The Belgian League Against Antisemitism (LBCA)  filed a complaint on Wednesday with the mayor of  Saint-Nicolas, Jacques Heleven, against the proprietors of a cafe that hung up a sign banning Jews from entering the establishment, Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot reported.

According to Yediot, the owners of the cafe are likely to have Turkish origins.

The objection was lodged in accordance with a 1981 Belgian law banning acts of a xenophobic or racist nature.

The sign read, “Dogs are permitted to enter this establishment but Jews are not under any circumstances.” A French version of the text replaces “Jews” with “Zionists.”

The window display also included a Palestinian flag, an Israeli flag crossed out with a red “X”, and two Palestinian kaffiehs hanging alongside.
