Palestinian-Israelis will suffer greatly for the sins of a few

Many Palestinian-Israelis throughout social media before the war with Hamas in 2021 have displayed their distaste for Israel and Jews.

Far-Right Israeli activists like Itamar Ben Gvir and Baruch Marzel have been active in tracking Israeli-Palestinians who put posts on social media promoting civil disturbances.

Itamar Ben Gvir has been turning to the employers of such people and having them fired from their job.

As the war has continued many Palestinian-Israelis have been going on strike in response to the war with Gaza.

Jewish employers who have no sympathy for Palestinian-Israelis siding with our enemies during time of war have terminated their employment and are looking for Jewish workers to replace the Palestinians.

There is a tremendous question of whether it is actually legal for employers to fire employees based on a strike.

It could very well be that there will be many lawsuits when this is over, and Jewish employers will have to pay out a lot for money to their Palestinian workers.

Even though the Arab rioters in Lod and other mixed cities may not be the majority of the Palestinian-Israeli population.

Images of seeing synagogues torched, Jewish property destroyed and Jewish citizens assaulted for being Jewish.

Many within the Israel-Jewish population will not want to employ or do business with Palestinian-Israelis for a long period of time.

Since the Second Intifada, there have been many attempts to repair the damage between both ethnic groups.

Jewish-Israelis see that Palestinian-Israelis are equal under the law and have upward economic mobility like any other citizen.

Joining in a strike against the war with Hamas and what many Jewish Israelis see them as siding with the enemy.

I do not see how employers will want to hire Palestinian-Israelis or do business with them in the near future.
