Ah yes, the liberal media at work again. I heard about the the flight which turned back to LAX the other day because a man allegedly choked a woman for reclining her seat. But the again, no Muslims involved, so they could talk about that. The double standard is troubling but not surprising.


"Something stunning happened last week on a JetBlue from New York bound for South Florida, but most of America hasn’t heard a word about it".
Because it was done by a Muslim, and the media doesn’t want you to know that.
There has been scant coverage of this incident. No big media, no mug shots, nothing. But it’s a big story. Punching out flight attendants and threatening to blow up the plane is terrorism…"

So because he's Muslim, it's an act of Islamic Terrorism?

Lol.

Seems like that Conservative media is trying to make a mountain of a mole hill. What would national media attention bring to this story? Is it going to change his sentencing or anything else?

I don't see a reason to discuss this any more than if a white or black or purple person did it. It's nothing to do with the fact that he's Muslim IMO, that's just Conservatives wanting to point the finger and go ' Oh look, they are all bad!"

I am surprised that people think that this type of news means nothing taking into consideration how many immigrants from middle eastern countries are allowed in the US without permission of any kind from the tax payer.

My husband has friends that works for the secret service, things in the US is not what people think, everyday is something going on, but the government have a way of keeping things away from the public so people live their lives in happy oblivion while calling conspiracies anything t hat is actually leaked to the public and a darn way to tag islamophic anybody that dare to point to the obvious..

Life in America is a picture of fake safe manufactured fantasy.

But what can I say, gun shootings are more important and get the head lines news attention, I can not prove or add more to what has been going on behind American peoples happy lives because is not mean to reach the commoners.

Then people wonder why I am so anti certain issues. One of my husband friends said to us If the public knew what is going on behind their backs they will never be able to sleep again at night

With all due respect. Mr. Moderator, no where in the article does it mention "Islamic Terrorism", just terrorism in general with someone threatening to blow up a plane. And yes, he happened to be Muslim. And yes, the media buried it becuase of that fact. I think they are just pointing out the fact that the story was buried just because he was Muslim, while everyone else seems to be fair game, with more minor stories being reported, but not this one.

"Punching out flight attendants and threatening to blow up the plane is terrorism…"
"Meanwhile similar incidents by Americans on aircraft, whether drunk, belligerent or otherwise. A mom of two who was kicked off an American flight last week for merely complaining about a delay became national news that made all the network morning shows".

So what if he was Muslim. I guarantee that almost every other religion or group out there has had an altercation on a plane. But it's worse because he's a Muslim, right?

Actually the threat of blowing up the plane was an act of terrorism. Funny that a Muslim would make a threat like that and Muslims have had a thing about planes.
Plus the fact we hear so much about other events occurring on planes from people choking other passengers to the incident w/the woman and her kids, why was there such silence about the event. If this was a incident with a fire-arm I would hear how it is all my fault as a gun owner, why can't this guy be held as a example for Muslims??????

And there have been plenty of incidents I've heard of that didn't get a mention on the news, even involving American citizens. The mediaruns with stories that get ratings. A mother of two getting kicked off a flight gets ratings.

see a trend where customers are identifying that they no longer need the service. We need more details in the case notes as to "Why". Is it because their kids moved out and they do not use it or is it something else? This goes along with our getting the agents to tell the story of why the customer wants to cancel in the notes of their case.


From your SOURCE:


Why so quiet, national media, about an apparent act of Islamic terror that may carry a 20-year sentence?


Just below the video.


And yes, the media buried it becuase of that fact. I think they are just pointing out the fact that the story was buried just because he was Muslim, while everyone else seems to be fair game, with more minor stories being reported, but not this one.


He was charged with assault and threatening to blow up an air craft. It's not an act of terrorism, jebus I wish people used a dictionary and looked up the meaning of words sometimes.


And yes, the media buried it becuase of that fact.


Didn't this happen over the weekend, during an already slow news week?

Also, my moderator status has nothing to do with this conversation.

Because he is a Muslim
it is Islamophobia to even mention it

Because he is a Muslim
it is politically incorrect to report it

Because he is a Muslim
he gets a free pass

That is the way it works in our
liberal progressive socialist
society.

Don't like it? Shut up and
go away - you are a racist,
an Islamophobe, you are
a terrible person. So go
hide yourself and repent of
what a terrible and awful
person you are for even mentioning
the word Muslim in a not flattering
context.

That is the PC festering pus
that is further dividing the
country and causing anger
to seethe below the surface.


Now, shut up and be quiet
and repent, but not to God,
repent to the God of PC,
the Democratic Party and
liberal socialists.

OP you must to redeem yourself
to the apologists,
Crawl on
your knees and say you are sorry
or you are a nasty racist, a
wretched human being for even
thinking about such things.


Now close this racist
Islamophobic thread
before people get carried
away.

It is totally against PC protocol
to allow any such discussion
or thought to even take place,
shame on you OP for even daring
to open the thread.
You must be punished!

I used to work at an airport and couldn't even come close to giving you a number on the times I heard someone make a snart ass remark about blowing the plane up or having a bomb because we asked to see in their bag. It doesn't matter if he was Muslim, people of any group make comments like that.

c'mon, tenth....this passenger punched flights attendants, and said he was going to blow up the plane, and he was a Muslim. even regular irate passengers don't do that...besides, our news shows here told us about the irate passenger that got upset at the woman for reclining her seat too much on a southwest plane a few days ago, but, apparently he wasn't a Muslim....so, that's ok to talk about?

Terrorism is defined as using violent means to try to achieve a goal, usually political in nature.


1. the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.
2. the state of fear and submission produced by terrorism or terrorization.
3. a terroristic method of governing or of resisting a government.


So what political objectives was this man looking to achieve so that we can label this event as terrorism?

Yes he was, what that tells you,


Alija Kucuk, 29, of Middle Village in Queens, N.Y., is facing federal charges of interfering with a flight attendant and threatening to destroy an aircraft. He is jailed in Palm Beach County pending a bond hearing Monday in federal court in West Palm Beach.

Kucuk, a Muslim immigrant from Albania, was aboard JetBlue Airways Flight 153 from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Palm Beach International Airport on Thursday night, investigators said.


From the source, no even an American born citizens, I am sure that Obama already had him for lunch to make him feel welcome in the US.

yes I been very sarcastic.

I don't know about that other story, I don't follow the news that closely. I can tell you that this article purposefully bolded things like Muslim Immigrant.

To scare people.

This is fear journalism. Yes it's an issue what he did was a crime and he should be charged with the appropriate federal felony.

BUT

It's not terrorism.

this was already covered and discussed. the man is already facing charges. would this thread exist if it was a different race and it didnt get much coverage? some idiot went mental on a plane, people threaten to blow up planes all the time when they throw hissy fit about sh!tty airlines.

the fact that some want a spin on it because he happens to be muslim is remarkable. ( your source is down right spurious, look at the only four sections they have)

Yes he was, which I acknowledged, but that's irrelevant to what happened. A person went nuts on a plane, religion has nothing to do with it.

Yet the media has no problem pointing out when a white cop kills black suspect but if it was a white suspect the news is police shoots suspect.

I don't think I would consider it an act of terrorism I think that word gets tossed around too much lately but I wish the media would stop trying to sensationalize everything.

I'm going to agree that this has zero to do with this person being Muslim.

Reading through the lines of that biased source, I'd say why it was not reported and what is more relevent is this is about immigration issues.


NY1 also reported that Kukuk has an “immigration issue” of an unspecified nature.


That's the story in my opinion and the likely reason that Left leaning media would not like this story. Being Muslim has not much to do with this and to call it terrorism is a real stretch.

The funny part is no one is saying that but you.

You want to talk about a divide but your post is probably the most divisive post on the thread so far. Ironic.
