SNIPPET: "The FBI says that an actor threatened to kill flight passengers on a flight from Chicago Tuesday night. The plan was headed to Orange County and Arash "Ash" Durrani, 26, is going to appear in federal court Friday.

Sources say that Ash Durrani was being unruly by pacing the aisles, demanding alcohol, harassing female passengers and threatening to kill people. According to the affidavit, the deranged model and actor yelled, "I'm from Afghanistan and I will murder all of you." This San Antonio Celebrity Examiner is just in shock. Did he say Afghanistan? Durrani was born in Alexandria, Virginia."

Muslim clan identity announcement. What a douche bag; they should have tossed him at 32,000 feet and had a party. More to come from the muslim trash that now is invading the West, peacefully. Wake up, America.

“Passengers Restrain Man Accused of Grabbing Women on Flight”

By Robert Kovacik and Jonathan Lloyd | Thursday, Sep 27, 2012 | Updated 11:25 PM PDT

SNIPPET: “When the man started pacing and scaring children on the plane, passenger David Truong said he and other passengers took action and physically restrained the man with belts.

“He looked at every one of us and said, ‘I’m going to kill you and your entire family,’” Truong said.

The man was restrained for nearly three hours.”

Thanks for the video link.

Say bye bye to your acting career there Mr. Durrani. (Hard to be an actor when you get yourself put on a no-fly list)

Yep, passengers with common sense are the key to airline safety, in my opinion.

We lost this war when mosques opened on September 12th, 2001.

Men of the West had lost the will to fight.

Must have been listening to Samuel L. Jackson ads. Also , it depends upon his race and party affiliation as to whether he will be tried and convicted of anything.

"tackled by fellow passengers"

With the possibility he was a terrorist, on drugs, or a maniac missed by TSA stooges, fellow passengers should have been more assertive than that.

The actor's surname, "Durrani" is of Afghanistan/Arab/Muslim extraction. The Durrani Empire in that country began in 1747, then faded away, replaced by another empire. The convoluted blood-soaked history of Afghanistan is too convoluted and eye-glazing to go into here....or anywhere.

Bush set us back 25-50 years in properly recognizing the threat with his “peaceful, friendly religion” nonsense.

“Bush set us back 25-50 years in properly recognizing the threat with his “peaceful, friendly religion” nonsense.”

He didn’t help matters, but this pre-dates him and Obama. The first attack was in 1993, but BJ Clinton was more interested in hunting down survivalists in Idaho.

Passenger Nona Pitts told NBC4 that the man, identified by the FBI as 26-year-old actor-model Arash Durrani, sat across from her on United Airlines flight 473. Pitts asked whether he was "on anything" because of his strange behavior.

"He was kind of slurring his words," Pitts said. "He just goes, 'Why, you want some?'

This guy is funny.

Thanks; it was a strange tme back then. There is no defense for Timothy McVeigh’s attack (I would be more understanding if he did it at midnight with an empty building), but that whole movement (small but potent) really shined a spotlight on the bizarre priorities of the federal government. The NRA probably never enlisted so many new members (unless it was in the last year or two).
