Author Claims MH370 Pilot Ditched Plane Into Ocean

PRIME Minister Tony Abbott has hinted that Flight MH370 may never be found as searchers prepare to start scouring a huge area of ocean off the coast of Western Australia.

His comments came as a New Zealand-based investigator suggested the pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane could have deliberately depressurised the cabin depriving those on board of air, then staged a controlled ditching into the Indian Ocean.

In his new book, veteran air accident investigator Ewan Wilson claims the “ditching” would explain why no debris from the plane has been found, with the aircraft sinking to the bottom of the ocean in one piece.

Wilson said he arrived at his shocking conclusion after considering every possible scenario.

He believes Captain Zaharie locked his copilot out of the cockpit, then survived long enough either by repressurising the aircraft or breathing his own more extensive air supply, to evade radar and execute his plan.

Wilson has not been able to provide any conclusive evidence to support his theory.

Speaking on ABC Radio in Brisbane this morning, Mr Abbott did not offer any assurance the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 would be located.

“They are now going to search the entire probable impact zone which is something like 60,000 square kilometres of the ocean floor off the coast of Western Australia,” Mr Abbott said.

“If the plane is down there and the best expert advice is that it did go into the water somewhere off the coast of Western Australia, if the plane is down there is a reasonable chance we’ll find it.”

He said his government was “determined to do the right thing by the Australian families who lost their loved ones in this plane, and determined to do the right thing by all bereaved families”.

“We’ve got a long way to go before we’re going to get this one up,” Mr Abbott cautioned.

“My understanding is they’re going to start (searching) in the next month or so but the search could take up to a year.”

Six Australian nationals were among 239 people on board the flight that disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8.

An earlier report by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau concluded that the passengers and crew may have died from hypoxia.

Dutchman returns Holocaust medal after family deaths in Gaza

The director of the Righteous Among the Nations department at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial Museum holds the 'Righteous Among The Nations,' medal, on September 30, 2013 in Jerusalem. The “Righteous Among the Nations” medal is for non-Jews who stood up to the Nazis in World War Two

A Dutchman honoured by Israel for hiding a Jewish child during World War Two has handed back his medal after six of his relatives were killed in an Israeli air strike on Gaza.

Henk Zanoli, 91, wrote to the Israeli embassy in The Hague to say he could no longer hold the honour.

He said an Israeli F-16 had destroyed his great-niece’s home in Gaza, killing all inside, in the recent offensive.

The Israeli embassy has declined to comment on Mr Zanoli’s action.

‘An insult’

Mr Zanoli and his mother were awarded the “Righteous Among the Nations” honour by Israel in 2011 for helping to shelter a Jewish child from the Nazis in their family home from 1943-45.

The award is accorded to non-Jews who risked their lives to protect and save Jews during the Holocaust.

However, Mr Zanoli said in a letter published by Israel’s Haaretz newspaper that “to hold on to the honour granted to me by the State of Israel under these circumstances, would be an insult… to those in my family, four generations on, who lost no less than six of their relatives in Gaza.”

A picture taken on 20 July 2014, from the southern Israeli-Gaza border shows smoke billowing from buildings following an Israeli air strike on Gaza City. The UN says more than 2,000 people – mostly Palestinian civilians – have died in recent fighting between the Israeli military and Palestinian militants in Gaza

“The great-great grandchildren of my mother have lost their grandmother, three uncles, an aunt and a cousin at the hands of the Israeli military,” he wrote, referring to an air strike by the Israeli military on 20 July.

His great-niece is a Dutch diplomat who is married to Palestinian economist Ismail Ziadah, who was born in a refugee camp in central Gaza.

Mr Ziadah’s mother, three brothers, a sister-in-law and nine-year-old nephew were all killed after their family home was hit by Israeli aircraft.

Mr Zanoli, a retired lawyer, offered sharp criticism of Israel’s Operation Protective Edge offensive, warning that such actions could lead to possible convictions of “war crimes and crimes against humanity”.

Israel has defended its offensive in Gaza, saying its forces had gone to “unprecedented lengths to keep Palestinians out of harm’s away” by issuing warnings via text message, telephone and leaflet dropping.

Mr Zanoli has faced his own share of family tragedy after losing his father at a Nazi concentration camp and a brother-in-law who was killed for his role in the Dutch resistance during World War Two.

“Against this background it is particularly shocking and tragic that today, four generations on, our family is faced with the murder of our kin in Gaza. Murder carried out by the State of Israel,” he wrote in the letter addressed to Israeli ambassador Haim Davon.

He was reportedly too frail to hand the medal back in person, but instead sent it to the Israeli embassy in the Netherlands.

MB Khalid urged to sack Anwar as economic adviser

KUALA LUMPUR: Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim has been urged to sack Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim from the state economic adviser’s post.

The call was made by Kulim-Bandar Baharu member of parliament Datuk Zulkifli Noordin, who also called on Khalid to sack PKR secretary-general Datuk Saifuddin Nasution from his post as state political communications officer.

“He (Khalid) should also swing the axe on all government- linked company chairmen, general managers, board di rectors who are from PKR and DAP.

“Khalid should appoint at least another six Selangor assemblymen from Pas to fill up the empty state executive councillor posts,” Zulkifli said in a statement yesterday.

He added that once the next state legislative assembly sitting was held, Khalid should immediately dismiss its speaker Hannah Yeoh, who is from DAP, and her two deputies.

“The new speaker should be someone who is not affiliated to any political parties, like a former Federal Court judge, for example,” Zulkifli pointed out.

“Also, if the Selangor local councillors from PKR and DAP are adamant on supporting their respective parties to throw Khalid out the door, then they, too, should be booted.”

He also urged Khalid to reveal to the public if Anwar, his cronies and his family had benefited from any projects or monetary rewards during Khalid’s tenure as Selangor MB.

“I hope the Pas top leadership will be resolute in its decision to support Khalid (to remain as MB). They must not be influenced in PKR or DAP when they make their official stand on the matter,” Zulkifli added.
