Re: “Reem's Serves Arab Delights for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

When we held peaceful protests and vigils at Reems to honor the young victims, Leon Kanner and Edward Joffe, of the brutal 1969 supermarket bombing by Rasmea Odeh and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a well-known terrorist organization, Reem Assil repeatedly attempted to silence us. Local security and the Oakland Police Department asked us to leave over and over again. When she couldnt stop us this way, she filed lawsuits against some of the protesters. But we knew our First Amendment Rights and wouldnt be silenced and prevailed. Apparently, Assil only cares to protect free speech if it agrees with her own views. Reem Assil chooses to express her free speech right by having a giant mural of Rasmea Odeh convicted murderer of two high school students on the wall of her cafe. How can she expect anyone who knows the truth to stay silent as she chooses to honor a vicious killer and dishonor the two young men we remember today and will continue to remember? It is a cruel thing she has done and it is a message of hatred and violence.
