Dem Politician Appointed by Obama Defends Muslim Airline that Bans Israeli Jews
Frontpage Mag ^ | 04/24/2014 | Daniel Greenfield

In late 2013, a formal complaint was filed with the U.S. Secretary of Transportation (Secretary) alleging illegal discrimination by Kuwait Airways (KA) on the basis of national origin, in violation of federal law proscribing such discrimination by air carriers. The complaint concerned the airline’s refusal to transport Israeli nationals on nonstop flights from New York to London.

The Secretary denied the complaint earlier this year, asserting that KA had not violated any U.S. anti-discrimination law because the airline is required to comply with Kuwaiti law, which prohibits Israeli passport holders from entering Kuwait. As the attorney now pursuing this matter correctly articulated, “In essence, the Secretary determined that Kuwait Airways did not violate U.S. law because that airline was required by Kuwaiti law to discriminate against Israeli nationals.” . . . . .

How far will Obama, Foxx and Holder go in defending Islamic bigotry?

Kuwait.

The civilized world rallied to free Kuwait from Hussein (the Iraqi Hussein)?

But now — Kuwait wants to be at odds with civilization.

While I generally abhor this sort of discrimination I’d be willing to let it slide this time if other airlines could ban Arab Muslims in return.

Kuwait Airlines should NOT be allowed to fly to the US if they ban Jews...

Great post. I was going to say the same thing, but you beat me to it.

An American administration with some sense of morality and decency in its foreign policy would remind Kuwait that, if not for the United States intervention on their behalf, there would be no Kuwait today.

You might think that - plus continued American aid - could possibly be used as leverage in persuading the Kuwaiti airline to change their policies toward Israeli passengers. But this is the regime of "Osama" Obama, where the Secretary of State speaks of Israel as an "apartheid state." 'Nuff said!

Yousuf Mindkar, the director of public health at the Kuwaiti health ministry, told Al Rai that he wants to use a “gay detector test” to keep LGBT expatriates out of Kuwait and other Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC).

Even if you abhor the gay lifestyle, you could call this idea almost funny by the way that it demonstrates the absurdity of Arab Muslim "scientific" thinking.

So in order to avoid bringing Israeli Jews to Kuwait, it is necessary to refuse to fly them to London. I see. Makes perfect sense./s

Obama’s outlook, worldview, foreign policies and hardcore belief system was plain to see for all in his first two years in the White House:

1) Weakening American-Israeli bond (all allies’ bonds)
2) Strengthen American-Islamic (Brotherhood) bond
3) Capitulate to Russia, China, and other Axis of Evil nations
4) Apologize whenever, to whom ever to other nations for American Exceptionalism - atone for Bush years.
5) Look good and cool doing all of above.

This loss of world power is our own undoing. Obama went from “Power Projection” to “Power Avoidance”.

From Tough Power to Soft Power
From US engagement to US Isolationism
From tough stance to RESET with the Russkies
From supporting allies to keeping them in doubt
From resilience to frailness
From Superpower status to Lichtenstein status
From Can do to buddy can you spare a dime
From Proud nation to mumbling knee shaking nation
From proud and erect to hunched over bowing
From determined to apologetic

We are nearly done for now...thank you voting public for putting this man-child int he White House...twice!!
