El Al Hijack

Whoa. Looks like an Israeli-Arab tried to hijack an El Al plane bound for Istanbul from Tel Aviv. El Al is Israel’s major airline. Security guards on the plane overpowered the hijacker as he tried to storm the cockpit. Major news networks are all over it, but there’s nothing big on the web as of now. That’ll probably change in a few minutes.

    You’d have to be insane to try to hijack El Al planes. Their marshals are armed to the teeth and put any “sky-marshals” in the States to shame. There’s a perfectly good reason why there’s only been one successful hijacking of an El Al flight. It’s because it’s incredibly difficult.
