Jews IntelUltra-Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem have protested outside the offices of the US firm, Intel, against the plant operating on the Jewish day of rest.
They have recently held a series of such protests in Israel, becoming increasingly militant in recent months in their attempts to enforce a Saturday work ban. Intel has been operating on Saturdays for years - and the company defends the policy saying that if the needs call for it, they work on the Sabbath as well.

Maitreya Rael made the following comments: these fanatic religious people trying to impose on everybody their own rules must be stopped. What is terrible is that if Muslim religious fanatics were doing the same, everybody would condemn them, but since they are Jews , there  are almost no condemnations . Why is it so? Is this double standard because the press is afraid to appear " antisemitic " ?
Religious fanaticism must always be condemned whether it comes from Muslims, Christians, Jews or from any religion.
