ISIS in the skies: Fears of 9/11-style attack as two commercial pilots join terror group

FEARS of a new 9/11-style terror attack on the West have been raised after two commercial pilots were revealed to have joined Islamic State (ISIS).

The men were employed by separate international airlines and were flying as recently as March, Australian authorities said.

Tommy Abu Alfatih and Ridwan Agustin, both Indonesian pilots working for high-profile airlines AirAsia and Garuda Indonesia, developed links with the jihadi group through social media.

    It appears that Muslim pilots will appear “secular” for years in the UK or US or elsewhere, and their evil twisted ideology will lead them to fly into a building.

    Would anyone willingly risk their life flying in a plane piloted by a Muslim?

    On the other hand, wouldn’t pilots like these conceal the fact they are even Muslim – perhaps passing themselves off as Syrian or Iraqi Christians, for example – and then smash a plane into a building when able to pull it off?

      More common than crashing into buildings has been Muslim pilots crashing into the ocean taking all the passengers with them. And no, I would never knowingly fly in a plane piloted by a Muslim.

      Generally muslims don’t like to pretend to be anything but muslim as they can’t pull it off their intolerance and extremist views show through

        I wouldn’t hedge my bets.

    • No. I would ask for another flight.

  • Muslims should not be allowed on planes as passengers, much less as crew, and still less as pilots!

    • Censored_EG

      They should be restricted to their own airlines. Period. Even then, a Muslim pilot would sacrifice the lives of all his (allegedly Muslim) fellow passengers for the greater good of striking terror to the ‘kuffar’.

  • As long as the TSA continues groping passengers, I am not worried.

    But keep in mind , if this Quran reading , Mosque going, devout muslim that cites the quranic jihad verses , slaughters civilians as a favour to allah …….it has NOTHING to do with islam because it’s a Religion Of Peace that he hijacked and smeared the image for the 99.9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% Peaceful ones that reject violence and love the jews and gays.
