30,000 Israelis are stranded, never mind millions of non-Israelis are also stranded. I wonder if this volcanic Ash Cloud will now be branded Anti-Semitic:
Canceled Flights Leaves Tens of thousands of Israelis Stranded

The cloud that resulted from the volcanic activity in Iceland has shut down airports from Iceland to Ukraine, leaving many travelers stranded, including some 30,000 Israelis who planned to be in Israel for Memorial Day and Independence Day, observed on Monday and Tuesday respectively.

El Al announced plans to begin an air shuttle from Madrid and other airports hoping to operate on Sunday, as the national carrier works to bring home as many people as possible ahead of the holiday week. The bold plan appears questionable at present due to the volcanic cloud that has eliminated visibility, shutting down European skies. source
