Antizionist American Jew Dr Norman Finkelstein has said that Israeli occupation “is following the footsteps of evil people by closing Palestinian bakeries.”
On his Facebook wall, Finkelstein wrote: “Following in the footsteps of the most evil people in history, Zionists starve Palestinians by closing down bakeries.”
His comment followed an Israeli decision to close a famous Palestinian bakery in the Old City of the occupied Palestinian city of Jerusalem last week.
Israeli occupation authorities accused the bakery of supplying tradition Palestinian bread, Ka’ek, for the Palestinian worshipers at Al Aqsa Mosque.
Crews from the Israeli municipality and Israeli police stormed the bakery, owned by Abu Naser Abu Sneineh, in the neighbourhood of Bab Hittah and arrested son of the bakery’s owner.
The Israelis municipality closed the bakery, claiming it did not follow working conditions; however, the owner of the bakery stressed that it meets all Israeli occupation conditions, including paying taxes.
