After tote bag with ‘f*** the police’ is confiscated by law enforcement officials, eatery staff replace it with one bearing similar phrase, but in Yiddish

The Jewish owners of a cafe in Scotland decided to use their shop display to advertise their views on law enforcement.
For months, a bag emblazoned with the words “f— the police” decorated the façade of The Pink Peacock in Glasgow, a hub for Jewish activists with an affinity for Yiddish and far-left causes, including anarchism.
It also features a Palestinian flag and the slogan “Jews and Queers for a Free Palestine” and a poster promoting a Yom Kippur Ball, a party that the owners threw in 2019 on the Jewish Day of Atonement because it’s “feasting and rejoicing in the Jewish anarchist tradition,” as the poster states.
