Behind the Ban!

Here are some dots , and we think these dots can be connected.

DOT 1.

13th Feb 2016

Below is an e-mail statement of Islamic militant group Al-Shabaab.

“Retribution for the crimes committed by the coalition of western crusaders and their intelligence agencies against the Muslims of Somalia.”

This statement came after the below incident took place in Somalia.

DOT 2.

2nd Feb 2016

20 minutes after taking off from Mogadishu,Somalia,Daallo Airline’s flight 159,en route to Djibouti city, carrying 74 passengers and 7 crew members on board,at an altitude of about 14000 ft ,an explosion occured aboard the aircraft ,opening a hole in the fuselage behind the R2 door.

The explosion was most likely close to seats 15/16F,abeam the forward wing root,and the fuel tanks.

The flight had been delayed before departure ,so at the time of the explosion the aircraft was not yet fully pressurized.

According to ceo of Daallo airline,the suicide bomber and 69 of the 73 passengers on board were meant to board a Turkish airline flight which was cancelled on the morning of 2nd Feb due to poor weather conditions.

Now back to Dot 1.

Al-shabaab also said in the email statement that, it targeted Turkish airline because Turkey is NATO state supporting western operations in Somalia and they were targeting western intelligence officials and Turkish NATO soldiers who were on board.

DOT 3.

Investigation report of explosion

A laptop had been triggered with a timer device to explode the bomb mid flight.

DOT 4.

The Trump in US

Below is the controversial statement of President Trump.

“They’re not coming to this country if I’m president.We are not talking about isolation ,we are talking about security.

We are not talking about religion ,we are talking about security,our country is out of control.”

DOT 5.

The convicts of Somalia Flight 159.

On 30th May 2016 , a somali military court found two men guilty of planning the plot and being members of Al-shabaab and sentenced to life in prison.

Eight airport workers convicted for aiding the plot including screeners,a police officer ,a porter and immigration officer.

DOT 6.

Now let’s get back to US.

Mr.Rubio ,the Florida senator who was leading rival to Mr.Trump challenged the controversial statement of ban on Muslims and below is his statement.

“The plan to ban Muslims is not going to happen.”

DOT 7.

The investigation agencies of somalia flight incident.

1.Somalia’s Air Accident Investigation Authority.

2.National intelligence and security agency

3.Tech team of Hermes airline ,owner of aircraft

4.Airbus, the manufacturer of aircraft

5. The FBI (take a note of it)

DOT 8.

The Ban.

Not the countries ,not the aircraft ,not the airlines ,it’s on Airports.

Below is the list of Airports banned for carrying laptop in direct inbound flights to US.

1.EGYPT :Cairo International Airport

2.JORDAN : Queen Alia International Airport

3.KUWAIT: Kuwait international airport

4.MOROCCO:Morocco Mohammed Airport

5.QUATAR: Hamad international Airport

6.SAUDI ARABIA:King Abdulaziz International Airport

7.King Khalid International Airport (RIYADH)

8.TURKEY: Ataturk international airport (Istanbul)

9.UNITED ARAB EMIRATES: I.Abu Dhabi international airport

2.Dubai International Airport.

You see ,these dots are somehow connected.

The al-shabaab against western world, targeted aviation industry with innovative laptop explosion plot, airport authorities, airlines,even local police had been compromised in Somalias flight 159.Then the Trump on Muslims,FBI’s involvement in investigation in Somalia,must have been shared whatever happened in somalia flight to Trump.And a decision that had been taken by US federalists.

THE QUESTIONS on BAN!

From IATA with frustration,

“Why don’t the US and UK have common list of Airports?How can laptops be secure in the cabin on some flights and not others,including flight departing from same airport?And surely there must be a way to screen electronic equipment effectively?” — Alexendre de Juniac, IATA Director General and CEO

Is the ban temporary?

Take a look at on below statement from IATA CEO.

“the current measures are not an acceptable long-term solution to whatever threat they are trying to mitigate.

Even in the short term it is difficult to understand their effectiveness”.
