    Jewish Protestors Stranded in Bus Driver Walkout

    About 300 Jewish people headed to DC Israel rally left stranded by bus drivers staging ‘deliberate and malicious’ walkout









    Hundreds of Jewish people headed to Tuesday’s pro-Israel rally in DC were left stranded when bus drivers staged “a deliberate and malicious walk-off,’’ a major Jewish organization said.

    The “anti-protest” left a chartered flight from Detroit — about 300 people — on the Dulles Airport tarmac for about 11 hours before they were sent back home, causing them to miss the entire March for Israel event.

    “I thought it was nuts, I thought it was crazy that we’re blocked from getting to the rally,” Jonathan Kaufman told The Post, adding that there were “frantic” calls to find out what was happening as they were stranded for hours.

    “Our right to assembly is a constitutional right — and this was straight-up blocking that.”

    Kaufman and 900 others hopped on three private planes out of Detroit chartered by the Jewish Federation of Detroit, which also booked several buses to transport the massive group to the march at DC’s National Mall.


    A third of the passengers weren’t allowed to leave the tarmac, however, after several buses failed to show up on the tarmac upon their 10:30 a.m. landing, according to a federation spokesperson.

    The drivers had organized a “mass sick-out” day to prevent Jewish ralliers from attending the much-anticipated march, leaving just a handful available to meet their obligations.

    “We have learned from the bus company that this was caused by a deliberate and malicious walk-off of drivers,” the spokesperson told The Post.

    The bus company — which the federation repeatedly refused to name — told the Jewish Federation of Detroit that a “significant number” of drivers called out sick when they learned they would be taking hundreds of Jewish Americans to the pro-Israel rally, the organization’s David Kurzmann told reporters at a press conference Tuesday.

    “In the way that this action prevented proud Jewish Americans from exercising their freedom to speak, protest, assemble gathered today at the nation’s capital, that to me was a malicious act. It was an act targeting the Jewish community as far as their participation in this rally,” Kurzmann said.

    Name the bus company. Make them infamous.

    A safe bet in the DC area they are all Union workers and this tells us a lot about how some Democrats actually feel about Free Speech.

    Imagine if this were a BLM or Million Man March? It would be front page NYTimes and all over left media with plenty of outrage about Racist America.

    Fire all the drivers involved and make their identities known and let it be known that any business that hires them will be treated like a pariah and it will reflect in their bottom line.

    They could have taken the Metro into DC. Probably would have been a better way to get in and out of town anyway given all the street closures and traffic.

    No, they couldn't.

    Airport regulations would not permit them to leave the tarmac without being transported by bus and the airport authorities would not assist them in getting transportation, maintaining that it was the charter's responsibility to arrange transportation.

    They couldn't leave the airport.

    This is nothing new. Trump supporters went through the same thing. In PA they too were left stranded.
