OP is out of date, better info can be found here: http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/15417
Right, it was the last post of this thread.
Maybe just sticky that link...
Only to stop 10's of new threads, "I have Starpoints, how do I get to Israel?"...

Israel for 35k miles r/t

"- If youíre doing a longer trip to that region from New York, the actual best choice is to use LAN kilometers to fly to Amman, Jordan, on Royal Jordanian. LAN only charges the equivalent of 35,000 miles roundtrip in coach for the nonstop flight to Amman (100,000 in business class). You can transfer Starwood points to LAN, meaning itís only 30,000 Starwood points for a roundtrip ticket to Jordan. Thatís a great deal. To check availability I would call American Airlines, since LANís call center can be hit-or-miss (Iím being generous). You could add on a leg from Amman to Tel Aviv for 6,000 miles roundtrip (12,000 LAN Kilometers)." http://www.onlinetravelreview.com/

Anyone tried flying with them?

Nothing new there, see OP from 2010 or this post: http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/23168
People have done it.  The 35K number is misleading at best.
