Democracy does not seem to be a symbol of the western world anymore. The majority logic is simple: let us be non-democratic, but stay alive than vice versa. The people with the clearly visible Arabic appearance suffer most. 3 Arab-looking men had to leave the airplane because their manners and behavior seemed suspicious to someone. The chief of the plane’s crew was very anxious about the fact that all 3 men purchased the tickets just several minutes before the flight. In the words from the “victims” of discrimination, such tickets were the cheapest, so why not buying them that way? The plane was to fly from Stockholm to the Canaries and there were no problems with registration and boarding, Reuters said. However, before the plane took off the crew’s chief decided to ask the Arab men to leave the plane after some passengers started expressing their uneasiness about “their strange behavior.” The story ended up with a scandal: the ousted Arab men threatened to submit a claim to the department for discrimination, but the public and the police were on the side of the chief of the crew.
