Aircraft, like ships, are sometimes named after people or cities. Given what Delta Airlines has just done, perhaps they should name one of their aircraft after Adolf Hitler.
What has Delta done?
Delta is adding Saudi Arabia’s national airline, Saudi Arabian Airlines to its SkyTeam Alliance. This is going to force Delta to stop Jews and anyone holding an Israeli passport from boarding their flight to Jeddah.
Why any Jews would want to go to Saudi Arabia is another story. The Saudi kingdom has achieved the Nazi dream of being Judenfrei, or free of Jews.
Saudi Arabia denies entry to Jews or anyone with an Israeli entry or exit visa stamp on their passport. This is not shocking since Saudi Arabia is an Islamic country and Islam repeatedly admonishes its followers to kill the Jews (along with the infidels).
Why does Delta Airlines think this is a good idea? Why does Delta Airlines think that associating with an Airline and a company that practices discrimination, racism and ethnic cleansing?
Would Delta Airlines fly aircraft with a swastika on the tail? So if they would not do that, why are they associating themselves with a company and an airline that is the moral equivalent of the Nazis?
What is next for Delta? Are they going to start restricting Jewish passengers? Perhaps a yellow Star of David on their boarding passes? Perhaps Jews can now only fly second class on Delta. Perhaps Jews can fly in the back of the plane.
When will Americans start standing up to this non-sense?
Americans have in the past. In 1975, the country was in a recession and then California Governor Edmund Brown (father of current governor Jerry Brown) looked around to see what he could do. Saudi Arabia was in the middle of a building boom and he made arrangements for 200 California state employees to go to work in Saudi Arabia. During the negotiations, the Saudi’s insisted there be no “Zionists” in the group. After going around with the Saudis for a week, they finally figured out “Zionists” referred to anyone who was Jewish. Governor Brown told the Saudis where they could go and how they could get there.
What is next for Delta and this creeping Sharia law?
Jews are not the only ones persecuted by Islam. Infidels, in other words, anyone who is not Muslim, is also discriminated against. What is Delta going to do about that? Are they going to require clothing restrictions so that the Islamists are not offended? Are they going to ban religious literature and other items from being carried on to flights?
Enough is enough. If Delta wants to get in bed with the Saudis and the Islamists, then it is time Americans be done with Delta.
I, for one, am not going to fly Delta again. I have many other choices. I’ll even fly the worst airline, US Airways, before I will fly Delta. I am going to send Delta a letter today explaining that as long as they are in business with Saudi Arabian Airlines, I will not be doing any business with them. I hope the rest of you will join me in doing this.
The other thing I am going to do is I am going to buy a share of Delta Airlines. Delta is a publically traded company. By buying a share, I become a shareholder and I am going to go to the next shareholder’s meeting and raise this issue. As of this morning, Delta is currently trading at $9.59 a share. It isn’t that expensive. If enough shareholders raise hell about this, Delta can be made to reverse its course on this.
This is a fight we ought to take on. This is a fight we can win and start fighting back and winning against creeping Islamism and Sharia.
anyone who puts themself in harms' way for my sake should get everything 'free',
Thank you for this report, I will make sure everyone I know hears about this and boycotts Delta Airlines.
Just received this reply from Delta:
Thank you for sharing your concerns regarding Saudi Arabian Airlines and
their participation in the SkyTeam alliance.
We certainly understand the concerns expressed in your communication and
I appreciate this opportunity to emphasize that Delta Air Lines does not
discriminate nor do we condone discrimination against any of our
customers in regards to age, race, nationality, religion, or gender.
Additionally, please know Delta does not operate service to Saudi Arabia
and does not codeshare with any airline on flights to that country.
Delta does not intend to codeshare or share reciprocal benefits, such as
frequent flier benefits, with Saudi Arabian Airlines, which we have
confirmed with SkyTeam, an Amsterdam-based 14-member global airline
Delta’s only agreement with Saudi Arabian Airlines is a standard
industry interline agreement, which allows passengers to book tickets on
multiple carriers, similar to the standard interline agreements American
Airlines, US Airways and Alaska Airlines have with Saudi Arabian
Airlines. All of the three global airline alliances – Star, which
includes United Airlines; oneworld, which includes American Airlines,
and SkyTeam, which includes Delta – have members that fly to Saudi
Arabia and are subject to that country’s rules governing entry.

Hay, In the real world Delta is after some of the Muslim World's money. If a person flies civilian airlines to a Muslim country be sure to not have a Bible or a small New Testament.
