U.S. bans electronics on flights from #Islamic countries

Due to their ugly habit of killing people and blowing stuff up, U.S. officials have called for a ban on electronic devices larger than a smartphone in the cabin of flights to the U.S. from eight Islamic countries.

U.S. officials did so in response to intelligence information about terrorist threats.

The airlines that serve the eight Islamic countries — Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Turkey and Morocco — were given 96 hours to implement the ban.

The ban would require passengers on such flights to put all laptop computers, electronic tablets and other devices larger than a smartphone into luggage checked into the cargo compartment.

Commercial airlines are still some of the Islamic’s favorite targets.

Amazingly, America still lets the airlines operate about 50 daily flights to the U.S.
