Boycott JetBlue! Jewish woman kicked off plane when Palestinian terror-supporter complains she was talking about Israel

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. —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.

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.

Oh, I'm not afraid to post things that 'contradict my narrative' if people put their name to them.

However, the account on the blog you're quoting sounds very fishy. As one person who commented on it observed:

"You’ve made a terrible mistake. Your story picks up with the arrival of the flight attendant, but does not make mention of any of the words exchanged prior. I’m not saying I know what happened either. The reality is that Dr. Rosenberg claimed that many things were said by this Palestinian woman prior to the flight attendant’s intervention. The title of your article, and your assumption of [anti-Arab] racism are both unfounded and intellectually dishonest."

That seems like a reasonable observation. The doctor was on the phone talking to someone. Why did this Palestinian woman approach her and say those things to her? The account you're quoting sounds out of context and implausible without putting it into proper context, and JetBlue was irresponsible and reprehensible in their actions in this instance.
