In Strasbourg, two complaints were filed on January 7 by two Jewish restaurateurs following the refusal, by a Deliveroo delivery person each time, to take charge of an order in their establishment, report our colleagues from Latest News from Alsace.
After this complaint, an investigation was opened and entrusted to the departmental security. At least one person was arrested and was still being questioned on Wednesday.
They received the support of the Israeli Ambassador
Israel’s ambassador to France, Daniel Saada, denounced Wednesday in Strasbourg a “manifestation of hatred” and expressed his support for restaurateurs.
“I have come to say that it is time that we understand that anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism are the same scourge that feeds and feeds the same ancestral hatred,” he told reporters. “As for the candidate for the Miss France contest boasted for having simply mentioned the Israeli origin of her father, it is still a manifestation of hatred that we must denounce and fight,” he added, referring to anti-Semitic messages who had targeted Miss Provence in December, and which led to the opening of an investigation for incitement to racial hatred.
The ambassador’s arrival was greeted by the two restaurateurs, who said they were “surprised and happy” with this show of support.
“This event shocked people, because Deliveroo is part of their daily life, it is people who come to their homes, and they realize that among the delivery men, some are malicious. […] This hatred of the Jews germinated in the rising generation, that of young adults, who are imbued with this anti-Semitism of which they do not even know the depths “, underlined Thierry Roos, spokesperson for the Israelite Consistory of Bas-Rhin.
An internal investigation at Deliveroo
“I was very shocked to learn of the incident,” said Melvina Sarfati El Grably, general manager of the company in France, in a message posted on social media. “Anti-Semitism, like any other form of racism, has no place with Deliveroo.”
