Miami, FL - A man who allegedly yelled “I want to kill all the Jews’’ on a Detroit-bound plane at Miami International Airport has pleaded not guilty.

The written plea was entered in Miami for 43-year-old Mansor Mohammad Asad, of Toledo, Ohio. His next court hearing will be March 25, with a tentative trial date set for April 5.

Asad remains in custody.

He was arrested Jan. 6 and charged with threats against a public servant, disorderly conduct and resisting an officer without violence to his person. A fourth charge of criminal mischief was added Wednesday.

Police said Asad was arrested after a taxiing Northwest Airlines flight returned to a gate. Authorities said the incident didn’t appear to be terrorism-related.

Asad faces 11 years in prison.

This Arab is dangerous. He is said to be mentally deranged and his heart is filled with hate and no self-control. Deport him to his home country after his jail sentence.

That's just the maximum sentence. I'm sure he won't get near that much.

Uh, it does say he's from Toledo, Ohio. What if that's where he was born, and his home country is the USA? I know that the sort of thing you type comes naturally, but do try and think it through in future, OK?
