DIET COKE GIRL A FAKE?: Gateway Pundit reports that Tahera Ahmad, the Muslim activist who recently cried religious discrimination against United Airlines has been called a “liar” by a commenter at FlyerTalk who says she was a witness to the ordeal:

She [Ahmad] 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. . . . This person is a liar plain and simple and is just pulling the discrimination card.

The commenter was anonymous, so there’s no way (yet) to confirm whether he/she was actually a witness to the event. But it does raise questions that should be explored as to whether this was all just a publicity stunt. The question is: With Muslim activists being so aggressive, will any of the witnesses be willing to publicly come forward and tell their story, or will they be intimidated into silence?

United has fired the flight attendant. I hope she sues them.
