Has Delta Airlines Signed on to Anti-Jewish Saudi Policy?

The American Center for Law and Justice ACLJ), a conservative legal advocacy group, is targeting Delta Airlines’ new partnership with Saudi Arabian Airlines, charging that the venture serves to further discriminatory policies the Saudi passenger carrier has in place that targets Jews, Christians, and women. In January Delta announced its partnership with the Saudi airline, with Delta’s vice president, Charlie Pappas, saying he was “honored that Saudi Arabian [Airlines] has chosen to link its future growth and success with Delta and our SkyTeam partners, while bringing our alliance greater access to destinations across the Middle East.”

But as reported by World Net Daily, the partnership, part of Delta’s “SkyTeam Alliance,” may require the U.S. carrier “to ban Jews and holders of Israeli passports from boarding flights from New York or Washington bound for Jeddah.” The move prompted an outcry from ACLJ and others that the airline is participating in discriminatory Muslim-based “Shariah” law — all for the sake of a business deal.
