Israeli Diplomat Kicked Out of Uber for Speaking Hebrew

A disturbing report of anti-Semitism has come out of the U.S. Chicago's ABC7  news team tells us about an Israeli diplomat who was thrown out of an Uber simply because he was speaking his mother tongue, Hebrew:

Itay Milner, the Deputy Consul General of Israel to the Midwest, said he was heading home on lower Wacker Drive when the driver kicked him out of the vehicle Thursday night.

"He started yelling at me. 'Get out of my car.' Using the 'F' word," Miner said. "Pretty shocked that some like that could happen in America. I mean, we all know there is racism everywhere...We should get people like that off the road. It's dangerous..."
