German Traveler to Dubai Finds Himself on Flight to Tel Aviv

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

A Muslim German national on vacation traveling with Pegasus Airlines flew from Germany to Dubai Monday night, but somehow found himself landing at Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv.

The incident has never happened before – but it is extremely serious because it might have ended quite differently, with an Israeli passenger landing instead in an enemy nation.

The bearded, black-haired 30-year-old passenger first landed in Istanbul where he was to catch a connecting flight to Dubai. He transferred his luggage for the next leg of the journey, according to a report posted on the Hebrew-language Ynet site, then proceeded to make the connection to his next flight with a carry-on bag – or so he believed.

It is not clear how he passed through all security and airline inspections with his ticket, which clearly was marked with Dubai as his final destination. In fact, he remained totally unaware of the error until the on-board announcement the plane was approaching its destination in Tel Aviv.

At that point, he jumped up, completely startled, and called the flight attendant to show her his ticket. After checking it with the flight manager, she confirmed that it was “certainly a mistake, you are not on the correct flight – but this is your own problem and you will have to pay for a return flight.”

Israeli passengers seated nearby immediately intervened, speaking with the agitated passenger and with the flight attendant, insisting that it was the airline’s mistake and he did not have to pay anything at all.

Upon landing, Israeli security officials came to the plane to interview the passenger, and after confirming the error and his veracity, took him off the plane, checked his bags, and put him on a flight back to Istanbul.

Pegasus Airlines said in a statement: “The incident is under investigation, and it is believed that due to the fact that two flights were close together, it is possible that the passenger passed inspection for Dubai, but got on the wrong bus for the passenger aircraft, instead boarding that which led to the flight to Tel Aviv.”

Israel Demolishes Home of Henkins’ Hamas Killer

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

IDF soldiers and engineers demolished the family home of Hamas operative Zir Ziyad Jamal Amar on Tuesday.

The family home of Rajeb Ahmed Mohammed Aliwa, the mastermind behind the attack, has already been demolished.

Amar was one of several terrorists in the Hamas cell responsible for the murder of Neria residents Rabbi Eitam and Na’ama Henkin as they traveled a road in Samaria last October.

The couple was shot to death before the horrified eyes of their four children while driving the road between the Jewish communities of Elon Moreh and Itamar.

The children, though badly traumatized, were miraculously not physically harmed.

Israeli security forces hunted down the terrorists involved in the attack – a Hamas cell from the Shechem area – and captured them several days later.

A fund has been set up for the future care of the four orphans who survived the attack.

What is the Best Strategy for Claiming Social Security?

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

If you are an American living in Israel, how do you claim Social Security? Due to a class action lawsuit, the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) is no longer applicable to pensioners who receive bituach leumi. However, if you receive another Israeli pension, you may still be affected by WEP.

Listen for the link to a video, “Are You Getting the Social Security You Deserve,” which will tell you more about how to plan successfully for retirement and avoid Social Security mistakes.

You may also be wondering when the best time is to take Social Security. Andy Landis, author of Social Security: The Inside Story, explains why sometimes it’s a good time to take it early, but why it is usually better to wait.
What is the future for the Social Security system, and is it linked to inflation? If so, how will that affect your financial future?

US Defense Official to Court: Pollard Still Security Risk

Sunday, April 17th, 2016

National Intelligence Director James Clapper claims that recently freed Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard, who spent the past 29 years behind bars in a maximum security prison, where national security information was not readily available, presumably, nevertheless still holds information that could harm American national security, which is why he must endure the strict parole conditions imposed on him for the next five years. These include not permitting him to move to Israel, where he has been granted citizenship.

Clapper submitted a document to a New York court and the parole commission handling Pollard’s case saying that Pollard continues to hold “sensitive and confidential information classified as top secret” that could harm American national security, Israel’s Channel 10 News reported Friday.

US District Court in the Southern District of New York on Tuesday granted Pollard a hearing of his appeal against the parole conditions, which require him to wear a GPS device that violates Shabbat and holidays. Also, his computers are being monitored by the government, which Pollard says limits his employment opportunities.

Pollard’s lawyers Eliot Lauer and Jacques Semmelman wrote the judge a letter saying, “Even assuming some information [inside Pollard’s head] is still ‘classified’ as a practical matter, it is extremely unlikely that Mr. Pollard remembers, or could possibly remember, the details of 30-year old information to an extent that it could be of any value to anyone.”

The lawyers added, “There is nothing before the commission to indicate that Mr. Pollard ever memorized the documents he delivered, or that he could possibly remember any usable details 30 years later.”

French Jew Arrives as Paris Jihadist, Yells ‘Allahu Akbar!’ at Synagogue on Purim

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

Jews in Paris have been under a lot of stress over the past couple of years.

A 40-year-old Jewish man in Europe decided to lighten things up for Purim at a Paris synagogue last week, so he arrived for the Megillah reading dressed as a jihadist, yelling “Allahu Akbar!”

He was really authentic, right down to the flowing robes, beard and fake AK-47 Kalashnikov assault rifle.

The guards protecting the southeastern Paris house of worship in Vincennes were, suffice to say, shocked. Police sources told media it definitely created “a certain emotion” among the soldiers.

The incident took place at a Chabad synagogue towards the end of Purim last Thursday night.

Many Jews consider it a mitzvah (commandment) on Purim to drink to the point of no longer knowing the difference between King Ahashuerus and Haman.

The man told Le Parisien he did it to “lighten the mood.” He later admitted that perhaps he made “a big mistake.” The synagogue is located in the same community where four Jews were shot last year.

The shock passed once some of the congregants recognized the “jihadist” dressed in the flowing Arabic robes.

However, the ersatz “jihadist” was ordered to pay a visit to the police precinct on Friday.
