Propalestinian activists leave violent messages outside Israeli embassy in Denmark

A group of pro-Palestinian activists recently demonstrated in front of the Israeli embassy in Copenhagen in an otherwise peaceful demonstration. However, after the demonstration, the activists left several violent, terror-related messages outside the embassy. Among the messages left were expressions of support for Hamas’ militant arm, the Al-Qassam Brigades, as well as for Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar. Additionally, there was a derogatory remark written in Arabic saying “son of a Jew” and the words “a solution: Intifada” in English, referring to previous violent Palestinian uprisings against Israel. These messages were written in chalk on the road outside the embassy. Furthermore, a sticker with the image of the leader of the terrorist organization Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, was hung on a lamppost.

According to the Israeli embassy, which provided the information to B.T., the messages can be interpreted as “overt support for terrorism and antisemitism” as stated in a post from the embassy on the social media platform X. The demonstration, which took place on Saturday, May 18, was part of a larger protest organized by the group ‘Stop the Annexation of Palestine’. The demonstration originates from the organization International Forum, known for its activities on the far-left. Since last year’s terrorist attack in Israel, this group has been organizing weekly demonstrations. The larger demonstration with several thousand participants was supposed to continue to the Israeli embassy, but according to TV 2, it was stopped to ensure a peaceful protest. However, a smaller group of demonstrators still made their way to the embassy where they left the violent and terror-related messages.

Surveillance footage provided by the Israeli embassy to B.T. shows demonstrators writing the messages with chalk on the road outside the embassy. B.T. has tried to obtain a comment from the organizers of the demonstration, but despite several inquiries, they have not responded before the deadline.
