British Police Arrest Jew for Fighting PA Flag Wavers at Kosher Deli

A protester who shouted “Jews aren’t safe – we’re coming to get you“ got a big surprise. Aliyah? Perish the thought.
British police arrested a Jewish customer of the deli after he confronted PA flag wavers, one of whom shouted, "Jews aren’t safe – we’re coming to get you."

British police arrested a Jewish customer of the deli after he confronted PA flag wavers, one of whom shouted, "Jews aren’t safe – we’re coming to get you."

Police in Greater London arrested a Jew last week for scuffling with more than dozen demonstrators waving a Palestinian Authority flag and chanting anti-Semitic remarks outside a Jewish deli.

No one was injured in the incident at Flax’s Kosher Deli in the Borough of Bushey Heath, on the outskirts of London.

The only one who was arrested was the 47-year-old Jew, who along with other deli customers barged out of the store to confront the protesters.

Jewish man has been arrested in Bushey Heath after a fight involving socialists who produced Palestinian flags as they marched past a kosher deli.

Police investigators asserted that “no evidence was found that any race or religious hate crimes had occurred,” according to Britain’s JewishNews online website, but witnesses’ remarks indicate that the police investigation was not very thorough.

Among the “non-hate” remarks were, “Jews aren’t safe – we’re coming to get you.”

The demonstration was ostensibly a “March for Jobs” protest, with Palestinian Authority flags. The connection between unemployment and waving the PA flag outside a Jewish deli is not clear, unless the anti-Zionists were demanding that they work in the Kosher deli, assuming they understand Jewish dietary laws.

“That flag, in this area, with all that’s going on in the world in Gaza, it was bound to cause trouble.” said deli manager Mitchell Swillman. “ It escalated as they made their way down to Bushey village. From what I understand these guys were being quite anti-Semitic.”

 

The conclusion by police that there was not hate speech may explain why out of 240 anti-Semitic incidents registered last month, only 20 of them were followed up by an investigation or arrests.

London’s Community Security Trust (CST) blog stated, “The actual data is bad enough, but cannot convey the mood of the Jewish community, with many people telling us that they have never felt so bad, have been under such pressure, nor worried so much about what the future may hold.”

The Jews are worried. They sit and worry and come up with reasons why not to move to Israel.

Donna Rachel Edmunds, a councillor for Lewes District Council and founder and editor of UKIPDaily.com, wrote on her Breitbart.com, “I’ve lived my life entirely in the south east of England… As a libertarian, I’m proud to call thinkers such as Smith and Hume my fellow countrymen….

“I’ve never really thought of myself as being is an immigrant although technically I am – albeit second generation….Another label I’ve never meaningfully attached to myself is ‘Jewish’, although, again technically, I am.

“Yet I’ve never stepped foot inside a synagogue. I think I once took part in a Passover meal when I was very young, but other than that my mother made no real effort to educate my sister or myself on our Jewish roots. Our only tangible link to our maternal heritage is through soup: chicken noodle when we’re feeling ill; borscht when we want something filling….

“So I was as surprised as anyone when I found myself uttering six loaded words recently. And by ‘recently’ I don’t mean once, dropped into a passing conversation. I mean at least a dozen times, in a dozen such conversations over the past few weeks. Those words were “Maybe we should move to Israel….

“Not, primarily, because I worry about the rise in anti-Semitic attacks affecting me personally. As a church-going Christian I wear a cross on a necklace, and am more often assumed to be Spanish, if anything, so I doubt I would be targeted on the street….

“The reason that I’m seriously considering a move to Israel in the next few years is because I’m developing a strong suspicion that Israel is going to be one of the safest countries on the planet to live in over the next few decades….

    British justice protect the the people that want to destroy you.Churchill warned the country and the world about the threat posed by Muslims and their religion of “peace”

  2. What’s new! British police?

  3. Lisa Kamins says:

    figures. it is time for the Jews of England and all the British Isles to move to Israel. England has become a bastion of the muslim brotherhood.

  4. Once – long ago – the British fuzz was said to be incorruptible…. :(

  5. Why are these people allowed to parade their flag in our Country. Send them back to the country they support. If they’ve taken up British citizenship they should be supporting Britain or else get out.

  6. Issy Rondel says:

    If the police will not act to protect these attacks on Jewish bossiness, and Jewish areas , then we will have to protect ourselves.

  7. Dave Bergen says:

    Britain’s getting to weak and scared to stand against Muslim radicals

  8. David Brooks says:

    When the law protects the perpetrators, it’s a good time to leave…

  9. the police need to be fired

  10. the police need to be fired

  11. Joyce Myers says:

    Do not give in to the PA haters…Britain must put a stop to this…NOW

  12. Typical British attitude that they need to take stock of before they will realize the reality!!

  13. The British police need to be sent to Gaza!!!

  14. Ita Benjamin says:

    Is it too much to ask, as Jews around the world Stand with Israel, that Israel return the favor and stand with the Jews of France, England, Canada, etc.? Guess so. Israel should clean it’s own house, before declaring that Jews elsewhere must assist the anti-Semites in making their countries free of Jews. Jews on the Temple Mount get arrested while Muslims are free to wave the flags of Hamas and ISIS.

  15. PH Yogev says:

    Ita, GREAT point!

  16. Herbert Peck says:

    About time they grew some balls

  17. When the police cannot, or is unwilling to protect the citizens, one should consider the country in which they live.

  18. Barney Evans says:

    Oh Britain they keep siding with the Muslims then they are on the losing side

  19. Must have been an Arab British police

  20. Mark Rader says:

    That’s why they will be taken over by the Muslim pigs

  21. The UK has no right to exist!

  22. Colette Gurt says:

    Getting better and better by the minute, let them burn in hell these Brits!

  23. Joe Barnett says:

    Interesting report but badly written with lots of typos.

  24. The police, as well as all others who support Hamas and Palestinians, fail to hear their names substituted for the word “Jew.”
