Bankrupt Foodbenders Owner Kimberly Hawkins Bares Her Antisemitic Teeth Again

Kimberley Hawkins is the terror-supporter and Jew-hater who owned Toronto restaurant Foodbenders. It made the news in 2020 after she declared “Zionists not welcome”, and the backlash against her business has ultimately resulted in her declaring bankruptcy, closing the doors on Foodbenders (hopefully for good).

Hawkins has maintained she is an “anti-Zionist-not-antisemite,” and once wrote on Instagram:

“The first thing I will say is that I love Jewish people and they are welcome in my store. I have never said anything about Jewish people.”

even though as I have shown, she really does seem to detest Jews.

Alas, Hawkins, like countless Jew-haters before her, cannot keep up the charade. She has just slipped up again with this recent Instagram post:


Chocolate is native Israeli food and iPhones are Israeli tech so it’s okay. It’s not theft – they are decolonizing the airport because it was promised to them by God thousands of years ago. I wish reporters could offer some nuance here. The title seems antisemitic.

Note how Hawkins immediately insinuates the culprits were Jewish Israelis, even though as I have shown, they were almost certainly Arab-Israelis. And since she certainly considers Arab-Israelis to be “palestinians,” do the math.

But more than that, the dig about “promised to them by God thousands of years ago” is clearly mocking Jewish belief, and the “title seems antisemitic” is mocking the very serious issue of antisemitism.

On her website schnorring for money to cover her legal expenses, Hawkins has a section called “No IHRA”, which opposes the IHRA working definition of antisemitism. It is no wonder she would be doing that.

Update: It is no surprise she would be retweeting vile antisemites like Syrian girl Maram Susli
