‘Sabbath’ protest targets Intel

Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem have protested outside the offices of the US firm, Intel, against the plant operating on the Jewish day of rest…

Intel has been operating on Saturdays for years – and the company defends the policy.

The Bible clearly teaches:

8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates (Exodus 20:8-10).

The fact is that Intel has violated the above for years, so other than the fact that talks did not work, why protest now?

It has long been my opinion (often posted at this news page) that as we get closer to the end that the more religiously inclined Jews in Israel will ultimately impose more of their wishes (such as resuming sacrifices) within Israel.

Today’s protest may simply be a step in the more religious among the Jews deciding that they need to take more public steps in order to get more of their religious views implemented within Israel.
