This law is a precaution one. I know that there are Jews in Iraq, Iran and other countries in the Golf area, but you still don’t get it yet how things work in the middle east.
Yesterday, 15 years ago, an air force navigator, Ron Arad, was captured in Lebanon by Amal organization. He was moved between several organizations and ended in Iran. For years now, we have no idea what is going on with him. He disappeared like he was never exist.
A year ago Hizbala terror organization hijacked 4 Israelis (3 soldiers from Israel (with BIG help from the UN!!!) and one civilian from Europe). No one saw them ever since, no Red Cross personal, no UN, nobody. We don’t know what is there condition or anything else.
As you can see, western code doesn’t apply in this region.
Now, I don’t say that if an Israeli will land in Arab country he won’t get out (and only Iraq and Iran are a real problem) but why to test it. Don’t we have bigger problems?
Marco, you probably forgot that Iraq attacked Israel during the Golf war when Israel had nothing to do with this war. If Sadam will fill the rope on his neck in the next months to come, he will attack Israel again (notice that an attack against Iraq is not the same thing as an attack against Sadam, after all, USA never stop bomb Iraq ever since the war ended).
Long live the B747
