U.K. store threatened over Israeli cosmetics

Callers to a cosmetics store in Manchester, England, that sells Israeli cosmetics threatened to kill the staff and burn down the store.

Local police are investigating the ongoing threats against Kedem, the Jewish Chronicle reported.

The store has been the scene of daily anti-Israel protests since the start of Israel’s operation in Gaza in early July. Six anti-Israel protesters have been arrested.

Pro-Palestinian protesters also have posted threatening messages on the store’s Facebook page. — jta
