An Amazon spokeswoman said that the platform “worked with urgency to remove this content and will permanently suspend any accounts found to be posting or reposting content of this abhorrent act.”In the aftermath of the attack, German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited a Berlin synagogue where a vigil was being held outside. Merkel’s spokesman tweeted: “We must oppose any form of anti-Semitism.”Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted condolences to families of the victims  and called on Germany to fight anti-Semitism.“The terrorist attack against the community in Halle in Germany on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of our nation, is yet another expression that anti-Semitism is growing in Europe,” he said.
