Police in Amsterdam are resorting to disguising themselves as “decoy Jews” in order to catch anti-Semitic attackers, The Daily Telegraph is reporting.The officers are dressed in Jewish religious dress such as skullcaps and go and travel in areas known as anti-Semitic bastions in the multi-cultural city.The mayor of Amsterdam Lodewijk Asscher ordered the new decoy strategy amid fears that anti-Semitism is rising in the Dutch capital, with most of the attacks coming from young men of Muslim immigrant origin.Local reports say Jews, in at least six Amsterdam neighbourhoods, often cannot cross the street wearing a skullcap without being insulted, spat at or even attacked.
Anti-semitism has to be one of the most bizarre forms of racism around. Don’t pretend this is about Israel/Palestine either. Insulting and spitting at Jews crossing the street isn’t going to solve a Mid East territorial dispute. Plenty of countries have separatist struggles, but you don’t see Tibetans arguing that China should be ‘wiped off the map‘.
Actually, come to think of it, what are Muslims even doing in Amsterdam? Legalised prostitution, legalised euthanasia, legalised marijuana…seems like the kind of decadence the Quran warns against, am I missing something here?
