In the latest violent attack on a Jewish minor, a 13-year-old boy was punched in the stomach as the male assailant shouted “you stupid Jews think you own the world” and “you f***ing Jews”.
The attack took place on a bus heading towards Stamford Hill at 11:46am on 5th January and was reported by Stamford Hill Shomrim, the Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol.
Police are said to be investigating.
If you have any more information, please contact the police on 101 or Stamford Hill Shomrim on 0300 999 0123, quoting reference number: CAD4968 05/01/2020.
Stephen Silverman, Director of Investigations and Enforcement at Campaign Against Antisemitism, said: “We are seeing more and more violent attacks against Jewish minors on public transport. Perpetrators must be caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
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 crime than any other faith group.
