An armed civilian of Israel shot the driver of a car bomb, Witch then detonated. I just saw this on FOX new. This should be a NRA commercial. They got the whole thing on security camera tape from the store the man worked at.

I haven't found a link yet I just saw it on a FOX news update on the television. Sorry I'll keep looking.

You know, I wonder if El Al, the Israeli national airline arms its pilots? Now that would be a good question to ask! El Al hasn't had an airline hi-jacking since 1971! And two of the four perps on that plane were killed by Israeli security men on board. Hmmm, El Al pilots probably don't [u]need[/u] to be armed, but I'd bet they are!

ETH..."Hmmm, El Al pilots probably don't need to be armed, but I'd bet they are!" I would be throwing money away betting on that one![;)]

All El Al pilots are in fact armed. This is where Americans pilots got the idea of carrying weapons to begin with. Too bad we don't follow their lead. Seems to have worked well there.

ETH, AFAIK the El Al flight crews have been armed since at least the early 70's, maybe longer. I was told this while I was in high school way back in the mid 70's by my history teacher (who btw was Jewish and had served in the IDF way back when).

Of course not because if we armed them they might actually prevent a hijacking [;D]

excerpt from the article: [b]Security guard Eli Federman said he saw the car turn sharply and race toward the club. He pushed clubgoers inside and opened fire, hitting the attacker, who fell from the car, which burst into flames. "Then I fired the rest of the bullets into his head," killing him, Federman said.
