1. Jerusalem Conference
Richard ,   Los Angeles, USA   (05.27.13)
Simple - Just don't fly these carriers.
2. Turkey
zznhl   (05.27.13)
Why do Israelis insist on travelling to Turkey for vacations, time after time occurances like this one prove that the Turks are inherrently anti-Israel and anti-Jewish. We need to cut all diplomatic, commercialand military contacts with them.....who needs them?
3. time 4 a counter-boycott. bye bye Turkish & Jordanian Air!
4. and the answer from stupid Israeli's?
tiki ,   belgium   (05.27.13)
Flying to Turkey with Turkish Airlines. Giving their money to people who hate you! They will never learn!
5. that's what I would call
Mira ,   Vienna   (05.27.13)
"good will" to make and keep peace. The Jordanian Little King as well as Turkeys Big Sultan are so afraid of their own Islamists that they dare not make sensible political or economical decisions. That is the reality in the Middle East. BTW what happend to the celebrated "reconciliation talks"? Seems as if IHH terrorists are in charge in Turkey!
6. Why is Israeli Air Space open to Turkish and Royal Jordanian
Dee Bee ,   Israel   (05.27.13)
El Al, Israir and Arkia and banned are from flying to Turkey and if the Jordanians want to boycott Israel, so be it! When are Bibi, the Government and Israelis going to realize that Turkey is now the enemy? Must we wait until Israelis are attacked in Antalya?
7. would never fly turkish / royal jordanian in a million years
Scott ,   Ramat Gan, Israel   (05.27.13)
not just because of the boycott, but those airlines have generally less safe, older planes & poor security. turks in instanbul are generally friendly to jews. not interested at all in going to jordan, except petra.
8. This is what we call Peace!
Moshico ,   Jerusalem   (05.27.13)
Warning don't fly with Turkish of Jordanian airlines and don't go there either.
9. Tourism Ministry's response is absolutely pathetic
Expat ,   Adelaide   (05.27.13)
Do they really believe the nonsense they are saying? Or is it that under diplomatic pressure, they are forced to say say that the blatant Jordanian and Turkish spit in the face, is actually rain?
10. No wonder Turkey and Jordan are third world nations.
BUILD BABY BUILD !!! ,   United States   (05.27.13)
They can always take a donkey or camel if they really want to visit Israel's backwards enemies, Jordan and Turkey. I wouldn't spend a dime with these backwards bozos.
11. answer for Tiki @4
A Stupid Israeli ,   Israel   (05.27.13)
I am one of the "Stupid Israelis" you refer to in your comment at #4. I would like to share with you that since 29 January 2009 when the Turkish Prime Minister insulted the Israeli President at the Davos Conference the number of Israeli Citizens visiting Turkey has dropped from 560,000 to less than 60,000 in 2011 (the last year for which statistics are available). I wonder as you are someone who lives in Belgium are you intelligent enough to be aware of Belgium's human rights record? Are you aware of Belgium's child abuse and sexual slavery record? Or are you only intelligent enough to insult people living freely in their own land? Wishing you a lovely afternoon from Israel.
12. El Al Take Note
Gdub ,   Raanana, Israel   (05.27.13)
El Al and Arkia could learn a thing or two from Turkish Airlines and Pegasus Airlines, both of which are taking market share because they are great airlines with reasonable prices.
13. They talk about peace....
Abiedee ,   New York , Us   (05.27.13)
These leaders are always talking about peace but their actions almost never support what they say...
