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.
