Israelís national airline to stop flying to Cairo (Video)

EL AL Airlines. Israel’s nation airline, will no longer provide flights to Cairo. The number of Israelis flying to Cairo has greatly decreased and EL AL Airlines will no longer be flying almost-empty airplanes to Cairo.

Since El Al shall not be flying to Cairo anymore, that just might increase the fuel allocation, for when such flights shall begin, by (ahem) “single-seat courier aircraft dropping off materiel of a diplomatic nature”!

Remember the days before 9/11/2001, when Taliban terrorists were destroying statues because they were anti-islamic? I also remember a story here in the states that islamic Somalis protested elementary students having assignments that involved drawing faces.

How long will it be before the muslim brotherhood decides to fire rockets at the Sphinx or the Pyramids? How much longer will they allow those evil images to stand?

My sister took a trip last year - despite my strong recommendations against. She was OK.

Capitalism is Freedom. The Islamists hate both, and their economy will collapse.

It makes sense. If it gets any worse in Cairo it will be as dangerous as going to Cairo, Illinois.
