Antisemitic graffiti has been found on Moseley Road in Birmingham, on the junction with Edward Road.

The graffiti reads “Jews r starving us with their food prices”.

Whilst instances of antisemitic graffiti are unfortunately very common, and often seem quite insignificant, this is a particularly nasty antisemitic sentiment. Not only is it is a clear expression of long-standing antisemitic canards which accuse Jews of controlling international business, it is also vaguely reminiscent of blood libel in portraying such a conspiracy as being directed towards “starving” non-Jews.
