Civilian airliner Malaysian flight 370 as new age terrorism

I've been calling it "terrorism of unknown etiology". Malaysian airline flight 370 is a civilian Boeing 777 aircraft and it has disappeared because somebody with extraordinary flight expertise hijacked the airplane for a specific purpose. What's the purpose of this terrorist act?

Of course, conspiracy theories already about about how and why the flight disappeared. Any reasonable or logically thinking person would surmise the obvious, being the airplane is now at the bottom of the Indian Ocean, having run out of fuel. But, that logic is too simple. Whoever hijacked the flight had a very nefarious purpose beyond sabotage, murder and suicide. At the outset, I maintained an Iranian connection to the hijacking. In the absence of evidence to counter my opinion, my theory is as reliable as any other. Somebody wanted the airplane to use for a strategic purpose. Suppose Iran could use the civilian airplane to slide past Israeli security and, like the proverbial Trojan Horse, land a missile right in the Ben Gurion Airport

At least one report is describing an Israeli response to the disappearance of the Malaysian aircraft.  


As the possibility--however remote--grows that Malaysia Airlines flight 370 may have been hijacked and taken to a hidden location, Israeli authorities are preparing for the possibility that the hijackers might attempt to use the Boeing 777 to mount an attack. 

Times of Israel, Israel's Channel 2 has revealed reports that Israeli air defenses have been boosted, and approaching civilian aircraft will be asked to identify themselves far earlier.

Though the flight was presumed at first to have crashed, whole or in pieces, into the ocean, passive satellite transmissions from the aircraft suggest that it made a deliberate course change and may have headed north into central Asia.

Pakistan has said the flight never registered on its radar, but at least one expert suggested the flight could have landed in Bangladesh, whose air defenses presumably would be weaker.

Though the possibility that the Boeing 777 could be used in a terror attack is mere speculation, it is evidently being taken seriously by Israel. A plane filled with nuclear material would not need to be in Israeli airspace long to do catastrophic damage, even if shot down. There are no reports yet that the U.S. is taking similar measures, and U.S. officials have suggested recently that the likeliest fate of flight 370 was a crash into the Indian Ocean.

Nevertheless, the disappearance of flight 777 has opened a new error in terrorism surveillance. This terrorism with no known etiology will evolve until the world finally unites in opposition to the evil lurking among radical zealots, intent on killing people without regard for how civilization will be destroyed as a result of their heinous acts.
