Restaurant in Portugal Vandalized by Jew Haters; Hit Due to Chef Attending Food Festival in Israel

Anti-Israel activists vandalized a restaurant in Portugal because its head chef participated in a food festival in Israel, the JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency) website reports today (November 20, 2016).

The perpetrators -- believed to be activists for the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel -- on the eve of November 18 spilled red paint on the front of the Cantinho do Avillez restaurant in the northern Portuguese city of Porto and posted several signs, including one reading "Free Palestine."

The attack followed picketing opposite the restaurant by BDS activists over the participation of chef Jose Avillez in the Round Tables festival in Tel Aviv, Israel this month.

Robert Singer, CEO of the World Jewish Congress, condemned the BDS movement for the hate crime, which he said was anti-Semitic.
