Machane Yehuda: Businesses Employing Arabs to be Marked


Chairman Bentzi Gopstein of the Lehava anti-assimilation organization told Arutz Sheva, Thursday, of a new initiative to map stores in Jerusalem's Machane Yehuda market and mark which employ Arabs and which employ Jews. Gopstein says the group intends to distribute its maps at the entrance to the market, as well as in Judea and Samaria, starting next week. Similar mapping programs are scheduled for the Carmel and Tikva-neighborhood markets.

Gopstein said the group is trying to help the Jews in the market make a living. He said one of the mappers was recently detained by police after Arabs in the market took him for a hilltop youth and suspected him of preparing price-tag vandalism.
