It has been reported and confirmed by delta airlines that they have partnered with saudi arabia to keep Jews from entering that country. In a statement by a spokesman for delta, the airline responded to questions concerning this issue by admitting that delta adheres to each country’s regulations regarding visa requirements, and since it is the saudi policy to exclude Jews, how unreasonable is to consider delta complicit? It has been also reported that delta confiscates any bible that might have been brought aboard planes headed for saudi arabia. Our “good friend” saudi arabia has long denied members of the Jewish religion easy entry into the country, and have forbidden any form of religious expression to our Jewish man and women in the military except in proscribed areas such as American bases. Why any Jew would wish to enter saudi arabia willingly is beyond reason.
Let us not forget that delta recently charged returning U.S. service men and women extra baggage fees for their luggage.
Either delta should consider not flying into saudi arabia or perhaps, Jewish Americans should find other more friendly carriers for their personal or business needs. It would be nice for our State Department to take a position on this matter, as well as the United States Congress. It would be useless to included obama who will be busy playing golf. After all it is the weekend and we all know with whom his own religious and political leanings lay.
