    Police kick a Muslim activist off an American Airlines flight after dispute with white passenger

    Police kick a Muslim activist off an American Airlines flight and lead her away in handcuffs after a ‘white passenger said she made him uncomfortable’

    A photograph appearing to show a Muslim Congressional candidate being escorted off an American Airlines flight in handcuffs has sparked outrage on the internet. 

    The image was captured by a passenger on board the plane, which was set to take off from Newark, New Jersey on Saturday morning. 

    The passenger also shared video footage of the woman – believed to be noted author and activist Amani al-Khatahtbeh –  speaking with airline crew and police before she was booted off the aircraft. 

    A photograph appearing to show a Muslim Congressional candidate being escorted off an American Airlines flight in handcuffs has sparked outrage on the internet.

    ‘Had to get off my flight because a man asked a Muslim woman to get off the plane. @AmericanAirlines employees followed his request and gave the woman no explanation,’ the passenger wrote beneath a video of the woman speaking politely to flight crew. 

    A second clip showed a police officer coming aboard the aircraft to speak with the woman, who said she was happy to get off the plane so long as they also disembarked the man with whom she had an alleged dispute. She identified the man as being a white male who was seated in first class. 

    It’s believed Amani al-Khatahtbeh – who ran for Congress this year – was the woman in the clip, as she recounted an identical incident on her own Twitter page at the exact same time.  

    ”I had the craziest experience in TSA this morning. An entitled white man behind me insisted on cutting me in line because I was ‘still taking my shoes off.’ When I said he could wait like everyone else, he started going off about how he’s ‘pre check’ and ‘first class”, she told her 28,000 followers. 

    ‘He then proceeded to not only shove his things before mine, but then RUN THROUGH THE MACHINE and TSA did NOTHING! Not only did they not do anything, a TSA officer had the audacity to tell ME to ‘cut it out”.

    ‘Y’all know if I, a VEILED MUSLIM WOMAN, had the audacity to throw a temper tantrum and run through TSA security, I would have gotten BODIED. I would have been detained, missed my flight, possibly gotten charged, etc.’

    Later al-Khatahtbeh updated her followers on the unfolding situation by tweeting: ‘Guys he made a complaint about me and @American is attempting to remove me from the flight.’

    She then tweeted the airline directly stating: ‘ONE OF YOUR MANAGERS IS TRYING TO GET POLICE TO REMOVE ME OFF 9:55 EWR (Newark Liberty Airport) TO CHARLOTTE.’

     Al-Khatahtbeh has not tweeted since. 

    Her brother, however, shared an update on Twitter saying that he was en route to Newark Liberty to try and find further information. 

    Al-Khatahtbeh became the the first Muslim woman in New Jersey to run for federal office when she announced she was seeking to represent the state’s 6th Congressional District during the 2020 election. She was unsuccessful. 

    The activist – was named one of the 25 most influential Muslim Americans by CNN –
