No-go Areas for Jews in Europe
by Giulio Meotti
Surprised that Israelis entering Jordan are required to deposit religious Jewish items, like skullcaps and tefillin, for "security reasons?
It's happening in many European countries as well, where Jews are once again in grave danger and Judeophobia has become the common currency of politics.
Jews in Denmark have just been warned by Israeli officials not to appear publicly wearing Jewish religious symbols such as yarmulkes or stars of David in order to avoid increasing anti-Israel and anti-Semitic altercations. "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," said Israel's ambassador to Denmark, Arthur Avnon.
