London - The Jewish community in Golders Green has been the target of further anti-Semitic attacks, in the form of more offensive graffiti.

Graffiti reading “Kill the filthy Jews” was daubed on walls and pavements near Golders Green tube station and vandals wrote “Jihad 4 Israel” on top of Holocaust Memorial Day adverts.

Golders Green residents have unanimously condemned the ongoing hate crimes, which have risen up in the wake of the Gaza conflict.
“The graffiti is revolting,” said one woman from Hampstead Way. “The conflict in Gaza is awful but people here have nothing to do with it. I want to call the police - this has to be reported. But what can you do when you are dealing with fanatics?”

Gabriella Lauffer, 22, from Golders Green, said: “The graffiti just comes down to anti-Semitism. Gaza is an excuse for anti-Semites to attack Jews.”

Joseph Haziza, 27, manager of Menachem Kosher butchers which is next to Sinclair Grove on Golders Green road, said: “In this area of Golders Green the graffiti hasn’t been as bad. Further up the Golders Green Road they have been affected, with Muslims coming into Jewish shops and saying: ‘I’m going to kill you’.

“I don’t wear my cuple [skull cap] when I’m out and about. I don’t want to be started on.”

Barnet police tried to reassure the community. A spokesman said: “We have a policy that once incidents such as these are reported we clean it up within 24 hours. There are an increased number of graffiti incidents and we have a team in place to respond as quickly as possible.”

And a spokesman for the Community Security Trust, which works to safeguard Jewish communities in the UK, said: “CST has been notified of well over 150 anti-Semitic incidents throughout Britain, by far the worst wave of anti-Semitism in recent decades.

“Barnet is of course home to one of Britain’s largest, most visible and most vibrant Jewish communities and therefore many of the anti-Semitic attacks reported to CST have occurred in the neighbourhood.
“The reaction from council and police has been largely excellent, and together we are all determined to ensure that the Jewish community in Barnet is able to conduct its lawful way of life.”

Anyone with information should call Barnet Police on 0300 123 1212 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. London - More Anti-Semitic Attacks in Golders Green

"The graffiti just comes down to anti-Semitism. Gaza is an excuse for anti-Semites to attack Jews."

This sums up ALL recent anti Israel protests & rallies all over the world in the past few weeks. Suddenly its not racist to be anti-Jewish anymore since everyone is saying it all over the media, all over the world.

What ever happened to "Never Again" - how are we as individual and as a nation going to stop this progressing into another pogrom C"V in a shtetel somewhere???

I use the GG station daily. It sickened me to see this, but unfortunately it's something we've seen over and over. To #4 - why should we move? We let cowards dictate where we live and anti-Semitism fester for those who can't move? No. It's cleaned up, and it'll be cleaned up again. Let's stand strong as a community and be vocal about not tolerating this - that's how we stop this descending into another pogrom c"v, #3.

right about leaving ASAP- but destination should be Hawaii- I don't like the Madman of Libya, but his offer is decent, assuming he is willing to fully fund it.

easier said than done. people have older children and it's difficult for them to adjust to new schools, languages and culture.

As an American Soldier in Iraq (Catholic), I've seen this anti-semitism in all of its ignorance and evil. Everything is the fault of the, "Juices"- who apparently are not only behind 9/11, but somehow exert mind-control over my own actions. When I see or hear about this crap being exported overseas, it boils my blood. My Grandfather saw the aftermath at Dachau- he told us what us saw. I don't know how we eliminate anti-semitism, but please know that there are many of us who are not swayed by the hateful blather and are prepared to defend human rights with our lives if necessary.

What a lovely post from Ecosium. I am British and am so ashamed of this - ashamed that it is happening, ashamed that nothing is being done and ashamed that it is not widely reported and condemned.
I tell everyone I can to spread the word that such evil exists among us right now and many people are shocked at the extent of it, they have no idea. Using Facebook has been brilliant for posting videos and articles and getting people to look at them.

I am a Gentile with no links to the Jewish community but I am moved by current events to let you know that I am fully supportive of Jews and their community in this country and everywhere else. Long may you continue here as you have always been a great asset to Britain. Unlike another faith community I could mention.
The noisy thugs of Hamas should be kicked out or locked up before they do any more damage. I know no-one who agrees with their murderous views.
As Dave Allen would say, 'may your God go with you', whether you decide to go or stay.
Shalom!

I live in Noth Wales and am shocked to hear how the Jewish people are maligned. It boils down to ignorance. A good book I can recommend about Jewish history and anti-semitism is: "OUR HANDS ARE STAINED WITH BLOOD" by Michael L. Brown. also "BECAUSE THEY HATE" by Brigitte Gabriel. The Jews aren`t perfect but neither are the rest of us. They don`t deserve this treatment. I`ve always found them to be peace-loving people and I wish to stand with them against this hatred which is so irrational.

Visible? The London Jewish community is comparitively invisible to...well, everything. We've done nothing to warrant these attacks, and it's horrible that anti-semitism has become popular again.
