Come fly the unfriendly skies

El Al has announced that it will be naming a new Boeing 777-200 after the town Sderot. Sderot has been the target of thousands of Kassam missiles launched from the nearby Gaza Strip. The other 777 plane will be named after Kiryat Shmona, a town devastated by mortar shells last summer during the war with Lebanon.

Really now. Would you want to ride on either of these planes?
