Flying Blue is the mileage program of Air France and KLM. They are both Skyteam Alliance members, as is Delta.
The nice thing about Flying Blue is that they consider Israel to be part of Europe. However they do charge fuel surcharges except for Delta flights.
Round-trip coach to Israel would require 40K AMEX points plus fuel surcharges with the 25% transfer bonus:
Round-trip business to Israel would require 84.8K AMEX points plus fuel surcharges:
Flying Blue does allow one-way redemptions for half the price, so 20K AMEX points would be enough for a one-way ticket between North America and Tel Aviv in coach and 42.4K would be enough in business class.
Flying Blue also has useful Promo Awards that discount the miles required by 25-50% from rotating cities. Promo awards from LA and NYC just ended on Sunday.
Currently there are Promo awards valid from Boston, Chicago, Washington DC, and Montreal. Valid cities change each month.
