Israeli lady filed a case against Kuwait Airways

February 7, 201557 Comments

istitledA woman from New York is embarking on what could be a groundbreaking challenge to a law in Kuwait that prohibits Israeli citizens from flying on Kuwait Airways.

She has now filed a lawsuit against airline.  “Of course I didn’t expect that to happen,” Iris Eliazarov said. “Especially living in New York, in America, where it’s all about freedom.” Eliazarov didn’t want a civil rights battle, she just wanted to go from JFK to London with her husband. But an airline employee told her she wasn’t going anywhere.  “‘There’s no way you’re getting on that flight,’ and I said ‘Why not?'” she said. “And he said, ‘Because you have an Israeli passport.'”

Iris travels with an Israeli passport, but her husband, David Nektalov, is American. He stepped in, but got the same response. He’s like, ‘No, I’m serious, she’s not getting on that plane,” he said. “I’m like, ‘C’mon, don’t do this to us. You can’t discriminate against us.’ He’s like, ‘Listen, she’s not getting on that plane. The couple had booked their trip on Kuwait Airlines, which is owned by the government of Kuwait, the same country the United States liberated in 1991 after Iraq invaded it. But Kuwait does not recognize Israel, and that means they don’t recognize Eliazarov’s passport.

“He did apologize, but he didn’t seem like he wanted to help us in any way,” she said. The airline booked her on a different airline, but refused to re-book her husband. They had to travel separately, and they felt that a lawsuit was necessary. “I do want them to change their policy, because I don’t think anyone should go through what I went through,” Eliazarov said. “I want their laws, their rules to change,” Nektalov said. “If they want to service Americans, they want to make money, they have to go by American laws.” But it’s not altogether clear if Kuwait Airlines violated any American laws. The airline is contesting the lawsuit, though they refused to talk with Eyewitness News about the matter.

  23. Insignificant life miserable or difficult, maybe you should reconsider your choice in residence.

  24. @Tanveer Sid,,,,You seem to have some sort of complex against the Palestinian community. I'm sure that comes from the bitterness of being a second class citizen in your current status quo. Your prejudice and ignorance against them is duly noted. As for the propaganda you want to reinforce about an entire community and population disrespecting the hand that feeds them, it seems to me you are doing the same. If your distaste for the Arab community who is undermining the comfort level of the 1.8 billion others then leave. Why surround yourself with our pride or self-respect. God knows you're probably not used to that. You don't respect the decision not to allow Israelis board then go to try Israelis please! They are also in humane to their own… Including the African Jews who go there and ask for amnesty. As far as the Israelis being a super power, well if that is by means of artillery and arsenal, that's only because MY government, the U.S., who is a superpower gives them that ability. You have quite the nerve, as a Muslim as far as I can tell, to criticize those Palestinians who are protecting and defending the 3rd holiest place in Islam. While u sit in your chair at work in a country full of Arabs who have made your

  25. Amazing to read so many comments full of hatred. And you wonder why our world is going crazy , it's no surprise with people like you all.
    pig, fuckin shit, bitch ……etc etc……..waouu she deserves so much !!!! Don't forget one very important fact, she was flying in USA NOT in the middle east !!! Would any one of you accept flying in the US to be canceled on a flight because of your race, color , religon or nationality ??
    You are so good in blamming everybody for what is happening in your part of the world, yes for sure it's so much better to do like this instead of facing the fact that you create all the shit going around , look at your arab world , look at the chaos there is in most of them !!!
    And don't think I am a jew, I am not , I don't care about religions, all I know is that religions are here to divide people and it is doing the job soooooooo well .

  26. Yaaaay kuwait ❤️ u kuwait

  27. You guys are idiot she's not traveling in your fuck'n Middle East country

  28. Ask your self this simple question… How many Kuwaitis do you know who have both Kuwait and American passports? Now, ask yourself why they have American passports.

  29. But kuwait airways will change thier law for just the sake of americans happiness .

  30. Does she really think they gonna change their rules for her to be happy? What a joke! Who asked her to book on that flight? None is changing the rules for an israeli pig.

  31. Jamal Ali says:

    Wow , "I do want them to change their policy, because I don’t think anyone should go through what I went through," Eliazarov said. "I want their laws, their rules to change," Nektalov said. "If they want to service Americans, they want to make money, they have to go by American laws." But it’s not altogether clear if Kuwait Airlines violated any American laws." Wait, who does she think she is to demand for change in the law of Kuwait? Who asked her to book ticket at Kuwait airways. This is Kuwait and here we make the rules. She has no right to ask for any change of rules in Kuwait, unless she is an Kuwaiti. She didn't bother to ask someone about the terms and conditions about Israelis in Kuwait before she booked the ticket or what? She should be burned. That's so stupid, asking to change the law of other country while you're not even residing there. Awkward. And she also says if we want american money, we must follow american laws? I don't support that statement at all, I say "If america wants Kuwaiti oil they better be good at us, do as we ask. Or you die hungry." We want a strong respond to israel from Kuwait. #FuckIsrael #FuckAmericanGovernment #KuwaitRespond

  33. Law is a law you have to respect

  34. Nesrein BakrWhere u in Kuwait when Kuwait was under sad dam for 7 months. I was here and saw the fiasco created by Palestinians. You can live in your fantasy land but the reality in ground is you Palestinians live under the sympathy of the world and Israel is a super power. If you can understand English I did not mention that Palestinians ruined the world. I am saying the Palestinian problem has caused problems for Muslims . OK. You can live in your fantasy land and get beaten up by a super power. This is not the time of David vs goliath where David won. You are weak and in u process of struggle made lot of enemies especially people who supported you once. The only point I want to make is to engage Israel and manage a dispute with it. If America asks Kuwait to compensate if this lady wins the case then Kuwait has no option but to surrender to the USA power. So better the showing empty arrogance like what Palestinians showed and got I Kuwait should show maturity and resolve this issue. Nesrein you can go back to your fairy tale land continue to fight israel with empty arrogance and pay the price or burry your false pride and get a reality check and accept that israel is never going to give up an inch of land and look for other options .

  38. Hats off Kuwait air lines.special thanks.

  39. Brave kuwait airline thank u . Welldone

  40. Please! Don't try to portray your twisted version of the facts! You have no moral or legal leg to stand on! Palestinians have not ruined the world! Look up Zionism and its effects on the global scale… If you can read properly, then we can debate.

  41. Carrying an israeli passport and begging to fly on Kuwait airline.. go use your piece somewhere else where it works rather than suing some whole airline, nothing gonna happen no rules gonna change, most of the Islamic countries in the world don't recognize israel and its passport and you know the reason for this, israel invaded Palastine and there is no its own territory on the globe whatever they conquered that is by evacuating Palestinians by force and war,
    Look lady i will tell you an easy way to get rid of this problem , change up your nationality and you will be in ease. This is some bullshit living in America gives you the authority to let other change their laws ? oh comon.. seems like invading Afghanistan and Iraq… get a life there… live and let other live and you better respect rules and regulations of countries other than just America….

  42. Palestinians also did the same what israel is doing to them during invasion of kuwait. I dont know whether u were here during the invasion of kuwait by saddam. Palestinians went like a mad dog against the very people who provided them land money financial help and brotherly love. Not islamic but arab love . In spite of what had happened kuwait continues to support their cause. Anyways you people have to accept that israel is a global superpower and u cannot boycott a superpower. If u do that it is u r loss and u r seeing that in todays world how muslims are being treated. As far as palestinian problem is concerned it has caused muslims more harm then good on global scale. 1.8 billion muslims are suffering because of a few millions palestinians. When muslims are the weakest community in this world today then we have to behave like one. If not they will be bombed suppressed and abused around the world.

  43. She is very lucky to go without a slap for dirty mouth. This lady is fucking shit

  44. This happens to Palestinians on a daily basis inside their own country… Israel denies them entry and exit so what's your opinion on that????

  45. Should kick out to her with luggage.

  46. Many Israelis carrying American passport are inside gulf and even going inside haram Al shareif. So I think gulf carriers going global have to rethink their strategy during this changing times when it comes to Israel.

  47. Should had slapped the israeli woman on the face and dump her luggage all over the run way.

  48. Do Israeli airline let Arabs fly on their airlines ??? ALA'L even don't let passengers get close to their check in counter !!! This is very funny issue from this lady !!!!
