i want to book a friend using aadvantage if they flag my account because of 3rd party booking what can i do to prove that were good friends is there a benefit to calling up in advance toll free number to let them know what im doing?
If it is really your account and you are really booking for a friend, you should be ok.
Make sure you use your CC to pay the taxes.
Don't call in advance.

WOW!!!!

https://en.globes.co.il/en/article-agreement-signed-to-operate-israel-uae-oil-pipeline-1001346340

There's an interesting twist to this story, which I don't see addressed. IIRC Iran has joint ownership with Israel of the Eilat-Ashkelon pipeline.

ETA: It seems like there might have been some change, with another corporation set up (eapc.co.il) that manages the assets of the original corporation. It's very complex, and I don't have the time now to research it.

https://www.davar1.co.il/125818/
There was a big article written in one of the Israeli financial newspapers a month or two ago that I enjoyed reading. It was an in depth analysis about a possible oil pipeline that would release the gulf states from the threat of Iranian attacks against oil tankers in the Hurmuz strait. Such a pipeline from the Gulf to Europe with Israel as the focal point of transfer would arguably be safer and cheaper and would benefit both countries greatly.

You have experience with successfully arranging your own?
Not yet...
I don't see how they can stop you from showing up on your own if you have a confirmed reservation. That would be like forcing you to buy sunscreen for $60 instead of bringing your own.

In any case write to them and tell them you are booking your own transfer and see what they say.

There are private transfer boats that cost a lot less then what the hotels charge. You can pre-book your transfer in advance and advise the hotel of your arrival time.

Any time I try looking flights on google I get "Oops, something went wrong." Any idea what it could be?
Try incognito. Probably some cache issue.

Seems like Qatar is next
I'm very, very skeptical about that one. Qatar is in the Iran-Syria-Lebanon-Gaza axis or at least a strong sympathizer.

In the cold war for Muslim domination between Iran and KSA they have picked the side of Iran and are very unlikely to normalize relations with Israel anytime soon. Without normalizing relationships and with Israelis not even allowed into the country, it makes zero sense to operate flights.

If Qatar does normalize relations with Israel, it would be part of big shake-up in the Arab world and part of Qatar's return to the KSA group.

Toaster really doesn't take up that much room. Get a new one that isn't very big, put cloths and stuff in it and place it in your suitcase. Toss it before leaving the hotel.
You can also buy a small blech/plata/hotplate which is much easier to pack and will take up very little room in a suitcase and just heat up the food for an hour on that.
