Woman Allegedly Accuses Man With Arabic Surname Of Terrorist Plane Threat After He Ends 4-Day Fling

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A 45-year-old Temple City woman is accused of providing false information to an airline in order to take revenge on a male passenger with whom she had a four-day fling.

Lizet Sariol  is expected to plead guilty Tuesday in a federal court.

She is charged with a single felony count of conveying false and misleading information, specifically, implying that a United Airlines flight was endangered, according to a signed plea agreement filed Thursday in Los Angeles federal court.

The charge stems from an anonymous call Sariol reportedly placed Sept. 25 to a United Airlines call center in Detroit. It is alleged that she said a Frenchman and his friends, all of whom have Arabic surnames, posed an unspecified threat to a plane set to depart that day from Los Angeles International Airport to Las Vegas and then on to Paris, according to court papers.

FBI agents were dispatched to LAX to intercept the group.

During questioning, the Frenchman, Adnen Mansouri, said he expected to be detained by airport authorities because he was being “harassed” by Sariol, with whom he had a four-night affair, according to court papers.

Mansouri said he had broken off the relationship  just hours before arriving at LAX.

The Frenchman and his friend, Salim Oumahdi, told FBI Special Agent David Gates they had received threatening texts and Facebook postings from the woman for hours, Gates wrote in an affidavit.

Mansouri said he believed Sariol was angry because he “un-friended” her on Facebook, the affidavit states.

One text Sariol allegedly sent said, “Don’t even try to get on the plane (I) called the fbi Sucks to be all of you hope you all have good attorneys,” according to court papers.

Investigators who interviewed Sariol in early October said she “freaked out” when her ex-lover kicked her out of the Beverly Hills house where he was staying the night before he was due to fly back to France.

“I’m very sorry,” Sariol told the FBI interviewer, according to the charging document.

Sariol faces up to five years in prison or probation, a three-year period of supervised release and a possible fine of $250,000, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

She is scheduled to plead guilty Tuesday before U.S. District Judge John F. Walter, who will set a sentencing date.

    Arabs have flings? ???

    • Fred

      You are thinking of only the conservative – really untra-conservative – Arabs, or probably Muslims. You could say the same thing of ultra-orthodox Christians, we call them Fundamentalists. Arabs run the gamut of passions and poisons like any other. There are Christian, Muslimn, atheist, Communist, converted-to-Budhism, you-name-it Arabs.

      • RalphSchmalph

        @Samson An example of Ultra -orthodox Christians are the Amish and the Mennonites (Old Order). Please note that these groups are peace-loving and hard working people who may “shun” members of their faith for behavior they don’t agree with but certainly don’t mutilate, stone or otherwise murder their co-religionists or anyone else. They also don’t fly planes into buildings.

      • Samson

        Fred? “ultra-orthodox” Christian? What the heck is that? Where are they and where do they go to church? “Fundamentalists?” I think you might be a little confused by some of the terms. And, to then equate “Fundamentalists” with “probably Muslims.” Don’t you think that’s a little beyond the pale? I mean, when’s the last time Christian “Fundamentalists” committed mass murder, declared a “Fatwa” or stoned someone to death for being raped?

      • Dominic Carabello

        EARTH TO FRED:

        You missed it by a MILE, dude…

        Ultra-conservative Christians PEACEFULLY oppose gay marriage…Ultra-conservative Muslims demand the DEATH PENALTY, just for being GAY. That is only one example of MANY…

      • Cali Cal

        Hey Dominic, Fred is 1000% right. Its funny how we seem to forget about whackos like David Koresh, Timoithy McVeigh, and Jim Jones of the infamous People’s temple. Oh and I know this happened hundreds of years ago but the Caltholic church burned thousands of Jews as heretics, the Puritans burned teenaged girls as witches. Shall I continue?

    • Alex Seredin

      Most Americans have no idea about the outside world. They only know the rumors that are spread against Arabs, that is all. Of course there are people who disobey the Quranic laws. Even Quran itself states “THERE IS NO COMPULSION IN RELIGION”

      • JohnD

        Well Alex, congratulations for being a lying ass. How about the requirement that muslims kill non beleivers? Moron.

      • Dominic Carabello

        @Alex Seredin

        Yeah, but that verse comes right between verses about KILLING ‘INFIDELS’…you Islamic apologists are great at CHERRY-PICKING the Quran.

      • Raymond

        “Most Americans have no idea about the outside world. They only know the rumors that are spread against Arabs, that is all.” Who are spreading these “Rumors,” Alex Seredin? Care to explain???? Actually, I think that most Americans just want to live their own lives & really don’t care about the rest of the World or what the World thinks about them.

      Learn the difference between Arab and Muslim.

      • Dominic Carabello

        Great point Larz…Arabic men treat their women like CATTLE. Arabic MUSLIM men treat them like DOGS, which are ‘unclean’ under Sharia Law.

        Sharia Law says that just to PROVE accusations of RAPE a Muslim woman MUST have no less than FOUR MALE WITNESSES.

      • John Moser

        Other than the stonings and beheadings.

    • Alpha Kenny Juan

      Arabs are humans just like everyone else, Charlie. Wanna see Arabs having flings? Visit Beirut or Jounieh, Lebanon, in the summer when the towns are filled with young Saudi, Kuwaiti and other Gulf-State young men. Those cities have “Super Night Clubs” packed with Eastern-European women. People are people and they all have the same desires.

      • charlie

        I thought you can’t have porn, alcohol, or even clothes that shows skins, think you get stone to death over there. Is that why they have a 4 days fling here ???

      • cooldude9366

        Please share with us where you read that (or what you’re smokn’). Question for you. Do you know what the penalty is for trying to convert someone to Christianity in ANY Islamic state? Hint: You could lose your head over this one.

      • JohnD

        You’re right Alpha. Why don’t we all go aout this afternoon and blow up some buildings or airplanes and then cut some peoples heads off. Yeah, people all have the same desires. Sure they do.

        @Japes Macfarland
        “Palestinian citizens of Israel are more free than any other Arab in any other country in the entire ME”
        Do you really believe that? For the love of God, you are not allowed to even try to convert people to Christianity in Israel. And as American congress critters were warned about saying Merry Christmas in correspondence with their constituents, Iranian Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani publicly stated Merry Christmas to all the Christians in Iran and the rest of the world.

      • susan See

        Not Arabs. French.

      • Japes Macfarland

        What I find Ironic, is that the one place where Arabs are more free, have more civil rights, etc. in the entire Middle East is Israel.
        (For example, Palestinian citizens of Israel are more free than any other Arab in any other country in the entire ME.)

    • John Rory Jr.

      Wow, she should be charged with the same crime for falsely accusing him, she should also be billed for all the money she wasted.

      This “terrorism” non-sense has gone too far, it is almost mathematically impossible to be killed by terrorists in the United States. You have a higher probability being killed by a champagne cork… End this nonsense, we can’t afford it, no more TSA. Big government waste!

      • tim

        you are a useless idiot. Just stick head your head in the sand. There is nothing to see here.

  • Raymond

    Accuses the Man because he “Un-Friended Her” on Facebook???? (Shaking My Head) The Woman is in need of severe Psychiatric Help!!!!

    • Mark Neil

      But this isn’t the first woman in the last month to make such a call in LA in the last two weeks ( http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2011/12/22/marital-woes-leads-lynwood-woman-to-call-in-false-bomb-threat-at-lax/ ). False allegations are made quite frequently for the purpose of revenge, these women should have stuck with the tried and true rape and domestic violence accusations. Perhaps the recent increase in police actually laying “filing a false report” charges encoraged them to find new accusations?

      • Mark Neil

        Isn’t it you who are making excuses for these women when you claim it is due to severe psychological issues? You are letting her off the hook by attributing it to a mental issue she had no control over. Do you offer men who do bad things, such as rape and shootings, the same consideration? “Oh, he must have been psychologically disturbed”, it’s not that he was just a bad person. these women were just being selfish, entitled monsters. Any mental health issues are irrelevant.

      • Raymond

        I’d like to just ask You , Mark. Where are You getting these “quotes” that you’re attributing to me (“Oh, he must have been psychologically disturbed”)? I’ve reviewed everything that I’ve writtened on the Story & the back & forth Conversations that You & I have had. I don’t see ANYWHERE that I’ve Commented & Written such things! Are you sure that You’re responding to the “Right Person” or are you (let’s say) in “Your Right Mind?” Or are you just bored & just want to argue? Just Wondering!

      • Mark neil

        Missed my point. I wasn’t suggesting you said this was the first woman to do this, I was trying to point out this isn’t a “severe psychiatric” Issue. It is bad behavior that is happening more and more (twice in as many weeks). To dismiss it as severe psychological issues is to minimize these women’s responsibility for their actions.

      • Raymond

        I don’t particularily care what you say or not. For ANY WOMAN to make a “Fales Report” just for the sake of Revenge, has to taken serouisly. I do SERIOUSLY question her Judgement & does call into question Her Mental State. That goes for ANY OTHER Woman that makes a False Report. Making a “False Reprt” is very Serious & that onl;y thing that it accomplishes is destroying People’s Lives. The only thing that You’re doign is making excuses & letting her (As I have said before) “Off The HooK!” If you’re going to continue doing that, You better seriously consider becoming a Defense Attorney!

      • Raymond

        First you’re telling me that I’m blaming the Victim Now, you’re saying that I’m saying that this is the frist instance of a “False Rape” allegation. Man, I’ve looked through My orginial Comment & can’t find where I said anything to those two points. Now, your putting words in My Mouth? Great Going, Mark Neil! What do you do for an encore?

  • Strider

    I guess we now know who the real terrorist is, don’t we?

      No disrespect to Friedrich Nietzsche, but GOD doesn’t make mistakes. People do! It’s so easy to blame GOD when actually People bring it on themselves. The only advice that I can give Adnen Mansouri is to be careful who you “Friend” on Facebook & then have a four-night Affair with!

        Yea chech, you’re a real enlightened mind believing that you either magically appeared from nothingness or are a self creating man god who made himself forget his own self creation.

        Sounds real grown up and rational bud!

        You might want to try replying to chech down on his comment below. I jusy missed that myself. Thank You for the Support, Jacob! Happy New Year!

      • Mark Neil

        Victim blaming, are we? This is no different that telling a rape victim she should have been more careful who she was drinking with.

      • Raymond

        I’m sorry, I wasn’t blaming the Victim! Just offering advice. I guess that You can’t tell the difference, Mark Neil!!!! Next time, You might want to ask before You make yourself a Fool!

      • Joe

        So Jacob if we absolutely must have been created by god who created god? To quote you did god “magically appeared from nothingness or are a self creating man god who made himself forget his own self creation”

        Religion is a nasty drug that causes humans to lose their intellect

  • Mike M

    haha…hope you have a good attorney Lizet

  • george

    Wow! The new fake-rape charge!

    • Mark neil

      Police have actually started laying “filing a false report” charges, they had to come up with something new.

  • Eric P Turner

    lock her up to many woman using courts to get pay back in this country im a victim of that and it really can ruin your life took me two years to restore my life after an exgf decided she wanted to file false claims cause i dumped her for cheating on me and shame on the courts for letting it happen the real kicker is she go in no trouble for doing it to me. im in the prosses of suing her.

    • RalphSchmalph

      Worse than “identity theft”. Call it “character theft” and prosecute them under the felony of perjury not simply “filing a false police report”.

  • Mike Alright

    If we just had more unappreciated special rights laws for women, this would not happen RIGHT?

  • Melissa in NorCal

    Well, he definately chose poorly which kafir he “possessed in his right hand”. ;) Based on her response, she must have been fun in the sack. Most crazy psycho chicks are. ;)

    • chech

      That’s exactly what I was thinking

      • Raymond

        chech, Believe what You want & I’ll believe in what I want. You don’t like it, “Too Bad!” Anyway, no one ask for Your opinion anyway!!!!

  • holly

    He probably acted like a snake, made her believe she made him feel something special, etc, then tossed her like a piece of garbage. Muslim men consider Western women to be not worthy of being treated like human beings. Her response after a 4 day affair is definitely overkill. I know women who have been involved with Iranian men for a couple of years and their brains were hamburger when they finished with them.

    • Meredith

      You clearly have no idea what you’re talking about. There are men who are pigs in every culture and every religious group. To say that one is more “like a snake”, as you said, is a bigoted and unintelligent remark.

      • Dominic Carabello

        You clearly have never dated any Arabic/Muslim men or ever been to an Arabic/Muslim country…they treat THEIR OWN women like cattle…why would an ‘infidel’ ever expect to be treated any better?

      • Mark neil

        Dmonic, you clearly didn’t read the article, it was a 4 night affair, not any kind of dating relationship. This was no different then any other pair having a fling while on vacation. To blame this guy for her response is to blame a woman of being raped because she got drunk (IE, perhaps it wasn’t the best of behavior, but that’s no excuse.)

    • PowerPC

      What did she expect after putting out to a foreigner during a four day affair? Four days!! If you act like a prostitute perhaps you get treated like one. What did she want, sex for a few days or a long term relationship? The actions a woman takes are completely different for the two. If she wants a fling go for it. If she wanted a relationship perhaps she should not have went to bed with a foreigner at the first chance she had. She got herself into the situation, tried to get the man in trouble for dumping her and now she is standing trial and sentencing for being stupid. I hope she has a good lawyer!

      • Daisy

        I hope his name Never gets erased from the terrorist list.

      • Atom&Yves

        I hope her lawyer sucks.

  • Jon Carry

    I am just surprised that he didn’t end the relationship in the traditional manner: cut her head off with a rusty knife.

    • Spanky

      What about stoning her for having sex outside of marriage?

  • Eagle in NYC

    Greed is a powerful vice and no one knows how to exploit it more than a follower of Satan’s 7th Century Death Cult.

    • Dominic Carabello

      Great point amigo…the good news is that its looking more & more like your dreaded Ground Zero mosque building project in NYC is DEAD IN THE WATER. They were supposed to start ground-breaking on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 (which was last September) but they are still meeting in that dilapidated old building they have been in all along.

  • jharper

    Considering a grouop headed by Muslims trains TSA agents, I’m surprised they were checked out.

  • Jigsaw

    So it seems like none in the US had a 4day fling followed by an abrupt finale !.
    The guy sucks at poker.
    I’d call and raise.
    Sue the poor thing to the fullest extent of the law.

  • George

    in all likely hood, this doosh “french man” probably lied and tricked his way into her pants, then dumped her when his time here was up.

    put him in jail as well for being a doosh.

    • John

      Oh, for the love of Christ. It’s 2012 and a woman is somehow a victim even if she WANTS sex? If she’s crazy enough to call in a threat like this, which is beyond over the top, then maybe, just maybe, she started acting a little nutty during those four days he was with her.

    • Dominic Carabello

      Arabic/Muslim men are NOTORIOUS for treating their OWN WOMEN like cattle…why should a mere ‘infidel’ like this woman expect any better?

  • andyandersonusa

    Doesn’t anyone recall that the right to vote for women was delayed for a long time, because of the known propensity of women to lie in order to get even with a man? It now affects men daily who are falsely accused because women are held to a lower standard in a court of law.
