Woman kicked off plane after argument about Israel conflict (Jewish Woman Forced Off)
Palm Beach Post ^ | 7-12-2014 | Scott Heins

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 told WPBF that the woman began cursing her and calling her a "Zionist pig."

And the Palestinian got to stay. Geeez I remember right after 9-11 when muslims were thrown off of planes for wearing turbans because the other (decent God-fearing normal humans) would complain. I suppose this is tit for tat. If it's one thing we should be afraid of on airplanes, it's Jewish female doctors. I shudder.

And Muslims wonder why we don’t like them.

If I had been the pilot, the Muzzie would have been booted.

Meanwhile, I’m sure Abe Foxman is ready to issue a joint statement with Arab chrstian leaders in the Middle East about how hateful, bigoted, and murderous Bible-thumping rednecks are.

And which airline was that, so that I never give them any of my business?

The plane is exactly the WRONG place to have a discussion like this with someone you just met. Opinions are intense in both directions. Believe it or not, there are even some Jewish people who favor the Palestinians. If they are so locked into Liberal Worship as that, you won’t change their minds during a plane ride, w/o some hysteria or anger going on. Talk about it long after you have left the plane and long after you are out of the air terminal, so you don’t make a spectacle that attracts the TSA. I would not talk about Obama’s presidency during a flight unless it was someone who agreed with me already. Practice basic Survival techniques during this Progressive Siege, is my opinion.

Yet Dr. Rosenberg from New York likely voted Marxist in the last 2 presidential elections.

When was the incident where a muslim was thrown off a plane for wearing a turban?

I see from the article that she was on her phone. She was not directly talking to the one claiming to be ‘offended’. Even still, be aware that you are being listened to. Wait and return that call later, in private.

I would have let the muuzie stay ON the plane while the rest of us stayed IN the plane. Of course too many muzzies on planes will mess up the aerodynamics for a little while but I’m thinking enough of them will eventually let go and do a solo flight for a little while.

Gotta love it that the person who FEELS BAD because the other one stated an opinion trumps everyone else. Touchy thin-skins rule. Works well in the White House/ not.

We’re living in Obama’s World, upside down morality and attacks on the regular normal American. Please Lord protect our country from its “leadership”.

in the days after 9-11 if people boarded A plane where they felt uncomfortable, the airlines were asking the muslims to leave. It was just a few times

Wow. I am shocked. On what basis did they kick her off? I haven’t used Jet Blue since I flew up to Rochester to adopt a cat I’d seen on the internet (money WELL spent, she is my dearest little buddy). Haven’t used them since. And if this story is true, won’t ever use them again.

Well, I tend to get offended by any loud cell phone conversations on a plane, without regard to content.

Indeed. Especially for the bozos that talk so loudly you can hear them a block away.

She said “voices were raised” and that perhaps she was more vocal during the scene, but that it was because she felt victimized.

And there's the story behind the spin.

Even she admits she was being loud.

It's also pretty obnoxious in the first place to have a non-essential mobile phone call in the cramped quarters of an airplane.

I knew there had to be more to this story.

Just because she is right about terrorism doesn't mean she is right about travel etiquette.

FReepers should follow this story to see what pans out. And then, if the doctor's story is substantiated, we should FReep Jet Blue Airlines. If you don't want to be offended by a private phone call, don't listen, you yenta. Why couldn't Jet Blue have simply had the doctor switch seats so that she didn't have to sit next to a Pali yenta easedropper?

Let's not forget that Jet Blue recently made a toddler sit in her seat and wouldn't let her use the restroom, so she peed her pants right there in the seat.

Oh, and Jet Blue is on the "approved" list of the Liberal Shopping and Consumer guide posted on the Dailykuss website. That speaks volumes in itself.

And there's the story behind the spin.

Bingo - this is a small quiet airport and serves a lot of Neu Yoorkers. Now many people have a tendency to SHOUT into their cellphones when a whisper would do. Not to paint with a broad brush but Neuu Yooorkas seem to shout loudest and with the little mindfulness for those suffering around them.

So I am thinking there is more to this story and some justification for which person got the boot. It may have come down to relative obnoxiousness. The doctor seems to have won.

Flight stewards are all Stalin-wanna-bes. Probably a Muzzie flight steward or two. Kicking paying customers off airplanes is not rare. I’ve seen it many times and been kicked off once...from first class no less.

It’s gotten to the point that a muslim can bomb us, say he’s offended by being arrested just because he’s a muslim, then be let go. And half the people in this country would agree. These are the ones who yelled “Too soon! Too soon!”

I’ve flown a lot, and I’ve never gotten tossed off the plane. I guess I’m just not obnoxious and arrogant enough.

And I’ve never seen a muzzie flight attendant on a US carrier. Lots of fairies, but not muzzies. Most of the muzzies I’ve seen at the airport have been working for TSA.

We learned soon after 9-11 that passengers uncomfortable with what would appear to be muzzie scum on the plane, could request the scum be deplaned.
