The reaction to Moshe the Beadle's story is one of rejection with being dismissive.  The Jewish individuals of Sighet essentially negate his story.  Their rationales are not openly asserted, but are clearly present.  Moshe is perceived as different, and those in Sighet deny his humanity by dismissing he and his story because of his difference.  At the same time, there might be an element of rationalization or denial involved as many of the Jewish people of Sighet did not want to accept that what Moshe the Beadle had articulated could be considered as reality.  The combination of fear and rejection combine to create a response to Moshe which was to essentially deny his own humanity as well as his warnings, something which proved quite prophetic as the narrative evolved.
