Jewish groups angered at absence of Israeli flag at diversity festival
A city hall request that the Israeli flag not be displayed at a street festival intended to promote diversity has Jewish community leaders wondering what "diversity" really means to some city leaders.
During planning meetings for September's Smag Verden – Mangfoldighedsfest, a celebration of the foods and cultures of different countries, Jewish participants were warned that some would interpret the flying of the Israeli flag as a provocation.
"We were told that is was better if we did not fly our flag," Malgorzata H Hansen, who represented local Jews at the meetings, told Berlingske newspaper.
