Israel tightens airspace security after jetís disappearance
The Times of Israel/ AP ^ | March 16, 2014 | Staff

Posted on 03/17/2014 2:34:05 AM PDT by kingattax

Israel has tightened security in its airspace following the disappearance and possible hijacking of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 on March 8, Channel 2 reported Sunday.

According to the report, security officials and aviation authorities recently held a security assessment and decided upon a series of security measures intended to enhance safety in Israeli airspace.

Among the measures, airliners are now required to identify themselves much earlier when approaching Israel’s airspace. Other actions were not disclosed at this time.

The increased security came as El Al’s former global security chief told The Times of Israel he believes that the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines flight points directly to Iran.

Would be a bad time if a pilot forgets or sends a wrong IFF code.

Ah this is what I had read and posted about. Very telling. Very.

Bless those people or their souls, whichever is more appropriate. Thank you God.

By this annoumcement the Israeli’s who are playing it safe seem to think the aircraft was headed for a landing strip not for dumping in the Ocean. Where it could be refitted and most importantly refueled. A lot of logistics involved and pre-planning. Including the use of communications which could have been monitored where there are “the usual suspects”.

Kinda begs as to just how a stolen jumbo jet can spoof itself into Israeli airspace, by repainting as FedEx? UPS?
A US AWACS?
By flying from a nearby location and following VERY closely behind another jet? In a blind spot?
Or not even flying to land in Israel, it only has to be high enough to make a sudden abrupt course and altitude change and with some hastily attached countermeasures such as chaffe and flares could plummet from 40,000 feet at over the speed of sound just to get within an effective airburst range of a large nuke its carrying.

A very reasonable precaution. Exactly what I would expect from Israel.

First thing I would do is to check for any backdoor program access to the auto pilot programs, then to install a shunt that can disable the computer if its compromised. I hope also that in the US they provide the Air Marshals with a sizable pressurized oxygen supply, otherwise he would be knocked out as well.

I can’t help but think Iran is involved somehow. Maybe the Iranians with the stolen passports were helping one of the pilots? Something tells me that the US knows more than its letting on. Maybe it won’t spill it so Obama can continue his victory lap on his agreement with Iran. I wouldn’t put it past Obama to help Iran attack Israel, maybe with an EMP device.

The stolen jet is now being repainted in the colors of:
...all of whom fly fleets of 777s.

The bad guys are also disposing of all the bodies, ripping out the seats and interior fittings. Inside, they will either put a Pakistani nuclear weapon - or if one is not available, pack the aircraft full of high explosives, chemical weapons and dirty nuclear materials.

Then they will set off towards the west, escorted by a rogue fighter pilot in a stolen fighter jet - or perhaps with a nod and wink from the Pakistani military.

They will fly in from the east, under the radar as they are so good at doing. They will tail, say, an Air France flight from Asia into Europe. When it is over a body of water, the fighter jet will swoop up and shoot down the Air France flight. The stolen 777, packed with explosives or whatever, will take its place and set its transponder and information to match.

When it approaches, it will identify itself as the plane that was destroyed. Even if someone is suspicious, a visual inspection will show it to be painted in the colors of Air France.

Nobody will shoot it down.
It will then do something that makes 9/11 look like child's play.

FWIW - Air France flies 777s from Singapore to Israel. I would keep my eye on every flight.

Whatever you do, don’t fly a 777 into Europe from Asia until they find this thing!

I am worried about this, as so many think this jet is feeding the fish - when it is obviously not.

This is a crack paramilitary operation and thus far, they have outsmarted the USA, Chinese, Malays and 20-something other nations.

They could just try the brute force option, send as many fighter aircraft as a “shield” with pilots who are given orders to humanly intercept any ground or air launched missiles.

Kinda reminds me of the big battle scene from Enders Game.

Or drone aircraft, but these planes ARE broadcasting the transponder code of a 777, Israeli radar then shoots its missiles at the drones instead. The 777 is in full radio and electronics silence, and who knows may have a rudimentary crude spray coating to diffuse radar.

I remember the old Ford Tri Motors with the corrugated skin played havoc with radar.

A couple days or weeks back the terrorist chatter was March 24, 2014 something big was going to happen in the world that would stir up significant problems. the stupid shittite muslims believe the Al Mahdi will return - chaos, confusion and significant bloodshed of the sworn enemies (infidels) of Muslims worldwide.

I read for hours and hours on some aviation forums, and another forum too, about the missing jet. There were some Aussies who said their government had warned them to stay out of Malaysia.

There has to be intelligence out there that knows something..and the press is just doing the mindless same stuff over and over.

Btw there were no pilots on the forums, none, that believed this jet was in the water somewhere.

One of the crazies in Iran said recently that the hand is on the trigger now for the destruction of Israel. This dovetails with what you’re saying.

The Hajj sites are also vulnerable as are the oilfields of the Eastern Provence of Saudi Arabia.

The mullahs covet the holy sites in Mecca currently controlled by the House od Saud.

March 24th?

Who will be where then, is Putin or Obama heading some place at that date?

Some big event where thousands will be congregating, a sports event?

To be brutally honest, for any terrorist group worth their salt, that's a mighty tempting target.

Yes it would be, and while all eyes are looking up a nuke is delivered by say a train, a truck or other means, a diversion, the plane event is “manufactured” to be a diversion.

Same with Israel, they focus all their energy up and not at ground level.

I’m wondering why the media isn’t jumping on this march 24th date, its a ripe and juicy headline if nothing else, unless they were told not to talk about it.
So far all this morning FOX is just repeating stale headlines about the missing jet.

A lot of it is the “hindsight effect”.

Sometimes, things that may seem unrelated turn out, in hindsight, to be related; it’s just that no one put 2+2 together beforehand.

The Hague is also a major port city; a nuclear device could easily be brought in via the seas.

When it comes to terrorist groups, a lot of times - with jihadist groups in particular - there’s a tendency to underestimate their imagination. While most of us - myself included - look at a lot of their various schemes as either harebrained or little more than cartoon supervillainy, at the same time, it shows on their part that they’re clearly thinking “out of the box” in ways that conventional thinking fails to grasp and therein lies the danger.

Boeing 777 Airliner

The Boeing 777 is a family of long-range wide-body twin-engine jet airliners developed and manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Top speed: 590 mph (950 km/h)

About a 1,000 mile radius should do it!

That would cover all of Egypt, Iraq Jordan, Syria and extend to Iran’s border.

Makes you realize how lucky we are in the USA to have oceans as neighbors for much of our country. Poor Israel, in less than one hour they are very vulnerable from many enemy cities.

Jerusalem to Tehran is 970 miles

Jerusalem to Syria - Damascus 135 miles

Jerusalem to Lebanon - Beirut 146 miles

Jerusalem to Egypt - Cairo 265 miles

Jerusalem to Iraq - Baghdad 547 miles

Beware of the “Ides of March”.... Shakespeare 1601

Adar, 22, 1430
Earthquake Saves Roman Jews from Forced Conversion
The church and the government of Rome set Wednesday, March 6, 1430, as the day when all the Jews of Rome must convert or face death. On that day a great earthquake shook Rome and many of the archbishops and priests who conceived the decree were killed. Following the earthquake, Pope Martin V annulled the decree.

I know.... March 6th nor the 24th are the Ides....

Then over on the Gulf is Dubai and the tallest building in the world. The wealth and Arab sinners there must be anathema to the radical fundamentalist wackos

When I think on it, the Burj Khalifai makes a stronger statement thany target in America or Israel.

Jewish love for Jerusalem drew unexpected praise from the head of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror organization, who told religious leaders in Tehran that the Jews show their love for the city more than Muslims do

"The group is considered to be one of Hamas’s largest rivals for control of the Strip and enjoys close ties with Iran"

The longer the bad guys wait with that plane not he ground, the moare they are risking this mission.

Expect something to happen soon. Might be good to be out of the stock market the first day or two.
