Thousands of Dutch Jews Suffer Anti-Semitism These Days

The conflict between Israel and Hamas has led to many threats against Dutch Jews.  According to a source which deals with the safety of Jewish citizens in south Amsterdam, cars are vandalized with swastikas.  Jewish families have removed the mezuzah – a roll of parchment which makes them identifiable as Jews – from their doorposts, in order to avoid becoming targets of violence.  The number of Jews who suffer from anti-Semitism in their environment is in the thousands.  Dennis Mok, the chairman of a security company, says that it provides security to 40 Jewish businesses and institutions. He recommends that all those who suffer from anti-Semitism should complain to the police.
