Airline to remove passengers who refuse to sit next to women

Israeli airline El Al said it would "immediately" remove any person from a flight who won't sit next to another passenger following outrage after four ultra-Orthodox men refused to take their assigned seats because they were next to women.

An incident last Friday at Kennedy Airport on El Al's New York-Tel Aviv flight prompted one of Israel's largest tech firms to say it would boycott the national airline. The women in that case were moved away from the men despite a court ruling against the practice.

5. "One of the men was so devout that he boarded the plane with his eyes closed"

If your devil-sent boner scares you that much I have a simple solution just cut your nuts off.

9. It really isn't primarily about boners ...

 

It's menstrual taboos.

Really.

15. Those aren't G-d's rules

 

they're rules made up by men to keep control of their women. There are NO women torah scholars interpreting the holy books so all the "rules" are made up by men. It's why I feel free to ignore them and interpret the holy books for myself.

11. On a flight from London to NYC in '89

A few rows of passengers had to play musical chairs to accommodate one crazy Muslim lady-nut because she was seated next to a man! She insisted she could only sit next to women. And this Orthodox woman was dressed in the beekeeper outfit (quoting B.Maher).

There were disgruntled flight attendants (but apologetic) and passengers, including myself who was seated in front of her. She held up the flight, so I'm sure the pilot was not happy either.

13. EXCELLENT

 

El Al has historically given into these kinds of moronic demands and has held up flights for hours because of them. If the morons don't want to sit next to women, let them buy the seat next to them PERIOD - without exceptions.
