    As long as Persian Gulf carriers persist in anti-semitic policies, I will never set foot on them.

    We don't usually mix politics with business, especially when the Persian Gulf carriers are the ones we can afford to fly at prices which suit us. So far most of our flights with carriers based in the Gulf had been pretty good.

    & anti-gay, anti-women, anti-anything-in-the-20th--or-21st-centuries, rather my US Dollars go towards organizations which respect decent human beings

    I don't consider opposing anti-semitism (and, as Richard Chen pointed out, a number of other forms of discrimination and persecution) was "political." Refusing to stay at the Venetian because it is owned by Adelson is a political position. Refusing to patronize an establishment run by the KKK is not.
