Miami: Muslim American Airlines mechanic who sabotaged plane had ISIS videos, spoke of wanting to harm non-Muslims

We were told that he did this because of a union dispute. Because he wanted more overtime hours. Why the rush to judgment? Why the jumping to conclusions? Why will the initial stated motive be reported far more widely than this will be?

Has the pro-jihad American Airlines given Alani a bonus yet?

“Amid Terrorism Talk, Bail Denied in Miami Plane Sabotage Case,” by Curt Anderson, NBC News, September 18, 2019:

Alani was born in Iraq but is a U.S. citizen.

According to a federal criminal complaint, Alani admitted to sabotaging the airplane July 17 as it was scheduled to fly from Miami to Nassau, Bahamas, because he was upset about stalled union contract negotiations….
