Egyptian officials: No survivors in downed jet carrying 224 people

Igal HechtIsrael Correspondent

On Monday, four separate terrorist attacks occurred in and around Jerusalem as Palestinian terrorists continue to attack and terrorize Israelis causing several injuries and leaving one terrorist dead PLUS;

* On Saturday, Egypt confirmed that a Russian plane carrying 224 passengers and crew crashed in the Sinai Desert leaving no survivors. On Monday, a top Russian airline official said the plane was downed by an external impact ruling out the possibility of technical fault or pilot error;

* With almost all of the ballots counted in the Turkish election the ruling AKP Party had won almost 49.4% of the vote with Erdogan hailing the results claiming the national will manifested itself in favour of stability yet Erdogan's crackdown on media freedoms and tightening grip on the judiciary has alarmed European leaders.

I am becoming a truly lost Canadian!! Collectively, my husband and I lost a number of our family members in WWI/WWII yet my present/fellow Canadians are so (media) incensed at Israel’s existence because it is not PC otherwise. Palestinians, et al, are so hot to be and always will be angry victims in their perceived uber harsh world pissing on them, (lol) and lucky them … now they have the Canadian high-bred bleeding heart liberal sharing their train to nowhere!!

If the aircraft broke up in flight as reported today on the news – yet there is no immediately apparent human error or technical malfunction (also reported today on the news) that leave very few options – and terrorism will likely be found to be the cause.

Entitled Canadians will list this as a lone wolf attack if terror is the cause – of that I am certain.

In the end I am also certain of one thing – if it IS found to be terror I guarantee the paid trolls will be out telling us we cannot blame slammers for this – it was an American plot.

As I have written before – I have been the first on scene to a couple of crash sites – not a nice thing to see – my heart goes out to the families.

The MSM will report that the IDF murdered 1 and arrested 1 Palestinian for resisting occupation after 4 Mossad coordinated attacks on Israelis and tourists.
Don’t you pay attention to the news? The Palestinians are the victims and the Mossad and IDF are behind all the attacks to make the real victims look bad.

Drew, every good leftie knows that when a Palestinian attacks Israelis it is obviously a Jewish plot.

So i wonder when the media party will call this a Jewish plot unless they ignore it altogether that is.
