What bothers me most about the fact that Reem's Restaurant and Bakery (510-852-9390) at the Fruitvale BART Station is promoting the murder of innocent Jewish people is the fact that local Jewish organizational leadership does not seem to care.
I find this sad and pathetic.
Stand With Us - which is an important group, I guess - apparently has more important things to do then concern itself with this.
The reason is because they have limited resources and, ya know, shaddup!
It is difficult for me to describe this moment in local political history because I have never experienced what - at least in some small measure - it must have been like for Jewish Berliners in the early 1930s.
I keep suggesting that the installation of Reem's at the Fruitvale BART Station is something akin to requiring Jewish people to pass storefront signs reading, "No Jews Allowed."
This, as has been pointed out to me, is not a good analogy.
It is, in fact, more akin to requiring Jewish people to pass storefront signs reading, "We are going to fucking kill you."
