Israeli Cafe Branch Orders Arab Employees to Stop Speaking Arabic


“Do not speak Arabic” was a racist order issued recently to Arab workers of an Aroma cafe branch in southern Israel by their manager.

According to Israel’s Channel 2, an Aroma cafe manger in a city south of Israel issued an order prohibiting workers from speaking the Arabic language between them or with Arab customers.

The cafe branch justified its measure by claiming it was aimed at preserving the dignity of the customers who do not understand Arabic.

Following this development, Arab Knesset member Yousef Jabbareen (the Join List) filed a complaint with the Israeli equal employment opportunity commission against the cafe, and asked it to investigate the matter and demand the cafe company to cancel its ban on speaking the Arabic language, describing it as ‘arbitrary and racist.”
