Was the Muslim Migrant Airplane Mechanic Who Sabotaged a Plane Really Just a Disgruntled Union Man?

My latest in PJ Media:

Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani, a Muslim migrant from Iraq who up until recently was a plane mechanic for American Airlines at Miami International Airport (MIA), was, he said, so proud to be a Union Man that he tried to murder 150 people because of a union dispute. That was his initial story, anyway, and everyone bought it – after all, who ever heard of a Muslim being involved in trying to sabotage aircraft for any other reason?

Alani was arrested “on a sabotage charge accusing him of disabling a navigation system on a flight with 150 people aboard before it was scheduled to take off from Miami International Airport earlier this summer.” He explained that he did this because he was “upset” over the ongoing impasse between his mechanics’ union and American Airlines, which has “affected him financially.”

As always, there was absolutely nothing, nothing whatsoever, for members of the public to be concerned about here. Alani stated “that his intention was not to cause harm to the aircraft or its passengers.” Oh good. All he wanted to do was “cause a delay or have the flight canceled in anticipation of obtaining overtime work.”

Well, that’s reasonable. Let’s not rush to judgment here. After all, who among us hasn’t exposed hundreds of people to the risk of a terrifying, fiery death in order to get some overtime hours?

There is much more. Read the rest here.
