"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Sorry - you get on an airliner and you are, for the duration of the flight, bound by the flag nations laws. Think of them as mini, flying embassies.

You fly from American soil, you are bound to US laws.   Kuwaiti Airways can take its happy ass somewhere else if it doesn't like our laws.

Actually - just no. The instant the undercarriage leaves the runway, you are bound by both the flag nations law and sea law (basically captain says and you do it).

I would point out my beloved wife does this for a living and takes an exam on it every single year.

We'll see how the lawsuit turns out. 

I don't really care.  Why a Jew would want to fly on a Muzzie airline is beyond me.

Wow. I have never seen this side of you. What a crazy, racist? ignorant thing to say.

Racist?  What's racist or even crazy about not wanting to be around people who don't want you around?  If the dumbasses as Kuwaiti Air don't accept Israeli passports, they don't want Jews on their airline.

Believe it or not but I actually like you. And I respect you.
 
Even though you do not know it, what you said translates to, "Why the hell would a Black want to ride on a White bus anyway? What is wrong with those people?"
 
I know you are not racist, and I know you did not mean that. But that 'is' what you said.
 
Instead of identifying the problem, and address that, you are advising avoidance, as if to say the problem is with the Jew instead of the people who are stigmatizing him.
