A Jewish man has said that a passerby “deliberately tripped” him, called him a “Jew” and a “four by two” (Cockney rhyming slang for a Jew) and told him that he knew where he lived. The incident took place yesterday afternoon at around 15:00 in Stanmore in London. The victim said he was walking down the road when another man tripped him up. He then challenged him and began filming with his smartphone. The man can be heard on video being calmly abusive and threatening before telling the victim to “go f*** yourself”. The victim told the JC: “I was stunned and saddened that there is still this undercurrent of antisemitism in existence today.”
Campaign Against Antisemitism is trying to contact the victim through the JC but would appreciate it if any of our supporters could get in contact if they know either the victim or the man shown in this video. We will also be discussing the case with the Metropolitan Police Service.
