NEW YORK (Worthy News)– U.S. air carriers Delta Air Lines and US Airways said they have halted flights to Israel to ensure passenger safety.

Delta said in a statement that it has suspended operations "until further notice" to and from Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv and its hub at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport. The Atlanta-based carrier said it was doing so in coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration "to ensure the safety of our customers and employees."

Esther Castiel, who heads US Airways' operations in Tel Aviv, said the FAA had "issued a request not to travel to Israel. All U.S. carriers are stopping." — Source

    Revelation 22:10-11
    10And he said to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, because the time is near.
    11“He who does wrong, let him do more wrong; he who is filthy, let him be more filthy; he who is righteous, let him be more righteous; he who is set-apart, let him be more set-apart.

    Shame on the FAA for their Israel boycott. Megan Kelly bought up a good point. Planes fly over Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the Ukraine, but they can't fly over Israel? Come on. We see through your political agenda. It began at Delta, which means Delta is on a no-fly list with me forever. Israel is the only friend we have in the Middle East, and we are lousy friends in return. They've said it several times: They're on the front lines for all of us. We're the big Satan to these lunatics. Israel is just the little Satan. Do people really think these terrorists aren't in our country and planning the same sort of destruction for us that they plan for Israel? "Palestinians" are winning their propaganda war. It's their greatest weapon. I can't believe people fall for it. If Hamas wouldn't place their missiles in schools, hospitals, and playgrounds, they wouldn't lose so many children. But they want their children to die so they can drag them out for the liberal media and wail about how evil Israel is, when it's they who got them killed in the first place. Israel needs to continue doing what they're doing.
