when it's every day life for many in Israel.
Not quite. Never had a situation where we were told a presumably nuclear warhead was headed our way

Of course.

They have these equipment in Goose Bay?
Or they shlepet every suitcase by hand?
Airlines sending me "We're in this together" emails.

Bruh, where were you when my suitcase weighed it 51.50 pounds?

Exactly my thoughts. There is a difference between a ballistic missile coming your way and a rocket manufactured by Hamas.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

I said many, not all. This was ballistic, not nuclear CMIIW

They're not mutually exclusive. Ballistic refers to the trajectory the missile takes. Nuclear refers to the payload.

I stand corrected.

But chemical biological did happen
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Didnít actually happen, but was feared.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Yes. It happened that they feared
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

But not really feared by people who trusted when they were told that Eretz Yisroel is the safest place.

Buncha dirty Jews on a Jewish airline. Nu nu. Love how the Hawaii missile test gone wrong got so much coverage when it's every day life for many in Israel.
It could have been a nuke for that matter. Ppl thought that Hawaii might be history.

Not taking away from the craziness of the situation in sderot etc.

Does anyone know what kind of cellphone coverage they had in Canada? Were they able to charge their phones the entire time? What did the plane run on the whole time?
