During a community meeting in a gentrifying neighbourhood in Point Breeze, Philadelphia, local activists shouted antisemitic comments to Jewish real estate developers, forcing the meeting to end.

Activists with Concerned Citizens of Point Breeze reportedly shouted “Go back to Israel”, “Go back to Lakewood [a Jewish neighbourhood]” and other such comments whilst developers were making presentations.

“This was not one person with a screw loose. This was a mob mentality,” Ori Feibush, a local developer who is Jewish but was not presenting at the meeting, told Philly.com.
