Why wasn't Kuwait Airways forced to face up to its contradictory stance?

The thing that I don't get about this case is how Kuwait Airways could have offered to compensate "Adar M" with a  a direct flight from Frankfurt to Bangkok on a different airline if Kuwaiti law prohibited the company entering "into an agreement, personally or indirectly, with entities or persons residing in Israel, or with Israeli citizenship." Isn't buying Adar a ticket on a different airline entering into an agreement with him, at least indirectly?

If they hadn't compensated him, it just would have looked like they were ripping the Israeli off, which probably would have weakened the airline's case. But by compensating him, why wouldn't that also damage their case in the German court, as they were willing to enter into one kind of deal with an Israeli just not the deal that he paid for.
