Sorry this picture has nothing to do with this email! Just thought it had to be shared.....
This email was forwarded to me by sister-in-law Linda who received it from a friend of ours from Colorado. The strange thing about this email besides the contents it was forwarded by a friend of mine Gene,who lives of all things half of a mile from me. His wife Barbara and I were best friends and lost her to Breast Cancer in Sept 2002. Strange how emails go all around the world and end back at your neighbors home.
I need to call Gene and find out when this was happened. He is retired from Nasa so I know if it were not true he never would of sent it out.
One week ago, I went to Ohio on business and to see my father. On Tuesday, November the 17th,
I returned home. If you read the papers the 18th you may have seen
a blurb where a AirTran flight was cancelled from Atlanta to Houston
due to a man who refused to get off of his cell phone before takeoff.
It was on Fox. This was NOT what happened.
I was in 1st class coming home. 11 Muslim men got on the plane in full attire.
2 sat in 1st class and the rest peppered themselves throughout
the plane all the way to the back. As the plane taxied to the
runway the stewardesses gave the safety spiel we are all so
Familiar with. At that time, one of the men got on his cell and called
one of his companions in the back and proceeded to talk on the
Phone in Arabic very loudly and very aggressively. This took the 1st
stewardess out of the picture for she repeatedly told the man
That cell phones were not permitted at the time. He ignored her as if
she was not there.
The 2nd man who answered the phone did the same
and this took out the 2nd stewardess. In the back of the plane
at this time, 2 younger Muslims, one in the back aisle, and one in
front of him, window, began to show footage of a porno they had
Taped the night before, and were very loud about it. Now..they are
only permitted to do this prior to Jihad. If a Muslim man goes
into a strip club, he has to view the woman via mirror with his
Back to her. (don't ask me..I don't make the rules, but I've
studied) The 3rd stewardess informed them that they were not to have
electronic devices on at this time. To which one of the men
Said "shut up infidel dog!" She went to take the camcorder and he
began to scream in her face in Arabic. At that exact moment, all
11 of them got up and started to walk the cabin. This is where I
had had enough! I got up and started to the back where I heard
A voice behind me from another Texan twice my size say "I got
Your back." I grabbed the man who had been on the phone by the arm
And said "you WILL go sit down or you Will be thrown from this plane!"
As I "led" him around me to take his seat, the fellow Texan
grabbed him by the back of his neck and his waist and headed
out with him. I then grabbed the 2nd man and said, "You WILL do the
same!" He protested but adrenaline was flowing now and he was
going to go. As I escorted him forward the plane doors open and
3 TSA agents and 4 police officers entered. Me and my new Texan
friend were told to cease and desist for they had this under control.
I was happy to oblige actually. There was some commotion
in the back, but within moments, all 11 were escorted off the plane.
They then unloaded their luggage.
We talked about the occurrence and were in disbelief that it had happen, when
suddenly, the door open again and on walked all 11!! Stone faced, eyes
front and robotic (the only way I can describe it). The stewardess from the
back had been in tears and when she saw this, she
was having NONE of it! Being that I was up front, I heard and
saw the whole ordeal. She told the TSA agent there was NO WAY
she was staying on the plane with these men. The agent told her
they had searched them and were going to go through their luggage with
a fine tooth comb and that they were allowed to proceed to Houston.
The captain and co-captain came out and told the agent "we and
our crew will not fly this plane!" After a word or two, the entire crew,
luggage in tow, left the plane. 5 minutes later, the cabin door opened
again and a whole new crew walked on.
Again...this is where I had had enough!!! I got up and asked "What
the hell is going on!? I was told to take my seat. They were sorry for
the delay and I would be home shortly. I said "I'm getting off this plane".
The stewardess sternly told me that she could not allow me to get off.
(now I'm mad!) I said "I am a grown man who bought this ticket, whose
time is mine with a family at home and I am going through that door,
or I'm going through that door with you under my arm!! But I
am going through that door!!" And I heard a voice behind me say
"so am I". Then everyone behind us started to get up and say the
same. Within 2 minutes, I was walking off that plane where I
Was met with more agents who asked me to write a statement. I had
5 hours to kill at this point so why the hell not. Due to the amount of
people who got off that flight, it was cancelled. I was supposed to be
in Houston at 6pm. I got here at 12:30am.
Look up the date. Flight #297 Atlanta to Houston.
If this wasn't a dry run, I don't know what one is. The
terrorists wanted to see how TSA would handle it, how the crew
Would handle it, and how the passengers would handle it.
I'm telling this to you because I want you to know..
The threat is real. I saw it with my own eyes..
My guess this happened a year ago or longer but still it reminds us to remember how we are not loved by others. Sad so Sad
I am getting ready for a concert at Festival Hill this afternoon. They have ask me to hand out Programs and I was glad to be included in this event. Hopefully I can sneak in a few pictures of inside the Concert Hall. I have posted the outside gardens and chapel but not the inside.
Wish I you were here to share this with me. The weather is beautiful and I pray it stays this way because we are having a small family reunion next weekend. Oh boy grandbaby hugs and kisses coming soon.
Enjoy your weekend
Love to all
