Man Kicked Off Plane For Speaking Arabic

Man Kicked Off Plane For Speaking Arabic


A UC BERKELEY
STUDENT WAS KICKED OFF A SOUTHWEST FLIGHT AFTER A
PASSENGER OVERHEARD HIM SPEAKING IN ARABIC AND WAS CONCERNED.
NOW THE STUDENT THAT GOT KICKED OFF IS KHAIRULDEEN MAKHZOOMI.
THERE HE IS. AT THAT POINT HE WAS A LITTLE
WORRIED BECAUSE HE NOTICED THAT SHE WAS PAYING EXTRA ATTENTION
TO HIM, HE WAS SPEAKING IN ARABIC, AND HE WONDERED IF
SHE WAS GOING TO REPORT HIM. WELL, SHE DID REPORT HIM. HE
SAYS HE NEVER USED THAT PHRASE, BUT AUTHORITIES ARRIVED AND HE
WAS SEARCHED. THIS IS A SUPER COMMON PHRASE
NOT JUST IN ARABIC BUT IT HAS GONE FROM ARABIC TO OTHER
LANGUAGES AS WELL, IT’S IN TURKISH, IT MEANS I HOPE SO.
WOW. IN TURKISH, IT’S A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT LANGUAGE
FROM ARABIC, BUT LIKE MANY LANGUAGES, BORROWS FROM OTHER
LANGUAGES. WE WERE TALKING TO YOUR MOM OVER THE WEEKEND ANA
AND SHE SAID SHE KNOWS WHAT THAT MEANS BECAUSE SHE IS ARMENIAN.
IF SHE WERE TO SAY, I DON’T KNOW, SPEAKING A FOREIGN
LANGUAGE. DANGEROUS. ALL FOREIGNERS ARE DANGEROUS. WE
MUST MONITOR ONE ANOTHER OKAY. MAKE SURE THAT YOU HELP KEEP AN
EYE ON THE DANGEROUS FOREIGNERS AND REPORT THEM TO THE
AUTHORITIES. THERE WERE HALF A DOZEN FBI OFFICIALS. THEY HAD A
DOG AND IN REALITY ONE OF THE THINGS THAT SET THEM OFF WAS NOT
JUST THIS NOSY PERSON AND BY THE WAY, LOOK, IF YOU SAW
SOMETHING ACTUALLY SUSPICIOUS, I GET IT. YOU ARE ON THE PLANE.
MAYBE YOUR FAMILY IS ON THE PLANE. I UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE
ALL HUMANS. SOMETIMES I SEE A DUDE AND I GO ñ I DON’T TURN
THEM IN BECAUSE FOR WHATEVER REASON THEY TRIGGERED SOMETHING
IN MY SUBCONSCIOUS. I HOPE THAT I DO NOT ACT ON THAT BIAS, BUT I
AM SAYING TO YOU I GET IT. YOU SEE SOMEBODY AND YOU ARE A
LITTLE CONCERNED OR WHATEVER. BUT IT IS A DIFFERENT THING THEN
BEING LIKE, HE SAID A WORD I DON’T UNDERSTAND. REMOVE HIM
FROM THE PREMISES. SHE DOES THAT. SHE PANICS. I WOULD HOPE
THAT THE AIRLINE AND SECURITY DOES THEIR DUE DILIGENCE. YOU
BRING THE DOG, WHATEVER, THE GENITALS THING IS HORRIBLE.
AFTER YOU CHECK IN ON HIM AND YOU FIND OUT HE WAS JUST AT AN
EVENT WITH THE SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE UN AND THAT
HIS FATHER WAS ASSASSINATED BY SADDAM HUSSEIN. HE’S A REFUGEE FROM SADDAM
HUSSEIN. REMEMBER THE GUY WE TOPPLED? AND THEN YOU GO BACK AND SAY, SO SORRY.
LET’S PUT YOU BACK ON THE PLANE. NO. INSTEAD, THE GUY SAID, ìWHAT
IS THIS, IS IT ISLAMAPHOBIA?î THE KID GETS KICKED OFF. HE’S
26. THEY WERE VERY UPSET ABOUT THAT. YOU CANNOT HURT AN
AIRLINE EMPLOYEES FEELINGS. THAT IS THE EQUIVALENT OF
TERRORISM AND HE MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE PLANE. THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE THAT
WILL MAKE THE ARGUMENT THAT CLOSELY MONITORING MUSLIMS IS
OKAY BECAUSE THEY ARE MORE PRONE TO TERRORIST ATTACKS. I DO NOT AGREE WITH THAT. BUT IF YOU ARE SPREADING THAT
TYPE OF MENTALITY AND THAT TYPE OF ISLAMAPHOBIA,
UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS NOT JUST GOING TO STOP AT MUSLIMS. I DON’T THINK IT SHOULD HAPPEN
TO MUSLIMS, BUT WHEN I SPEAK ARMENIAN, I AM SURE IT SOUNDS
KIND OF AGGRESSIVE AND CRAZY. TO THEM, CERTAINLY. OF COURSE. MAYBE IT SOUNDS
REALLY DANGEROUS. GET HER OUT OF HERE. THIS IS SO STUPID THAT WE
ARE LIVING IN THIS WEIRD, PARANOID STATE AND WE ARE TAKING
OUR ANGER AND OUR FEARS ON INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO ARE
DOING NOTHING WRONG. NOT ONLY DID HE GET KICKED OFF
THAT FLIGHT, HE DIDN’T GET ON ANOTHER FLIGHT AND GET TO WHERE
HE NEEDED TO BE UNTIL NINE HOURS LATER. HE WAS NINE HOURS LATE WHERE HE
NEEDED TO BE. HE HAD ATTENDED A DINNER AT THE
LOS ANGELES WORLD AFFAIRS WITH THE SECRETARY-GENERAL OF THE
UNITED NATIONS. IT DOESN’T MATTER. HIS STORY CHECKED OUT. THEY
MADE EVERYBODY WAIT. THEY MADE THE PLANE WAIT. THE STORY WILL
CHECK OUT. I THINK THE EMPLOYEE HERE’S FAR MORE AT FAULT THAN
THE PASSENGER. BECAUSE THE EMPLOYEE COMES AND APPARENTLY
SPEAKS ARABIC, SO HE TELLS THEM WHAT HE SAID AND AT THAT POINT THE
EMPLOYEE SHOULD OF BEEN LIKE OH, OKAY. IF YOU TALK TO HIM AND
YOU GET A SENSE OF – HE WAS TALKING TO HIS MOM. HIS FATHER
HAS BEEN MURDERED. YOU SAY OKAY. NO, THE EMPLOYEE WAS LIKE
DID YOU JUST SAY ISLAMAPHOBIA? YOU HURT MY FEELINGS.
THAT’S IT. YOUíRE OFF THE PLANE. DON’T CARE. YOU DARED TO OFFEND
ME? NO. YOU’RE DONE. SO THAT IS
THE COUNTRY WE LIVE IN. THIS STORY INCLUDES SO MANY
DIFFERENT ISSUES THAT WE HAVE IN SOCIETY RIGHT NOW. NOT JUST ISLAMAPHOBIA, ALSO IF
YOU ARE A PASSENGER ON AN AIRPLANE, YOU ARE
ALWAYS IN THE WRONG. IF YOU HAVE ANY COMPLAINT, YOU
ARE WRONG. I DON’T KNOW WHY IT IS THAT
THERE IS THIS ONE TYPE OF BUSINESS IN THE US WHERE THE
CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS WRONG BUT THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS WITH
FLIGHTS.

    that wasn't Armenian, that was gibberish

  • ERAUPRCWA says:

    Yet Dave Rubin will continually say that Islamophobia doesn't exist.

  • MrG0TH1ER says:

    For some strange reason I think we should get some Arabs to read translated transcripts from Trump's and Cruz's speeches in Arabic and make conservatives watch them.

  • Kyle Bullard says:

    Like Cenk said we all see people every day who may make us look twice to analyze a threat assessment but for real this person who turned this guy in was at an airport. You'd think people wouldn't be surprised to hear people speaking in other languages airports are kinda like a hub for foreign languages. I bet this chick is white and I'd bet again she's a "conservative" and I'd bet again her favourite entertainment news channel is fox but who cares…

  • hultonclint says:

    Why are they just reading off a badly reported Yahoo! story and adding random pointless comments to it?
    They don’t even pronounce “insha’allah” right.

  • SpookeyClown says:

    What were they looking for in his genitals?

  • LupusRex 69420 says:

    Just let them blow up the plane, if you relax security terrorist will use it to thier advantage. Just like leaving iraq without setting up any perminent bases, so all my brothers and sisters in arms died for nothing. Don't listen to these jackasses.

  • Kenne5antione says:

    Agree to disagree but Ill go ahead and say it, was it fair for this guy to get kicked out No, but is her concern, and fear valid YES. Its not Americas job to isolate who is a radical and who is not…We take great means to disown and rebuke homophobes and racists…but the muslim community doesnt do the same…Muslims spend more time telling us we should be accepting and tolerant of their culture and beliefs, rather than chastising and renouncing the radical muslims…Untill I see the Muslim community coming out, giving names, giving locations and identities of people within in their own sect that may cause harm to them and our communities…I remain neutral to the backlash they face

  • K.C. Kelley says:

    You can thank the Patriot Act for giving the airlines the right to kick you off the flight without a refund.

  • Barrandill T'Anathlas says:

    Another form of McCarthyism rears its head in the USA, land of the free (if your very rich), and the home of the brave (if you use social media).

  • Ohmy gosh says:

    Why doesn't that ever happen to me? I'm gonna speak just Arabic on flights from now on and see what happens

  • hultonclint says:

    It’s obvious that the Berkeley student started being passive-aggressive (like the Texas Clock boy). And at that point, the Arabic-speaking flight attendant lost whatever sympathy he/she may have had. Talking with security at an airport is not the time to be passive-aggressive.

  • Nookie Cookies says:

    ana im gonna have to check you crotch since you spoke a language o dont understand

  • Sheri-myvideos says:

    geese….that lady is paranoid!!!  Did she realize later that she acted stupid and that he was innocent. When I fly I don't look at who everyone looks like and what nationality they are or what they are saying. I just view us all as passengers who's life counts on the pilots to get us there safely. I always hope the plane wont have mechanical problems. I don't think of bombs and stuff.  I am glad I am not paranoid like that lady was. Who does she think she is. lol

  • God Dam Problem says:

    the only terror was the lady acting all crazy……..

  • Bo Kvarv says:

    The really FUNNY aspect of this is that so far NO TERRORIST act, NO HIJACKING, NO CRIME have so far been prevented by these security measures.Then we have the perception of safety vs safety. I would rather be @[email protected] and safe, then @[email protected] and unsafe

  • NYG_NYM_UNC says:

  • Victor O'Rourke says:

    seriously though. …the kid goes to Berkeley. He's smart. He needs to be a little more cicumspect when he enters the airport.

  • TheVastLive HD says:

    I dare someone to go on a plane and say allahu snackbar not too loud just like on your phone, see people reaction

  • Ty Johnson says:

    When Ana started speaking Armenian I had to Google that shit to make sure this bitch wasn't a lowkey terrorist.

  • Nedaa Jaber says:

    I speak Arabic so when I go to my country and speak Arabic to my mom I'm going to be kicked out or the plane

  • JB6789 says:

    My kids, 9 and 11, are both are fluent in three languages. Should I be concerned if they switch to French on a US plane?

  • Regressive Lefty Girl says:

    This is so funny and sad at the same time

  • Emily Lynch says:

    WHAT THE HEY SOUTHWEST !!!!!!!!!!!

  • soap bar says:

    to be honest I'm guilty of feeling like this once in London when Muslim workers got on a bus with a bunch of tool kits. it was incredibly insensitive of me but I thought there could at least be a chance that something could go down and wanted to leave the bus as soon as possible. thankfully a more right minded friend talked me out of leaving and made me realize how culturally insensitive I was being.

    I still feel some guilt of how I thought at the time. And hate that some people go too far to discriminate, even when their safety is concerned. This is the reason humanity can never unite, because of fear.

  • Rogério Penna says:

    btw, the discussion talks about the women being afraid about a foreign language she doesn´t understand. However the passenger clearly said she heard the arabic word SHAHID, meaning "martyr". Well, apparently she was not THAT ignorant of arabic. I never knew that.

    Anyway, this reminds me of the movie The Dictator.

    General Aladeen: [Speaking in Wadiyan] Hey, do you remember my favorite sports car?
    Nadal: [Speaking in Wadiyan] You mean your Porsche?
    General Aladeen: [Speaking in Wadiyan] Yes… the 911.
    Nadal: 911, it's the best!
    General Aladeen: [Speaking in Wadiyan] So I was driving the 911 near the Palace one day…
    [making hand gestures of driving the car]
    General Aladeen: and I totally crashed!
    [Aladeen and Nadal laugh as the tourists get more nervous]
    General Aladeen: [Speaking in Wadiyan] It's okay, I've already ordered a new one. A brand new 911 2012.
    [Tourists get even more nervous]

  • Bo Kvarv says:

    Ignorance does NOT warrant this situation.This is ILLEGAL, I wish this crew would have been fired, and when suing for it they sue the woman reporting the arab.Then let her HER pay the consequenzes of HER ignorance.The fact that the woman felt scared matter NOT. Feeling threated and BEING in danger is 100% different

  • kp martin says:

    This is not the first time people are thrown off from planes due to ridiculous suspicions. Shame on america! u freaking xenophobia shits!

  • LazDamar says:

    Insallah is used the same way that English speakers use the word "hopefully".

  • Yousef Albasir says:

    I wonder what would've happen if the roles were reversed. The Arab man misheard the women and reported it. Would there be a double standard?

  • Matthew McBroom says:

    If she legitimately thought he said "martyr", then I don't blame the woman. That's like saying bomb in an airport/airplane. It scares people. However, I do believe the airline grotesquely overreacted.

  • Harry Herman says:

    no we have to be vigilant

  • Chris Cruise says:

  • Ali and Mohammed Basheer says:

    I always travel with my wife and kids, I'm the only who can speak English , what we have to do then, my wife can stop talking perhaps during the trip, but what about the kids? They know only Arabic. What you are suggesting… should we have to sew children mouths during the trip? or buying our own aircraft? . Which stupid said that terrorism have only one language, You don t know that about 40% of the terrorists in Iraq and Syria are not Arabs !!! yes some of them American, British and French those are the terrorists are killing women and children in Iraq and Syria.

    The Politically Correctness in the news media and politics is fostering this B.S. By Design.
    When pathetic idiots like Adam Saleh are allowed

  • Ultimate Deletus says:

    Arabian got kicked off for speaking his own language
    …the hell is wrong with the world?

  • Bo Kvarv says:

    In this case Southwest made the most retarded defence statement ever. They said they acted accordingly to what was seen as threatening words by the man, HOWEVER they never indicated they knew Arabic and could then state what threatening words was said, then they said they are against all forms of discrimination……..my ass.

    The issue I see is this: If you do not know a language, then regardless of you feeling threatened by the unknown, you have ZERO right to act on this IRRATIONAL fear, and when you do you are INSANE. Period!
