So, now, as I’ve long predicted would happen in America, Jews are the “unsafe terrorist” passengers and terrorist-supporting Palestinian Muslims are the new arbiters of “safety” on planes. That’s what Dr. Lisa Rosenberg, a Jewish woman, learned when she was escorted off a JetBlue flight after an anti-Semitic Palestinian (and likely Muslim) passenger complained about Rosenberg’s cell phone conversation praising Israel in its attempts to defend itself against HAMAS terrorists. Oh, and she was removed by sheriff’s deputies as if she were a criminal.
What’s that sound I hear? Bin Laden having another last laugh from the watery grave.
A woman is claiming anti-Semitism is to blame for her being thrown off a JetBlue flight leaving from Palm Beach International Airport this week. Lisa Rosenberg had boarded a flight home to New York Monday night after her vacation in Palm Beach County. She said she was on the phone with a friend talking about the violence in Israel and her concern for her daughter, who will be studying there next year. She said the trouble on the plane began when she finished her call. “A woman comes up to me and says to me ‘I’m a Palestinian,’ and she starts cursing at me. ‘Zionist pig. This is just the beginning,'” Rosenberg said.
Rosenberg said she never said anything negative about Palestinians and was only complimenting Israel on how leaders there have handled this latest conflict.
Um, why is that “distinction” (without a difference) relevant? It’s a free country. Do you think any airline would dare kick a Palestinian off a flight for saying anything negative about Jews or Israel? PUH-LEEZE. Only on El-Al (and maybe not even on El-Al). If she’d said something negative about Palestinians would that justify Dr. Rosenberg getting thrown off the flight and Ms. “Zionist Pig” remaining on the flight? Hell, no.
The argument between the women got heated and a flight attendant had to intervene, Rosenberg said. A few minutes later, a supervisor told her she needed to leave the plane. “I can’t believe it. I said, ‘Why would you do that?’ I said, ‘Why don’t you have her leave the plane?'” she said. Rosenberg said nobody from JetBlue would answer her questions. She said only the other woman had complained and said she was not comfortable flying with Rosenberg.
“I said, ‘The passenger, the Palestinian passenger, didn’t feel comfortable with me, the Jewish doctor being on the plane?'” Rosenberg said she was humiliated but left the plane.
JetBlue confirmed Rosenberg was removed from the flight and added the story she tells “in no way reflects the report that we have.” JetBlue would not release that report and would not specify what’s in it.
Rosenberg said her story is the absolute truth and believes she’s been the victim of a hate crime. “I just was completely outraged that I would be asked to leave a plane, being a Jew,” she said. Rosenberg contacted the Anti-Defamation League. Officials there said they are investigating the incident.
Watch the video (which doesn’t provide a way to post here).
After hearing about this, I would not go to Dr. Rosenberg as a patient. A smart woman would immediately hire a lawyer and sue the heck out of JetBlue as the terrorist-supporting Muslims always do (and almost always get the airlines to do endless mea culpas and sensitivity training ad absurdum). If the events are as she claims (and I believe they are or JetBlue would have released the report and disputed and refuted her with specific facts–plus), this is a civil rights case. And JudenreinBlue Air should be made to pay.
Leaving the job of “investigating” anti-Semitism and discrimination to the far-left, pro-Islamic terrorist ADL is like leaving giving the job to the late Inspector Clouseau and the former Arthur Andersen (with apologies to Monsieur Clouseau for the ADL comparison). And the O.J. jury. This is an organization that repeatedly denies real anti-Semitism and prefers to cozy with the kinds of Muslims who got Dr. Rosenberg kicked off the plane.
Oh, and by the way, somebody needs to remind the brainiacs at JetBlue that it wasn’t the Jewish religion whose members flew planes into buildings and murdered 3,000 Americans or whose members tried to blow up a plane with underwear or who shot up Fort Hood, etc., etc., etc. Ms. “Zionist Pig” Palestinian should have been thrown off the plane, but JetBlue knows she’ll actually hire a lawyer, while this sucker sends it to the black hole dead end of the ADL.
A Jewish woman was kicked off a JetBlue flight Monday night at Palm Beach International Airport after a heated discussion with another passenger about the conflict in Israel.
Dr. Lisa Rosenberg, a physician from New York, was returning home from vacation boarding a flight from PBIA to John F. Kennedy International Airport. She said she had just finished a phone conversation with a colleague when a woman said she was offended by Rosenberg’s remarks.
“I was saying how it was good Israel found the students that killed the Palestinian teenager and how it was exemplary not making them into heroes, but seeking to publicly try them,” Rosenberg said. “I said any other country would have made these students out to be martyrs and celebrating them.” Rosenberg added that she had never heard of the Palestinians seeking the same sort of justice against one of their own people. . . .
Rosenberg said that after she finished her call, a woman approached her, identified herself as Palestinian and said she was offended by the conversation. Words were exchanged and Rosenberg was asked to leave the plane. JetBlue confirms Rosenberg was asked to exit the plane and complied. Rosenberg said the woman used racial slurs, threatened her daughter and demanded Rosenberg be removed because she felt uncomfortable.
However, a representative from the airline said Rosenberg’s story “in no way reflects the report that we have. . . . [Corporate communications manager Morgan] Johnston said the report is not available to media and would not give details of what it said. The name of the other woman was not available.
Rosenberg described the incident as an “ugly, racially driven altercation.” She said “voices were raised” and that perhaps she was more vocal during the scene, but that it was because she felt victimized. A Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputy arrived after Rosenberg had been escorted off the plane by airline representatives, sheriff’s spokeswoman Teri Barbera said. . . .
Obstetrician Myles Kobren, who was on the phone with Rosenberg just before the incident, confirmed Rosenberg’s account of the conversation, but did not hear details of the discussion with the other passenger. He said he remembers hearing a woman identify herself as Palestinian and said she didn’t like the comments Rosenberg was making, but then the call was disconnected.
Until JetBlue explains what really happened–and it won’t be forced to until and unless there is a lawsuit and/or it is hurt financially–it’s safe to assume that Dr. Rosenberg’s story is accurate and that if you are a Jew or pro-Israel, it’s best to take another airline.
Get a lawyer, lady.
