"It's scary. Now it has come even nearer," observed Henri Goldstein, who is the president of the jewish community.

The organized group of nazis was last in focus in november, when the jewish cemetery in Randers was vandalized.

in the wake of the extensive vandalism was one of the leaders in the Nordfront in custody in the case. In the jewish society in Denmark is the sticker yet another among many of the anti-semitic incidents that they experience. It plays an important role that the synagogue is a sanctuary, where many members of the religious community are coming daily.

"In the jewish cemetery, they live no longer, but the synagogue we use every day," says Henri Goldstein.

He is generally concerned about the growing jødehad, which characterizes Europe as well as Denmark. The concern becomes only greater when the sender is an organized nazi movement that have been active in spreading anti-semitism in cities across the country.

"obviously It is a group, which will mark themselves in the Danish society, and they are more active than we thought," says Henri Goldstein.

"We fear that they can go longer than vandalism. We fear that they will become violent."

The jewish community stresses, however, that they experience great support from the Justistsministeren and the authorities in general.
