Elected Officials, Advocates Call on Department of Transportation and Port Authority to Enforce DOT Decision Prohibiting Kuwait Airways’ Discrimination Against Israeli Citizens.
 
WHAT:

The Lawfare Project, New York City Council Members Lancman, Greenfield, and Maisel, and others call on the Port Authority and the Department of Transportation (DOT) to enforce federal anti-discrimination laws and the anti-discrimination provisions of Kuwait Airways’ lease at JFK Airport to prevent the airline from continuing to refuse to sell tickets to Israeli citizens.

DOT has already determined that this policy violates federal law, and its practice violates the airline’s lease with the Port Authority. The Council Members and advocates publicly released a letter to DOT and the Port Authority requesting enforcement action or termination of Kuwait Airways’ lease and ability to fly out of JFK Airport.

STATEMENTS:

“I commend the Department of Transportation on reaching its just conclusion, and urge both the DOT and Port Authority to take all steps necessary to ensure that Kuwait Airways’ flagrant discrimination is not permitted in the United States.”

– Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice Chairman, Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations

“The Department of Transportation’s decision is a crucial step toward the elimination of unlawful discrimination in air travel and the protection of human rights. Now, it is imperative that DOT and the Port Authority staunchly enforce this decision such that Kuwait Airways ceases its deplorable conduct. All travelers within the United States should expect to be treated equally in our nation’s airports, regardless of their ethnicity or national origin.” – Brooke Goldstein, Director, The Lawfare Project

“The Arab League boycott, of which Kuwait Airways’ reprehensible practices are part and parcel, is discriminatory at its core. Like the modern-day BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement, the Arab League boycott and its offshoots are expressions of bigotry. This is precisely why the U.S. Congress and state governments have enacted anti-boycott legislation to protect individuals and entities who are singled out for unequal, punitive treatment based not on what they do, but on who they are.” – Professor Richard B. Stone, Former Chairman, Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations
 

Kuwait Airway’s action establishes an intolerable precedent for the airline industry. If an airline stated that it would not accept passengers with Mexican passports, people would justifiably claim discrimination against Hispanics. If an airline stated that it would not accept passengers with Saudi passports, people would justifiably claim discrimination against Muslim passengers. The same is true here, except that the discrimination is directed against citizens of the Jewish state. The Arab League boycott of Israel is a manifestation of religious intolerance, motivated by the Jewish nature of the State of Israel.

The illegal discrimination practiced by Kuwait Airways is inconsistent with our laws and our fundamental values as a nation. By its terms, the permit granted by the Department of Transportation to Kuwait Airways has lapsed because that airline is not in compliance with U.S. law. Therefore, the Department of Transportation must swiftly terminate all Kuwait Airways service between New York and London. Such termination is mandated by statute, and is fully consistent with Article 4 of the U.S.-Kuwait Air Transportation (“Open Skies”) Agreement.”

– Jeffrey Lovitky, Attorney at Law
 

“The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has a long tradition of doing the right thing.  Now that the U.S. Department of Transportation has determined that Kuwait Airlines’ policy of not selling tickets on flights to London to Israeli passport holders violates United States law, we call on the Port Authority to do the right thing here too and enforce the anti-discrimination provisions of its lease with Kuwait Airlines.” – Jeffrey A. Moerdler, Former Commissioner, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey

What’s next? GLOBAL INTIFADA: (coming way too soon to a town near you) These lowlifes have BIG Plans.

Michigan City Council is now All Muslim Majority

New Muslim Majority City Council in Michigan Warns, “Today we show the [non-Muslims] and everybody else….”

 

From AFSIIn the Middle East, the Muslims are moving the clock back to the seventh century, as they attempt to regain the glory of the early years of Islam. Today, Islam is on the march. ISIS, the Taliban, Hamas, Hezbollah are all the same thing, and make no mistake – all are bent on jihad and the destruction of western civilization.

The “Little Satan” – Israel – is the only bulwark keeping Islam from conquering Europe, by preventing a total Islamist takeover of the Middle East. Israel is buying Europe a little time. Alas, to its grave misfortune Europe is squandering the opportunity Israel is presenting it. Europe is importing hundreds of thousands of Muslims; people who will never integrate into European society, but who are creating parallel governments, education and social systems, with one aim: conquest. Forget bombs or a decades-long battle of the womb. Muslims are very quickly reaching critical mass in major cities throughout Europe, and only need to be a small percent of a society’s population before they are empowered to use their power. It is happening in front of our eyes.
 

Here in the United States, the Obama administration has made several pronouncements indicating a decision to take in and resettle at least 100,000 “refugees” from the Middle East.

If it goes ahead and is successful with this plan, woe is us.

 History DOES repeat itself as documented in these videos on the horrors of anti-semitism – Film maker Pierre Rehov has dedicated himself to exposing the murderous lies and anti-Semitism by recently making available these two important videos.

Closing thoughts, as the Global Warfare metastasizes and the THIRD Intifada continues. The Religion of “Peace” has struck AGAIN:

“the attack on france is what israel goes through daily for close to 70 years. when arafat turned down the bill clinton-brokered peace treaty (june, 2000) in which the palestinians got 98% of what they demanded (still, without recognizing israel!), arafat started the second intifada, in which 1000 israelis were blown up on a daily basis, in pizzeria’s, on buses, etc. Considering the population differences (israel has 7 million people, america, 325 million), that would be the equivalent of an uprising in this country where 50,000 people were killed. did you read that? every time 5 israelis are stabbed or murdered —which is an everyday occurrence — that’s the equivalent of it happening to 50 people in france.daily. and all obama and hillary and kerry and the EU and Ban at the UN can do is blame israel for building apartments in its own territory as the main cause for the worldwide terror. sure.” [seth swirsky]

“… isn’t it about time to rethink this whole diversity-for-the-sake-of-diversity nonsense?? How do we co-exist with crazed… lunatics?”
