LESTER HOLT: Tonight, the White House is condemning a pro-Palestinian protest outside a Jewish-owned restaurant in Philadelphia as completely unjustifiable and antisemitic. Stephanie Gosk is there for us tonight. 

STEPHANIE GOSK: At Goldie falafel shop in Philadelphia, a lunchtime rush. Little sign of the scene Sunday night, where police say 400 to 500 protesters gathered. 

MOB: Goldie, Goldie, you can't hide. We charge you with genocide!

GOSK: They accused the restaurant co-owned by Israeli chef Michael Solomonov of supporting genocide in Gaza. Today the White House called the protest antisemitic. Pennsylvania's governor said it echoed 1930s Germany. 

GOV. JOSH SHAPIRO: The purposeful gathering of a mob outside of a restaurant simply because it is owned by a Jewish person, well, that's antisemitism, plain and simple.
