Atlanta police this week arrested an airline passenger whom witnesses say went on a crazed anti-Semitic rant while on the plane — and demanded that all Jews raise their hands so he could identify them.
Local news station 11 Alive reports that Atlanta police officers were asked to respond to a disturbance at the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Wednesday night.
According to police, witnesses say a 37-year-old man named David Toaff went on an anti-Semitic tirade in the middle of the flight, and demanded that all Jews on the flight raise their hands.
Toaff continued behaving erratically after the flight landed, and officers say he refused to provide them with ID when asked.
In a video captured by a passenger named Jordan Dale, Toaff can be seen ranting incoherently at officers who are trying to get him to calm down so he can be taken into custody.
“What did I do wrong?” Toaff demands to know at one point.
“You’re a Nazi!” replied an unidentified bystander off camera.
Police eventually arrested Toaff and charged him with obstruction and disorderly conduct.
Watch the video of his arrest below.
Today a man on my plane went on an anti-Semitic tirade and demanded “all Jews raise their hands” so he could “indentify them.” Later, during the arrest he protested and resisted arrest.
Incredible work by Atlanta police, I highly recommend watching the whole video. pic.twitter.com/1BQif8Cvfk

Trump is only visiting India ‘because he’s obsessed with crowd sizes’: Bollywood Star
A famous Indian filmmaker took a jab at President Trump on Twitter this Sunday, saying that his trip to India likely satiated his need for large crowd sizes after Trump addressed an audience in the Motera stadium in Ahmedabad in Gujarat, the home state of India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Indian director and producer Ram Gopal Varma started out by wondering if the money India spent by welcoming Trump would be reciprocated by Americans.
"We Indians spent thousands of crores in welcoming @realDonaldTrump," Gopal tweeted. "but will Americans spend even thousands of rupees in welcoming @narendramodi to the US? That says about America and not India ...Just saying!"
In extradition bid, US accuses Assange of endangering sources
A lawyer for the United States on Monday accused WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange of risking the lives of intelligence sources by publishing classified US government documents, as his extradition hearing opened in a London court.
Assange faces charges under the US Espionage Act for the 2010 release by his whistleblowing website of a trove of files detailing the realities of US military campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Assange spent much of the past decade holed up in Ecuador's London embassy to avoid separate legal proceedings in Sweden, but Washington is now seeking his transfer from Britain to stand trial.
‘Money hungry mannequin’ Ivanka Trump buried for her taxpayer-funded ‘field trip’ to India with her dad
Ivanka Trump was hammered on Twitter for posting pictures of her trip to India where she praised the "grandeur" of the Taj Mahal -- with herself featured front and center before it.
Donald Trump's daughter, a senior White House adviser, has taken to using her Twitter feed to promote herself (usually via photos or video clips) as she travels the world, presumably representing the United States. Monday morning's tweet was no exception, with the two pictures accompanied by, "The grandeur and beauty of the Taj Mahal is awe inspiring!" followed by emojis of the American flag and India's flag.
