Jewish man arrested for davening on plane

I find it interesting that when a Muslim man appears suspicious on an airplane, the passengers all want out, and even declare mutiny, for fear of dying. The flight attendants on the other hand want the flight to go ahead.

But when a Jew starts davening on an airplane, the only people who want him to stop are the flight attendants, and all the passengers know that no harm is being done by a Jewish guy praying. They know that the only people to ever try hijacking planes have been Muslims.

Some fellow passengers are questioning why an Orthodox Jewish man was removed from an Air Canada Jazz flight in Montreal last week for praying.The man was a passenger on a Sept. 1 flight from Montreal to New York City when the incident happened.

The airplane was heading towards the runway at the Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport when eyewitnesses said the Orthodox man began to pray.

“He was clearly a Hasidic Jew,” said Yves Faguy, a passenger seated nearby. “He had some sort of cover over his head. He was reading from a book.

“He wasn’t exactly praying out loud but he was lurching back and forth,” Faguy added.

The action didn’t seem to bother anyone, Faguy said, but a flight attendant approached the man and told him his praying was making other passengers nervous.
