The man’s relgious and political affiliations aren’t mentioned, so for now we’ll have to assume he’s an Amish Teabagger:

Crew members and passengers wrestled a 28-year-old man to the cabin floor after he began pounding on the cockpit of a plane approaching San Francisco.

The man was yelling as he brushed past a flight attendant about 10 minutes before American Airlines Flight 1561 from Chicago was due to land on Sunday night, police said.
Rageit Almurisi, 28, carried a Yemen passport but his nationality is not clear, a spokesman said.
[...]
The man has no clear or known ties to terrorism and authorities have still not yet established a motive, San Francisco police Sergeant Michael Rodriguez told the San Francisco Chronicle.
Passengers told of how Almurisi was heard to shout ‘Allahu Akbar’ – or ‘God is great’.

The guy’s not very bright either, because if he got into the cockpit he was going to insist that the pilot divert the plane to a place that is radical-friendly, and it was already heading to San Francisco.

Update: Here’s the lame excuse du jour: The guy’s family said that maybe he was just looking for the bathroom. FreeThinkerNY at Weasel Zippers asks, “Since when does “Allahu Akbar” mean “I have to take a dump?”

    "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." ( Equally deranged cousin )

    Charming.

    "The man has no clear or known ties to terrorism and authorities have still not yet established a motive, San Francisco police Sergeant Michael Rodriguez told the San Francisco Chronicle."

    Incredible. As a longtime service member my most recent Security Clearance only took TWO YEARS to complete! AYFKM!? Yet some local cop ( in a Sanctuary City no less that like Portland only offers token support to JTTF ) is able to determine ALL of this in less time than it takes a part-time worker to fill out a 1040 EZ Form? This sh!t I GOT to see.

    No chance they wouldn't have all this bullcr@p pre-coordinated w/ Holder now 'would' they? Sheesh, this is so insulting.

    "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."

    This is becoming a pattern. A Freebie. Like a number of our homegrown jihadists here in Portland. Of -course- he didn't mean it! Sudden Jihadists can play a split hand. If they get access to the cockpit, down she goes. If not, it's a field day to keep The Left off the matters at hand. Fry this sucker will ya'?

    The Yemeni man, a math teacher (?), "couldn`t understand English very well ?", but still had a CA. ID ? Was it a company or school ID from CA., or an ID from "the state of CA." ?

    It`s far beyond time we seriously limit immigration to people who have skills or professions that are needed and in short supply and beneficial to the US, much like Australia has done. Include certain persecuted groups and individuals, of course, but cut out a lot of people who have little or nothing to offer and come from suspect areas !

    Don't Amish Teabaggers have to have a Orange Triangle on their back ? :D

    "The guy’s family said that maybe he was just looking for the bathroom."

    Plausable. Instead of Allah Akbar maybe he was yelling "Allah d**n" 'cause he had to pee real bad and thought the head was locked. It could happen…

    Yelling "Allah Akbar!" in a crowded airplane is the new yelling "Fire!" in a crowded theater.

  8. zillaoftheresistance on May 11th, 2011 8:49 am

    Well SOMEONE in that story is certainly full of sh!t.

    The question that arose in my mind over the course of the evening was ( WTF was this guy doing having COMMUNICATIONS with his family!??? ) With ANYBODY! Is he already out on $5,000 Bail? Whatever happened to Isolation? Jeez, I'd expect harsher treatment for a Drunk In Public charge.

    It's possible the cousin and he had pre-rehearsed their little 'explanation' had this all gone awry. Also possible this was an ex-post-facto, fabricated lie. Either way, it's a LIE! MM noted on her flight that the Lavatory 'door' and the 'cockpit' door ( looked NOTHING alike!? ) Throw the book at this guy already!
