Not everyone was saddened by Tuesday’s helicopter crash that killed two Israeli reserve pilots. “Peace activist” Noa Shaindlinger took to Facebook yesterday morning to celebrate as news of the incident surfaced. “We may have some good news later this morning (hint: IOF drill accident with casualties,” she posted to her Facebook page. Shaindlinger later deleted the post from her page.
Shaindlinger no doubt would have appreciated the tweet sent out by Hamas’s military wing, Alqassam Brigades. Anonymous blogger Elder of Ziyon caught this exchange between the IDF and the terror tweeters:
On Monday an Israel Air Force Cobra helicopter on a training flight crashed south of Gedera overnight, breaking into pieces and killing the two reservist pilots on board.
The IDF named the pilots as Lt.-Col. (res.) Noam Ron, 49, from Oranit and Maj. (res.) Erez Flekser, 31, from Herzliya.
