Graffiti reading “Zionist police state” has appeared in East London for the second time this week, this time in Tower Hamlets.
The vandalism on Chambord Street comes just after the police said that they were investigating graffiti with the same message in Hackney.
Police reported the graffiti to Tower Hamlets Council and it has since been removed. No arrests have yet been made, and it is unclear if the two incidents are related.
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.
