Non-Profit ‘Eat Up the Borders’ Removes The One Israeli Vendor From Event

Eat Up the Borders is a non-profit that tries to “help bring awareness amongst the immigrant owned business across the Philadelphia communities.”

Their website tells the story of two girls, one dream, and a future for all.

But to paraphrase George Orwell’s Animal Farm, all animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others. That “future for all” does not quite encompass all.

Of course, that is the generous view. There is a chance they themselves agree with the haters, and are using this as an excuse.

Can you imagine if someone threatened an event unless the Asian food truck was expelled? Do you think Eat Up The Borders would expel the Asian food truck, or do you think they would either a) cancel the entire event or b) hire security? I think you know the answer.

Once again, when it comes to ‘intersectionality,’ all minorities seem to be welcome except for one.

Update: They now seem to have removed their Facebook page.

Update: The event has now been cancelled.
