TARGETED: Jewish-Owned Shop in Philly Stormed by Protesters, 'Blatant Antisemitism' [WATCH]

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.04.23

A large mob of pro-Palestinian protesters gathered outside a Jewish-owned restaurant in Philadelphia over the weekend in what Penn. Governor Josh Shapiro is calling a “blatant act of antisemitism.”

“Tonight in Philly, we saw a blatant act of antisemitism — not a peaceful protest,” Shapiro posted on X, formerly Twitter.

“A restaurant was targeted and mobbed because its owner is Jewish and Israeli. This hate and bigotry is reminiscent of a dark time in history.”

Watch the clip below:

From The New York Post:

The Philadelphia chain is owned by Mike Solomonov, an Israeli-born citizen raised in Pittsburgh, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Shapiro said he has “communicated” with Solomonov following the terrifying scene, saying he and his wife Lori “look forward to breaking bread there with them again soon.”

Other Pennsylvania politicians joined Shapiro in calling out the group’s antisemitic chants.

“I can’t believe I even have to say this but targeting businesses simply because they’re Jewish-owned is despicable. Philadelphia stands against this sort of harassment and hate,” Rep. Brendan Boyle posted on X.

“I support freedom of speech but harassing business owners simply because they are Jewish is unacceptable and deeply anti-Semitic,” Center City’s incumbent Rep. Ben Waxman added.

The scene at the Philly eatery unfolded just hours after a similar antisemitic gathering at the University of Pennsylvania.
