Rockets, airports, image and economies


Further to my blog on bans (or not) on flying into Tel Aviv while there are rockets firing in the area,  here is an excerpt from an article in the Washington Post posted Wednesday by authors Anne Gearan, Sudarsan Raghavan and William Booth:

“Ordinary Israelis were upset with the United States and accused the Americans of cowardice after the Federal Aviation Administration, nervous that Hamas rockets have landed near Israel’s main airport, extended a ban on U.S. commercial flights to Tel Aviv. The decision was bad news for a small, image-conscious country such as Israel whose economy relies on international trade and tourism.”

There’s a message here about the leverage airlines have over the madness into which the world is sinking.
