A laptop ban on flights from Europe possible 'within two weeks'

If you turn Europe into Eurabia then this sort of thing will be a consequence...

The EU has demanded urgent talks with the US over a possible extension of its ban on laptops in cabin bags to flights from some European airports.

Major US airlines met with US Homeland Security officials yesterday to discuss the impact of extending the ban, which has applied since March to flights from 10 airports - mainly in the Middle East and north Africa - to flights from Europe.

"We'll likely expand the restrictions," said a Department of Homeland Security spokesman David Lapan, but the department has given no indication of when this will happen. A US official said it could begin within two weeks while a source in Europe said it may even be implemented as early as this week.

The UK has introduced a similar electronics ban in cabin bags on flights from Turkey and selected countries in north Africa and the Middle East.

"We have not made any decisions on expanding the electronics ban; however, we are continuously assessing security directives based on intelligence and will make changes when necessary to keep travelers safe," the Transportation Security Administration said in a statement.

Apparently the US fears passengers could circumvent the current ban by travelling from the Middle East to Europe and then taking a connecting flight to the US. The current UK electronics ban does not include flights from Dubai and certain other countries on the US banned list. So the UK could extend their ban to Dubai and the others or they could just accept that we're now part of Eurabia and will be treated as such by the non Islamised world.
