been unfamiliar with the layout.

His family also claimed that Almurisi, 28, suffers from rheumatoid arthritis and could also have reacted badly when an air stewardess told him to sit down.

His painful joint condition meant he had to take regular walks on flights, they claimed. ‘I would not be having that,’ his cousin Rageh Almoraissi said.

‘If a flight attendant has the nerve to grab me and try to force me to my seat, believe me, you would hear about other people having injuries.’

Almurisi sparked panic when he started yelling and banging on the cockpit door on American Airlines Flight 1561 from Chicago, just ten minutes before it was due to land on Sunday night, according to police.

But the suspect's cousin, Rageh, 29, said he was a university educated, easygoing person who had arrived in Northern California a year-and-a-half ago from Yemen in search of a better life.

He told the Bay Citizen newspaper he probably overreacted when he was told to sit down.

‘There's a lot of things I'm guessing, you know, I'm just trying to figure it out,’ said Rageh. ‘I know he wasn't trying to harm anyone. I know that for sure. He's not a terrorist. He's a nice guy.’

I guess the first question ought to be, does he always scream ‘Allahu Akbar’ when he needs to go the bathroom?

If this guy has all these reasons why he can’t act correctly on the plane, they do allow pets to ride along in kennels, with the luggage. He should ride with them.

Why do we let people from Yemen get on planes? Seriously, why do we let them into our country at all? Did we let German and Japanese freely travel during WWll?

So, when you board the aircraft. What is one of the first areas you see? That’s right, the cockpit.

And who sits in the cockpit? Go ahead, you can say it...that’s right! The pilot and co-pilot!

Now. What do the pilot and co-pilot do? C’mon, you know. Very good! They fly the plane! You are very smart.

Ok, when you walk down the long tube to your seat, do you know where the cockpit is? That’s right! Right up in the front of the tube!

Gimme a friggin break.

He must have ignored that presentation the airline staff give at the very beginning of the flight when they point to the restrooms and the exits.

The cousin says so, so it must be true! Sheesh. If he just had to go to the bathroom, why was he yelling allah akbar (and beating down the door)? I mean, seriously.... this is so dumb...

Inconveniencing everyone else on the flight by blocking the aisles.

Nope that demand alone, means next time you drive.

BTDT. Plane layouts are so complicated these days. They should at least put arrows on the floor directing passengers to the restooms. I mean, you make one wrong turn down the wrong aisle and you're lost for hours. Besides, who knew "Allahu Akbar" wasn't "Please, would you direct me to the can?"

Don't blame him - it's society's fault. Moslems think like libtards.

Well Rageh, if an arab looking guy assaults a flight attendant during a flight that I'm on -- believe me you will hear about some injuries on that guy too.

As for me, I hop up and down saying, “Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord!” But it is subvocalized, and I don’t pound on the cockpit door when I say it.

He won't be having that problem anymore. It will be right next to his bunk.

Maybe he really had to go, was waiting a long time, and that Allah Ahkbar really means: “Hey buddy, are you taking a leak in there, or draining all the blood out of your body?”

Heard that one waiting on line in the Shea Stadium men’s room. Classic!
