Is It Any Wonder

Sunday, August 20, 2006

No, really, until people have reasonable confidence in airport security being, you know, real instead of "correct" this sort of thing is going to continue to happen:

The trouble in Malaga flared last Wednesday as two British citizens in their 20s waited in the departure lounge to board the pre-dawn flight and were heard talking what passengers took to be Arabic. Worries spread after a female passenger said she had heard something that alarmed her.

Passengers noticed that, despite the heat, the pair were wearing leather jackets and thick jumpers and were regularly checking their watches.


Oh, sorry, did the MSM miss that story in your neck of the woods? I'll give you a hint - the headline was Mutiny as passengers refuse to fly until Asians are removed. (FYI, Asian=Arab, Indian, Pakistani, etc to a Brit.) You can read the story, but basically there was a relatively polite mutiny (the British are still polite in groups) on an A320 going from Malaga to Manchester.

So here is my take: if that plane had been going from Tel Aviv to Manchester there would have been no problem whatsoever. That is because El Al security is serious and ours is not.

Let's hope we get serious too.
