Anti-Israel Incidents Lead Ambassador to Caution in Copenhagen

Posted: Jan. 4th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

With the international debacle involving Israel's hostility – or retaliation, depending on sources – against Gaza still fresh on the minds of residents in Denmark's capital city Copenhagen, the Israeli ambassador to the country has urged Jews to take caution in giving outward signs of their origins in response to rising demonstrations against Israel.

JTA — Israel’s ambassador to Denmark reportedly warned Jews to avoid being identified as such in Copenhagen.


“We advise Israelis who come to Denmark and want to go to the synagogue to wait to don their skullcaps until they enter the building and not to wear them in the street, irrespective of whether the areas they are visiting are seen as being safe,” Amb. Arthur Avnon is quoted as telling AFP on Wednesday. The news agency reported that Avnon also advised visitors not to “speak Hebrew loudly” or demonstrably wear Star of David jewelry.
