As the nation is in partial lockdown in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, some anti-Jewish racists have taken the opportunity to paint antisemitic obscenities on a wall in Gateshead, in the north of England.
The phrase “F*** Jews” was found painted on the external wall of a property in a back lane off Whitehall Road this week.
The vandalism was reported to the police, and it is understood that the local council has now cleaned the wall.
If you have any more information, please contact the police on 101, quoting reference number: CAD248 31/03/20.
Campaign Against Antisemitism’s analysis of Home Office statistics shows that an average of over three hate crimes are directed at Jews every single day in England and Wales, with Jews almost four times more likely to be targets of hate crimes than any other faith group.
