AGAIN!: Northwest Amsterdam Flight Disrupted by Unruly Middle Eastern Passengers; UPDATED + VIDEO

By Debbie Schlussel


After the same flight to Detroit has already had two incidents, including the terrorist attack by Muslim Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, they know better than to act “unruly.”  But several passengers, whom a Detroit radio station just identified as “Middle Eastern men,” did it anyway, because they’re trying to see how much they can get away with, until we finally take them seriously (as in, not yet). Here’s the latest on Northwest Flight 243, a flight similar to Flight 253:

DETROIT — Authorities are on board a grounded Northwest Airlines flight after an incident was reported.Flight No. 243 from Amsterdam was taxied to a gate at Detroit Metro Airport and passengers are being let off.Local 4 has learned that there was a report of several unruly passengers on board.Detroit Metro Airport Spokesman Mike Conway told Local 4 they do not believe the incident is a threat.

Nope, not a “threat.” Just a dress rehearsal. WAKE. THE. HECK. UP. AMERICA.

**** UPDATEMore:

Sources tell Fox 2 that a flight from Amsterdam into Detroit Metropolitan Airport was held on the tarmac after landing because of unruly behavior by some of the passengers.

The source says four men from Saudi Arabia were saying something in Arabic that alarmed four on-board Federal Air Marshals. The Marshals speak Arabic. A decision was made to stop the plane on the tarmac away from the passenger terminal and remove the men from the plane.

Once the men were removed, the rest of passengers were then taken to the terminal for deboarding.

The Transportation Security Administration says the unruly passengers were interviewed by Customs and Border Protection officials.

But the TSA says the passengers were released and no arrests were made.

Delta Air Lines spokeswoman Susan Elliott says the crew of Northwest Flight 243 requested that authorities meet the plane Tuesday after it landed because four passengers didn’t follow their instructions. She says nobody was injured but wouldn’t describe what the passengers were doing.

Debbie, that is the problem. We refuse to acknowledge that a threat exists and its a real one. The problem is not us but Islamists and their jihad ideology. America has yet to wake up.

NormanF on January 12, 2010 at 3:30 pm

The linked report now says the passengers are Saudi. I say interrogate them, send them back home, then put them on the no-fly no-how no-way list.

Raymond in DC on January 12, 2010 at 3:56 pm

They’re doing recon. Putting them on a no fly list won’t help, because they’re information gathering, and reporting.

Kirk on January 12, 2010 at 4:31 pm

    The fact is..these people are serious about destroying us. Trial runs,testing security…DEADLY SERIOUS, and if this country doesn’t WAKE UP SOON,9/11 WILL happen again. MUST READ !!! http://www.islamrevealed.com. Updated daily.

    no sharia here on January 13, 2010 at 11:42 am

I say put them on a plane for sure. Put them on a plane flown remotely, then ditch it over some nasty muslim nation. Maybe then they’ll start to get the message, but I sincerely doubt it.

Stockpile your weapons folks, it’s gonna be a long messy fight.

NJBeachbum on January 12, 2010 at 4:32 pm

Nothing to see here people. Move along.

I’ soooo sick of looking the other way!! How many people must die before we acknowledge that we are facing evil on an unprecidented scale??

Doug on January 12, 2010 at 4:35 pm

Definitely a pattern here!
Why don’t we hear about Dutch,finns,swedes,germans,anybody else acting up on these flights!
Yep, somethings a brewing…..

I'm gettin P*ssed on January 12, 2010 at 5:23 pm

If Sikhs are allowed to carry knives and wear Turbans.
In Canada muslims do not have to remove burkha to vote.
Why can’t Christians and Jews have their own airline, so that travelling with muslims would be like Un Kosher?
We should have an airline where muslims are totally banned..
they are too hateful and dangerous.
just remember Obama is the son of a Muslim.
Obama spent 7 years praying to Allah in Indonesia..
Obama said the Muslim call to prayer is one of the most beautiful sounds on earth.
Obama said America is not a Chritian nation.
Obama said America one of the largest Muslim nations.

Will, A little light will do ‘ya – Sikh’s – turbans and all – were formed hundreds of years ago to fight the Islamic threat to India. Perhaps Christians should start wearing knives in their boots, oh wait, they already do, and I support the right of both to bear arms, only don’t be so ignorant when it comes to turbanned ppls. The Pope wears a yarmulke looking thingie on this head and he’s not an orthodox Jew. The problem with Americans are their lack of education on culture and people, which is exactly how terrorists get one over them. The WH Thanksgiving party crashers case in point.

The answer is not to kill all people of color Will, or those who wear funny hats, it’s not about forming a White Surpremacy Airline, just ask Debbie.

This one, the one today, with the Saudi’s who were overheard by 4 air marshalls who spoke Arabic and obviously said something to see if the air marshalls would give him a pass or not…

You might want to see how the previous one is being bollixed up by this eye-witnesses report. Like I always say it’s always more instructive to see how any Admin handles terrorst threats by the aftermath. As to where the problem is Will, it is the lack of Will inthe FBI to deal with this, or getting paid off by the Islamic terrorist mob in Chicago to muck up this incident.

    good points Diamondring..

    will on January 12, 2010 at 6:38 pm

Hey! Ask Janet Crapolitano the system works 😉

peter_principle on January 12, 2010 at 5:53 pm

I think most of America IS AWAKE to this. It’s our sorry a$$ politicians and judges who are not! They are the ones aiding the enemy! They’re using these monsters as a avenue to hack away at the rights of honest law abiding citizens. It’s about control. I say get your pitchforks ready and let’s run the bums out of town!

zippy on January 12, 2010 at 7:06 pm

These are ploys to distract from other more critical targets, and my guess is these musbots will still be allowed to fly with unlimited access to our skies.

Staged Diversions on January 12, 2010 at 7:39 pm


Do you all have what’s in my jar? How many warnings do we need before we jump off the PC bandwagon and squelch these threats?

Abby on January 12, 2010 at 8:20 pm

Our media is betraying us to death. Nothing to see here, move along, move along.
I’m flying this spring and look at it like I have a title fight coming up. Unreal.

Joe on January 12, 2010 at 8:52 pm

“But the TSA says the passengers were released and no arrests were made.”

This really is a ridiculous policy. Either these Saudi passengers did nothing, or they did something. If these Saudis disrupted a flight, they need to be deported and flown back to Saudi Arabia at a minimum, and placed on a no-fly list. Ignorance on the part of such passengers is no longer an excuse, due to the frequency of such incidents. When these “testers” actually face some real prison time for their antics, they will stop or at least be greatly reduced.

sorrow01 on January 12, 2010 at 9:46 pm

Oh we are gonna get hit big time… Do you think it will be over MI?

sharon on January 12, 2010 at 10:56 pm

They are getting close. It is a distraction for the authorities. While effort are being made to secure the skies, plans are being made by terrorists to attack on the ground.

We have to be very aware of that. Their tactics is being overlooked by the law agencies.

While we are focusing on watching Muslim passengers coming from abroad, we are losing the focus on the ground.

They are the enemy within and they are armed and ready to terrorize us. Already they are here.

From my own experience we should always improvise and be ahead of the terror organisations.

Very sad to say, they are far ahead of the law agencies.

Daniel. on January 12, 2010 at 11:20 pm

I guess my question is; Why did the passangers let them get off the plane with there bodies in tact? These passangers should have beat all 5 of them bloody and with eyeballs removed. What were they doing? Just sitting in there seats scared? Passangers have to take a stand when these things take place.

Larry on January 13, 2010 at 7:12 am

I agree this is more than likely a diversionary tactic and if nothing else we are demonstrating to the enemy that we are not willing to do anything about it – and our government and media schleps are helping them out.

peter_principle on January 13, 2010 at 7:16 am

Peter, you nailed this one. It’s all about as far as I am concerned the CIA operatives looking to stage terror attacks to prepare the nation for one world government through intimidation.

Bob Porrazzo on January 13, 2010 at 7:21 am

These scumbags should have been shown the door and pitched out onto the tarmac just before the takeoff roll. A few of those episodes and we’ll be done with the Islamo-shenannigans.

JLin on January 13, 2010 at 9:14 am

Sorry to say, But Everybody is more scared of the lawyers suing companies out of business or suing you out of your house than they are about arresting or deporting this scum.
Arrest one and some scumbag lawyer will get him off, then scumbag and raghead get a huge payday.
I ‘ll be the 1st to say it here, I don’t know what we can do?

I'm gettin P*ssed on January 13, 2010 at 10:43 am

There’s something about the American psyche — and we are, I’m proud to say, open-minded, fair, tolerant, naive, good-natured — but which in some weak minds flirts with the suicidally stupid. It’s almost as if the predilection to impartiality blinds them (us?) to even the most compelling evidence urging us to yield to the suspicion that that web-footed, duck-billed, quacking, feathered, waddling creature may really be a duck.

I refer to the Fox newsman narrator of this piece. It should not have required a relinquishment of his reportorial impartiality for him to look at the world today as it is and see that five “middle-eastern men”, of all people, on a flight from Amsterdam, of all places, to Detroit, even more surprisingly, who chose to be unruly, were certainly “doing” something. Even if it was only discussing how good those salted peanuts were. Why else are we reporting this kind of thing?

Here’s what I mean. In the clip at 0:41 seconds, the narrator reports it was said that the air marshals perceived that they ” … even made inappropriate jokes about terror, in Arabic.”

Hmmm. Not a nice, smart, considerate, or friendly thing to joke about, on today’s airplanes. Especially on the same route that recently almost lost one. Unless you couldn’t care less. Sounds to me like that rises to the level of at least “something”.

Then, at 1:11 into the clip, the cub reporter takes it upon himself to conclude — ah, the blithe, self-satisfied, vaporous miasma of world-without-end callow youth — that “So far, no reason to believe the men were attempting anything.”

Debbie, I join with the rest of the commentators to this piece: how close to us must these poisonous snakes slither before we put on our stomping boots and grab our clubs and our axes?

Dernon Ruton on January 13, 2010 at 10:55 am

Saudi Arabia? Hmmm…. 15 of the 19 9/11 terrorists were Saudis. The more things change…

NormanF on January 13, 2010 at 11:31 am

They were questioned and released and so they’re learning terrorizing passengers on a plane carries no real price. Until next time.

NormanF on January 13, 2010 at 11:32 am

If something ain’t going on, Muslims are laughing there asses off right now. Almost like ringin doorbells and running off like we did as kids. Muslim humor at our expense?

I'm gettin P*ssed on January 13, 2010 at 11:46 am

I said this before, but it bears repeating.
I used to work for Delta Airlines before 9-11. I left their employment due to the horrific examples I witnessed on a daily basis concerning the welfare of their passengers.
As with all the other incidences concerning the Amsterdam to Detroit flights, the people to blame who should be held accountable are the Northwest employees who are allowing these people on board these flights. They willfully allowed two men on board without passports previously and they are continuing to allow men on board with questionable intentions.
Why is it no other airline is having this problem with flights leaving Amsterdam? Employees are on a schedule, which means the same gate agents are most likely working the gate that these flights are leaving from….Hello it doesn’t take a genius to see the pattern here.

perception of truth on January 13, 2010 at 12:22 pm

Same can be said for the Air Tran Airlines that seem to be having the same sort of problems here in the states.

perception of truth on January 13, 2010 at 12:24 pm

You can bet your sweet ass…if this bomb had detonated, Obama would have made sure to rule this as “mechanical failure” and laid blame on the airline.

Anything but terrorism.

Stupid is as stupid does..Obama is just that.

Please let him leave here and go reside in a Muslim country where he can live in la la land and HOPE that the radicals will CHANGE just as he wants them to…

Every day he continues to do more and more that shows how non-genius he is. He knows nothing about the economy, nothing about running a country and nothing about how to handle issues regarding war.

He is only good at: lying, not releasing his school records, using a SSN that was issued to a person born in 1890, not producing a valid birth certificate and coming here illegally.

Scum…comes to mind.

Right after 9/11 happened, I thought to myself, “finally, Americans will understand what Israel has to put up with. They will finally accept what bad dudes these terrorists really are.”

Since Americans have refused to understand what 9/11 represented, and what large threat the terrorists are, and what their long terms goals are, I am now firmly convinced that we will NEVER learn.

We are so strangled by political correctness and phony utopian ideology, it’s going to be very difficult for us to wake up from our politically correct coma and do the right thing.

Unfortunately, Debbie, you are going to have to continue to shout at the top of your lungs in the hope that someone will hear you.

verbatim on January 15, 2010 at 2:50 am

This was a recon mission. What they learned is that the Air Marshals understand Arabic. I never knew this. Now they do.
