It has been documented that many Muslims seem to go on minding their own business, then spontaneously explode (no pun intended) into fits of jihadi rage. Canadian Muslim Dogan Akkaya, whose name suggests a Turkish background, experienced one such uncontrollable episode – aboard an airplane, no less. Passengers and airplane crew quickly intervened, but did Akkaya know something more than what he let on?
“You will hear ‘bang bang’ and everyone is going to die,” Akkaya told one of the flight attendants during his screaming frenzy. He spoke of mass murder and jihad terror attacks. Everyone on board knew they had made a mistake getting on a plane with a Muslim. The plane turned around and landed back in Montreal, and Akkaya was arrested.
Why did Akkaya issue the threats he did? What kind of plot(s) is he aware of? Terrorist groups are still at large, and still operating on Canadian soil. It’s quite possible that an investigation into Akkaya’s connections will uncover what he was truly up to. In the meantime, however, Akkaya is facing up to 10 years behind bars, where a different kind of “bang bang” will be in store for him.
