Flytilla people did not get a refund of their ticket payment

Barry Rubin Reports

On April 15, approximately 600 activists paid about $750 each for tickets to fly to Israel to demonstrate against that country’s existence. In almost all cases, they were prevented from boarding the aircraft. Airlines are legally responsible for not allowing passengers to board international flights who will be refused entry at the point of arrival. The tickets were not refunded. That means that about a half million dollars were thrown away in “supporting” the Palestinians. Imagine if that same amount had been provided for some productive purpose like improving medical care. So the activists got a thrill and did nothing but waste time and money for absolutely no return but an ego trip.

    I still think that what Israel should have done is let them in; and then strand them in the West Bank for a few months, by telling them they can only leave through Jordan.

    What I think Israel should have done was send the swine to Gaza one way only. Being swine, they would have felt safe knowing no one there would want to eat them.

  2. Good to know those whorish fools lost their money; they need to do something good with their time and money!

    Not like they ever would, but they could start supporting Israel!

  3. The passenger did not pay for the tickets out of their pockets.
    And there is plenty more wherever it came from.
    The airlines deserve to keep the money for a work well done!

    Did the airlines get to keep the money?
