Israeli Embassy in Denmark, Spanish synagogue vandalized


(JTA) — Anti-Israel protesters reportedly vandalized the Israeli Embassy in Denmark and a synagogue in Spain.

In Denmark, demonstrators on Tuesday who gathered outside the embassy near Copenhagen threw fireworks and sprayed the embassy walls with graffiti.

Two days earlier, some 20 protesters assembled outside the embassy in Hellerup spray-painted the words “Child killers” on the white walls that surround the Israeli diplomatic mission, according to the Coordination Forum for Countering Anti-Semitism, an international watchdog group.

On Tuesday in Barcelona, the forum reported that vandals spray-painted a red swastika and graffiti standing 13 feet high on the wall of the city’s Reform synagogue. The graffiti read, “Stop killing Gazas children, Israel kills, Zionist genocide assassins.” Earlier that day, some 200 people participated in an anti-Israel demonstration at Barcelona’s Plaza St. Jaume.
