Jews Not Welcome On Delta Airlines?

By Wyatt Earp | June 24, 2011

Delta Airlines has partnered with Saudi Arabian Airlines. As a result, Delta will now respect SA Airlines’ more despicable policies. Policies such as the one that precludes Jewish people from entering the Kingdom.

I don’t fly often, but when I do, you can be damned sure I won’t be flying Delta.

So, Jews can’t fly to Saudi Arabia. That’s long been a policy of The Kingdom. But this ban on Jews is being implemented by Delta. Delta will be the ones doing the paper-work and enforcing it at the gate. It’ll be on them. Also, on anyone carrying a cross. So, sort of evenhanded at least:

Jews and Israelis, or passengers carrying any non-Islamic article of faith, will not be able to fly Delta Air Lines flights from the U.S. to Saudi Arabia under Delta’s new partnership with Saudi Arabian Airlines.

After the expected uproar, USAToday pulled the article, citing “incomplete information,” but the original comments are still there. There is, however, a Religion post at USAToday that discusses this insanity. Keep some duct tape handy.

    If the saudis didn’t have all that oil under their desert, no one would give them the time of day.

    Robert B. – And like the rest of those countries, when the oil goes away, they will slip back to barbarism.

    It was fictional, but that’s what I found interesting about Gundam 00. All the power for everything on the planet was provided by orbital elevators collecting solar power and piping it down to earth. The Middle East was pretty much immediately screwed and turned into a bigger free for all than it already is. Don’t see a lot of the utopian ‘free energy’ sci fi works really delve into the political impacts of it.

    And Delta’s sucked for years. I would like to say “boycott”, but I haven’t flown with them since before 9/11.

    No matter how Delta spins this, they chose to add this service route to their offerings. They should be ashamed of them selves. I can’t honestly say I have ever flew Delta, but they will never be my choice now.

    Yet another place my luggage will inevitably go where I may not follow. Way to be a dick, Delta.

    Ranba – I won’t fly them anymore, that’s for sure.

    Danny – They released a statement chock full of backpedaling. The dollar – and subservience to the muzzies – is more important to their passengers.

    L4H – Nice how they discriminate against Jews and Christians, but they cater to Muslims.

    Sally Anne – Pretty despicable.

    Nobody, but nobody, goes to Saudi Arabia without a visa. The Kingdom only issues tourist visas for organized tour groups with a set itinerary. Delta will not be the one checking to see if a passenger is Jewish as they will be rejected by the SA embassy.

    Andrew Klavan has a really good :

    Give the Middle East Back to the Jews.

    The really really satisfying thought I have is that off the shore of Israel and lebanon just recently have been found oil reserves greater or equal to saudi arabia, not to mention huge natural gas discoveries. The saudis will in a few years even with their oil be rendered almost impotent.

    As for delta they have made a deal with the devil. Doesn’t matter if they personally won’t be denying Jews or Christians the right to fly, their new overlords do and by association they too aquiesce to this by not taking a stand on the side or freedom. We all know sooner or later
    as the saudis begin to own more and more shares of the conglomerate their increasing control will begin to influence flights and thus who flys and who doesn’t, more and more and more to ultimately…wherever.

    With the 4th of July approaching, our birthday, please reflect on whom that fledgling nations first outside enemy was, after england of course, thats right…mooselimbs.
    They have been a blight on this planet for 1400 years. A slow creeping cancer eating away at humanity and human values since their inception. Now that we have nukes
    I have a suggestion….

    PE – So it’s win-win for Delta. They can implement the despicable policy without having to get their hands dirty.

    Ferrell – Seconded!

    Jon – I saw that about the oil off Israel. Gotta be making the muzzies insane.

    Wonder if The Won’s sudden insistence on 1967 borders for Israel has anything to do with those oil fields. I can see the ‘mutually agreed upon land swaps’ they keep jabbering about taking out the rest of Israel’s coast…
