Pro-Palestinian protesters gathered outside an Israeli-American falafel shop in Philadelphia on Sunday and charged the owners with “genocide” for their support of Israel after Hamas’ terror attacks on Oct. 7, according to CBS News.
The store is owned by Chef Michael Solomonov, who is Israeli, and he announced in October that his business would be raising funds for the charity Friends of United Hatzalah, which provides emergency services to those injured in Israel, according to CBS News. A protest, organized by the Philadelphia Free Palestine Coalition (PFPC), marched to Goldie and began chanting that the business was complicit with “genocide.”
“Goldie, Goldie you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide,” the crowd chanted, according to a post on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Is it the Palestinians who seek the genocide of Jews?
“A temporary pause is not what we asked for, we demand a complete end to the siege on Gaza and an end to the U.S complicity with Israel,” the post’s caption reads. “Meet us at Rittenhouse Square Park at 4:30 and the march will start at 5 pm! Let’s keep the momentum going.”
“A restaurant was targeted and mobbed because its owner is Jewish and Israeli,” Shapiro wrote. “This hate and bigotry is reminiscent of a dark time in history.”
Goldie did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment. The DCNF was unable to contact the PFPC.
