Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

On The Low-Down With Delta Airlines

According to its website Atlanta-based Delta Airlines flies to the following destinations in the Middle East:

'Bahrain; Egypt; Iran, Islamic Republic of; Iraq; Israel; Jordan; Kuwait; Lebanon; Occupied Palestinian Territory; Oman; Qatar; Saudi Arabia; Syrian Arab Republic; United Arab Emirates (composed of Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras El Khaimah, Sharjah, Umm Al Qaiwain); Yemen, Republic of; Kazakhstan; Kyrgyzstan; Uzbekistan'

"Occuped Palestinian Territory"?  What airport would that be, then?

Is Delta implying that Ben-Gurion Airport, Tel Aviv, is on occupied territory?

As the British satirical magazine Private Eye might say, "shome mishtake shurely" ...

  1. Delta last year also said they would not allow people with Israeli visas on their airlines because of their agreement with Saudi Airlines...cause quite the stir let me tell you..

  6. They don't land in "Palestine" they just open the door and kick you out. Which seems fair.
