After a synagogue was firebombed in the Swedish city of Gothenburg on Saturday, Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet reported Monday that a second synagogue had been targeted in Malmo. According to the report, two firebombs were found at the site and had burned out on the spot. No injuries were reported. Police were investigating the incident as a suspected hate crime, according to Aftonbladet.

Sveriges Radio reported that on Friday, demonstrators at a rally in Malmo against the US declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of Jerusalem chanted: “We have announced the intifada from Malmö. We want our freedom back, and we will shoot the Jews.” 

Protests held in other European cities also involved antisemitic chants. In London, for instance, protesters shouted the notorious Jihadi chant ‘Khybar, Khybar’ outside the US Embassy. This "can only be interpreted as a call to incite violence against Jewish people," British Jewish leaders said in a statement released Monday.
