Thames Valley Police are reportedly investigating an antisemitic e-mail sent to a Jewish newspaper, the JC and numerous local councillors.
The e-mail, which was apparently also sent to several local authorities and other media organisations, including The Sunday Times and Dorset and Chester Councils, came from a group calling itself the Keep Britain Pure League.
The e-mail is understood to have claimed that Jews “are in charge of the money” and that “the only think [sic] Hitler did wrong, was not kill enough of them.” It was signed off “Heil Hitler”.
The two individuals named as the group’s leader and media co-ordinator insist that they have nothing to do with the organisation or the e-mail.
A spokesperson for Thames Valley Police reportedly told the JC: “We have received a report relating to this email and it is being investigated as malicious communications. We are working to establish the source of the correspondence. No arrests have been made.”
We are grateful to the local councillor who brought this matter to our attention.
