About as much to do with it as Christmas does...

What would you call the uptick in terrorist activities in the lead up to Christmas?

Not saying this hijacking is related...yet.

It just gets worse, was enough already for the festive period with the Berlin killings, now he's dead we get this!

What needs to be done to free ourselves of this terror and threat to our children and streets?

news.sky.com...



Is it not a little soon to assume that this is definatley Islamic extremeist hell bent on spoiling Christmas?

Although likley would it not be prudent to wait for more information?
NO!



What makes you so sure? It was an internal flight and there are many reasons for hijacking planes?

Financial gain, freeing political prisoners ect?
No one knows for sure yet! Although it has been claimed that 2 hijackers have threatened to blow up the plane. And if that is true then they are terrorists are they not!


It all depends on the reason for for the bomb would it not?

I am not saying it is not but jumping to the conclusion that this has something to do with Christmas and religious terrorism seems a bit odd to me, the flight was internal and one would assume that the majority of the passengers would be of the predominant religion which is Sunni Muslim I believe and they have landed on what will now be an evacuated airport seems to suggest that the motive could not be as you assume.

We will find out soon enough and hopefully it can be resolved without any loss of life.

ISIS Lists U.S. Churches to Attack at Christmas

Terror pledge highlights 'bloody season' and lone wolf attacks
by Liz Logan | Updated 22 Dec 2016 at 8:43 PM

This week, we’ve heard near-constant reports and updates about the attack at a Berlin Christmas market. The attack was apparently committed by an individual claiming allegiance to ISIS, according to the terrorist group itself. www.lifezette.com...


5 countries targeted, not just the US.

The Sun off all publications seem to have a bit more info, they are claiming that the hijackers have threatened to blow up the planes with hand grenades if their demands are not met but are willing to allow the passengers to leave but not the crew.

They are also claiming the hijackers are Gaddafi supporters.

Sun article

This is just awful!!!! It says on USA Today that they have not released their demands yet but they are supporters of the late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Seems he would go after Clinton after the rude comments she made.

As an educated guess I would say that they are looking to have political prisoners released or something similar.

my prediction :

if the maltese authrorities are unable to resolve the incident by diplomacy and peacefull negotiation

they will request the assistance of the british govt . and the SAS will resolve it

It would not suprise me, the historic links between us and the Maltise are long and positive ones.

They had a referendum on becomeing a full member of the UK in the mid 50's

Women and children being released. Looks like there maybe connections to Gadaffi. The hijacker/s have made their demands.
There is reportedly a Libyan government official on board (past or present). It may well be related to the release on Gadaffi's son.

This may end without bloodshed. Wait and see...

So far I have seen about 8 women coming off the plane. The man standing in the doorway seems to have on a uniform, such as the pilot but I may be wrong.

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat confirmed the jet had seven crew members and 111 passengers, including a baby, on board.


If they are releasing hostages then it is looking more likely that this is a politically motivated act and not an act of terrorism, sadly this will come as a great dissapointment to some people.
