Having lived through WWII, having good friends, neighbors and business associates who are Jews, having met survivors of Hitler's death camps, having joined with other people of good will in a pledge to "never let it happen again" and having heard Islamists deny that the Holocaust ever happened, I am saddened to learn that a once-great American company like Delta Airlines has willingly entered into a business arrangement with Saudi Arabian Airlines in which Delta put itself in the position of having to enforce the Saudis' hateful policies against American Jews. Delta's defense that they must enforce the laws of Saudi Arabia fall on deaf ears because they entered into this agreement willingly just to make a few extra dollars.

I will never again fly on Delta until they void this agreement and apologize for their mistake. And to my Moslem-American friends, I ask that you also speak out against this hate. When American Moslems are silent on these things, other Americans see that as support for the radical fundamentalists.
