The Zionist Conspiracy
Thursday, January 08, 2004
I'm saddened by the report in The Jerusalem Post that Sbarro will be closing its store on the corner of King George and Jaffa streets.
During my last few trips to Israel, the store appeared to be doing better than most others, though not nearly as well as it did prior to being bombed in August 2001. From the time it opened in 1996 until the Palestinians waged their terrorist war in September 2000, Sbarro was among the most popular places in the area.
Sbarro's Jerusalem store will relocate to another location in the city, but the loss to the already devastated downtown area will be felt. In addition to Sbarro, many other once popular eateries have closed, including Burger King, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Nathan's, Bonkers and Pizza Hut.
According to Amir Chasson, Sbarro's director general: "For the last two and half years, despite the attack and a drop in sales, we were determined not to close down the branch for Zionist reasons, and out a determination not to let the terrorists win."
