I’m beginning to think the world’s easiest job is the guy who checks the job applications of prospective baggage handlers.

All he needs to do is watch out for Muslim men with a seething anger against the West.

If he finds one of them, he gives them the job.

A Heathrow worker held on suspicion of terrorist fundraising is a baggage handler who loads planes, The Sun can reveal.

The 43-year-old – one of two British Airways employees under arrest – has an airside pass and access to jets.

His job has alarmed security chiefs and raised fears he was planning to plant a bomb on a BA aircraft.

However, Scotland Yard stressed last night the man had been arrested on suspicion of financing terrorism, not of plotting atrocities.

Well, ain’t that a relief! For a minute there, I thought he posed a danger to airline passengers.

    1. Yes unfortunately. A guy who goes by the name JIDF got annoyed at something I tweeted, and purposely revealed my FB account name Dave Israel and stated it goes against their TOS, even though he admitted FB monitors his tweets. My account was deactivated within 5 minutes.

      My suggestion would be to follow me on Twitter here: http://twitter.com/israellycool

        If you will excuse me, I am a little confused. There are a lot of Facebook accounts not under names, such as the above Avatards. Do you have to have a group of people or something?

    1. Yes, it was a fake name. But they had no way of knowing that, since "Israel" is a real family name. Enter Jerk Internet Defense Force, who published the name, insinuated it was fake and against FB's TOS, and then admitted FB monitor his tweets. What a winner!

      1. Really? I am totally deleting them off my facebook then…what a joke! Aren't they supposed to be standing up for people like you and not denigrating them???

  1. It seems one of my comments has been removed? Here was my latest message to you, in which you didn't respond:

    Hi-

    I'm sorry my friend keeps harping on the issue.

    Here's the deal: Facebook generally takes at LEAST 24-48 hours to take action against TOS violations, which MUST go through the proper channels. I did NOT report you via Facebook, nor did I write to Facebook about your account.

    In retrospect, I believe someone else reported your account days prior to any of my tweeting about the issue and that it was a coincidence that you were banned upon my tweeting. I honestly do not think any of my tweets had anything to do with it. If they did, then I sincerely apologize as I was not looking to get you banned, or in trouble whatsoever.

    My deletion of the tweets in question were not in any sort of effort to hide what I did. In fact, I've deleted a lot of tweets lately as my goal is to stay more focused on Twitter and not engage in public infighting (in which our enemies love to capitalize upon).

    Yes, I was annoyed with you seeming to not care about the death threats I was receiving, however, I'd like to move forward and drop it and I'd like you to know that the last thing I'd want to do is to get any pro-Israel activists banned from Facebook or anywhere else.

    It is my hope that you and I can move forward in peace. There are many other things happening right now in my own activist life which are of serious security, privacy, and safety concerns, and in fact, my own Facebook account was deactivated by "pro-Israel" activists who acted against me, actually- so I know EXACTLY how you must be feeling.

    That's a whole other story, I'd be happy to discuss w/ you if you're interested.

    If you'd like to get to a better place, perhaps we can talk via Skype if you'd like, or you can please write to me directly….

    All the best, and again, I'm very sorry for all of this.

    Sincerely,

    David

  2. Well said! If I could write like this I would be well happy. The more I read articles of such quality as this (which is rare), the more I think there might be a future for the Net. Keep it up, as it were.
