Baklava fears on US planes

"Two men were temporarily blocked from boarding a Southwest flight in Chicago last week when a passenger became nervous after overhearing them speak in Arabic. Maher Khalil and Anas Ayyad were carrying a small box of Baklava when the passenger at the gate became suspicious. After their small box of sweets was inspected, the discrimination continued on board the plane. The two men claimed they opened the box and began sharing the baklava with other passengers."
