Man with ISIS tattoo kicked off flight before take-off

egtmedia59Displaying an ISIS flag tattooed on your arm is asking to be removed from your flight, as a man discovered last week on a Norwegian flight from Sweden to Greece.

A passenger said to have “an ISIS flag or a verse of the Koran” tattooed on his arm was removed from the flight at the captain’s command, along with his female companion.

The flight was heading from the Swedish capital, Stockholm, to Heraklion in Greece. The crew are believed to have refused to fly with the man aboard, according to Britain’s Daily Mail.

MEANWHILE, from North Carolina comes news of an earlier case. No sooner had Mohamed Ahmed Radwan, a Muslim man, boarded an American Airlines flight than the flight attendant said on the public address system: “Mohamed Ahmed, Seat 25-A: I will be watching you.”

When Radwan asked about the announcements, the attendant reportedly responded that he was being “too sensitive”.

Radwan, indignant, then reported the incident to two other American Airlines employees and was told he must leave the plane as he had made the first air stewardess “uncomfortable”.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations has filed an official complaint about the incident.
