This makes it extremely likely that this was a case of Sudden Jihad Syndrome, but this is how the mainstream media is spinning it: “It is understood Captain Zaharie had personal issues; having recently separated from his wife – whom he had children with. It is thought his relationship with another woman was also on the rocks.” But Captain Zaharie is not the only man, or the only pilot, to have relationship troubles, yet other pilots with troubled marriages and messy personal lives don’t take their airliners hundreds of miles off course and then (apparently) down them.
It is more likely that what happened to the flight had to do with the fact that Captain Zaharie was a “fanatical” follower of Malaysian politician Anwar Ibrahim: “Anwar Ibrahim is a Malaysian politician and leader of the opposition PKE Party (People’s Justice Party). Ibrahim was a Deputy Prime Minister in Malaysia under Mahathir bin Mohamad but following increasingly discord between the two men, Ibrahim was accused and convicted of sodomy in 1998 and was jailed until the verdict was over turned in 2004 and he was released from prison. He was re-arrested on the same charges in 2008 but acquitted in 2012 after a two-year trial. Ibrahim has many known ties to the global U.S Muslim Brotherhood including helping to found the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) where he currently serves as a director, serving as a trustee for the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) during the 1970′s and early 1980′s, and appearances at numerous Brotherhood-linked conferences. In 2011, he was a participant in the 2011 U.S.-Islamic World Forum, held in the US for the first time and which included a large number of individuals tied to the Global Muslim Brotherhood as well as their supporters. Media coverage on Ibrahim generally ignores this history which may be explained by a 2008 article from the Malaysian media on how Ibrahim has reinvented himself.”
“Flight MH370: Terrorism expert backs theory of pilot suicide flight,” New Zealand Herald, March 27, 2014:
It is understood Captain Zaharie had personal issues.
A New Zealand criminologist has come out in support of a theory that the captain of the missing Malaysia Airlines aircraft was on a suicide mission.
University of Canterbury Professor Greg Newbold, who lectures on terrorism, said the only person who could have changed MH370’s computerised flight plan and switched off its electronics was someone who was highly experienced.
That person, he acknowledged, could only have been the pilot, Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah – a man with 30 years’ flying experience.
His co-pilot on the March 8 flight, 27-year-old Fariq Abdul Hamid, was fairly inexperienced; having only been on his sixth flight in the cockpit and the first time as an unaided pilot.
“We know that after changing course, the aircraft flew briefly above its maximum ceiling. If the pilot had then depressurised the aircraft, all passengers and the crew – including the pilot – would have lost consciousness within a few minutes,” Professor Newbold said.
“From here, the re-computerised flight plan would have allowed the plane to fly itself at a predetermined altitude and course until it eventually ran out of fuel and crashed.
“If this is correct, it would explain why no one on board apparently attempted to raise the alarm using a cellphone.”
Professor Newbold’s comments come after a Herald story, yesterday, of an exclusive interview with one of Captain Zaharie’s closest friends, who is a pilot himself.
The man, who did not want to be named for fear of repercussions, said the captain was in no state of mind to be flying a Boeing 777.
It is understood Captain Zaharie had personal issues; having recently separated from his wife – whom he had children with. It is thought his relationship with another woman was also on the rocks.
The man said his old friend’s world was crumbling and felt the captain had taken MH370 on a “last joyride”.
