Happened earlier today. Turn on TV. Multiple victims. Something at the EL AL ticket counter.

Looks like a disgruntled employee and the El All sec guy shot him. He was shooting people because he lost his job. At least that is what the news is reporting.

Where did you hear that? I've been bouncing between Fox News and MSNBC and haven't heard anything about a disgruntled employee. Lots of rumors, little fact. Sounds like the airline industry eh?

Heard it from an interview with one of the security guards that was near by. Not the one who shot the guy. I think what we really have here is a out of control media. Instead or reporting, they are surmiseing. Guess I fell for it. We will probably find out later today.;)

I must say i am somewhat impressed that they shot the guy before a big hostage situation or something like that. At least we dont have to sit by and watch this mans trial, his justice has been served.

I guess I'm not aloud to refer to the terrorist that attacked these people as a FRIGGIN RAGHEAD!!! Funny how all the Sept 11 hijackers were all FRIGGIN RAGHEADS, and all of the Suicide Bombers in Israel are FRIGGIN RAGHEADS. So, if I'm on an airplane and some nut job is trying to pull something the first person I will suspect is a FRIGGIN RAGHEAD. That's not a racist statement, it's an intelligent statement. Remember the definition of learning? "A change in behavior due to experience".

Ah yes, the peaceful, loving religion of Islam!

I think our founding fathers were correct to hold true to idea of freedom of religion, but this shi+ has gone too far. I bet they'd be spinning in their graves if they knew what these a$$holes do in the name of God (read Allah). I don't think that it was their intention to protect these rat-ba$tards when they drafted the Bill of Rights. Hey, let's say someone started a religion in which one of the basic tenets was to sacrifice children atop pyramids... "Oh, but we are killing in the name of God and we will be rewarded for our goodness." Think that would be allowed?

Here's a novel idea... get and/or keep them out of the country... and leave them out. "Sorry, sir, but you're from (fill in Middle Eastern Country Name here), and as such you cannot enter the United States." FLYnMONKEYS has it right... it was ARABS who blew up the WTC in 1993, it was ARABS who bombed the Khobar (sp?) Towers, it was ARABS who bombed the embassies in Africa, it was ARABS who blew up the USS Cole, and it was ARABS who attacked the US on Sept. 11th!!! Gee... does anyone else see a connection here?

But, the politically-correct leftists in this country abhor the idea of profiling. *GASP* "Oh no, we can't profile... we wouldn't want to hurt their self-esteem. Besides, it's not fair."

Political-correctness is going to get more people in this country KILLED!! It's only a matter of time.

Okay, I'm going to relinquish the soap-box and take a few deep breaths!

You are "aloud" to say or type anything you want. Folks are also "allowed" to form their judgements about the type of person you are, based on those things you choose to say and type. While your observations may or may not be correct, the manner in which you choose to express those observations leads others to the conclusion that you are a "FRIGGIN insensitive, and bigoted horse's ass.

Again, that may or may not be the case, but based on the way you choose to express yourself, that is what they will infer.

OK miss Crabtree you got me on my English.

Metro, I don't care what you think about my feelings towards the people who have killed so many innocent people. In the 30's and 40's they had a name for them.....Nazi. Now........well let's just say that Friggin Raghead is about as mild as I can come up with. What you don't know is that the moderator took out a post in which I used the term Friggin Raghead, so I decided to send him a mssg assuming it would be removed. It wasn't. That suits me fine, I had a dream job and now it's gone...for now anyway. Guess who is responsible for me getting furloughed.......? Hey since you are so good at English can you help me with my resume?

Guess who??? Management. That's who. Using 9/11 as a convenient excuse for there lack of ability to run huge multi-billion dollar a year corporations in a global economy while reaping HUGE personal monetary rewards for their lack of ability. I think the appropriate term is "grave-dancing", and they are reprehensible for doing such. Lumping the misfortune on those who got them where they are in the first place (labor...pilots, F/As, ramper, ticket agents, CSAs, fuelers, etc., etc., etc.) when the inevitable misforture of a down business cycle hits them, is what they do best.

I do not think 85 year old ladies should be strip-seacrched, I am not against racial profiling. I am well aware of who is responsible for the despicable acts of terror against the U.S. and other soveriegn nations. However, I would question what positive result may come of otherwise mature and open minded Americans stooping to bigotted rhetoric and the slinging of racial epithets.

As long as you mention the Nazis...Was it not Adolf Hitler, in an effort to instill a sense of nationalism, (not to mention quench his own desire for dictatorial power) that villainized the Jews and began a campaign of terror that resulted in the death of so many millions of innocent people because of the ehtnicity or religious beliefs.

While some of your feelings may be valid, slurs and racial bigotry is really not the answer...that was point. Take from it what you will.
