Denmark is considering a ban on circumcision. That has some Jews thinking about leaving.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (JTA) — In 2015, a jihadist killed a Jewish guard outside this capital city’s main synagogue, where Hannah Bentow was having her bat mitzvah party.

Her sense of security as a Jew in Denmark was shattered, she told JTA last week. Bentow and dozens of teenagers stayed inside for hours as police pursued and later killed the man who gunned down the volunteer guard, Dan Uzan.

But Bentow said her decision to leave for Israel as soon as she finishes high school was sealed and reaffirmed by the precedent-setting steps undertaken this year in this Scandinavian country toward banning nonmedical circumcision of boys. The Danish parliament is set to become the first in the European Union to vote on a nonbinding motion calling to prohibit the practice.

The ruling parties said they would oppose a ban or a call for one, but the debate about it “makes me feel like I don’t belong, and like Denmark doesn’t want me to belong, either,” Bentow said.

Gaza Palestinian group says it will launch 5,000 incendiary kites and balloons at Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A group of Palestinians that claims to be behind the initiative to send incendiary kites and balloons from Gaza into southern Israel said it would launch 5,000 of the arson tools on Friday.

The group, which calls itself the kite builders unit, also said at a news conference Thursday afternoon in central Gaza that it would extend the range of the kites up to nearly 25 miles from the border.

Friday is Eid al-Fitr, a holiday that comes the day after the monthlong fast of Ramadan. Large protests are expected at the Gaza border on Friday.

Also Thursday, the Israel Defense Forces fired a warning shot at Gaza Palestinians as they prepared to launch a helium balloon carrying flammable material into southern Israel.

Israel praises Trump administration, Nikki Haley for support in UN over Gaza

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the Trump administration and the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, for its support of Israel during a U.N. General Assembly emergency meeting on Gaza.

On Wednesday evening, the General Assembly in a 120-8 vote passed a resolution condemning Israel for an “excessive use of force” during weekly Palestinian protests on the Gaza border and rejected a U.S. bid to amend the resolution to also condemn Hamas, the terrorist group that controls the Gaza Strip. Among those voting against the measure were Israel, the United States and Australia. There were 45 abstentions.

The U.S. amendment passed 62-58 but failed to win the required two-thirds majority to be appended on the resolution.

“Israel appreciates the Trump administration’s steadfast support for Israel at the United Nations and Ambassador Haley’s strong statement today exposing the hypocrisy of the UN’s bias against Israel,” Netanyahu said late Wednesday night in a statement. “The U.N.’s incessant focus on Israel not only brings shame to the organization. It also draws attention away from so many other pressing issues that demand the attention of the international community,”
