Police and Stamford Hill Shomrim, a Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol, are seeking a man alleged to have entered a Jewish-owned clothing shop for ladies in Stamford Hill, north London, last Wednesday, shouting: “It’s a shame, Hitler should have killed all the Jews” and other antisemitic remarks.
The young man allegedly came to the shop and asked for money to clean the exterior of the shop’s windows. He then asked to clean the inside surface of the windows too, but was asked not to do so. He responded with a series of antisemitic comments, including “F*** Jews”, “It’s a shame, Hitler should have killed all the Jews”, “Why are you still here? You shouldn’t still be here”, and the “Palestinians need to bomb you all”.
Shoppers and staff witnessed the incident in shock. A Jewish customer who was in the changing rooms at the time and heard the antisemitic barrage was too afraid to come out.
If you have any more information, please contact the police on 101 or Stamford Hill Shomrim on 0300 999 0123, quoting reference number: CAD1594 07/02/19.
