The Austrian Nazis are using terrorism in their attempts to enforce the Christmas boycott against the Jewish stores, using tear bombs in Jewish department stores and even in small stores owned by Jews.

Police captured some of the terrorists, who were sentenced to one months’ imprisonment each. However, the anti-Jewish boycott in Austria is not confined to the Nazis. Today, the Catholic leaders’ conference issued a statement urging Christians to do their Christmas shopping only in Christian stores.
