(file photo)Istanbul, Turkey - A US citizen caused delays to a Turkish Airlines flight between Istanbul and New York after complaining that there were “Arab-types” on board.

Police were called after United States national Daniel Sussman Pincus started to shout complaints about “Arab- types” on board a Istanbul to New York flight.

After escorting Pincus off the plane, all other passengers were forced off the flight to undergo security checks in accordance with international practice.

The flight eventually took off after a delay of about two hours.

Pincus was released by police and later caught a flight to London.

He is lucky they simply didn't throw him off the plane at 30,000 ft....I guess the same kind of genius would walk into the main cathedral in Warsaw during Sunday mass and yell "you are all a bunch of antisemitim"....not sure why we feel it necessary to post articles about every moron whose last name sounds like a yid...

What the heck are arab types?
Either you are an arab or not!
Is there a jew type?
Agav, rav Miller ZT"L was very upset at the definition of the websters dictionary of the word jew. He would say that we have to act and behave in a way that that definition is reversed.
I am not the mussar type either.

#1 My initial response was like yours --- until I noticed the following statement:
"After escorting Pincus off the plane, all other passengers were forced off the flight to undergo security checks in accordance with international practice. "
Perhaps NO security checks were performed prior to initial boarding and that was the major issue. Someone may be capatilizing on his statements to make another issue the focus.

You are a bit meshuge...check the same story on the other wire services...the Turkish airline has some of the best security in the world (not El-Al but very close)...this was a case of someone clearly not thinking about where he was and who he was....

After any type of disruption like this, it is standard policy for all passengers to deplane and have to go back through security. All international flights arriving at a U.S. airport must conform to most of the same security reqirements as those originating in the U.S.

Not necessarily a nut- did you ever drink a bunch of Turkish coffee? I am Not trying to be funny here (for a change)- Very High cafeine content ....can make you temporarily delusional/paranoid, change your heart-rate etc. You would have to look at the man's history and see if he has a habit of doing dum things in general, is mentally disturbed or a general trouble maker.

Um...sorry, but Turkey has few Arabs. They're Turks. Totally different ethnic group. Arabs are from Arabia and thereabouts. Moslems, perhaps. But not Arabs.

i know he sounds crazy. however. . . this is the fear that unfortunately has been instilled in people all over the world. of course, all arabs are not terrorists, but all terrorists are arabs, and they have reeked havoc all over.

Not all Moslems are Arabs.
Turks are not Arabs, neither are Iranians!

And some Arabs are Christians!

Get your terms of reference correct so when you try to correct someone else the focus isn't on your own ignorance!
