From the Israeli captains emotional greeting in Arabic upon takeoff in Tel Aviv, to the warm Emirati reception on the ground in scorching Abu Dhabi, it was obvious this was no typical flight.
Mondays El Al flight LY971 marked the first-ever direct flight from Israel to the United Arab Emirates, placing a significant stamp on this months historic U.S.-brokered deal to normalize relations between the two nations.
The journey was steeped in symbolism. U.S. and Israeli flags adorned the tarmac at Ben-Gurion Airport as Israeli music played, and the word peace was emblazoned in English, Hebrew and Arabic above the cockpit window of the Boeing 737. On board, the Making History motto featured prominently on each seats headrest covering and complimentary fabric bags of the Abraham Accord Inaugural Flight were distributed.

RE: El Al Flight LY971 to Abu Dhabi Was No Typical Air Journey
IT WENT THROUGH SAUDI ARABIAN AIRSPACE !
This has never happened in Israel aviation history before and indicates that after the peace deal with the UAE, Saudi Arabia, the Center of Muslim worship, could be next!
Obama Biden led the ground work for this to happen
As what, baggage handlers?
Yeah, I believe Obama’s plan involved more SAM missiles.
In a way they did with the Iran deal. The rest of the Middle East had its collective butts pucker because Iran has hegemonic aspirations. The Jews are 1000% more amenable to those counties remaining countries and not being conquered and assimilated by Iran. The Iran deal was in only one way a good thing. It was an example. It was an example of what horrors can exist and Israel is an ally in the fight against those horrors. Obama/Biden made that clear to these countries.
From the Thank You Obama article:
The peace being achieved now with encouragement of the Trump administration is here because the Arab world realizes just how irrational and dangerous the Obama-Biden policies were. That threat has created an unprecedented degree of unity among the Arabs and between the Arabs and the Jewish state, all in an agreed regional effort to prevent Obamas and Bidens policy goals from becoming a reality.
“Obama Biden led the ground work for this to happen”
Only in the sense that Obama screwed things up, allowing ISIS and Iran to spread.
Only in the sense that Obama sided with Iran, showing the Arabs and Israelis that they could not trust Obama or the democrats.
Only in the sense that Obama’s dismal failure as president convinced Donald Trump to run and for the people to vote for Trump.
Flight to Abu Dhabi? Was there a cat-carrier in the cargo hold, which contained a grey kitten named Nermal?
/I suddenly feel old...
It's like a dream come true.. the start of real peace in the middle east...
