Chief Rabbi: More and More Dutch Jews are Afraid

Chief Rabbi Binyomin Jacobs said on National Liberation Day that more and more Jews are afraid. He added “Many Jews think back to the prelude of the Second World War. There is fear.” He said that during the war, his father’s windows were stoned and nowadays his windows are stoned. Jacobs added: “If I walk on Saturday afternoon to the synagogue, people yell out insults to me. Not only near the mosque, but near the hockey field by the autochthonous Dutch. A Jewish man who studies on Saturday afternoon with me doesn’t dare walk alone in the street. The board of our organization has prohibited me to travel alone on the train or to be near a station.” Furthermore, the Rabbi mentioned the debate on the prohibition of ritual slaughter. He said: “Hitler also started with a prohibition of kosher slaughter.”
