Jewish home attacked in Amsterdam by new year revellers yelling “Cancer Jews”

Reports have emerged that a Jewish family’s home was attacked on new year’s eve in Amsterdam by antisemitic revellers. According to a Facebook post, teenagers shouting antisemitic abuse attacked the home. The post, apparently by the owner of the home, said: “Last night, a few teens decided their celebrations are not complete without some hatred. While yelling ‘Cancer Jews’ and ‘Free Palestine’ they kicked our doors and windows.”

NL Times reported that members of the family were outside when local youths started shouting at them. They then threw fireworks at the Jewish family and pushed firecrackers through the letterbox.
