McDonald’s won a contract to open in Ben-Gurion Airport. They will have two locations. One in the Sky Hall in Terminal 3 and the other at the hot dog stand in Terminal 1.
McDonald’s Israel is run by Omri Padan, a founder of the radical leftist organization Peace Now.
There were past attempts to block McDonald’s from opening in the past since Padan said he would not open a branch in the mall in Ariel because it is located in Yehuda and Shomron.
Right-wing groups said this is essentially a ‘boycott’ of those areas and companies that engage in such a ‘boycott’ should not be issued government tenders.
