The Muslim who wanted Coke Zero

May 29, 2015

If you look at Tahera Ahmad’s Facebook profile photo on the right, you will be struck by how attractive a person can appear on the outside while being riddled with ugliness inside.

The source of the bitterness and rage that make people invent bogus hate crimes is probably an unsolvable mystery but one thing seems like simple common sense: if your job title requires bitterness and rage, then you are more likely to show it.  Remember Henry Louis Gates, the Director of the W.E.B. DuBois Institute for African American Research?  With a job title like that, you are practically required to have a problem with white people.

And what about CAIR, the Council on American–Islamic Relations?  If the world ever decides there is no problem with relations between Americans and Muslims, that’ll be the end of CAIR, won’t it?  So guess how much effort they put into improving relations.

Tahera Ahmad’s job title at Northwestern University in Chicago is Director of Interfaith Engagement, which means her position is only pertinent while there is a perceived problem with the current level of engagement between faiths.  No problem, no need for a director to solve the problem, you see?

Nobody at any university is going to hire a “Director of Engagement” between 18-year-old boys and 18-year-old girls, for example, or between fraternity brothers and beer, or between nerds and Star Trek.  They’re all engaging just fine.

So if Tahera Ahmad seems to want the world thinking people are mean to Muslims, and insulting them, and committing hate crimes against them, it’s probably just to enhance her job security.  Maybe that’s why she jumped on Facebook while still 30,000 feet in the air aboard a United flight, May 29, 2015, to tell her tale about discrimination and hatred toward Muslims.

Ludicrous as it sounds, the whole thing was about a can of Coke.  Tahera asked the flight attendant for a Coke Zero and the flight attendant gave her a Diet Coke.  The horror.  Tahera flipped her lid and demanded a Coke Zero but since those airline carts are not Walmart-sized the flight attendant did not have a full Coke Zero and could only give her half of a can.

Here is how Tahera described what happened:
“I am sitting on a United airlines flight in the air 30,000ft above and I am in tears of humiliation from discrimination.  The flight attendant asked me what I would like to drink and I requested a can of diet coke.  She brought me a can that was open so I requested an unopened can due to hygienic reasons.  She said no one has consumed from the drink, but I requested an unopened can.  She responded, ‘Well I’m sorry I just can’t give you an unopened can so no diet coke for you.’  She then brought the man sitting next to me a can of UNOPENED beer.  So I asked her again why she refused to give me an UNOPENED can of diet coke.  She said, ‘We are unauthorized to give unopened cans to people because they may use it as a WEAPON on the plane.’  So I told her that she was clearly discriminating against me because she gave the man next to me an unopened can of beer.  She looked at his can, quickly grabbed it and opened it and said, ‘it’s so you don’t use it as a weapon.’  Apphauled at her behavior I asked people around me if they witnessed this discriminatory and disgusting behavior and the man sitting in an aisle across from me yelled out to me, ‘you Moslem, you need to shut the F** up.’  I said, ‘what?!’  He then leaned over from his seat, looked me straight in the eyes and said, ‘yes you know you would use it as a WEAPON so shut the f**k up.’  I felt the hate in his voice and his raging eyes.  I can’t help but cry on this plane because I thought people would defend me and say something.  Some people just shook their heads in dismay.”
Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it?  It sounds like a story a ten-year-old would make up, which gives you some idea of the intellectual level of Ms. Ahmad.  After she had made herself temporarily famous as a victim, gotten her name into all the newspapers, and been interviewed on various TV news shows—and after United had apologized for the misunderstanding and promised to discipline the poor flight attendant—we started to hear from her fellow passengers on that flight.  They told a completely different story.

Here is what one of them said:
“I was actually on this flight on Friday evening from ORD to DCA.  I have been a reader of this forum for a long time but seeing this all over the news made me sign up so I could tell you what really happened here and hopefully stop this liar in her tracks.  I was sitting close enough to her to hear everything that was said.  The flight attendant came up to the lady (I believe she even took her order first in the entire cabin as she was seated in the bulkhead 7d) and took her order.  She ordered a coke zero and a hot green tea with a Splenda.  The flight attendant handed her a full diet coke with a cup on top and then told her that the green tea would take a few minutes and she would get it to her ASAP.  The lady said very rudely and condescending to the FA that she ordered a coke zero and basically pushed the soda back to the flight attendant.  The FA said she was sorry and attempted to find a coke zero for her (which she did not have many of) and told her that she could only give her a portion of the can not the full can.  This is when the lady in question started to freak out and told the FA ‘What do you think I will use this as a weapon?!  Why can’t I have the whole can?  I think you are discriminating against me.  I need your name....’  The lady just kept yelling to her ‘I need your name... I am being discriminated against.’  This is when a few passengers told her to calm down and one guy told her to ‘shut her mouth and she is being ridiculous over a can of coke.’  No one ever said anything anti-Muslim to her at all.  She was the one who started screaming discrimination when she did not get what she wanted.  The FA asked her numerous times if she would like anything else when the lady just basically pushed her away with a hand in her face.  The lady then got onto her phone with her credit card and paid for the internet so she could start spinning this story on social media and she was never in tears.  This person is a liar plain and simple and is just pulling the discrimination card.”
And here is what another of her fellow passengers said:
“Don’t believe this woman.  My wife and I were on this flight.  She was very rude and because she couldn’t get a whole can of pop she flipped out and started pulling the discrimination card.  Pathetic.  I have since tried to contact the media and not one has gotten back to me to hear my side of the story.  Just goes to show many media only care about controversy instead of factual information.”
You be the judge of who’s telling the truth.  Based on the fact that Tahera Ahmad is hereby featured on a website called, our vote is no secret.
