US flights to Israel to resume after brief ban. Will European carriers follow suit?
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.
“Hamas does have rockets that can reach Ben Gurion airport... although the accuracy of their rockets does remain limited,” State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said.
Israel had warned of the economic impact of the ban by many world airlines and said that it would be a win for Hamas, who hailed the suspension as a “great victory.”
Delta, United and US Airways all cancelled their scheduled flights for Wednesday, as did a raft of European carriers including Germany’s Lufthansa, Air France, Poland’s LOT and others. It is unclear as of now whether or not they will follow suit in lifting the ban.
This was nothing but more Obama pressure to punish Israel and reward his Muslim Brotherhood murderer buddies. The man is pure evil.
Methinks Mossad let it be known they will dump what they have on Dear Leader if he did not show mre “flexibility”
Cruz did it.

Some of the truth tellers like Andrew McCarthy and Judge Mukasey have helped, also.

Yes, they were definitely afraid of a further increase in the credibility that Ted Cruz is building with Americans in general and with the Republican base in particular.
They were cutting their losses that came from their stupid decision to forbid flights.
Cruz, opened his mouth and gee now it’s safe to land in Israel.
