Cabinet Appoints Panel to Decide on ‘Air Force One’ for Israel

JewishPress Logo

The Cabinet on Sunday appointed a committee to evaluate the possibility of purchasing a plane for the flights of the Prime Minister and President instead of the current procedure of using chartered planes.

The panel will also come up a recommendation on whether a new office-residence should be built for the Prime Minister, whose official residence near downtown Jerusalem is more than a mile away from his office in the Knesset quarter.

Finance Minister Yair Lapid said he opposes a both ideas.

“This is a national security need that will serve the State of Israel at least for several decades,” said Cabinet Secretary Avichai Mandelbli. “Moreover, today the Prime Minister’s plane lacks proper communications equipment, which the head of state for almost every advanced country has.”

    Like kennedy, what a make out machine – sex in the sky.

    The rabbi's have been considering the same option since they are now limited on frequent flyier mileage and tickets paid for with welfare checks!
