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

Cop says Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should be shot following Trump’s racist targeting of The Squad
Following racist attacks on members of The Squad by President Donald Trump and his supporters, a police officer in Louisiana reportedly said that one of the congresswomen of color should be shot.
Trump has been lashing out at the four first-term congresswomen, who include Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.
Internet piles on ABC reporter for lavishing praise on Trump for allowing press to ask questions
ABC News reporter Kyra Phillips on Saturday heaped praise on President Donald Trump for his treatment of the press.
Despite the White House no longer holding daily press briefings, Phillips praised the "access" she receives from the administration.
"No matter what your politics are, I have to say that I appreciate the access ?Trump? gives us on a regular basis and the ability to ask any question," she said.
She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.
‘Trump wants to start a race war’: Ex-advisor alleges his campaign planned ‘Send her Back’ chants
President Donald Trump is attempting to start a race war in America, a long-time advisor declared on MSNBC on Saturday evening.
Omarosa Manigault Newman was interviewed by Donny Deutsch on "Saturday Night Politics."
"You said could it happen here? It is happening here," Newman told Deutsch.
"As a woman of color watching him attack those four women, it made it very clear that Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our democracy," she said.
"And everyone has been kind of tiptoeing what this actually is. Donald Trump wants to start a race war in this country and it started at that rally — it started with the tweets," she said.
