Barbarians at Intel's Gate

The news that 1,500 ultra-Orthodox Jews ransacked a newly-opened Intel factory in Jerusalem over the weekend -- because it stayed open on Shabbat -- is terribly disturbing, especially considering that Intel and companies like Intel are proving to be Israel's economic salvation, as Dan Senor and Saul Singer point out in their excellent, "Start-Up Nation," about which you can read more here.  Israel-Intel employees described the events as a "pogrom" and had already installed a barbed wire fence around the factory in preparation for something like this. Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin, who mediated talks with representatives from both sides, has proposed a compromise that would require only 60 non-Jewish workers to work on Saturday, but it hasn't been finalized yet, and the clip below suggests that reason was abandoned long ago.
