Anti-Semitic violence has been erupting all across Europe in recent months – in France, in Belgium, and in the United Kingdom, where violence at Jews is at all-time highs. The Jewish Press reports on the latest incidents – this weekend, anti-Semitic thugs attacked a London synagogue and its worshipers:
A gang of around 20 young men in the Stamford Hill section of London stormed a synagogue in the neighborhood late Saturday night. The gang yelled obscenities and threats, beat worshipers and vandalized property according to IsraelHatzolah’s official Twitter account …
One member of the Ahavat Torah congregation who witnessed the attack said the mob shouted “We will kill you!” He also said they physically assaulted the worshipers inside the synagogue and tore apart prayer books.
One Jewish man was beaten about the face and had a tooth knocked out after he tried to apprehend one of the attackers on his own and haul him off to police, having spotted the scene while passing by.
