Illinois Senator wants FAA to investigate Delta’s Saudi deal

An update on Delta’s sharia airline deal. via Sen. Kirk wants FAA to investigate alleged religious discrimination by Delta – The Hill’s Transportation Report.

Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk (R) called Friday for the Federal Aviation Administration to investigate allegations Delta Airlines blocked Jewish passengers from flying as part of an agreement with a Saudi Arabian airline.

“I am deeply concerned by the June 23, 2011, report in USA Today entitled ‘U.S. Jews not able to fly on Delta flights to Saudi Arabia,'” Kirk wrote in a letter to FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt.  “If true, this policy appears to violate the U.S. Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause while undermining the purpose of the Federal Aviation Administration – to promote the safety and expansion of U.S. civil aviation.

“I request your investigation into this matter to determine whether Delta Airlines violated U.S. law or regulation and to ensure no U.S. citizen is denied their right to fly solely on the basis of their religion,” he continued. “Since a core mission of the FAA is to promote civil aviation, I would expect the FAA to use its full statutory and regulatory power to ensure that America’s civil airways are not restricted for persons regardless of faith.”

Delta sought to tamp down the controversy before Kirk’s letter, taking to its blog on the company’s website to respond to the report.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabian also moved Friday to try to dispel the rumors, saying in a statement that “rumors being circulated via the Internet regarding passenger flight restrictions on Saudi Arabian Airlines are completely false.

“The Government of Saudi Arabia does not deny visas to U.S. citizens based on their religion,” the Saudi statement said.

Is Delta claiming that if Saudi law is discriminatory and Delta is contracted with the Saudi’s that they have to discriminate and can claim they aren’t?

Would Delta ban the hijab on flights to France?

  1. Back off, Senator! Have you evaluated possible outcomes? The most likely is that Congress wastes a lot of time and money. How can anyone expect Saudi Arabia to change it’s immigration laws? And how can anyone expect Delta to have any sway in the matter?
    Focus on fixing our economy and leave the Muslims to endure their self-imposed suffering.

    • Saudi Air should be banned from US air space and Delta should be shut down for religious discrimination!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! islam and sharia law should also be banned from the United States.

  2. Delta has extensive contracts with the federal government. Is this another path to understanding why this is being allowed.

    Be very, very careful here. If we Jews cannot be discriminated against to fly on any airline because of our religion, then NEITHER CAN MUSLIMS be discriminated against to fly on any airline because of their religion, either.

    Very sneaky move there, and once again we see how Islamo-Nazis are able to use US law to further their own cause.

    How can we possibly say that we can’t do that to Jews – yet say that we want to discriminate against Muslims? This won’t fly in our courts and wa-la, the Islamo-Nazis have tied our law system in a legal knot right there.

    Of course the fact that it’s always Muslims who blow up airplanes (Yassir Arafat the Muslim practically invented airline hijackings), and NOT Jews who do these things – guess what. That doesn’t matter. Even if this is the entire point, it doesn’t matter.

    So what’s the solution? Throw the Jews under the plane, so to speak, in order to also be able to say no to Muslims from flying?

    This is a perfect example of Sharia Muslims using our own laws against us for their own goals.
