Just as the prophet ordered

Mansor Mohammad Asad of Toledo, Ohio was arrested Wednesday night on Delta Airlines flight 2485 from Miami to Detroit, according to reports by the Miami Herald, AP, and Reuters. Mansor Mohammad Asad was taken off the Delta Flight 2485 while taxiing on the Miami runway.
Reuters reports that Asad “began making loud anti-Semitic comments and chanting, apparently in Arabic,” and stated that witnesses told Reuters that Asad said “I’m Palestinian and I want (to) kill all Jews.” AP also reports that Asad stated “I want to kill all the Jews” before police forced him off a Detroit-bound plane.
According to the Miami Herald, Asad “berated officers and made racist comments” to them, including telling one to “Go back to Africa you white racist cop!”
AP reports that “witnesses told investigators who boarded the plane that Asad was loud, disruptive and claimed to be Palestinian.” Miami Herald reports that Asad charged and threatened police officers; it reports that Asad was “charged with threats against a public servant, disorderly conduct and resisting an officer without violence to his person.” AP also reports that “The affidavit noted that alcohol didn’t appear to be a factor during the incident.”
Miami Herald reports that “Homeland Security’s Sari Koshetz wrote in a news release late Wednesday night. She said four passengers were taken off a plane from Miami to Detroit after making ‘inappropriate remarks and acting disruptively.’ Police did not release any information about the other passengers.”
AP reports that “FBI spokeswoman Judy Orihuela said there were no indications the disturbance was related to terrorism. The bureau was initially brought in to look into the incident but is no longer involved in the investigation. She said the FBI is treating the disruption as a matter for local authorities.”
