Police have released images of two men to whom they want to speak after a Jewish man was subjected to antisemitic abuse in a kebab shop in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
The men asked the victim, “Are you a f****** Jew?” and the ensuing exchange included a torrent of antisemitic abuse from the men, who said that the Jews should be “wiped out”, denied that the Holocaust took place, and made a Nazi salute.
The incident took place around 22:30 on 16th November and is being investigated by Greater Manchester Police who, after analysing CCTV footage, have released the two images.
Anyone with information should call the police on 0161 856 3129 quoting incident number 2498 of 17/11/2019.
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.
