A Jewish man walking down Ferndale Road in Tottenham in the afternoon of July 28th was subjected to a tirade of antisemitic abuse by a man and woman.
According to the International Business Times, the couple shouted “no one likes your people”, “you c**t, you Jewish pr**k” before threatening that he would be “turned into ashes”.
Following the attack, the victim was apparently too scared to contact the police. The police were alerted to the incident by Shomrim, and have since begun an investigation, highlighting the vital role played by Shomrim within the Jewish community.
The local Labour MP David Lammy described the verbal attack as “abhorrent, disgusting and vile” and the leader of the local council expressed how she was “deeply concerned” about rising antisemitism and urged other local residents to “stand side-by-side with our Jewish community”.
