Chareidi Father Of 8 Delays El Al Takeoff From Tel Aviv Over Movie Screens

It seems that the Matza has gone directly to the heads of crazy mishigoim. 

A chareidi father of eight detained a flight from Tel Aviv to Kiev as it was preparing for takeoff. 

The flight was a low-cost El Al affiliate, UP, which was scheduled to fly to Kiev. The flight was delayed for over an hour as he insisted the cabin crew close the movie screens which was visible.

Passengers explain that some on board worked to persuade the man to back down, as did members of the cabin crew but he persisted despite all efforts to allay the situation.

The passengers add there were many chareidim on board, and they told him “sit down because you are making a major Chilul Hashem” but he would not adhere to their words.

At the end, he agreed to wear his eye mask, and he was given sufficient number for all of his children as well.

El Al officials confirm it was UP flight LY2654 to Kiev and that the passenger was insistent regarding demands to fold down the screens. When the passenger finally agreed to be seated the flight could take off as he and his family members had their eyes covered.

So his kids have to sit in blind darkness because because their dad is a religious nut?

And how exactly does this religious genius expect to enforce his children's blindness when he's wearing his eye covering?

Let him stay home. Doesn't he know the rumors about the nice ladies in Uman waiting for hasidishe patrons?

I hope that when he was wearing his eye cover his children had the brains to watch something.

One he covered their eyes he probably watched

It was a flight from Kiev TO Tel Aviv and the family was from Brooklyn.

AishKodesh would probably say: "Oh guys, don't dirty up your Neshamos with all this Lashon Hara. You know better!"

Haha.

What happened to AishKodesh? He's not here?
I liked him. Didn't always agree with him, but he seemed like a nice guy.

Yeah, he left because of all the lashon hara, he said.

"Shalom Aleichem Everyone:

God morning. Today is likely my last day posting on this blog (bli neder, but still...). It has been nice to converse with all of you -- everyone with their different views and comments.

As I have said before, I am very sorry if I ever insulted or hurt anybody.

I honestly would love to continue to talk with everyone here! Just with less Lashon Hara etc. involved.... We can speak on my blog https://achsameach.blogspot.com, and even perhaps keep up a friendship.

Please everyone remember: You can beat the opposition: Whether it be from your Yetzer Hara or anything else, you can make it through, with Hashem's Aid. And He is always with you wherever you go. Please be with Him as well....

I tried to help on this blog to remind people of what they (we) are supposed to be doing -- and, Baruch Hashem, I think there were some benefits.

I guess it is now time to finish this "farewell". I love you all, my brothers and sisters!

Kol Tuv and I wish you all a Chas Kasher V'Sameach and a wonderful life full of Simcha and Avodas Hashem Yisbarech! May you all merit greeting Eliyahu HaNavi tonight, Amein Vi'Amein!

Sincerely, B'Ahavah,

AishKodesh"

Well, I hope he'll return.
His civility was a nice counter-balance to my 'Depravitch' in the few exchanges we had.
I'll visit his blog, say hi and wish him a good Shabbos.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, maybe more people should do that. I've been to his blog. It's pretty nice.

Do you think people are dumb? Aishkodesh leaves and "MusserYid" shows up. It's pretty damn obvious.

Average Shmo said...

That's stupid. MussarYid is rude -- AishKodesh was always really polite!

I'm not on here often, but I gotta say Aish Kodesh was nice.
Perhaps he'll read these comments and come back. A little on the too Frum side for me, but I respect his beliefs and how he posted comments in a respectful manner regardless of who posted it.
I've written a (too) long post about it before.
Everyone's got a right to their opinion and that's what makes this site what it is. I believe the reason there aren't more decent well-written people on here with intelligent comments is mostly do to the stupid name calling done by too many.
Please all, for the sake of participating in a site one can be proud to be part of, Enough with the childish name calling.

Anyone taking bets on how many of his kids end up "Off the Derech"? (Or here, going away from what their Kookie father taught them would be "On the Derech")
I usually say "To each his own" and though disagree can at least understand it and sometimes even respect it. But here, this guys just nuts. Making a scene over a blank screen? I just don't get it and don't think I ever will.
