Google Terminates 28 Anti-Israel Employees After Protest

Google surprisingly fired 28 employees on Wednesday who participated in anti-Israel protests in the tech giant’s New York and California offices. The left-wing demonstrators objected to the company’s contract to provide cloud services to Israel.

A Google spokesperson told TechCrunch that the protesters disrupted operations at both locations. “Physically impeding other employees’ work and preventing them from accessing our facilities is a clear violation of our policies, and completely unacceptable behavior.”

The spokesperson added that 28 workers were given pink slips, and the investigation will continue and further action will be taken as warranted.

The misguided liberal demonstrators held signs and chanted slogans such as “No Tech For Apartheid,” which is the name of the group that organized the protests.

Google partnered with Amazon for Project Nimbus, a $1.2 billion effort that provides cloud services to the Israeli government and its powerful military. The country is currently engaged in a war with Hamas terrorists who murdered at least 1,200 citizens in October.

A now-former software engineer, Hasan Ibraheem, told the outlet that he demonstrated because Israel is committing “genocide” against Palestinians. He said petitions were ignored but this week’s protests will not be.

At least in that he was correct.

Some of the protesters donned Arab headscarves as they occupied the office of a Google executive in California.

In New York, a raucous group demonstrated in the Google offices in Manhattan, and others protested in Seattle. For a company with a decidedly leftist tilt, its response is at least momentarily encouraging.

Organizers claimed to be outraged by Google’s response to the Israeli war on Hamas terrorists. These are the same terrorists who carried out the Oct. 7 massacre, and Tel Aviv vowed to eradicate the group.

The group No Tech for Apartheid predictably protested the terminations. Spokesperson Jane Chung shared a statement declaring “Google indiscriminately fired 28 workers, including those among us who did not directly participate in yesterday’s historic, bicoastal 10-hour sit-in protests.”

The statement further blasted their former employers for showing more interest in the contract with the “genocidal Israeli government and military” than its own workers.

Of course, workers not affiliated with the mass disruption still have jobs.
