Intel's factory in Jerusalem has drawn a lot of attention lately. The Hasidic Jewish population that lives in the Jerusalem area is unhappy with the fact that the factory is operating on Saturday, also known as The Sabbath [the Jewish day of rest]. A protest took place during the weekend with many protestors rioting in front of the factory, throwing stones and using violence against Israeli journalists and photographers. In the past weeks, there have been similar protests by rioters at other places of business for the same reason.

Intel employs around to 6,500 people in Israel. "We at Intel Israel are operating in accordance with our business needs and in accordance with the law." said Intel Israel spokesman Koby Bahar.

If they want to work let them work! There are other religions in the world that don't require you to rest on a certain day or you'll go to hell. I never understood why people need religion.

What a bunch of hypocrite losers. It's wrong for Intel to work on Saturday, but it is OKAY to protest on Saturday.

According to the Jewish religious laws, you can't violate Sabbath, unless it's a matter of life or death. In fact, you aren't even allowed to judge other people.

Most of the Israeli people don't like those Hasidim people, because they refuse to serve in the military and a lot of them are freeloaders (living off social security).

I truly hope Intel won't shut down this factory because of them.

Just round them all up and move them to the settlements in the west bank. That will take care of two problems at one time. lol

As much as I hate Intel's corporate attitude, Hasidim Jews can get fucked as far as I'm concerned.

This is the SAME here close to where I live. I am in a pretty large town called Laval north of Montreal. On our North Shore there's a town called Boisbriand (phonetically translated to English it means ShinyWood lol). There's actually a Hasidim Jew settlement there. Their streets are full of toys and scrap, they have their OWN POLICE. Everybody hates them, so do I.

I would not even call them Jews. It's it would be the same as calling Christians, Christian Jews....They are so far from each other now.

Geesh i understand the importance of Shabbath, but for Yhwh sake not everybody in Israel is a Jew, here in Mexico the official day off is SUNDAY, so i MUST work on Saturday too... this is everywhere in Mexico, you either like it or not. Unless the Federal laws in Israel prohibit work on Saturday, then Intel is messing up bad... if not, our brothers are making too much of this.
