A horde of pro-Palestinian protesters spewing hateful threats at a Jewish-owned falafel shop in Philadelphia was put on notice by Pennsylvania’s governor after their “blatant act of antisemitism.”
Gov. Josh Shapiro’s rebuke came after dozens of enraged protesters marched on Goldie’s — an Israeli-style falafel spot located in Center City — on Sunday night, surrounding the storefront while chanting, “Goldie, Goldie, you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide.”
Shapiro shared the video of the mob while condemning their brazen threats.
“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.”
The Philadelphia chain is owned by Mike Solomonov, an Israeli-born citizen raised in Pittsburgh, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
