The European Union vowed, “Europe will not be intimidated” in the wake of another round of Paris-style terror attacks over the weekend striking the Danish capital of Copenhagen.

“The European Commission and the High Representative (Federica Mogherini) deplore the attacks in Copenhagen costing the life of at least two citizens and injuring several others,” said the EU delegation to Israel in a statement sent to media by email late Sunday.

“Even one life is too many. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families. Europe stands united with Denmark in upholding freedom of speech and freedom of expression,” the statement continued.

“We stand against anti-Semitism and all forms of discrimination. Europe will not be intimidated.”

But while Europe issues statements about not being intimidated by anti-Semitism, Jews are dying for the cause.

Dan Uzan, 37, donated his life to stop the terrorist’s bullets with his own body, thus preventing the attack from becoming a massacre. Uzan was guarding a Bat Mitzvah being held at a Copenhagen synagogue at the time of the attack.

Hours earlier, 55-year-old documentary film-maker Finn Noergaard died from wounds sustained after absorbing gunshots fired in the first attack; it appears, however, that the gunman’s target may have been Lars Vilk, the Danish cartoonist known for his satiric caricatures of the founder of Islam, the prophet Muhammad, which Muslims have found offensive.

  1. Europe is currently incapable of doing what it would take to end the problem. This cannot be solved by police action. The inclination of a very large number of Muslims in Europe, is to make Europe Islamic. Their numbers are growing and will continue to grow. At some point in the future, we are going to see civil wars all over the continent. Islam and Western democracy are incompatible.

  2. The EU can say whatever they want. But what are they going to do about all this terrorism? Anything is more than they have done so far. Jews of the world we better learn how to fight for ourselves. We cannot depend on others. NEVER EVER AGAIN.
