1 passenger detained after disturbance on Continental flight headed to Houston (Muslimaniac)
khou.com ^ | Feb. 22, 2012 | Nakia Cooper

HOUSTON— Passengers aboard a Continental Airlines flight bound for Houston Tuesday sprang into action to help a flight attendant having trouble with an unruly passenger.

Twenty minutes after the plane departed Portland, pilots returned to the city where the FBI was waiting.

Passengers said the unruly man was a problem from the beginning. After boarding Flight 1113, the man became upset because he was not seated next to his friend. Then after the flight took off, he ignored the “No Smoking” sign and tried to light an electronic cigarette.

A flight attendant asked the passenger to turn off the cigarette, but he refused. The Middle Eastern man started screaming at the smaller woman.

“He was screaming, ‘Allah is great, Allah is great,’” said Nancy Haywood, passenger. “And it kind of worries you when that happens, but believe me, there were enough men to hold him down.”

And they did. Men on the plane jumped up and ran to assist the flight attendant.

“Every guy that was in my area was ready to go,” said Mark Foster, passenger. “It was not even a thought. You can tell buckles were off and people were already leaning toward the aisles.”

"“He was screaming, ‘Allah is great, Allah is great,’”

I'm thinking of the man injured when his electric cigarette exploded in his mouth and wondering if all this Muslim wanted was a smoke. Maybe he was a committed cigarette bomber and planned tom use the contraption to set off something else.

The actions of the other passengers is very encouraging. You could eliminate most security today as any red blooded, straight male would immediately jump to the defense of the flight crew and the rest of the passengers.

Most of us will no longer sit by.

Obama’s sympathetic crew will race to dismiss any concerns regarding ISLAMIC TERROR!

President Calvin Coolidge had it right and was prophetic when he spoke these words to Congress in December 1923:

American institutions rest solely on good citizenship. They were created by people who had a background of self-government. New arrivals should be limited to our capacity to absorb them into the ranks of good citizenship. America must be kept American."

"For this purpose it is necessary to continue a policy of restricted immigration. It would be well to make such immigration of a selective nature with some inspection at the source, and based either on a prior census or upon the record of naturalization. Either method would insure the admission of those with the largest capacity and best intention of becoming citizens. Those who do not want to be partakers of the American spirit ought not to settle in America.”

It is their equivalent of the "race card."

When they are attempting to be superior to "infidels" and are called on it they know they have nothing to justify their actions.

Invariably the jerk out the allah card.

It was not about the smoke. It was about "screw you infidel."

So, it would appear that under this administration everybody is a serious security threat except radical Islamists. It’s wierd to feel like there is a large segment of the country who live in a completely different reality than I do.

Perhaps Eric Holder will conduct an investigation to determine whether or not the male passengers were a bit racist in their preemptive strike actions. You know, if the male passengers were all white and the perp was a Muzzie Minority, it certainly would appear on the surface that race was an issue - right? After all, that is the thinking in this pathetic administration by both BHO and Erie Holder at the [in]Justice Department

My two weapons of choice on an airliner are: The soles on my shoes and my belt. Both can be used very effectively - the shoes soles for punishing blows to the temple area and the belt for application around the neck and then pulling the belt strap back as far as it will go. Choke!!!! coupled with blows to the temple can do some serious damage.

Since Flight 93, I don’t think any passengers are sitting still for this kind of stuff. It was a European passenger who jumped on the underwear bomber and put out the fire. Now it was a group of Americans. Better to go down fighting and protecting women!

“My two weapons of choice on an airliner are: The soles on my shoes and my belt.”

That’s a great idea!!! A line of clothing accessories that and easily (and stealthily) be converted into personal weapons.

A belt with a serrated edge! A boot with a hand strap and a hardened heel!

That is why I posted this on Freeper - I know that many of our members travel via airliner on a daily basis. I wanted to share that information with each Freeper who flies or may be flying in the future. We all must work together at those times when threatened by rag heads or anyone else on a flight. We must be prepared to take whatever action is necessary to assure that the aircraft WILL NOT be a weapon used for our demise.

Uh, you don’t light electronic cigarettes and they do not emit smoke. If the flight serves coffee, then an electronic cigarette is of no threat. Both emit water vapor or to put it more plainly, they emit steam!

Stupid reporters....

The story I read said he tried to light an electronic cigarette. you do NOT light e-cigs. You just puff on them and a water vapor emerges. The tip lights up via battery.

But that said, I understand planes do not allow them to be used onboard. Why, I haven’t a clue, unless they think the cigs could be rigged.

“I understand planes do not allow them to be used onboard. Why, I haven’t a clue, unless they think the cigs could be rigged.”

I’ll offer a clue. It is simply that cigarettes have been demonized for years, so anything that “appears” to look like a cigarette is verbotten, comrad. Just the sheeple baa’ing. Try walking through a store, or sitting in a cube, with an unlit cigarette in plain site. The sheeple go crazy with fear of immediate death!

Sometimes the mood strikes me and I will do it just to rile some feathers....

Not bad choices but the knee and elbow to the temple or head will stun a person or worse, instantly.
