Just Kidding

I read this:-

A 16-year-old girl who was kicked off a flight for coughing too much is back home in Hawaii.

Rachel Collier arrived in Honolulu on Wednesday, a day after she was removed from the Continental Airlines plane as it was about to leave Newark, New Jersey, for Honolulu. The teen had caught a cold during a school spring break trip to Washington, D.C., and New York. She fell asleep on the plane and woke up coughing and gasping for breath as it was about to take off.

Continental said in a statement that Collier was coughing "uncontrollably" and that "the captain felt he was acting in the best interest of the passenger and other passengers on the flight."

And I thought to myself, this can happen in the U.S. but we'll get hell here in Israel for expelling an Arab terrorist.
