OK, so it turns out that Delta Airlines does not have a "no Jew" policy.
The confusion stems from this article on the right-wing website WorldNetDaily. (To give you an idea: these are the people who thought Barack Obama's birth certificate was forged.)
On June 22, WND reported that Delta's partnership with Saudi Arabian Airlines "would require the American carrier to ban Jews" from flights to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The story quoted the wife of a Republican congressman complaining that Delta would be "the first Shariah-compliant airline in the United States."
Shockingly, this turned out not to be true. But that didn't stop the story from spreading. It got picked up by Religion News Service and other outlets, and pretty soon Delta was getting denounced by the Anti-Defamation League.
Delta pushed back, explaining that it does not discriminate against Jews. Religion News Service then corrected and retracted its initial report. USA Today, which had briefly posted the RNS report, clarified the misunderstanding. The story became a learning exercise in how misinformation spreads online, and then it pretty much went away.
Until Paul Koretz got wind of it. He's more than a month late to the party, but he's making up for his tardiness with a strong dose of righteous indignation:
It is very disturbing to learn from the media that Delta Airlines has adopted the so-called "No Jew Policy" of Saudi Arabian Airlines. Delta will add Saudi Arabian Airlines to its SkyTeam Alliance of partnering companies and would require Delta to ban Jews and holders of Israeli passports from boarding flights to Saudi Arabia.So this nonsense has now migrated across the political spectrum, from its right-wing origins to the left-wing L.A. City Council. And Paul Koretz is behaving like your crazy uncle who won't stop forwarding conspiratorial emails to you, even after they've been debunked on Snopes.
