“They were screaming ‘Heil Hitler’, ‘Kill the Jews’, ‘Palestine must kill you Jews’, ‘We are going to cut your throats and slice your throats open’ — just all very bad, anti-Semitic stuff.
“Jewish schools need to be on high alert. I am shaking like a leaf. My kids were on a private school bus only for Jewish schoolchildren.”
The teens got off at Bondi Junction after children phoned their parents in tears.
Mrs Blackburn said: “They phoned hysterically from Bondi saying, ‘Help us Mummy, strange bad drunk men are on the bus’.
“Then the phone cut off and another child rang saying, ‘They’re threatening to kill us, they are screaming ‘Heil Hitler’.”
One female student who was on the bus said: “All we could do was run to the front of the bus. They told the girls they were ‘f … ing c … s.”
Another mother, Isabelle Stanton, whose daughters Noa, 8, and Anais, 12, boarded at Mount Sinai College in Maroubra, said: “They were screaming racial stuff, ‘We are going to murder you’, ‘We are going to kill you’, and ‘Free Palestine’.
“When they got on the bus they wanted to sit next to the kids. When they got off they kicked the door and windows of the bus and yelled, ‘We are going to bash you guys. F. Israel, Free Palestine’.
“The kids are aware of what is going on in the Middle East but the conflict in the Middle East should not be imported here — we are now feeling very vulnerable.”
Noa was sitting at the back of the bus. “They got on and couldn’t walk properly and looked drunk and said they had just been pumping drugs in the city,” she said.
“They said ‘Come sit with us, we won’t do anything’. So we went to the bus driver and said, ‘Get them off the bus’ and he said ‘Don’t worry’ and told them to ‘Zip your lips’. We were panicking and crying.”
Mrs Stanton said parents could not understand why the thugs were allowed on the bus.
“I have no words, when children are involved it triggers some terrible emotions.”
Distraught parents said they wanted the Communal Security Group, run by the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, to be on the school bus for every stop from now on. Parents collected their frightened children from North Bondi, where they gave statements to police.
Board of Deputies chief executive Vic Alhadeff condemned the racist ambush.
“We are deeply disturbed by this incident and we are working with the police and the state government to ensure that proper and adequate security measures are put in place,” he said.
Police said they were hunting a gang of teenagers.
A group of men have stormed a school bus, unleashing racist abuse at young school girls, listen first hand of the episode by two of the passengers on board.
