Eddie Bryant is a disabled Iraq war veteran who has the word ‘Infidel’ tattooed on his leg. You would think Muslims would appreciate his being so open. When it came to Bryant, they didn’t have to guess. The least they could do would be to tell him thank you.
Apparently, that’s not how several Qatari Muslim soldiers took it (wait, Qatari soldiers on U.S. soil?). While all parties involved were skydiving at Skydive Lake Wales in Florida, the Muslims complained to management about Bryant’s transparency and well, guess what happened.
As for his tattoo, Bryant writes: “The Muslim’s from Qatar saw that tattoo and complained to the drop-zone. Once they did so I was called to the back office and asked to cover it up by the owner.”
When asked in an email exchange how he was aware that the individuals in question were soldiers from Qatar, Bryant replied that a Skydive Lake Wales official informed him of this and that their skydiving equipment had the name of the country on it.
Skydive Lake Wales had not yet responded to a request for information at the time of publishing.
Bryant adds that he was offered duct tape to cover it and that he refused, saying it was nothing more than a tattoo saying “I am not a Muslim.” After a short time, he was asked to leave.
By far and away, if this is even a partially correct account, the dhimmi manager who asked Bryant to leave is beyond shameful and should not treat an American war hero with such disrespect while caving to the whims of… Qatari Muslim soldiers?! In America?!
If you’d like to contact Skydive Lake Wales to request that Bryant be allowed to return with his tattoo on full display, here is their website.
