Jewish Doctor: Booted Off Plane When Arab Complained About Me

A New York doctor claims she was booted from a JetBlue flight when an Arab complained about her being on the plane.
Palm Beach International Airport in Florida was the scene of an alleged anti-Semitic act on July 7, 2014.

Palm Beach International Airport in Florida was the scene of an alleged anti-Semitic act on July 7, 2014.

What the heck is going on?

An incident on a JetBlue airplane boarding at Palm Beach International Airport in Florida was apparently the site of the latest example of Dump the Jew, because they tend to go quietly when reprimanded.

Dr. Lisa Rosenberg had boarded the JetBlue plane for her return trip to New York City on Monday, July 7, and was on the telephone with a colleague in New York when things allegedly became very bizarre.

Dr. Lisa Rosenberg claims she was booted from a JetBlue flight because she is Jewish.

Dr. Lisa Rosenberg claims she was booted from a JetBlue flight because she is Jewish.

Rosenberg claims that she was on the telephone discussing what was happening between Israel and Gaza with a colleague as the rest of the passengers were boarding.

She was praising Israel’s restraint in responding to the kidnap and murder of the three teenagers and the government’s swift condemnation of the brutal murder of a young Palestinian Arab male. Rosenberg also expressed concern about the safety of her daughter who plans to be in Israel this year.

As she was finishing her conversation, an Arab woman approached her, informing Rosenberg she was offended by the content of the conversation.

The discussion apparently became heated. Rosenberg admitted she was arguing, but said the Palestinian Arab woman called her a “Zionist pig,” and was the one who instigated the argument.  A flight attendant soon appeared. Shortly thereafter, Rosenberg was told she had to leave the plane because the Arab woman told the airplane crew she did not feel comfortable flying with Rosenberg on the plane.

The New Yorker was stunned: “I’m a Jewish doctor and this woman is afraid to be on the plane with me?” Rosenberg said, and expressed incomprehension as to why she was the one removed.

“I just was completely outraged that I would be asked to leave a plane, being a Jew,” Rosenberg, a Fresh Meadow, New York obstetrician/gynecologist told WPBF, the local ABC affiliate station.

JetBlue said that there was an incident on the plane, but that the report received by the airline described the incident very differently from Rosenberg’s description.

Rosenberg was escorted from the plane and returned to the airport. She left Florida the next day, but not on a JetBlue plane.

  23. You have a right to your opinion no matter how misguided it might be. I can only recommend that you research a little deeper and you might find out the beliefs you hold are not quite as solid as you think they are. It’s just a matter of stepping away from all the emotional propaganda and checking the facts.
