A MOVEMENT LEADING an ad campaign in Jerusalem against the employment of Arabs has petitioned the High Court of Justice against the Welfare and Labor Ministry’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission after the government agency ordered it to take down its ads.
The campaign was launched in the wake of a wave of terror attacks in the capital, which began in October 2015. At the time, the attacks stirred public debate, leading to several demonstrations in Jerusalem against the employment of Arabs.
The ads, which were posted in several streets in Jerusalem, read: “Business owner, do you have an employee who expresses joy at the murder of Jews? Are you unsure about his intentions? Legally, he cannot be fired, that is racism. You have to employ a worker even if he endangers your life.”
