Amsterdam (file)Flash 90

The home of a Jewish family in Amsterdam became the target of an anti-Semitic attack this past weekend.

According to Dutch media reports, during the New Year festivities held in Amsterdam, a number of local youth began rioting and sought to release their anger on Jews.

While shouting "Jews Cancer" and “liberate Palestine," they kicked down the door and broke windows of the house where a Jewish family resides, causing extensive damage.

Local police were called to the scene and began searching for the offenders, using footage from a nearby security camera.

The Jewish community in Amsterdam said that "this event brings us back to those times Jews were afraid to go out into the streets, the police must do all they can so the Jewish population can live without fear.”
