London - A 31-year-old trucker who became a special constable after being victimized by anti-Semitism has won the national award for his community-related police tweets.

MANCHESTEREVENINGNEWS.co.uk (http://bit.ly/1YRoWuy) reports that Moshe Rothstein, a Salford trucker who logs over 100K miles annually, volunteers in his off-time as a special constable for Greater Manchester Police.

Rothstein’s duties include tweeting help and advice to residents in need in Bury.

Rothstein’s Twitter account, @TruckerMozzi, has 1,374 followers.

Upon receiving the award in an online ceremony, a humbled Rothstein explained what led him to becoming a special constable.

“I never ever believed I was going to be a police officer,” Rothstein said. “It all started off when I was a victim of anti-Semitism and got to know the local police officers. There were times I phoned the police and no-one came because they didn’t have any available. They said ‘why don’t you become a special constable?’ I said ‘are you having a laugh?’ but it all went from there. I did my training and they were all so welcoming.”

Although we all admire all who volunteer for the community everywhere, a jew belongs in Israel, in the Israeli police force, in the IDF, in the MADA... because we have our own land and we need our support.
Let the Americans, British and whatnot"s deal with their own people....

I'm Trying to understand your comment here.
I agree with you that our brothers in Israel can use our help, but a jew that lives abroad as in the UK should't volunteer????!!!

#2, all I want is add a perspective to this story, yiden tend to get excited when they are shown acceptance and integration from the host nations they are in, but the truth is that it is equivalent of celebrating getting a good position in the prison barracks we are the Jewish nation and there in Israel is our future, so let's use all our goodwill and contributions to their institutions and there only!
I hope I'm coming across positive and clear. Shabat shalom

Yoyo, since when do yiden belong in Israel, I've got news for you, here in the UK we YIDDEN feel free to practice our religion as and how, where we want, the government here is the real worldwide flag carrier of being a truly MALCHUS SHEL CHESSED, for (instan) a food stamp or the like kind of fraud which will end you 10 years in prison the least in the USA, you'll get a fine plus payback at the most, same as the USA, more or less goes to Israel, plus no where near can you practice Judaism the way you want, in Israel, let alone army etc, don't you tell me that this is a true democracy because you can't mix democracy with yiddishkeit, how come that they tolerate and encourage gay parade? How come that one can freely buy pigs meat? How come they encourage non tzenius women to walk about inmea shearim? If they don't want us frum ehrliche yidden to tell anyone in tel aviv how and what to, then let us live the way we like in mea shearim, and Don't encourage chilul shabbos, especially not in Jerusalem,

We have jewish communities around the whole world. They need protection just as much as the yidden in Israel. They are also hugely welcomed in any official position as they become spokesmen for our community explaining our way of life so that we get the help we need. #1 go bury your head in Israel.

We are not getting excited at integration, believe me it is hard work. We are excited about the fact that we have a spokesperson in the police force. By the way, for all you know he may have done his stint in the Israeli army as well!

Is your entire post a joke? It's hard to imagine that anyone's fist proof of a country being a Malchus Shel Chesed would be only being fined for food stamp fraud. If you're sincere,uch un vey on the chasidishe community where you live and uch un vey on England.
