Fresh-baked bigotry: Oakland bakery glorifies terrorist who murdered Israeli Jews

by This bakery? Saturday, Jul. 08, 2017 at 10:45 PM

A bakery in Oakland, California sparked controversy shortly after its opening last month when the eatery decided to feature a decidedly un-kosher mural on one of its walls.

In May, Reem Assil opened “Reem’s California”, an Arab-style bakery in Oakland’s Fruitvale neighborhood. In 2016, Assil raised more than $50,000 with a Kickstarter campaign to help launch her new business.

But within weeks of its opening, customers began to realize that Reem’s California was not merely a restaurant, but a political statement.

A large mural glorifying PFLP terrorist Rasmea Odeh, who in 1969 murdered two Jewish college students and injured nine others in a Jerusalem bombing, covers one wall of the eatery.

Odeh, who was released a decade after the attack in a prisoner swap, managed to immigrate to the US in 2004 under an assumed identity. Odeh was eventually convicted of fraud and stripped of her American citizenship.

While most small business owners – particularly those with a new restaurant struggling to create a loyal customer base – would avoid making politics an feature at their establishment, for Assil, it’s part of the bakery’s mission.

Assil, 34, was raised in a Boston suburb by parents who immigrated to the US from Syria and the Gaza Strip.

For years, Assil has been active in radical left-wing and anti-Israel causes in the San Francisco Bay Area, and was a member of the Arab Resource and Organization Center (AROC), a fringe anti-Israel group responsible for organizing protests to block Israeli imports from entering the US.

by Georgy Porgy Saturday, Jul. 08, 2017 at 10:50 PM

It was hardly a "brutal attack", though you shudda seen Lara Kiswani take down a 60 something zio-bitch.

A good time was had by all. We had some members of the local antifa come for needed muscle, but they arrived too late- the police had already arrived

The hypocrisy of Reem Assil

by Ferdy Monday, Jul. 10, 2017 at 4:01 PM

Reem writes:

" We remain committed to our vision of building strong and resilient communities, and will continue to do so by building a sanctuary space for people to come together across cultures, generations, and experiences. "

She means a strong and resilient Jew-free, oops- Israeli-free- oops- zionist-free community.

No dissent allowed.

This is how Ellen Brotsky of Jewish voice for Peace "safely escorted customers".

Ellen was photograpghed reaching over the Reem's patio fence to grab a poster from a passing activist.

She then ripped up the poster.

Jewish Voice for Peace has done nothing to distance themselves from Ellen Broytsky's action or to denounce the assault and battery on the peaceful protester
