A Muslim man in the United States was thrown off a plane for saying the Islamic phrase of “inshallah”, which means “God willing” in Arabic, a report says.

Khairuldeen Makhzoomi, a 26-year-old Berkeley graduate (pic above), was removed from a Southwest Airlines flight at Los Angeles International Airport in April after another passenger overheard him speaking Arabic on his mobile phone, The Independent reported on Thursday.

Shortly after sitting on his chair Makhzoomi called his uncle in Baghdad, Iraq, to tell him about his excitement of having a brief encounter with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

Before ending the call, he used the Islamic phrase of “inshallah.” The man noticed a female passenger staring at him but he thought she was irritated because he spoke loudly.

But within two minutes one guy came with police officers, and told him to get off the plane, he told CNN. “I can’t believe how fast they were.”

An agent escorted him outside and questioned him why he spoke Arabic in “today’s political climate.” “You need to be very honest with us with what you said about the martyrs. Tell us everything you know about the martyrs,” the agent said to him.

Makhzoomi said then dogs were brought in to sniff his luggage, and he was body-searched and his wallet was captured.

“The US is the land of freedom. People respect the rule of law. How could people be humiliated like this? That was the real shock,” he told The Independent.

“I lived under Saddam Hussein. I know what discrimination feels like,” he added.

The airline did not allow Makhzoomi to re-board the Oakland-bound plane. He booked another flight with Delta.

Southwest Airlines spokeswoman Brandy King said in a statement to The Independent the passenger was investigated after he made “potentially threatening comments.”

“This is what islamophobia got this country into,” said Makhzoomi, “They discriminated against a student who came to this country as an Iraqi refugee to pursue his dreams.”

Complaint filed

On Wednesday, the Bay Area chapter of the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) filed a formal complaint with federal transportation officials demanding a full investigation of the incident.

Saba Maher with the Council of American Islamic Relations called the incident “an incredibly traumatic experience” for the man.

“There seems to be this idea there was nothing done wrong, there was no harm done to my client,” said Maher. “However, there was a harm done. His civil liberties were violated.”

“There is a trend unfortunately of American Muslims being escorted off of airplanes because of their perceived religious identity,” she stated.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
