I’m going to guess that they are Mohammedans.
There’s a 99% probablility that I’m correct.
The other 1% probability is that they are Bill Ayers acolyte Obama voters.
I don't know - are the French playing?
The two are Palisimians, hired by the British. Time for all Western operations to simply stop hiring any Palisimians.
This attempted terrorist act by support personnel should tell J. Nappy that the pilot was right about her/TSA’a lack of oversight and searching of workers at the airport.
Terrorism stops when we nuke Medina and put Mecca on the top of the “Next Target” list.
hi Dan! Glad you are working as a reporter. Not glad it’s reuters but then maybe you’re there to turn things around. The bbc could use some help while you’re at it.

That is a racist accusation and you should apologize immediately. Ahmed and Abdulah are loyal British citizens being set up by the evil Zionist occupiers.
Yes, I know they were locals, not British.
Two British men have been arrested in connection with arson attacks on a medieval synagogue on the Greek island of Crete. The two men, who have not been named, are being held in the coastal town of Hania. A Greek man is also in custody and two Americans are being sought. Hania's Etz Hayyim synagogue has been targeted by arsonists twice this month... the [British] men are aged 23 and 33 and are nightclub waiters in the seaside town... they were arrested after a 24-year-old Greek man confessed... The British men have been offered assistance by consul staff on the island... the second attack on Saturday 16 January... caused extensive damage to the synagogue's wooden structure, its archive material and technical equipment. The Etz Hayyim synagogue, which dates back to the Middle Ages, is the only surviving Jewish monument on the island of Crete... By 1941 most of the Jews in Crete had emigrated, leaving only the Hania community of about 270 people. They were deported by Nazi invaders in 1944 and died when their ship was bombed and sunk by the Allies.
> That is a racist accusation and you should apologize immediately.
Yes, of course, shame on me.
