    Careful..this may be a "trial run"to test the emergency response system at BG by the muslim enemy.

  2. What an ingenious way to deliver a nuclear bomb into Israel! I am sure that Israel can defect in advance before the plane lands. If not, … I don't want to think of the possibility.

  3. Lori Fajnsod Maslow says:

    As if an ElAl jet would be given the same courtesy in another country. I'd be really careful and agree that this could be a 'test run'.

  4. You are right, it can in US or EU happen.

  5. We always do for them,they try to kill us and the world blames us all the time
