Well, that Copenhagen Yarmulke (Kippah) March didn’t solve anything
We previously featured the Yarmulke (Kippah) March in Copenhagen, after a series of attacks on Jews wearing Jewish symbols or dress:
- Copenhagen “Yarmulke March” held with minor disruptions
- “Yarmulke March” planned for Copenhagen to protest anti-Semitic violence
At the end of my last post I predicted:
While it’s great that the march was held, it’s a shame that it needed to be held in the first place.
It will, of course, change nothing, as the interruptions and heckling showed.
And so it comes true just days later, via The Copenhagen Post, Copenhagen Jewish school vandalised:
When students and teachers arrived this morning at Carolineskolen, a private Jewish school in Copenhagen’s Østerbro neighbourhood, they were greeted by shattered windows and anti-Semitic graffiti on the walls of the school.
The school, which is home to 200 students, had apparently been vandalised sometime on Thursday night.
The vandals cut through a fence to gain access to the property, according to TV2 News.
Additional reports detail the graffiti:
A Jewish school in Copenhagen had its windows smashed and anti-Jewish graffiti spray-painted on its walls, AFP reported on Friday. The messages included “no peace in Gaza” and “no peace to you Zionist pigs.”
The school, which includes a nursery, describes itself as the world’s second oldest still functioning Jewish school in Denmark.
“We know that a political message has been written on the walls, but we don’t know who is responsible,” Jan Hansen, headmaster of Carolineskolen school, told AFP. “There have been parents who didn’t want to send their children to school today and there have been some children who were sad and a bit afraid who we had to send home.”
Politiken has more reporting:
There has been widespread condemnation, as reported here (Danish).
I doubt the condemnation will do any more good than the Yarmulke March.
