Former American Airlines mechanic Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani had claimed he disabled a navigation component in a jetliner over a labor dispute. But investigators found videos on his cell phone from ISIS promoting radical Islamic terrorism, drawing skepticism from law enforcement over his alleged motives.
Prosecutors are not treating this as terrorism, instead charging him with “willfully damaging, destroying or disabling an aircraft.” If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison.
Alani allegedly glued foam inside a tube leading from outside the plane to its air data module, which reports the speed, pitch and other critical data. This aligns with an article found on his phone which depicts the problems with Boeing MAX 737 planes that have recently crashed.
Authorities also said at least one of the ISIS videos was downloaded on Alani’s phone and sent to another person with a message that called for Allah to “use all your might and power against the Kafir,” or non-believers of Islam.
A native Iraqi who is now a US citizen, Alani, 60, was not charged with a terror-related crime. He was denied bond during the proceeding, where the feds said photos on his phone from a trip to Baghdad and Mosul showed him smiling and posing with relatives.
This was so obviously a failed terrorist plot, it’s hard to believe he’s being given the benefit of the doubt. The evidence may be circumstantial, which is why prosecutors aren’t attempting to charge him with terrorism, but it’s very compelling and all points to jihad.
His brother was a member of ISIS. He traveled to Iraq earlier this year. He had videos and articles on his phone promoting terrorism, including an article that showed why the Boeing planes kept crashing. The way he sabotaged the plane was precisely aligned with the problems referred to in the article he received. His texts demonstrate a desire to kill non-Muslims.
But this was all about overtime, at least according to the accused. I’m not buying it.
If convicted, he should be given the full sentence allowable with no opportunity for parole. They may have technical difficulties preventing them from pursuing a terrorism case, but they can put him in jail for the next two decades. When he emerges from jail in his 80s, perhaps he will no longer be a terrorism threat.

There is no reason to believe Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani, an ISIS sympathizer, sabotaged the plane’s critical navigation system over a labor dispute so he could get more overtime. He is a failed terrorist, period.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
