Delta Air Lines accused of discriminatory business deal

Country/Region: United States, Saudi Arabia

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) has demanded that Delta Air Lines ends its partnership with Saudi Arabian Airlines after claiming that the latter has discriminatory policies targeting Jews, Christians and women.

Under the new Delta-Saudi arrangement, American Jews and non-Jews with an Israeli stamp in their passport may be prohibited from flying into Saudi Arabia, which bases its laws and regulations on sharia and discriminates against non-Muslims and women.

The ACLJ is also asking the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Congress to investigate the business deal, claiming to be confident that Congress will want to examine it very closely.

Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the ACLJ, said:

For Delta to form a business relationship with a country that has a disturbing record of human rights violations is not only problematic, but warrants further scrutiny from the federal government and Congress. Delta says it does not discriminate in its business practices, but then says it cannot control what other nations do. Delta can't have it both ways.

If you choose to do business with a government that discriminates on the basis of religion, ethnicity and gender, you simply cannot brush it aside. We're calling for FAA oversight of this deal and a congressional investigation. Delta can do the right thing - cancel this business relationship - and it should.

The ACLJ has launched a national protest campaign urging Americans to express their concerns over the Delta-Saudi alliance.

    • Continue to remember Pastor Tandin Wangyal, who is serving a prison sentence of almost four years in the small nation of Bhutan, only because he received funds from outside the country to help support his ministry. Ask God to sustain our brother at this time, so that he will draw comfort from God’s grace. Pray that his faith will not fail. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed 18 hours ago

    • Dear Lord Jesus, we pray for freedom for the thousands of Eritrean Christian refugees who have fled from escalating anti-Christian persecution in their home country, and are being detained in prisons in Egypt. You said that You had been sent to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and to set the oppressed free. We especially ask your healing for women and men who have been raped in prison, and for your grace for those who have been kept chained for months, suffering hunger, torture and abuse. Please free these faithful ones, who suffer for Your Name. (Luke 4:18,21) Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Fri, Dec 2014 00:00

    • Praise God for the continued Christian presence in northern Mali, despite the apparent desire of jihadists to wipe it out. Most of the Christians who had fled the region when Islamist radicals took control in 2012 have now returned to their homes, after French troops ousted the Islamists. Many church buildings were desecrated, looted or severely damaged, but the Christians are determined to resume their ministries. Pray for their protection.

    • Continue to pray for church leaders in Christian-majority Burundi that they may have wisdom in responding to the unfamiliar situation of political restriction by their own government. A new law passed in August requires each church to have at least 500 members and a proper building; congregations were given a year to comply. Pray that religious liberty will be maintained in Burundi, both for Christians and for the small minorities who follow other religions. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Wed, Dec 2014 00:00

    • Heavenly Father, we pray to you for our Christian brothers and sisters in north-eastern Nigeria, who are so vulnerable in the face of attacks by Boko Haram militants. We remember especially those who used to live in Shani, in Borno state, until their town was raided by Boko Haram on 29 November. We cry out to You to intervene and bring an end to the murderous attacks by Boko Haram. We pray for all the thousands of Nigerian Christians who have suffered in similar attacks that they will not lose hope or faith in You, but will know Your peace which passes understanding.
