FAIL "Israel Charm Offensive"

I’d rate Israel’s “Charm Offensive” since the Gaza Genocide as a massive FAIL.

And according to the recent figures from El Al Airlines it’s true. Poor little Israel, it seems no one wants to come visit the Evil Rogue State. The second quarter Net loss was $19.7 mln and the festivities don’t stop there either, as Revenues are down 28 pct.
El Al, which is facing increased competition from foreign airlines, recorded a quarterly net loss of $19.7 million, or 4 cents per diluted share, from a net loss of $12.8 million, or 3 cents a share, a year earlier.
Revenues for the quarter fell 28 percent to $399.4 million, hurt by a 3.5 percent decrease in its international passenger movement and a 26 percent drop in cargo activity at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion International Airport, which drove down cargo prices significantly.
El Al shares were down 2.5 percent at 0.929 shekels at 0835 GMT, underperforming the Tel Aviv blue-chip index .TA25, which was down 1.3 percent.
So I reckon all the “Tel Aviv Beaches” they built around the world spending millions on, failed miserably. I guess people have a hard time wanting to celebrate, by playing a good ole game of “Beach Ball” whilst licking an ice cream on a fake Israeli beach in Central Park, Vienna or Copenhagen with the images of 400 dead Palestinian children seared into their brains.

And of course the recent tactic of Racist Nazi Lieberman and his cohorts who changed the visa regulations for tourists, that didn’t help either. As was evident when the Tourist Ministry had a meltdown over it.

So yup, it’s a FAIL all around for poor little Israel. Instead of trying to buy people with beaches and paid online armies of spammers and censors, perhaps a better course of action would be for Israel to become human, return all stolen land, admit it’s war crimes, pay for them and make a just, fair, equal and lasting peace with ALL it’s neighbours. Nah, that will never happen……..And now for something COMPLETELY different, I bring you a Rat Eating Plant LINK
