A man who claims his Muslim sister and her family were “harassed” on a Delta flight recently has turned to the popular social media site Twitter to express his disgust in how the airline allegedly handled the situation.
According to TheBlaze, Abed A. Ayoub’s sister was on board a flight with her husband and four children when she was allegedly verbally “assaulted” on a plane headed to Detroit. Ayoub is a civil rights lawyer, according to his social media account, who works as a legal and policy director for the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, and he absolutely blasted the airline on his Twitter account upon hearing the news of what his sister claimed was going on.
In his first string of tweets, Ayoub explained what happened, according to what his sister was telling him.
Things appeared to take a turn for the worse once Ayoub was told that the airline moved his sister and her family away from the people allegedly harassing her. He also claimed that one of the passengers on the plane had a video of the alleged incident, but it has yet to surface online.
It almost seems as if the civil rights lawyer is trying to make this into something more than it is to push an agenda. His motives come into question when looking at other tweets he has posted, some of which show strong support for Palestine and others which call on the DHS and TSA to “stop profiling” in their security screenings.
Whether or not his sister was actually harassed, as Ayoub claims, remains to be seen. And if she was, it would seem as if moving her to a different section of the plane would likely be a good way to put an end to it, especially if it was mid-flight.
