Dutch Police Fighting Anti-Semite Attacks With "Decoy Jews" 1

Dutch police are employing a new weapon in the battle against hate crimes, the "decoy Jew." Not to be confused with a Jew decoy, the decoy Jew is a police man dressed in Jewish religious garb and not a facsimile composed of wood or clay. From the article: "Lodewijk Asscher, Amsterdam's mayor, has ordered the new decoy strategy to cut the number of verbal and physical attacks on Jews, amid fears that anti-Semitic 'hate crime' is on the rise. 'Jews in at least six Amsterdam neighborhood's often cannot cross the street wearing a skullcap without being insulted, spat at or even attacked,' according to local reports."
