Skip to comments.Jewish Travelers Separated, Removed from British-based EasyJet Airline in Barcelona

A group of Jewish families that included elderly people, pregnant women and children were taken off an EasyJet passenger plane in Barcelona waiting to depart for Paris, according to a report on the European Jewish Press.
One of the passengers, a Holocaust survivor, said the behavior of police who came to take the travelers off the flight was similar to that of the German Nazi SS police during World War II.
The families were removed after the plane had been sitting on the tarmac for more than two hours, waiting for departure. Many of the Jewish men were wearing kippahs, making them clearly identifiable.
They were returning home to Paris after having spent the Passover holiday in Spain, but were removed from the flight by armed Spanish police officers.
Despite the fact that the British-owned EasyJet flight was en route to Paris from Barcelona, the flight attendant chose to speak only Spanish when she told the Jewish group they were being removed from the flight.
When they asked her to speak in French, she declined, saying she could not speak a word in French or English.
One of the Jewish passengers, a 15-year-old boy, tried to use sign language, motioning with his hands to ask what was going on. In response the flight attendance called the Spanish Guardia Civil Police, a passenger told JPUpdates.
Another passenger, Franck Ben, described the nightmare in a French-language Facebook post, saying he and others felt like they were being treated like terrorists. Ben said the police tried to take away the teenager who had tried to communicate with hand gestures, but his mother intervened and would not allow him to be taken without her.

In my early years I remember reading of the Moorish Invasion into Spain and surrounding. It caused a lot of problems and what was told is that the “problem was solved” or at least disposed of satisfactorily.
Apparently not, after reading this.
What is going on?
Why drag Franco into this, he saved over 200,000 Jews during WWII.
With this article plus the news today about our Army total force numbers plus the tension throughout the world, it seems to me that history is repeating itself and that we are going to have WWIII soon. God help us!
The response of the airlines spokesperson is illuminating: All of our staff are carefully selected and undergo a rigorous training program to maintain our high level of customer care. To confirm, we have a zero tolerance towards discrimination of any kind.
Franco is still dead but is feeling better every day.
Europe is not a good place to be if you are Jewish. My grandfather refused to believe this last century. Which got him into a concentration camp.
The captain was the source of the situation,
based on my reading of the entire article.
Was he a muslim>
They don’t give his name.
Everyone was seated, with seatbelts on, the plane was on the runway. It was near takeoff.
During the security briefing [to the passengers], one of the flight attendants named OMAR allowed himself to say CHUTT in a loud voice [i.e., shush! in an implicitly rude manner] to an old person who was speaking quietly to his 15-year-old grandson, blasting instructions at him in Spanish and not English. The old man, not understanding Spanish, stopped talking.
I was seated at the front of the plane in seat 3C and I saw OMAR complain to the cabin chief about the bad behavior of a passenger; the cabin chief responded in English that they [would] see about that in Paris.
It’s standard procedure for muslims to lodge baseless complaints against overtly Jewish people, knowing that, due to PC nonsense, they will be accepted as truthful.
Undoubtedly the Oman guy made up some nonsense.
The airline insists that the Jewish passengers were removed due to “rowdy behavior”. I find that VERY hard to believe. Sure, families can be noisy, as anyone who’s traveled on a plane could report. But ONLY Jewish families were taken off this plane. VERY VERY suspicious. I don’t blame the Holocaust survivor passenger for being very upset.
Jews are utterly under-represented in rowdy behavior type crime. This was a dune coon flight attendant that was throwing his weight around...guaranteed.
Wish he were still alive today. Things would have been so much better in Spain.
Agreed. Franco saved Spain from becoming a Stalinist Hell.
I agree. There are always some "schlubs" in every group, but to march out every single Jew on the plane smacks of extreme antisemitism. Perhaps there were some crying babies or fussy little kids, but what group doesn't have those? t hope the passengers sue and sue and sue.
“Undoubtedly the Oman guy made up some nonsense.”
Oh, how racist. I’m sure that somewhere, some time, there will be some trouble that a pigdog murder-muzzie didn’t start, and won’t you be embarrassed on that day.
