After December’s latest attack on HaCarmel Restaurant in Amsterdam, the owner of the oft targeted Jewish eatery has decided that he will need to “close it down unless city officials install permanent security measures outside his business.” The business is currently open, but may close should the city not assist with providing ongoing security.
“In December, a 29-year-old Syrian asylum seeker smashed the restaurant’s window while holding a Palestinian flag. He then broke into the restaurant as two police officers watched and took out an Israeli flag from inside the restaurant before they arrested him.”
According to the restaurant owner, “the restaurant’s windows were again smashed once and are repeatedly spat on and smeared with garbage. Police beef up security after each incident but leave shortly after.”
