J’lem restaurant that employs Palestinians is repeatedly struck by skinheads — ‘Death to Arabs’

Israel/Palestine

From Ynet: “Restaurant in [Jerusalem] systematically suffers attacks by teens vowing revenge for business’s employment of Arabs.”

Death to Arabs
“Death to Arabs” in Hebrew

On Friday, a group of assailants made it to the area and threw stones at customers. “Within a minute, some 60 clients asked for their bill wanting to leave,” Ventura said, “and it was all based on racism, because we hire Arabs.”

He added that “approximately two months ago, on a Friday evening, a group of about eight to 10 religious guys came to the area, as our cook, mostly Arabs, were sitting outside. One of the teens realized the cook was an Arab and started to curse at him. The cook asked them to leave and then they started to beat him as they were crying out ‘Death to Arabs.’

    Fits right in with the article here not long ago about the attack on the Jewish McDonald’s franchise. Maybe the fries should be called Palestinian Freedom Fries?

    Were they real skinheads — that is, with shaven heads, typical skinhead clothing, and regarding themselves as part of the international skinhead movement? Or is it just rhetoric on your part? Of course, they may well be as bad as skinheads, or even worse, but that isn’t quite the same.

    MY COMMENT: Perhaps this what Haim Saban was talking about when he said: “Jerusalem offers a magical environment for filming.”

    “Next year in Jerusalem” but not as you know it.

    Next year in Jerusalem promises to be even worse.

    My concept of a “skinhead” is based on what I witnessed in North Idaho, living there when Reverend Butler and his Aryan Nation Church were in a compound at Hayden Lake. These maggots were rabidly anti-semitic, going so far to run a local Jewish restaurant owner out of town through vandalisam and threats. (Chef Rosen. An amazing chef and human being.)

    I really think that the term “skinhead” might be misused here. If, in fact, true “skinheads” were in Israel, both arabs AND Jews would be targeted.

      In England certain skinheads aligned with the EDL are now stupidly pro-Israel and it’s muslims they hate instead. Fake-Objectivist Pamela Geller is a big fan of the EDL.

    The attack: despicable.

    The skinheads: non-existent, even in the original article.

    Dysfunction doesn’t come overnight. It takes time to develop a situation where restaurant diners are targeted because the restaurant employs

    Jews/blacks/lesbians/Shia/whatever
    Thugs get an emotional high from pushing boundaries of acceptable behavior in a society that has lost its discipline.

    The big loser in all of this is the society. Bigotry and violence have economic costs.
    And for Israel the rot won’t stop at this. The hatred must find an outlet.

    “How will the Jews of the world react once it becomes clear to them beyond any shadow of a doubt that Israel is on a collision course with their very existential interests? The various expressions of fanaticism in Israel, such as the exclusion of women in the military and, in a short while, in institutions of higher learning; the denial of equal rights to its non-Jewish citizens and the division of the population according to ethnic origin can all ultimately be considered as subversive actions undermining the status of Diaspora Jews in their various countries of residence.”
