Religious Nuts wrapped in Plastic on a Plane because dead People

„When it comes to bullshit, big-time, major league bullshit, you have to stand in awe. In Awe! Of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims, Religion. No contest.“ (George Carlin) Aber hey! Immerhin hat der Mann seine Religion mit 'nem Stück Plastik gehackt, ist ja auch was!

Kohens are prohibited from flying over cemeteries ("A kohen initially was not supposed to approach any dead body, and if he did so he became ritually impure"), which as you can imagine, could be a major problem for travel. According to Haaretz, Rabbi Yosef Shalom Eliashiv, the leader of the Lithuanian Haredi community in Israel, "found a solution to this issue, ruling that wrapping oneself in thick plastic bags while the plane crossed over the cemetery is permissible."
