    A Jewish woman was thrown off an American airline after a heated row with a Palestinian passenger about the conflict in Gaza.

    Lisa Rosenberg was asked to leave the jetBlue flight from Palm Beach to New York after a heated row with a Palestinian woman, who was alleged to have called Ms Rosenberg “a Zionist pig” after overhearing her phone call.

    Ms Rosenberg told the Palm Beach Post: “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.

    “I said any other country would have made these students out to be martyrs and celebrating them.”

    Ms Rosenberg claimed that the Palestinian passenger overheard her phone conversation and called her a “Zionist pig”.

    However, the airline has denied Ms Rosenberg’s claim. A spokesperson told the JTA: “The story presented in no way reflects the reports from our crew, whose decision to remove the customer we support.”
