A day of Antisemitic incidents in London

London was at the centre of two Antisemitic incidents today:

In the first, a man walking around London yelling Antisemitic slurs was just arrested, thanks to volunteers of Shomrim North London.

In the early afternoon on Sunday afternoon, Shomrim North London received a call reporting a man walking around the Hendon area making a Nazi salute, as well as yelling anti-semitic slurs directed at Jews – including calling on passersby to “kill all the (expletive removed) Jews”.

Shomrim responded and located the suspect in front of the Hendon Central Tube (train station). Police were contacted and dispatched officers to the scene. Additionally, police began tracking the suspect via Hendon CCTV.

Police arrived and the man was taken into custody without further incident.

In the second, a group of West Ham fans were caught on video chanting Antisemitic slurs on the Tube near Stamford Hill, a Jewish area of London, whilst en route to their derby match against Tottenham.
