This reeks of the oldest form of anti-Semitism around: portraying Jews as dirty, unclean, subhuman.

Where's the cup of salt to take along with this story?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I'd be just as interested in finding an alternate explanation, because this makes me extremely uncomfortable.

There has undeniably been an increase in anti-Semitic incidents in the news.

I know this family personally. They are the last people I would ever expect to have body odor. They are very normal people. (Yes, SHOCKING, Detroit has normal people!)

So they are being asked to go off the plane and didn't inquire why they are asked off until they were actually off the plane?  ::) ::) ::)

I was too hoping to read something more to this story, but even American Airlines is confirming the story

A statement from American Airlines officials to the Free Press stated, "The Adler family were asked to deplane last night after several passengers, along with our crew members, complained about their body odor. The family were provided hotel accommodations and meals, and rebooked on a flight to Detroit today."

To me the saddest part is reading all the nasty comments that follow on these news websites. Brings out the anti semites out of the woodworks. Such hate!  On second thought , we did kinda get very comfortable here in galus U.S.A. , kinda makes me feel like it’s a kick in the pants to remind us where we are.

Honestly, I would probably have done the same. I'm not a seasoned traveler and if a flight crew member demanded that I leave the plane I would probably have been confused, overwhelmed, feebly protesting but compliant. It would take some time for the outrage to set it.
