Israel Briefly Shuts Down Air Travel Following UFO Sighting

Flight delays caused by UFOs are one of the annoyances of modern life. Via the Herald Sun:

Israel’s civilian air traffic was halted for several minutes after an unidentified flying object was spotted inside Israeli air space, Israel’s army radio said. Air force jets were briefly scrambled and Israeli air space was closed, it said, without saying what caused the scare.

Closing Israeli air space was an “exceptional” measure which demonstrated the level of tension in Israel after the air force shot down an unidentified and unarmed drone which had entered the country’s airspace on Saturday from the Mediterranean.

    Why is this tagged “unexplained phenomena” when the rest of the article clearly states what happened?

    Sensationalism. Thumbs down.

      You clearly didn’t actually READ either article.. This past WEEKENDS drone was fully explained… The thing on Wednesday, and I quote: “Air force jets were briefly scrambled and Israeli air space was closed, it said, without saying what caused the scare”. How, exactly, is that explained? They didn’t once mention what was seen WEDNESDAY… Not the drone on the weekend. Talk about a reading comprehension FAIL! It’s two stories mixed into one which you clearly have no ability to differentiate. Find me any documents that explain what was shot down WEDNESDAY, if anything at all… Oh thats right, there ARE none yet…

        Well, you are pretty heavily invested in a poorly written article. The Herald story doesn’t clearly describe two separate events. WEDNESDAY is not mentioned, at all. I only scanned the France24 story and stopped reading when I saw identical language. With close comparison, The Herald has apparently gone out of their way in excluding the word “Wednesday” from the AP story.

          You really suck at reading comprehension.. It mentions it in the FIRST PARAGRAPH of the France24 article…. psst… Your ignorance is showing… I’m not invested in it. I just find it ridiculous that you can say “when the rest of the article clearly states what happened?”. Yet you don’t even READ the article. So tell me, where exactly does it clearly state what happened on Wednesday? If the articles are poorly written, then how does it also clearly state what happened while being poorly written? Give your head a shake…

            Speaking of reading comprehension fails…
            What did I just say about only scanning the France24 article?

            So, again, how does repeating that you scanned the article while not reading it conflict with my comment that you didn’t read and comprehend the article? Also, my point about you saying the articles clearly state something yet you didn’t even read the full articles where it states these things… Good work killer :)

          • Kevin Leonard October 22, 2012 at 5:00 am #

            Seriously? Did you compare the two articles? They are identical with one glaring exception. Why should I bother carefully reading, again, what I naturally assumed was the exact same article from AP? Now, read just the version from The Herald and understand, Shakespeare, why I would think there was only one event, then go back under your bridge, troll.

          • Gergith October 22, 2012 at 10:04 am #

            Dude… If you compared them in order not to read one, you would have seen this fact/statement in the FIRST paragraph of France 24 article. Face it… You didn’t read, or you did and didn’t comprehend. No amount of words will change that fact given that you admit to it repeatedly. My criticism STILL stands…

          • Kevin Leonard October 22, 2012 at 11:27 am #

            Dude… you are the one who is consistently failing at comprehension, now. I only read them closely for comparison to understand why I didn’t catch that there were two incidents. Do you know what scanning an article means? Does it register that someone might be capable of comprehending that an entire paragraph is virtually identical to another with just a glance? I guess you need to read one word at a time. Here, this might help you: http://www.eyeqadvantage.com/personal/eyeq-speed-reading-course/

          • Gergith October 22, 2012 at 11:00 pm #

            Again… If you scanned them to see if they were identical, then your scanning failed as the articles are NOT identical… So you really aren’t making a logical point… I know that scanning an article means you didn’t actually read it… Which would mean what I am saying is true… Hence you failing at reading comprehension… Not that difficult to get…

    It seems likely that China and/or Russia are giving not-so-subtle hints that Iran has access to their military hardware. Also implied, that the fight can and will come into Israel’s ever expanding borders.

    • BuzzCoastin October 18, 2012 at 6:54 pm #

      not very likely
      since they are significantly behind Uncle Drone when it cums to hardware
      more likely a false flag operation to justify the Iran invasion

    Clearly an act of terrorism by an anti-semitic race of aliens.
