Watch: Day of rage reaches Holland
A Palestinian was arrested on Thursday morning after he smashed the windows of a kosher restaurant in Amsterdam. Security cameras caught the incident on tape. While smashing the windows, the man was holding a Palestinian flag and shouting “Allahu Akbar.”
In the footage, passersby and police officers are seen watching the Palestinian take his anger out on the restaurant with a metal rod. The two police officers at the scene took the enraged Palestinian down only after he stormed the restaurant and came out with the owner’s Israeli flag.

Eye-witnesses told the local AT5 television channel that the man shouted pro-Palestinian slogans and said that his actions were a response to US President Donald Trump’s announcement concerning Jerusalem.
The son of the restaurant owner said that the attack was very scary. “No one has ever seen anything like that,” he explained. “We are all worried. It happens sometimes that people spit inside [the restaurant] but we’ve never seen anything like this.”
