Ejen Penerbangan Israel Enggan Terima Tempahan MH370?

Ingat tak lagi seramai 4000 orang pekerja WTC terselamat dalam serangan 9/11 kerana tidak datang bekerja pada hari tersebut. Nampaknya macam ada kebetulan juga apabila terdapat penumpang Israel terselamat dari nahas MH370. Lapuran freemalaysiantoday(1) juga mempersoalkan pesawat tersebut dapat memuatkan seramai 300 orang penumpang, tetapi siapakah dalam senarai menunggu yang tidak mengambil penerbangan tersebut.

Kebetulannya peristiwa 9/11 berlaku pada hari sambutan selichos(2) dan yang menyebabkan ramai pekerja yahudi lewat datang bekerja kerana terlebih dahulu melakukan acara sambutan tersebut. Kerana kelewatan itulah yang menyelamatkan semua pekerja yahudi tersebut.

Seperti diilapurkan oleh timesofisrael(3) penumpang tersebut terselamat kerana ejen pelancungannya di Israel enggan mengambil tempahan kerana hari tersebut jatuh pada hari Sabbath. Mengikut kepercayaan yahudi orthodox membantu perjalanan seseorang pada hari sambutan tersebut ditegah dan dikira bersubahat mencemari hari sambutan tersebut.

Berikut ialah petikan email antara salah seorang penumpang yang dikenali sebagai Andy dengan ejen pelancungan Israel tersebut antara 13 dan 14 Januari lalu:

Andy: One amendment, I need the KUL-PEK flight a day later. I need the extra day in Kuala. once that is set you can lock in.

Travel Agent: I wish I can give you a day later, but you know I just don’t like flying Jews on Shabbat. I can take that leg out if you want and you book yourself.

Andy decides to book the flight himself but later changes his mind:

Andy: I reconsidered, you are right I should be more observant, I’ll manage without that day in Kuala. Since I’ll have an extra night in PEK Any recommendations for a good Friday night dinner in Beijing?

Agent: Ok, glad to hear. Try this: http://www.chabadbeijing.com/

Then, on March 8, Andy writes:

Holy God,
You sure heard what happened to MH370
I cannot stop thinking about this.
This is a true miracle for the books. You are a true life saver…
I cannot think anymore! We’ll talk later this week. Don’t know how to thank you enough

Portal berita timesofisrael mendapatkan pengesahan dari Daniel Eleff dari syarikat Dan's Deal, dan mendapat maklum balas seperti berikut:

“At this time the travel agent and the passenger are opting to remain anonymous. There has been a fair amount of negative feedback and they are choosing to wait until the fate of the flight in known to determine if they’ll go public.

“I have personally verified the story and can vouch for its authenticity. The emails I posted with time stamps are unaltered except to remove identifiable information.”

Berikut adalah butiran terperinci penumpang tersebut(4):

On 01/13/14 Andy emailed his travel agent his desired itinerary:

The travel agent, an Orthodox Jew, proposed the following business class itinerary, slightly altering the Kuala Lumpur-Beijing flight from Saturday to Friday.

Andy loved the price, but again requested the Saturday morning flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing:

The travel agent responded that he would not be able to book travel for him over the Sabbath, but that he was free to book that flight by himself:

Andy agreed with that and planned to book the flight by himself:

And the travel agent noted that if he changed his mind to just let him know:

Shortly afterward Andy did just that:

And the travel agent recommended a place to get a nice kosher meal and booked him the originally proposed itinerary, flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on Friday early morning instead of Saturday.

Fast forward to 2 days ago. The travel agent is in Israel and reads this email once Shabbos is over. The email was sent after shabbos, at 7:15pm Beijing time/1:15pm Israel time:

And the travel agent wrote back, equally in shock at the realization of Shabbos saving his client’s life:
