passenger, filmmaker Chris Atkins, who filmed the man, holding a Bible in his hands, shower the family with anti-Semitic abuse, telling them that the Jews killed Jesus and were slavers.
According to witness accounts, the Jewish man was not too perturbed by this display, but the child got very scared.
The abuser eventually left the train, reportedly shouting that King James, Scottish-English monarch who sponsored the Bible's translation to English, was in fact black.
But before that, he was confronted by a Muslim woman, named Asma Shuweikh, who called him out on his abuse despite his threats to physically assault other passengers.

Winning praise on social media on standing up for the Jewish family, she is cited as saying that as a mother of two, she found the incident relatable and that she would stand up for a fellow passenger again if she had to.
