Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat spoke out strongly in an interview with Army Radio on Friday against the actions of Ashkelon Mayor Itamar Shimoni, who stopped the city’s employment of Arab workers doing renovation to bomb shelters in local daycare centers, in response to the terror attack in Jerusalem by Arabs from East Jerusalem earlier this week.

"I cannot help but to think of where we were 70 years ago in Europe," said Barkat referring to European anti-Semitism during the time of the Holocaust. "We cannot generalize as they did to to Jews. Here in Jerusalem, we have tens of thousands of Arab workers. We must make a clear distinction."
