Israeli and Jewish officials in Denmark on Wednesday warned Jews to avoid openly wearing religious symbols and dress when moving about Copenhagen amid rising anti-Israeli sentiments.
"We advise Israelis who come to Denmark and want to go to the synagogue to wait to don their skull caps until they enter the building and not to wear them in the street, irrespective of whether the areas they are visiting are seen as being safe," Israel's ambassador to Denmark, Arthur Avnon, told AFP.
Avnon added that visitors were also advised not to "speak Hebrew loudly" or demonstrably wear Star of David jewelry, the news agency reported.
Denmark's national Jewish Religious Community organization has also advised its members, and those at the private Jewish school in Copenhagen, to exercise caution.
Caroline Jewish School headmaster Jan Hansen told daily Jyllands-Posten: "It is not something that we do officially, but if the issue comes up we would say (to our pupils) they should think twice before walking into certain areas of Copenhagen with a skull cap or Star of David."
The warnings come a few weeks after an attack on the Israeli embassy in Copenhagen, during which anti-Israel protesters gathered outside, throwing fireworks and spraying the embassy entrance wall with graffiti saying ""childkillers".
No one was injured during the incident and one person has since been charged in the attack.
Avnon said that after the attack, a lower-ranking officer from Denmark's foreign ministry had called the embassy offering to pay for some of the damage to the building, but that otherwise official Denmark had not reacted to the incident, AFP reported.
According to figures from the Jewish Belief Centre, the organization has received 37 reports of anti-Jewish incidents this year, predominantly in the heavily immigrant Noerrebro neighborhood and around the Jewish synagogue in central Copenhagen.
Denmark's Jewish community is estimated at between 6,000 and 8,000 people.
In September, a Jewish rabbinical college in Germany similarly warned its students against wearing kippot in public, after Rabbi Daniel Alter was attacked by four Arab youths in Berlin.
During WWII, the Danes evacuated the Danish Jews to Sweden in a heroic night sea rescue. The Danish king said that he would wear the yellow star demanded of Jews by the Nazis.
It wasn't only the king, all Danes wore the yellow star to prevent the Nazis from identifying the Jews. That was 69 years ago. Today it is not safe for a Jew to wear a kipah in Copenhagen! So sad!
Europe is lost.
Is it Islamophobic to ask just who these “anti-Israeli demonstrators” might be? Juat ordinary Danes, no doubt.
How long will Danish Jews wait to pack up and emigrate to friendlier climes?
The Nordic cultures countries are self destructing and going extinct. There are more practicing Muslims than Christians and the native birth rate has plummeted.
Muslims are racist anti-Semites. Who knew?
All those years fighting the Crusades when all the muslims had to do is wait for the commie libs to get into power and legally migrate into Europe and take over.
Nørrebro is also known for its poly-cultural society, mostly from Middle-Eastern background
If you guessed “The Amish”, you’d be wrong:
The world is a F-upped place.
How a great people (yes, those who helped King Christian X in World War II) how a great nation like Denmark can sink so low down into the cesspool of Hell...... ? What a crying shame!
Nuke Mecca and Medina now.
We’re not allowed to wear them on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
The article was very careful not to say who is responsible. The nearest the article comes to that is when it says “heavily immigrant Noerrebro neighborhood “
They deliberately and intentionally suppressed the word that we all know.
This is deliberate and intentional. The media like what’s happening.
But we are at the stage where mainstream media organs are happy to do pre-genocidal hatred stoking.
And that was just a few from one century. It's an old playbook, often used by socialists on their drive to final totalitarian power. Find a scapegoat, use him to whip up popular anger (for problems actually caused by socialist policies), wipe them out in a "final solution."
We can see this one coming from a mile away.
I'd hate to be a Jew in Europe. Or a Christian, in a decade.
Visit the great cathedrals of Europe now, before they become mosques.
How pathetic and sad, to see Western Civ wiped away by the barbarian hordes, brought in by elite Quisling traitors, in order to destroy a high mark in human advancement.
Ahhhh, another example of the “tolerant” “Religion of Peace.” (dripping in sarcasm.)How long is it going to take for the Western world to realize that the most intolerant religious group on this planet is Muslim.
So where do Jews go to be safe? The bearded savages kill them even in Israel (while the world turns its back)
I think the question should be ‘When will the Norwegian Jews stand up and draw a line in the sand, and fight to keep what is theirs?’
If Denmark truly was a Christian country, those Christians would begin wearing kipahs in public in support of their Jewish brothers. After all, salvation is from the Jews.
I wonder how many of those demonstrators at the Israeli embassy were Muslims and how many were Jew-hating native Danes. A sad situation indeed.
“Europe is lost.”
Western Civilization was good while it lasted.
I pray for the day Israel gets rid of that abomination on the Temple Mount.
I am a firm believer that when faced by a threat, you cannot respond to it reactively, or wait for government to step in on your behalf.
In this case, the Jews of Copenhagen should take up a collection to import some “hard boys” from Israel who know how to deal with such scum, and not leave evidence all over the place. Just a few such specialists and the level of violence directed at Jews would drop markedly.
And the perplexed authorities would most likely be led to believe that it was an “immigrant on immigrant” thing. And if done properly, it might even be turned into self-sustaining internecine strife, with no Jewish involvement at all.
Means - A Hebrew identifying with them in Denmark. “I am a Jewess” - or Ich Bin Ein Jude in Yiddish. Probably a fun movie for you or other to watch is called “The Hebrew Hammer”
“I think the question should be When will the Norwegian Jews stand up and draw a line in the sand, and fight to keep what is theirs?”
Except in America, Jews are not allowed be be armed in public. They are not allowed to carry concealed and certainly not openly. All Europeans are basically subjects in terms of history and orientation.
Only Americans are allowed private arms. Even Israeli’s are not allowed private arms for concealed or open carry. Military arms while in the military, yes. But because they allowed Muslims to live in Israel, it is too dangerous to allow Muslims to be armed and so private arms such as handguns are heavily regulated.
That was the long answer.
The short answer is that Jews will not get weapons and kill their enemies.
Sorry, but that is the way they are.
Your Proposal 26 is sheer brilliance!
The more things change, the more they remain the same. It’s a shame that Jews have to go through this kind of treatment again. I feel for them.
Where do you get that “Jordemoder” fairy tail story from, totally false, I was there born 1931 all five years. The King NEVER wore anything.Yes he supported the Danes, including the Jews who were considered Danes on the same level. Please get your facts straight before posting false rumors!!!
Where do you get these “facts” from. Yes, Malmo Sweden has a huge Muzzie population, but the Danes to the contrary has resisted the influx of Muzzies more than any of the other Scandinavian countries. Now they just got a Socialdemokrat government a year ago and things may change. However, not likely because there is a huge buyer remorse of the last election according to the polls taken!!!
Last I heard native birthrates were at about replacement level. The population of Norway (currently 5 million) is expected to rise by another million by 2030 though, so you are still right...
Never. The jewish comminities and organizations support mulyiculturalism and happily join with the muslims in condemning people objecting to the jihad or mass-migration.
“Please get your facts straight before posting false rumors!!!”
Sorry, but this one seems like hysteria. That ‘we’re victims’ stuff is offensive when it’s a reaction to something this small. Conservatives in Michigan were treated worse and they’re not huddling in small groups waiting for blows... afraid to whisper ‘conservative’...
One of the most ignorant posts ever.
dude..thank you ....I thought it was just me thinking that.
Somewhere Helen Thomas is cackling with Gorge Soros and Obama on a three way phone call
Is there any part of the world where Western culture and/or Christianity is winning?
Wherever you have rabid feminism, the opposite soon follows. Scandinavia was way ahead of the U.S. in single motherhood supported by the state, gay marriage, sex change operations (remember Christine Jorgensen in the early 60s?) and using non-gendered pronouns to refer to children in schools -- no more "he" or "she", "his" and "hers" -- just "hem" and "hes." Instead of the ending "sen" or "son" (son of) on surnames, Nordic women are now using "dottir" (daughter of), as in Jorgendottir.
Such craziness has led the way to Scandinavian cities becoming no-go zones of Islamists with multiple wives on welfare, where scandalous numbers of rapes of blond native Scandinavians are trophies.
