Maybe try and help him understand by posting in the comment section. The claim by some they were "kidnapped" doesn't help.
I just found a new supply of forks!

Not a very nice 'outsiders' perspective on the story. I replied back to John from Loyaltylobby that I'm appalled at the wording used in this article...
Whoa! fakenews is not even the right word for this article, aside from calling Orthodox Jews "crazy" it was written without ANY basic research and they have ALL the facts wrong!

Wow, that is some ignorance.
Someone should post a comment with links to the 4 stories I wrote on this flight.

They've replaced  'crazy orthodox passengers' with 'ultra orthodox passengers'. They still don't have their facts right though.

Someone in the comments there already directed people to DDMS for the real story, so I have nothing more to add.

On LY he might fly F. I've been with him on DeltaOne TLV-JFK.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Amazing that nobody in the Chareidi side will own up to the fact that boarding this flight was poor judgment in the first place.

Because it's irrelevant to the ElAl angle of the story that everyone is debating.

Neither side is blameless here. El Al just made headlines as they outright lied.
