This is America. We have anti discrimination laws. You want to fly to the USA, you have to abide by them. Simple as that.

That's not discrimination, they allow Jews on their flights.

Their government made a political decision which they're bound to and that is in no way more discriminatory than Turkey not recognizing Cyprus or Pakistan not accepting Armenian passports.

I don't think discrimination means what you think it does.

"treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing belongs rather than on individual merit:"

Denying someone boarding due to national origin is textbook discrimination. And the USA has federal laws proscribing that.

That's your mistake.
They have nothing against your origin, you just don't have a valid passport.

Proof: an Israeli national can fly KU if he/she carries a US passport.

They have nothing against your origin? If that were true, there would be diplomatic relations between Kuwait and Israel, but there isn't, so we know that statement is preposterous.

Fact is, they are discriminating against Israelis through proxy, and there is another case currently before the D.C Court of Appeals that is set to decide the matter.

Saying, "Oh, I don't hate Chassidim, I just don't allow anyone in my restaurant who has side-locks, black hats, and black coats," is in effect doing exactly what you say you're not doing, and which is illegal in this great country.

So you're saying the US is discriminating against the people of Donetsk by not accepting their passport? (assuming they have their own passport).

If in fact people from Donetsk have their own passport, and if in fact the US does not have diplomatic relations with people from Donetsk, it would be discriminating.

...except discrimination in this instance is not illegal because the people being discriminated against aren't US citizens (or at least I think that's the reason).

Can someone fly on Kuwait with a US passport but was born in Jerusalem (he holds an Israeli Passport but won't be using it) would they give him issues flying JFK-Delhi via Kuwait
