A man waving a Palestinian flag in Amsterdam’s Willemspark avenue, one of the richest areas in the Dutch capital, could be seen launching an attack on a Jewish restaurant yesterday, in protest of President Trump announcing that the US government will as from now recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
The video is showing the 29-year-old smashing the windows of the Kosher restaurant whilst he screamed 'Allahu Akbar,' God is Great. A Dutch Jewish organization has already branded it as 'an act of terror'.

Police at first tried to speak to the attacker, fearing that he had other weapons besides the piece of wood he used to trash the windows, but then proceeded to use pepper spray to subdue him.
The Organization of Jewish Communities in The Netherlands stated: “We are disgusted.
The attack was 'an act of revenge, meant to instill fear, and is no less than an act of terror.”
It is feared that all across the Middle East today, more attacks and rebellious acts will follow as terror group Hamas has called for a “day of rage” Friday, urging Palestinians to protest President Donald Trump’s plan to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv.
The group designated a terrorist organization by the US, encourages Palestinians in an official Arabic statement to send a message “with all available means” to Israel after the upcoming Friday prayers.
The Hamas Statement read: “We call on the people of Palestine to declare‘rage day’ on Friday against Israel, denying the U.S. plan to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.”
"The youth and the Palestinian resistance in the West Bank need to respond by all means available to the U.S. decision that harms our Jerusalem. Jerusalem is a red line, and the resistance will not allow any desecration of it.”
