Walid Shoebat, a conservative activist and the father of unhinged anti-gay vlogger Theodore Shoebat, joined One America News Network’s Graham Ledger yesterday to discuss his completely evidence-free theory that the missing Malaysia Airlines flight and the Egypt Air flight that crashed en route from Paris to Cairo last week were both taken down by Muslim pilots intent on being martyrs to the faith.
This all led Ledger to ask Shoebat if he would “get on a small airliner that’s based out of the Middle East.”
Shoebat responded that even beyond that, he quit all air travel two years ago because you can never know if the pilot of your plane will be Muslim.
“I stopped flying even in the U.S. two years ago,” he said. “I completely — I flew 3,000 flights to get my message out in this country. Finally I realized, I get into an airline where I see 20 Yemeni students, it’s terrifying. I do not know if the pilot is Muslim or not.”
He added that once a border patrol agent on the Mexican border “thought I was a Muslim because my name is Muslim and he welcomed me in an Islamic way” and let him back into the country without checking his luggage.
