Woman verbally abused by Jewish bus passengers

A 22-year-old woman was subjected to verbal abuse and humiliation by ultra-Orthodox Jews while traveling on a bus from Jerusalem to Arad on Saturday evening.

The men called her ‘shiksa’ and made vomiting sounds as she boarded the bus to Arad.

“Shiksa” is a yiddish term for a non-Jewish woman. It literally means “abomination”.

The verbal abuse continued throughout the ride.

The nightmare lasted an hour and a half, until the bus reached its destination. Before disembarking, Miri was again subjected to slurs and was spat on by one of the passengers.

“I was insulted the entire way and was in tears,” she says. “No one helped me.”
