The US national aviation authority has lifted a ban on American flights to Israel, but warned of a “very fluid situation” amid intense fighting with Palestinians in nearby Gaza, AFP reports Thursday.
“The FAA has lifted its restrictions on US airline flights into and out of Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport by canceling a Notice to Airmen it renewed
earlier today,” the Federal Administration Agency said in a statement.
Officials had initially renewed a formal ban on American flights to Israel Wednesday, until 1615 GMT on Thursday, and around the world many other airlines took their own precautions.
Hooey. The Obama FAA imposed the ban to put pressure on Israel. They thought their media hacks would be able to fly cover for them, until….
And so they caved. They couldn’t answer the questions about the FAA ban. It would have been a huge scandal if they had.
But Ted Cruz did this, no matter how much they try to blow him off as a “conspiracy nut.”
He called them on it, and they backed down.
If American Jews were honest about supporting Israel’s right to exist, they’d line up to vote for Cruz. But they won’t. Because they don’t.
