A group of American Jewish women were unceremoniously expelled from a refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesbos last week after suffering anti-Semitic verbal abuse from volunteers with other aid organizations.
…It started when fellow volunteers working with other organizations began to hurl anti-Semitic and anti-Israel slurs at the Jewish women. At that point, a security guard arrived and, instead of quieting the antagonists, joined in the verbal assault of the Jewish women, demanding they leave the camp.
“The situation quickly deteriorated. The guard…yelled at me and said there was no place here for people like me,” said one of the women. “‘Like me?’ I asked. ‘You mean Israeli? But I’m an American Jew.’ The guard replied by insisting that we [Jews] are all the same – murderers. He then threatened to arrest us if we didn’t leave the camp.”
