I guess you are too childish to remember when an Israeli Meteor NF13 night fighter shot down an Egyptian Il 14 passenger plane in an attempt to murder Marshal Amer, commander of Egypt's armed forces. All that were murdered were reporters and other civilians. An embarrassing moment for the IDF and Israel. As was the time the IAF butchered a Boeing 727 full of passengers over the Sinai when it blundered over the border. Israel has been far more circumspect in recent decades. it is clear Adam, that you have not a clue why Israel has stopped shooting down airliners.
