Summary

The Anti-Defamation League is calling out Lufthansa after the German carrier blocked a large group of travelers — seemingly because they were Jewish — from boarding a flight in Frankfurt, Germany.The carrier apologized for last week's incident, calling it inconsistent with its policies and values. "We apologize to all the passengers unable to travel on this flight, not only for the inconvenience, but also for the offense caused and personal impact."The ADL, a leading anti-hate organization, dismissed Lufthansa's statement as insufficient and vague."This non-apology fails to admit fault or identify the banned passengers as Jews. I expect German companies in particular to be aware of antisemitism," tweeted Marlene Schoenberger, a member of the German Greens party tasked with fighting antisemitism.The American Center for Law & Justice, a conservative, Christian-based activist group, plans to sue Lufthansa on behalf of at least 26 people it contends were victimized by "the unconscionable antisemitic incident," according to a notice emailed to the carrier and sent to CBS MoneyWatch.
