Rabbi Margolin noted that he would turn to Brussels police regarding the matter and said in response: "The times when Jews hide their Jewishness are over."

"Those who have to hide themselves are the cowardly anti-Semites. We will double the amount of public menorahs and strengthen Jewish pride in Europe," he said.
