In introducing Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper at the Appeal of Conscience Foundation awards dinner, Henry Kissinger made note of his own public service as National Security Advisor in the White House and Secretary of State in the 1970s.

“The only reason I mention it,” he said, “is because never before and never since has the White House and the State Department been as amicable as it was then.”

Most air traffic in Israel resumed Friday morning using emergency jet fuel supplies after the discovery Thursday of contaminated jet fuel at airports throughout the country. It forced the shutdown of all airplane refueling at Ben-Gurion Airport, causing the cancelation of scores of flights.

Terrorism and sabotage were both ruled out, according to media reports.

When air traffic resumed Friday morning, planes were loaded with enough fuel to allow them to fly to Cyprus or Jordan, where they were then loaded with enough fuel for their scheduled trip.
