Why are Jewish related places being targeted?

Places related to presumably non-Israeli, non-American Jews have been violently attacked subsequent to the Trump administration’s Jerusalem decision: in Europe a synagogue was firebombed and a kosher restaurant had a night of broken glass. Such stuff has happened before.

By contrast, I’m not aware of any Buddhist places of worship being attacked in retaliation for what’s being reported in Burma, Russian Orthodox churches or Russian restaurants being attacked for Russia attacking ... lots of countries or minority groups (the only case I can think of is publicity hounds FEMEN attacking or desecrating churches in response to jailing “Pussy Riot”), or any Christian churches (even evangelical ones) being targeted for the US Jerusalem decision or lots of other conflicts the US is involved in.

(I am aware of Muslim places of worship being attacked, but it tends to be either sectarian violence or in retaliation for actions by Muslim non-state actors)

Why the difference?
