A Jewish man who was simply walking on the streets of London was confronted by a van driver who was captured on video repeating, loud enough for all to hear,” that “Hitler was a great man.”
Talk about an anti-Semitic rant.
Anti-Semitism has been on the rise in Britain for some time — coincidentally, with the open border situation that has let in scores of migrants and refugees from mostly Muslim nations.
This most recent confrontation actually occurred in the Jewish neighborhood of Stamford Hill.
The video was shot by another Jewish man who happened to be driving by the scene and heard the argument.
The Algemeiner has the story:
A Jewish pedestrian who became embroiled in a row with a van driver in one of London’s Jewish neighborhoods found himself on the receiving end of a vicious antisemitic rant on Friday.
A video of the incident shows the man, seated in the driver’s seat of a red van, repeating the phrase “Hitler was a great man” at the height of an argument between the two on a street in the north-east London area of Stamford Hill – home to a large Haredi population.
When the Jewish motorist filming the footage asked him to “say it again”, the man repeated: “I said Hitler was a great man. He knew what he was doing, okay?”
He continues: “You think you own the world? You don’t own the world.”
He then added, “This ain’t Israel.”
Stamford Hill Shomrim, a community defense organization, reported the incident, which took place hours before Shabbat, to the police. No arrests have yet been made.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman told the Jewish Chronicle: “Police in Hackney have received an allegation of anti-Semitic abuse against an individual in Lynmouth Road, N16 at 1830hrs on Friday, 23 December.
“An appointment has been made to speak with the complainant. No arrests have been made. Enquiries continue.”
The incident in London was similar to another outrage in Berlin earlier this week, when video of a man verbally abusing a Jewish restaurant owner went viral.
Israeli restaurateur Yorai Feinberg and his wife Kamila were standing outside their establishment when a 60 year-old white man approached them, telling them “This is my country” and “You all go back to your gas chamber – nobody wants you here. ”
Germany’s Justice Minister Heiko Maas condemned the incident as “completely outrageous” and “inexcusable.”
“We must all oppose anti-Semitic rabble-rousing in a dedicated and courageous manner,” Maas said.
