Well, this would be a rather scary thing to have happen on a flight:

From CNN:

A United Airlines flight made a U-turn in the sky after a passenger ran toward the cockpit screaming “jihad, jihad,” according to a government official with direct knowledge of the incident.


A cell phone video shows the man, bruised on his face, held down by other passengers.

At one point, he pleads, “Please stop, please stop, they said call it off.” At another, the man seems to cry as he says, “I’m so sorry.”

“Don’t move,” one passenger said, apparently trying to calm the man. “You’re OK. We’re going to get you off this plane, buddy.”


Here’s the video of the incident that was posted to YouTube:

But don’t worry. It looks like it was just a nut, not a terrorist:

We await a public confirmation, however.

But some see the reporting of this story as “propaganda” or anti-Islam:

Some “joke.” More:

If “jihad” isn’t “synonymous” with “terrorist,” can we at least agree that rushing the cockpit is what a terrorist might do? Sheesh!
