Muslim American YouTube star says he was kicked off Delta flight for speaking Arabic
– Yahoo News
“A Muslim American YouTube star known for his viral video pranks said he and his friend were removed from a Delta Air Lines flight in London on Wednesday after passengers complained about their presence shortly before takeoff.
Adam Saleh posted cellphone video footage of himself and his friend, Slim Albaher, being escorted off the plane on the tarmac at Heathrow Airport. Saleh claims several passengers alerted the captain that they felt uncomfortable when he spoke Arabic while making a phone call to his mother before the New York City-bound flight took off.
“We’re getting kicked out because we spoke a different language,” Saleh says in the video posted to YouTube. “This is 2016. Delta Air Lines are kicking us out because we spoke a different language.”

Delta Passengers Say Adam Saleh Is Lying
– Daily Caller
“YouTube prankster Adam Saleh was “definitely racebaiting” when he claimed that he was kicked off of a Delta Airlines flight on Wednesday for speaking Arabic, a fellow passenger is claiming.
And the boyfriend of another man on the London-New York City flight says that Saleh is a “social media whore” who is lying about what happened before he was booted from the Delta airplane.
Saleh claimed in a now-viral video that he and a friend were kicked off of the airplane after he spoke to his mother on the phone in Arabic. The YouTube personality, who has numerous videos of airplane-related hoaxes on his YouTube channel, said that white passengers became outraged after he and his friend continued speaking in Arabic.
Delta issued a statement late Wednesday disputing Saleh’s claims. Saleh and his friend, “Slim” Albaher, released a video later reiterating their story.
But two passengers are disputing the claims about Saleh’s phone call and about speaking in Arabic.
“I was sat two seats away from the internet prankster and his friend. Neither of them was on any phone call I could hear them talking in plain American English,” a man named Anthony who claims he was two rows away from Saleh wrote on Reddit.
As evidence that he was on the flight, Anthony published a photo of his Delta boarding pass. The photo shows Anthony’s first name, though his last name is blocked out. A Delta Airlines spokesman told The Daily Caller that the document appears to be authentic and that Anthony’s seat, 36E, indeed was “in the vicinity” of Saleh’s.
Anthony says that Saleh told his friend, who goes by the name “Slim,” “to shout something in Arabic which he did a total of 4 times.”
After Slim shouted, a couple of other passengers told the Muslim men that they were making them and their children uncomfortable and asked “could they shut up.”
“They told her to shut up and then he shouted it again and her husband started saying it to them,” wrote Anthony, who claims he is biracial and has attended Arabic weddings.
Anthony also said that Saleh was filming passengers’ reactions to their outburst but were made to delete it by a Delta flight attendant.
“I literally watched him egging his friend on to shout out across the aeroplane, even after they were asked politely to stop they carried on and told people to shut their mouths,” Anthony said in response to questions from other Reddit users. “It was only when several people got up and the stewards came over they started saying it was racism, he was definately [sic] racebaiting.”

Report: Syrian Jihadi Parents Kiss Daughters Goodbye Before One Is Blown Up in Suicide Bombing
“Syrian “jihadi parents kissed their daughters goodbye shortly before one of them” was blown up by a remote detonator in a suicide bombing attack on a police station.
Video shows a jihadi father telling the two children, aged 7 and 9 years old, “how to carry out suicide bomb attacks” before a woman in a burka embraces them, the Daily Mail reports.
The 7-year-old is believed to have been killed in a suicide bombing attack on a police station in Damascus shortly after the video was filmed.
After the father asks one of the girls what she is going to do today, one of the girls responded that she is going to carry out a suicide bombing operation in Damascus. Both girls, dressed in burkas, can be heard saying “Allahu Akbar” at their father’s request.
A separate video shows the girls dressed in wooly hats and coats, embracing their mother before they left the room.
A man behind the camera asks the mother why she is sending her children into jihad so young.
“No one is young when it comes to jihad as every Muslim is supposed to participate in jihad,” she replied.”
