JNS.org A protest against Israel’s Operation Protective Edge turned violent in Frankfurt, Germany over the weekend, with protesters hurling stones at police and another protester using a police megaphone to shout “child murderer Israel” and “Allahu Akhbar” to demonstrators.

According to the German daily Frankfurter Rundschau, nearly 2,000 people attended the pro-Gaza protest, with several Islamists and local neo-Nazi groups there.

Local German leaders have sharply criticized how the police handled a situation in which a protester was apparently given access to a German police car’s megaphone and began shouting anti-Israel and anti-Semitic slogans.

“I’m shocked that a German police car was used to spread hatred and agitation,” the head of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Dieter Graumann, told The Associated Press. “It was a big mistake that the police let themselves abuse for this.”

Frankfurt police also confirmed that a local synagogue had been vandalized, with the anti-Semitic slogan “F*** the Jews” written on the synagogues walls.

The violent protest in Frankfurt comes as anti-Israel rioters in France attacked two Paris synagogues as part of a larger violent protest against Operation Protective Edge in Paris’s Bastille Square over the weekend.
