A. ACCORDING TO A USA TODAY ARTICLE, IN 2003 AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT #316 WITH 68 PASSENGERS SAT ON THE RUNWAY AT NEW YORK’S JFK AIRPORT, WHILE GOVERNMENT AUTHORITIES TRIED TO DETERMINE IF A WOMAN ON BOARD WAS LEAVING THIS COUNTRY AGAINST HER WILL.

B. SHE AND HER HUSBAND HAD SERVED AS INTERPRETERS FOR THE COALITION HIGH COMMAND, AND AL-QAEDA TRIED TO KILL THEM, BUT THEY ESCAPED!!

C. NOT TO BE DETERRED, AL-QAEDA BOMBED HER PARENTS, WHICH PRECIPITATED THEIR ASKING FOR ASYLUM IN THE USA.

D. THEY DEFECTED AND WERE PLACED IN A WITNESS PROTECTION PROGRAM,

E. AND SOME OF THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS WHERE RESETTLED IN BRITAIN AND CANADA, BUT AL- QAEDA SLEEPER CELLS WERE ORDERED TO KILL THEM, WHICH THEY DID!!

F. THOSE DEATHS WERE MORE THAN THE WOMAN COULD BARE, SO SHE DECIDED TO GO BACK TO IRAQ, AGAINST HER HUSBANDS WISHES, FORCING HIM TO CALL THE STATE DEPARTMENT TO STOP HER FROM COMMITTING VIRTUAL SUICIDE!!

G. SO WITH TV CAMERAS WHIRRING AND CLICKING, THIS WOMAN STOOD IN THE PRESENCE OF OFFICIALS FROM BOTH IRAQ AND THE U.S. AND SAID: “I LOVE MY HUSBAND, BUT HE MADE HIS DECISION TO STAY, AND I HAVE MADE MY DECISION TO LEAVE. I CANNOT SIT BY, WHILE OUR FAMILIES ARE MURDERED. IF THEY WANT MY HEAD, I WILL GIVE IT TO THEM!!” AND SHE TURNED AND RE-BOARDED THE PLANE!

H. FOR THREE DAYS THAT AIR-BUS SAT ON THE RUNWAY AS OFFICIALS TRIED TO SORT IT ALL OUT, AND THEN AS SUDDENLY AS IT ALL BEGAN, FLIGHT #316 LIFTED INTO THE EVENING SKY, TAKING THIS WOMAN TO CERTAIN DEATH!!

I. IN A SIMILAR WAY, “THE AIR BUS OF TIME” IS BEING HELD ON THE RUNWAY OF LIFE, WAITING FOR THE PASSENGERS TO DECIDE IF THEY WANT TO GET ON AND SPEND ETERNITY IN HEAVEN, OR GET OFF AND GO TO HELLFIRE!!
