An affair that made a great noise in Amsterdam

This is 1762, and what happened was, a bunch of Jews beat up a Calvinist apostate Jew in Amsterdam. As it happens, he was a sailor, and his fellow sailors went ashore to beat up the Jews who beat up the sailor. However, they were outnumbered, and were beaten up by even more Jews.  

From The London Chronicle, Or, Universal Evening Post.

  1. This is why azulai feared the great amount of freedom enjoyed by dutch jews. He saw it as something ominous. There is a great misconception about the lack of anti semitism among the dutch. Their behavior during the holocaust puts the lie to that._
