It`s a Donald Trump book. Here
Click "Features" and remember, it`s chapter 6.

PS: those arguing different color seats, it`s called white balance. Your camera automatically does it. For example, take a picture with the flash then without: your skin will MAGICALLY change color.

@Angilion, yes, there are some Muslims that wear turbans. The man in the picture, however, is wearing a Sikh style of turban, called a dastar.

Actually, Muslims can wear that kind of turban too. However, they have to wear a kufi underneath. My friend does that.

Sikhs can do some pretty Sikh poo too. But they didn`t cause 9/11.

when people make accounts on websies, they suddently have to share their politically correct opinions.

If you didnt have a voice, you would just either laugh of the joke, laugh of the idea of the joke, laugh at the attempt to make a joke, or dissown the joke. but what people are doing here is just annoying

Thanks for the extra info. I wouldn`t know enough to tell different styles of turbans apart.

Although the few Sikhs I`ve met were wearing a much more substantial-looking turban, a little raised around the outside. Different styles of turban allowed for Sikhs? They had much more hair than this guy?

Oddly enough, I first came across it through health and safety, not religion. It was a bit of an issue because Sikhs demanded (and received) another special exemption from the laws that everyone else in the UK has to obey.

Ok, he is Sikh, and those are two different aircraft. First and second pics are of a small CRJ/Bombardier, third and fourth would be a newer Boeing plane.

Terrible wording to my last comment (Sentence 5), to be clear, im very neutral on the subject personally, but I have no ill will towards muslims. I was attempting to say, Those who blame all Muslims, and those who blame all white people (For the specific transgressions) are retarded.

@Zombunny, I wouldnt feel that way, being a pasty white boy myself. But its a common thought that is echoed by many people in this country and its never addressed. The point is how ass backwards everything is. Generally, those quickest to defend the muslim community are the same people who say white people are to blame for slavery. I think that in both cases, theyre drating retarded, but at least the 9/11 attacks are recent. Not all Muslims did it, but it was carried out by muslims, that kind of violence, loss, death, and anger isnt something people easily shake. Ask the palestinians how they feel about Jews, not just Israeli Jews, but all Jews.

In the interest of ridiculous accusations, while Sikhs aren`t the same as Muslims, we all learned from the classic Star Trek episode, "The Space Seed" that Sikhs were great warriors, and Khan was a Sikh, and look at all the trouble HE caused. KHAAAAAANNNNNNNN!!!!! That, and the guy in the photo has an empty glass.

How can you tell he is a Sikh? He may have uncut hair or just wearing a turban. I don`t see a bracelet, nor the sacred bloomers, nor do I see a dagger. Sikh`s are only required to wear the bracelet though, still I don`t see a bracelet.

CrakrJak, good man.

My opinion - This is blatant race baiting, and speaks - more than anything - to common American ignorance of the world around them. Sikhs have nothing to do with Islam, but they are (generally) brown skinned and wear turbans for religious reasons. My liberal sympathies feel for the Sikhs and other persons of Indian and east-asian origin that got dirty looks from Americans post 9/11, despite having lived in the U.S. for decades, paid taxes, gone to school, worked, ran businesses, etc. etc.

Maybe this serves a good purpose though. Maybe someone who had an initial negative reaction will review their prejudices when they read the comments.

Some Muslims do wear turbans, so wearing a turban isn`t proof that he isn`t a Muslim.

The changes between the first picture and the other two are proof that this is fake, though. The man in the first photo could have been reading anything.

No doubt shopped up by some typical FoxNews-watching, brainless, idiot, fear-mongering, Sarah Palin-worshipping, conservative dill-weed with too much time on his hands (what else is he going to do? Read the Bible? Polish his many semi-automatic weapons?) to recognize that, a) this guy is Sikh, and, b) the top shot and those that follow are obviously from different cameras on different planes.

But, hey, otherwise? Great job!

"he`s a Sikhs...ancient sect of warrior Indians...not Arab. most people are such idiots..."

I was actually thinking "OMG a Turban, he`s probably reading a How-To Guide to making bombs out of TSA approved materials."

Just kidding, I was actually thinking "Who the drat takes pictures of somebody`s book they`re reading on a plane?"

And then I tried to see if it was fake.

It is.

1. Look at the wall, it looks like a hard white plastic. Zoomed in, it`s a cloth holey fabric.

That`s all I got. However.

Remembering September 11th, 2001 is the name of the chapter, not the book, therefore, it may still be a How-To Guide to making bombs out of TSA approved materials, and the book points out what was done correctly on Sept 11th...it even reads "If you never give up, You`ll be able to give back"...

But that is completely ignorant and stupid...Ignore my comment.

Definitely Sikh. The orange colour of the turban is very signifant; a lot of them wear it around vaisakhi.

Volsunga, he looks rather young - which would be why his beard isn`t that long. Perhaps, too, he had a surgery in the last year and for that they have to shave the beard (in order to get a good seal for the endotracheal anesthesia). As for his hair, turbans can be incredibly deceiving - big ones don`t always mean he has a lot of hair, and small ones don`t mean he doesn`t have a lot.

But, this man is DEFINITELY Sikh, Northern Indian, from the Punjab region.

(And he could be Sikh, that`s actually where I`d put my money, but it`s not necessarily the case. Volsunga makes a good point, but he could still have only been taking it seriously more recently).

Volsunga: Good catch on finding the book when I couldn`t find it. It`s not often I`m ninja`d when I get the head start.
