Israeli woman refused service at Florida gas station; called ‘killer’ by attendant
the Jewish journal ^ | 8/25/14 | Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz

Posted on 09/01/2014 4:01:50 PM PDT by Nachum

An Israeli woman, a resident of Coral Springs, Fla., for 15 years, was recently denied service and asked not to return again to a gas station ("On the Move Texaco" owned by J&L Services of Florida Inc.) that she had frequented over the years.

On her most recent visit, a Palestinian employee of the gas station told her: “You guys are killers and your money is not welcome here." While the employee was not on the corporate side of the company, this incident, nonetheless, is another call for alarm among the Jewish population.

Because of my concern about the statement, I called the Shell station and spoke to the store manager, Darrell Glover. He assured me that this was not normal and that this employee would be let go today. He sends sincere apologies and assured me that this would never happen again.

Since the conflict between the Israeli Defense Forces and Hamas has been at an all-time high, incidents of anti-Semitism have become more frequent around the world: Synagogues in France and Germany have been firebombed by street mobs. Even in Los Angeles, a city with a sizable Jewish population, a peaceful pro-Israel rally last month became violent as pro-Hamas protesters attacked those marching in support of the Jewish state. In Britain, a rabbi was attacked near a Jewish boarding school. In Australia, teenagers shouted “Heil Hitler” and threated to slit the throats of Jewish schoolchildren. And even though it was never officially declared a hate crime, the recent murder of Rabbi Joseph Raskin in North Miami, whose only offense was walking to shul on Shabbos, raises serious concerns about the safety of Jews wherever they may be.

Shell or Texaco. The story seems to be week on that point. What with a journalism degree being a CrackerJack(tm) prize, I'm not surprised.

Almost 70 years ago today the New York Times published a story by one of their reporters who had just visited the first large and intact death camp liberated by the Soviets. But in just 70 years anti-Semitism is again thriving.

What is going on is modern anti-Semitism is (very thinly) disguised as anti-Israel sentiment.

Chill. Matthew 24 is going on. The Lord spoke of this. Why the surprise? You think the Lord lies or exaggerates?

The rest of us are overjoyed because it means we are out of this shithole very soon.

Last I heard, there is still no evidence to indicate that this crime was race or religion related. They have no suspects or motives.

The story is based on an original report that says Shell but identifies the parent company of the location as “On the Move Texaco.”
It’s kind of moot as these are all franchises that just sell gasoline under a name.
The franchise is actually owned by a Jewish guy, LOL.
Equal opportunity employer I guess....

The administration keeps importing or letting this kind of human filth into America. Expect major troubles going forward. This is why he’s bringing them in here, and letting even more terrorists and murderers just walk in across mostly undefended borders.

Has any local or regional Jewish leader come out of late to advise Jews to arm themselves? While there are Jewish gun organizations, what is needed are local and regional cultures that encourage the carrying of guns by adults.

It's a good start. But, it's one thing for the store manager to tell a reporter that the employee would be let go, and to ask the reporter to send his apologies to the lady.

What needs to happen is for the store owner to issue a formal statement that the employee has been let go. Then, the store owner needs to personally apologize to the lady. If the owner was truly responsive, he would give the lady at least a few hundred dollars of free fill-ups. It's the least he could do for someone who has been a customer of his for years and who has been the victim of hate speech by an employee of his establishment.

From what I understand, a lot of the manual labor in Israel is done by Palis. It’s pretty common over there.

Shell or Texaco.

I normally don’t go to bat for the lack of editors etc but I believe Shell/Texaco merged about the same time Esso/Mobil and BP/Chevron.

Some of the older stations kept the old name etc...

The lady should have asked the PLO gas passer attendant very politely if he was very very sure that his information was correct and when he said yes ......shoot him.

That would be the scene in the movie I would like to have seen....:o)

= = = = = = = = = =
The 1998/99 merger consisted of Exxon/Mobil, Shell/Texaco and BP/Chevron.

When trying to ‘verify’ my data, it did have a story that the Shell/Texaco may not go through (dtd 99 or so).

So, you apparently have ‘enlightened’ me ... Tks...

I am a pretty firm believer in “Trust but Verify” and if the subject were to have come up in person I would have stuck to my original story....<: <: <:

Shell and Texaco had “joint-ventured” their refining. When Texaco was bought by Chevron, they terminated their joint venture.

The problem with all too many Jews is that they hate themselves almost as much as Pali’s and Muzzie’s hate them. The simple solution is for 25 Jews to show up at the gas station to get gas at the same time and then leave their cars parked there for six hours. And then do it again the next day and the next day and the next day...
