British Airways continues to fly to Israel despite European and US airlines cancelling flights

British budget airline easyJet has joined European and American operators in scrapping flights to Israel after a Hamas rocket landed close to its Ben Gurion airport.

Air France, KLM and Germany's Lufthansa have also suspended flights to the war-torn country, as have US airlines Delta, United Airlines, and US Airways under orders from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

But a spokesman for British Airways said it was still continuing its twice-daily London Heathrow to Tel Aviv services, while 'monitoring the situation closely'.

If I were President, instead of cancelling flights to Israel, I would warn Hamas that if one of their rockets ever downs an airplane with an American citizen aboard, that I would send the U.S. Army to cleanse the Gaza Strip of everything that moves, and bury all the bodies in mass graves under the carcasses, blood, and entrails of a bunch of pigs. And it would stand as a warning to all the other filthy Muslim vermin that if any of them gave us in the U.S. any further trouble, I would do the same to them.
