Dyer’s conclusion, one held by many who may not be saying it out loud, or in mixed company, is that the FAA ban is “clearly political.” She went so far as to say that the flight ban is worse than an economic boycott because those only target specific products. What the FAA has done is, essentially, created an economic ban on a whole country: Israel.
