israel airlines protest

Israeli airlines workers shout slogans during a demonstration outside the prime minister's office on April 21, 2013 in Jerusalem as staff mounted a strike in protest against plans to ink an Open Skies deal with European carriers. Israel's three airlines -- El Al, Arkia and Israir -- are bitterly opposed to the deal which was to be ratified by the cabinet on Sunday, saying it would result in widespread layoffs.
