A United Airlines pilot was “removed from service” after being caught expressing support for the Hamas terror group’s October 7 massacre in Israel — the deadliest against Jewish people since the Nazi Holocaust — which saw the torture, rape, execution, immolation, and abduction of hundreds of Israelis, mostly civilians.
On the day of the massacre, which left over 1,200 dead and more than 240 taken hostage, United Airlines pilot Ibrahim R Mossallam published a post on Facebook describing the attacks — which included the burning of babies alive — as “resistance by brave people.”

“For all my friends here in FB land with Questions/Thoughts/Assumptions/Critique about whats transpiring in Palestine, currently in response to the Zionist occupation, please work on expanding your media literacy,” he reportedly wrote after the attacks came to light.
Claiming mass media in the U.S. is “heavily politicized and skewed to show a non-occupying narrative of Palestine,” Mossallam described the massacre as a “resistance by a brave people who have endured decades of occupation, oppression, humiliation, apartheid, and straight up murder.”
He also said the attack was “not unprovoked,” but a “response to this past years attacks by the Zionist regime,” as he referred readers to a site loaded with disinformation about Israel’s efforts to defend itself.
Mossallam is also listed as the board vice president of CAIR’s (Council on American-Islamic Relations) New York chapter.
Having failed to condemn the Hamas terror attack on Israel, CAIR instead offered its support on the day of the massacre in a statement expressing solidarity with the Palestinian people.
DansDeals reached out to United for comment on Monday, and was informed that the pilot “has been removed from service, with pay, while we look into this matter.”
Update: @United Tells DansDeals They Have Suspended The Pilot, With Pay, During Investigation
If Mr. Mossallam feels that the rape, torture, and kidnapping of Jews is justifiable and that all Jews are Israelis, how can he be trusted to fly any Jew safely?…

Last month, an Air Canada pilot was fired for posting offensive anti-Israel messages.
Hi @AirCanada, your pilot Mostafa Ezzo, in uniform, is glorifying the mass murder of women and children and calling for the “cleansing” of Jews. How does he still have his job? Here’s his LinkedIn, in case you have trouble tracking him down. https://t.co/4KMwHOWqae @JustinTrudeau… pic.twitter.com/HHDsUeWlIW

The matter follows Hamas’ multi-pronged October attack that saw some 3,000 terrorists burst into Israel by land, sea, and air and gun down participants at an outdoor music festival while others went door to door hunting for Jewish men, women, and children in local towns who were then subject to torture, rape, execution, immolation, and kidnapping.

The massacre, which drew parallels to scenes from the Nazi Holocaust, resulted in more than 1,200 dead inside the Jewish state, over 5,300 more wounded, and at least 241 hostages of all ages taken.
