Family suffers anti-Semitic abuse in London
As a Jewish father and his six children were touring the British capital, a man began hurling anti-Semitic abuse at the family, telling him to go back to 'Israhell. You're not welcome;' father describes the terror that gripped his children; 'they couldn't sleep all night.'
A man touring London with his two children in east London has been recorded on video screaming anti-Semitic slurs at a Jewish family also touring the British capital.
The man, who has been described as a black man with dreadlocks, can be heard shouting at the Jewish family: “F****** Jews! Go back to Israhell. Don’t come here! Go back to Stamford hill (heavily populated by Jews). You’re not welcome!”
Video of anti-Semitic abuse in London
The video capturing the incident was published on the Twitter account of an organization called “Shomrim” (Guards) which recruits volunteers to protect Jewish buildings and institutions in London.
The family said that the man spoke in a threatening and aggressive manner. According to the father, a religious 31 year old, a group of men sitting on a nearby bench, joined in with the abusive harangue which took place on Wednesday afternoon in front of his six children.
“I heard shouting in my direction and at my family. He didn’t stop shouting and sounded extremely aggressive,” the father recalled. “All my children started to cry and were terrified. They were so scared and they couldn’t sleep all night. I don’t think that they will forget the incident any time soon. It was simply disgusting.”
The father filed a complain to the British police and even sent the clip he recorded on his phone of the abuse. The case has been transferred to Scotland Yard for further investigation and the police have appealed to the public to provide any information relating to the case.
