So next time I'm stuck for 6 hours on a plane not going anywhere all I have to do is say "Steward, I would like to kill al the Jews" and they'll take me back inside and put me in a comfortable chair?
Passengers on the plane told police Asad was ``loud and disruptive, using anti-Semitic references such as, `I'm Palestinian and I want kill all the Jews,' ''
Asad was speaking in a foreign language, thought to be Arabic.
He then prayed and chanted, before telling a cop to ``Go back to Africa, you white racist cop!''

This is an act of jihad with the purpose of instilling fear in non-muslims. The goal is to spread Islam. Muslims have been doing this for 1,400 years.
Asad's son, 27-year-old Mickey Asad, told The Associated Press that his father suffered from bipolar disorder and was in and out of mental institutions when he was younger.
"He's far from a terrorist," said the younger Asad. "He just lost his temper. There's no excuse, but someone had to have pushed his button"
An airline passenger in Miami, identified as Mansor Mohammad Asad, 43, proclaimed on Delta Flight 2485 "I want to kill all the Jews" before police forced him off a Detroit-bound plane, authorities said Wednesday 01/06/2010 night.
Mansor Mohammad Asad of Toledo, Ohio, was arrested Wednesday night, according to a Miami-Dade Police Department statement (see also -US Toledo Cell ). Mansor Asad was charged with threats against a public servant, disorderly conduct and resisting an officer without violence.
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.
On 02/21/2006 a grand jury in Toledo, Ohio, decided to indict three USA residents: Mohammad Zaki Amawi , born in 1980, a dual citizen of Jordan and the United States; Marwan el-Hindi, born in 1964, a naturalized citizen born in Jordan; and Wassim I. Mazloum, born in 1982, a legal permanent resident, with conspiring to kill American forces in Iraq as part of an Islamic Holy War against the United States.
Mohammad Zaki Amawi, the ringleader, was also charged with making threats to kill President Bush.
According to the indictment charges the suspects solicited help from an individual identified as "the trainer", who is described as a citizen with experience in the United States military. Much of the case against the men appears to come from the testimony of that individual. "The trainer", his real name is Darren Griffin, according to intelligence sources was a former special forces soldier recruited to serve undercover for the FBI and used the Islamic name Bilal.
Witnesses told investigators who boarded the plane that Mansor Asad was loud, disruptive and claimed to be Palestinian. Officers didn't find any weapons or explosives on Mansor Asad, who was reportedly agitated and aggressive at times, according to an arrest affidavit. Authorities used a stun gun to subdue Asad on the jet bridge after he charged at an officer with fists clenched. He also chanted in a foreign language and threatened officers during a search.
"I'm not afraid of you cops, I've gotten in fights with cops in Ohio and broke their arms in three places," he said, according to the affidavit. "I've broken skulls too!" The affidavit noted that alcohol didn't appear to be a factor during the incident.
According to Miami-Dade police reports, here's what happened:
The plane was taxiing when a flight attendant alerted the captain of a passenger ``talking in a loud tone of voice and stating that he is Palestinian and that he wanted to kill all the Jews.''
As the flight attendant tried to give instructions before taking off, Asad, who was in seat 14-A, was loud once again. He was drinking a beer, apparently from the first class cabin where his daughter was seated.
At points Asad was speaking in a foreign language, thought to be Arabic.
