And my response? While I appreciate the email, I completely disagree with this viewer. I believe the FAA issued its ban for safety and security reasons and those alone. I do not believe it was to punish or be coercive.
It is my opinion that Obama is secretly using this current FAA Ban as a punitive coercive action against Israel. Maybe Bloomberg, who flew in to Tel Aviv airport safely, can get his friend Obama to rescind the FAA directive and allow flights to again fly into Israel. The only one this looney FAA Ban helps is the Hamas terrorists — I.e., Hamas now knows how it can stop Democracies — closing airports!
