A Muslim British family traveling was stopped before they got on the plane. The Muslim father blamed Donald Trump’s “Muslim ban.” That was not true, a Facebook page linked to Taliban and Al Qaeda was registered to same address as British Muslim father whose Disneyland trip was blocked, not by Donald Trump, but by U.S. Homeland Security.
While they were waiting to board the plane, Mohammad Mahmood was called on the intercom and told that some of his family members would not be allowed to board. Their bags were removed from the plane and returned to them. They had to return all the duty-free goods they had purchased, and then were summarily escorted from the airport.
The U.S. authorities found a Facebook page linked to Taliban and Al Qaeda that was registered to same address as British Muslim father.
This UK Muslim family could have been on their way to bomb Disneyland.
Ignoring all the evidence that the family was linked to radical Islamic terrorists, the media was sympathetic.
CNN stated, “the kids were devastated.” “They had big tears in their eyes.”
ABC News reported that British Prime Minister David Cameron will look into claims that U.S. officials prevented the British Muslim family of 11 from flying to Disneyland for a planned holiday.
BBC reported that Mohammed Zahid Mahmood said he and his family – two brothers and their nine children – were told nothing except that they were not allowed to travel to the U.S. despite having previously obtained clearance – they claimed. He stated to BBC, “We were the only family that was of Asian, Muslim, sort of appearance, and it seemed a little bit embarrassing that only we were taken out (of the line to board).”
Notwithstanding the biased reporting of the media, Homeland Security did a great job in detecting this terrorist family.
