Coordinated laser attacks against aircraft in Australia

As reported in FoxNews and other sources, there was a 15-minute long attack on aircraft flying into Sydney airport.

Government officials also are considering a ban on the lasers after pilots of six planes made emergency complaints of the distracting light being shone into the cockpits and had to alter their flight paths into Sydney when they were targeted in a "cluster attack" last Friday.

The planes changed their flight paths into Kingsford Smith airport after pilots were targeted by four green lasers around 10:30 p.m. local time.

Authorities said it was a co-ordinated attack lasting 15 minutes.

The laser beams appeared to have originated from the Bexley area in southwestern Sydney.
The attack was described by an Air Services Australia spokesman as "the worst attack in our experience."

What the report doesn't say is that Bexley is the home of a large contingent of Lebanese Muslim immigrants (source is a socialist rag that seems to think pointing this out is a bad thing) many of whom are suspected of supporting Hezballah.
