Israeli travelers who canceled their family vacation plans due to the war are reporting anti-Israel bias among hotel staff, particularly in the Netherlands and Turkey, according to the Jerusalem Post.

A social media group consisting of around 395,000 members has documented incidents of both support and compassion from international hotels, as well as blatant anti-Israel bias from others.

In one published text message conversation with the Crown Inn hotel chain in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, a staff member refused to refund an Israeli family, and wrote, “It is indeed very unfortunate that Israel has been terroristing [sic] Palestine for years, as a result of which a ‘war’ has now broken out.”

Eden Herstein, a member of the group, has been working to create a blacklist of hotels, tour guides, travel agencies, and vehicle booking services which have discriminated against Israelis, and a list of those who have been helpful.

So far, 25 locations have been blacklisted, with 18 located in Amsterdam.

Crown Inn did not immediately return Hamodia’s request for comment, but an operator who answered the phone said he was familiar with the incident.
