Breitbart.com reports

June 1, 2015  in part: 

31-year-old Tahera Ahmad, who serves as the Muslim chaplain at Northwestern University, claimed over the weekend that she was discriminated against because a United Airlines flight attendant allegedly refused to give her a full can of unopened Diet Coke. When asked for an explanation as to why she had been refused her unopened Diet Coke, the flight attendant allegedly told her that the Coke can could be used as a “weapon on the plane,” Ahmad stated in a Facebook post. After she complained, a passenger told her, “You Moslem you need to shut the — up,” according to Ahmad’s recounting of what happened on board. Ahmad’s Facebook page was taken down this afternoon.

Without any evidence (but for her firsthand account) that the incident ever occurred, many in the mainstream media have taken to reporting on Ahmad’s account as a case of “Islamophobia.”

Islamic supremacist groups such as CAIR (Council on American-Islamic relations) have condemned United, telling Al Jazeera that they have taken an interest in filing a lawsuit on behalf of Ahmad.

Ahmad’s claims of discrimination have not been corroborated by any passengers, and United Airlines rejects that any wrongdoing or acts of discrimination occurred.

United Airlines released a statement that the flight attendant “attempted several times to accommodate Ms. Ahmad’s beverage request.” However, her post has since gone viral, with many calling for a boycott of United Airlines due to its alleged mistreatment of Ahmad.

United Airlines clearly changed how they responded to the flight attendant’s alleged denial of a Diet Coke to Tahera Ahmad.  After the alleged incident, the top female Muslim in the country joined forces with the Chicago Chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations for a press conference.  

ABC news reports:  “United previously issued a statement that described the incident as 'a misunderstanding regarding a can of diet soda.' The airline sharpened its stance as Ahmad and the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations prepared Wednesday for a news conference in Chicago." 

ABC news reports:   "A flight attendant who refused to give a Muslim passenger an unopened can of Coca-Cola, allegedly telling her it could be used 'as a weapon,' will no longer be serving customers for that airline, the company said today." 

Therefore, United Airlines fired the flight attendant after being bullied by Islamists, CAIR and liberal progressives even though firing was not mentioned in the airline’s first response.

Another passenger on this flight gave a report to Shoebat.com  “SHE LIED! Says United Airlines witness to ‘Diet Coke’ incident involving Muslim woman who got a flight attendant fired for alleged ‘discrimination.’"

Tahera Ahmad is a leading Islamist activist in the United States.  Tahera Ahmad:

  • "posted a picture to Facebook of her standing next to Suhaib Webb, who is the Imam of the Islamic Society of Boston, an outfit run under the same umbrella organization as the mosque attended by Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.  Her FB page also included a plethora of other convicted terrorists. Webb has a demonstrated history of radical connections, including him being a close confidant of Al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al Awlaki prior to the 9/11 attacks."   Source Facebook.com and Breitbart.com     
  • has supported leadership for premier Muslim organizations including the Islamic Society of North America and the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago.”  Source Northwestern University where Ahmad is Chaplain.  
  • "was the first woman to recite the Quran at an Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) conference."   Source Huffington Post.   
  • was honored at the White House as a leading Muslim female.”  Source Northwestern University where Ahmad is Chaplain.  
  • “attended a Ramadan dinner hosted by President Barack Obama.” Source Northwestern University where Ahmad is Chaplain.  

Tahera Ahmad’s boasting at the Northwestern University website about her affiliation with and support for CAIR and ISNA as well as her role in the 2013 ISNA conference clearly characterizes her as an Islamist activist.  Ahmad’s associations with these groups places her in the company of and support for Muslim Brotherhood linked organizations that promote and defend Sharia law in the United States.   

United Airlines initial response that called the incident a misunderstanding and did not fire the flight attendant was insufficient for Islamists and the Islamist loving media.    Criticizing the Islamist prophet Muhammad is far from being the only infidel behavior that will result in severe Muslim retaliation.  Just even appear to be concerned about radical Islam and your job, your family’s financial security and your future reputation could be destroyed.

Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send that urges United Airline officials to disregard the bullying tactics of CAIR and leftists and exhibit fairness to their 82,000 employees and millions of passengers by rehiring the erroneously accused flight attendant.   Suggested subject line and email content are provided below.  Email contact information is provided further down in the article.

SUGGESTED EMAIL SUBJECT LINE:

Please exhibit fairness to the 82,000 United Airlines employees and millions of passengers by rehiring the erroneously accused flight attendant.

SUGGESTED EMAIL CONTENT:

I am very disappointed that United Airlines fired a flight attendant based upon the uncorroborated, contested and embellished allegations of an Islamist activist who claims she was denied a Diet Coke because she is a Muslim.

Tahera Ahmad’s claims of discrimination have not been corroborated by any passengers.

One passenger reports that her claim of discrimination was a lie.  That passenger also asserts that Ahmad quickly resorted to social media to pounce on the opportunity to shine the light on herself (as the leading female Islamist in America.)  http://shoebat.com/2015/06/05/she-lied-says-united-airlines-witness-to-diet-coke-incident-involving-muslim-woman-who-got-a-flight-attendant-fired-for-alleged-discrimination/

United Airlines initially called the incident a misunderstanding and rejected that any discrimination occurred.   However, CBS reports The airline sharpened its stance as Ahmad and the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations prepared Wednesday for a news conference in Chicago.  http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/muslim-chaplain-derogatory-remarks-made-united-flight-31498871

In case you are not aware of Tahera Ahmad’s Islamist activist history.  Tahera Ahmad:

Please don’t give place to this embellished propaganda and these bullying tactics.  Your employees and passengers deserve better.

Please exhibit fairness to United Airlines’ 82,000 employees and millions of passengers by rehiring the erroneously accused flight attendant. 

Thank you.
