The Jewish neighbourhood of Stamford Hill has been rocked by numerous antisemitic hate crimes over the past several days.
On Friday 7th May, a man dressed in camouflage issued Nazi salutes to Jewish passers-by at Manor House Station (CAD 7253 09/05/21).
On Saturday morning at 01:45, two Jewish men walking on Cazenove Road were approached by a man threatening them with a large knife.
Also over the weekend, Jewish residents of Clock House woke to find the word “Hitler” scribbled onto the ceiling of a communal area in their block (CAD 5431 09/05/21).
All three incidents were reported by Stamford Hill Shomrim, the Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol.
If you have any more information, please contact the police on 101 or Stamford Hill Shomrim on 0300 999 0123, quoting the relevant reference numbers above.
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.
