The owners of the restaurant aren't murdering innocents. They aren't the Israeli government and have zero association with the Israeli government except for one thing, and that thing is that they're Jewish.

They are being targeted and harassed because they're Jewish. That is the literal definition of anti-Semitism, and that you're excusing their bullshit is frankly disgusting.
