Antwerp  – Dozens of men at
an anti-Israel demonstration in Antwerp shouted slogans about slaughtering
Jews.

 

Approximately 500 people attended Saturday’s protest in the capital of
Belgium’s Flemish region, where one of the speakers used a loudspeaker to chant
a call in Arabic that means “slaughter the Jews.”

 

The demonstration against Israel’s assault on Hamas in Gaza happened
amid a wave of anti-Semitic attacks in Western Europe that coincided with the
Israeli actions, and one day before a similar demonstration in Paris escalated
into what European Jewish Congress President Moshe Kantor called an “attempted
lynch” outside a local synagogue.
