The first protest of Reem's: the only restaurant in Oakland openly devoted to the genocide of the Jews

Well, today I attended our little protest of Reem's bakery/restaurant in Oakland.

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?

  1. There are no words to express my disgust at the Jew hating owner and those who support her Jew hate by working there and shopping there. A curse on the lot of them.

    1. They believe they are righteous. That's antisemitism for you.

    2. Precisely. They believe that Israel stole the land of the indigenous Palestinian population and then instituted a brutal and unjust occupation that continues to this day... but you guys know this already.

      btw, there is more to the story. Faith was attacked shortly after I left. If I understand her correctly someone grabbed her sign while another person, a woman, went for her purse.

    1. A few half-hearted efforts to let the ownership know that me and a half dozen aging Jews aren't happy with them. The mural will stay up and Reem will feel righteous for standing up to the man.

  3. I think there needs to be sustained effort against this restaurant. You don't need all that many people, just a lot dedication. People who will show up over and over with an unconditional demand, without the usual apologetics or acknowledgements of "occupation." This has nothing to do with any occupation. It's only an excuse to screw the Jews.

  4. A billboard in sight of the entrance that reveals the actual hate and bigotry they celebrate.

  5. I was actually looking forward to eating there! I friggin' love Mediterranean food and Arabic food and all that. I even went in right around the time that they opened and looked at a menu and thought how this could be a good place to pick up a quick bite on my way in and-or out of SF.

    I bet that mural was there and I did not even notice. I was focusing on the menu not some picture on the wall.

    In any case, I do not know how this play out.

    I gotta tell ya, tho, it is mighty weird to walk by a restaurant into the Fruitvale BART that has the smiling visage of a woman who is both a murderer of Jews and contemporary feminist icon.

    And people still think that Jews are under some obligation to vote for the left!

    {The stupidity reaches a depth that I simply cannot understand it.}

    1. How is she a feminist? As a symbol of a woman's right murder Jewish men and then skirt (is that misogynist?) US immigration laws?
      "Palestine" and feminism go together like mud and soap.

    2. She's as much "feminist" as any Nazi war criminal.

    2. Linda Sarsour is selling Sharia as feminism and jihad as liberalism. Unfortunately, the SF Bay Area has long been a petri dish for nutty ideas.
