|An older Jewish man looks at a mural of
Rasmea Odeh, a murderer of his people
at Reem's restaurant
Dusty of Pro-Israel Bay Bloggers fame put this one together and G-d bless her for it.
For those of you who do not know, Reem's (510-852-9390) is a restaurant that serves flatbread to the public, just off of the Fruitvale BART station in Oakland.
They do so in the name of politics at least as much as the culinary arts and antisemitic anti-Zionism is their flavor of choice. They, therefore, celebrate the murder of Jews as a matter of "social justice" as they pass off shakshuka and (yikes!) beet hummus.
This place is so into the righteous murder of Jewish people, in fact, that they put up a tremendous mural of Rasmea Odeh who has the distinction of being both a convicted murderer and a leader of contemporary American feminism - that is, if she has not yet been deported for deceiving the government on the terms of her admission into the United States - given the fact that she is a convicted murderer, and all.
She is a former member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) an associate of antisemitic anti-Zionist propagandist, Linda Sarsour, and one of the four primary organizers, along with Gloria Steinem, of the Women's March in Washington, D.C., after the Trump inauguration.
The people that she killed were Leon Kanner (21) and Edward Joffe (22). Both were college students at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem back in 1969. Odeh then spent the next ten years in an Israeli prison before being swapped out with around 75, or so, fellow Palestinian prisoners for a single kidnapped Jew.
What needs to happen, in my opinion, is for the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish community to let people know that the glorification of the murder of Jewish people is simply not acceptable.
Sadly, I do not believe that the Jewish community in the SF Bay Area has the leadership to stand up for much of anything.
I mean, if they will not stand against the murderer of Jewish college students smiling at them as they pass into Fruitvale BART - the very same station where Oscar Grant was killed, as an aside - then I must wonder what they will stand up for?
