Airlines Says Only Jews can Fly

The response to lack of security equipment is that only Jews can fly on a certain airline.

Jewish-only policy on Israeli flights?
A small airline reportedly allows only Jewish passengers on certain flights because of problems with baggage screening.

Acting on the advice of the Shin Bet security service, the Transportation Ministry decided that Arabs would not be allowed to travel on Tamir Flights planes because a financial dispute prevented the use of luggage-scanning machines, increasing the risk of terrorism, Ha’aretz reported.

Transportation Ministry officials told the newspaper they’re working to find a way for all passengers to fly.

Can you imagine the response to something like this in any other western nation?
