Jerusalem Post: “‘You son of a Jewess’: Pro-terrorist writing found outside Danish embassy”

Antisemitic and pro-terrorist messages were allegedly left outside Israel’s embassy in Denmark after weekend demonstrations by anti-Israel protesters, Israeli Ambassador David Akov said.

The curse “You Son of a Jewess” in Arabic was one of many chalk markings photographed by the embassy on the road outside the diplomatic mission in Copenhagen.

Other chalk markings read “al-Qassam” and “Sinwar” in reference to Hamas’s Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades and Gaza chief Yahya Sinwar.

The European Jewish Congress (EJC) said that the rhetoric was appalling and promoted hatred and violence against Jews.

“Our societies need to wake up and understand the meaning and intentions behind these messages,” said the EJC.
