Hundreds of Jews heading to Tuesday's pro-Israel rally in D.C. were stranded when bus drivers staged "a deliberate and malicious march," a major Jewish organization said. 

 "Counter-protesters" took off on a chartered flight from Detroit carrying about 300 people. They were on the Dulles Airport tarmac for about 11 hours before being sent back home. 

 I thought it was crazy that we were prevented from going to the rally, Jonathan Kaufman told The Post. It was a "good" call to find out what was going on as they were on hold for hours. 

 They said "our right to assembly is a constitutional right — and this directly inhibits it." 

 Kaufman and 900 others boarded three private planes from Detroit, which were chartered by the Jewish Federation of Detroit, which booked several buses to take the large group of marchers to D.C.'s National Mall.
