And several airlines canceled flights to Israel on their own, as NPR's Brian Naylor reports.<p>BRIAN NAYLOR, BYLINE: The airlines were led by Delta, which diverted a Tel Aviv-bound flight this morning to Paris. The Boeing 747 originated at JFK airport in New York and carried 273 passengers and 17 crew. The airline says it has suspended service to Ben Gurion until further notice.

Alexander Outpaces Tea Party, But Remains In Its Cross Hairs Proposal To Allow State Tolls On Interstates Hits Roadblocks http://redriverradio.org/post/proposal-allow-state-tolls-interstates-hits-roadblocks Transcript <p>STEVE INSKEEP, HOST: <p>Let's talk a little more now about the effort to refill the federal highway trust fund, which is expected to run out of cash later this summer. A short-term fix passed the house earlier this week, and the Senate is said to consider a similar measure - that's the short term. Then there's the question of the longer-term. One possible solution from the White House would let states collect tolls on interstate highways. They've been prohibited from doing that for decades.
