Kuwait Airways just cut off its nose to spite its face.
The airline cancelled its highly profitable flight from New York to London to avoid doing business with Israeli passengers.
According to the New York Post, Kuwait Airways pulled the flight from New York’s JFK Airport to London’s Heathrow Airport because Kuwait prohibits its citizens from doing business with citizens of the Jewish state.
The flight route from JFK to Heathrow is the busiest overall between an airport in the European Union and an airport outside it, according to Eurostat.
American officials threatened to pull the airline’s permit to fly to the United States if they continued discriminating against Israelis, so the airline nixed the flight altogether.
“If you’re so anti-Semitic that you would rather cancel a flight than provide service to Israeli passport holders, then good riddance,” New York City Councilman Rory Lancman told the New York Post, reportedly going on to reference the U.S.-led liberation of Kuwait from Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in 1991. “They should show some gratitude that they even have their dictatorial little half-assed country.”
The airline still has a flight from New York to Kuwait from JFK, the Post reports, adding that U.S. officials cannot require the company to allow Israelis on that flight because Israelis are not allowed in the country.

To the criminally insane any sane act is seen as criminal and insane. May Kuwait be blessed a thousand times more than all they lose by this most moral and just act.
Positive-ity in all thoughts. Love to all, even “them”.
Want to really hurt Israel, pull all your business out of NYC, as it’s the capitol of Israel.
Uh, that would be Boca Raton, Florida…….
