Israel: One friend less

The Polish president, a rare European leader friendly to Israel (because there are no Jews in his country), died in a plane crash with much of his country’s leadership.

The crash is a happy accident for Putin: the Poles were flying to Smolensk, a town in West Russia, to commemorate the Russian massacre of Polish POWs. The absence of high-level Russian officials at the planned commemoration shows how controversial was the affair.

The Polish plane attempted to land in fog and missed the airport. Such a wide miss with 1,200 feet of visibility would be odd in itself, but there is more: eyewitnesses report that the plane descended to below 15 feet (tree level) a mile from the airport, which would not have been possible if the airport’s navigational equipment had been functioning correctly.
