It's true. May not be fair. But it's not zealotry as portrayed by the media. And people can't wrap their mind around that people would be willing to give up everything for shabbos
Some understand what Shabbos means. IMHO the problem is when your needs effects the needs/rights of others.
I just found a new supply of forks!

I understand that. As did most sane people on the flight, which is why they asked to get off.

Dan, are you still waiting for El Al PR to clear your interview?

ElAl deserves to burn and go bankrupt and whatnot.

I wonder if regular passengers are aware of that.

Very possibly not, hence the altercations described in the above post.

You really think that is fair?
You MIGHT be an exception, but overall I think my statement is accurate.
