Orthodox Jewish father has his car window smashed as he left a synagogue by a racist thug who told him: ‘We need to kill all Jews’
A man smashed the window of an Orthodox Jewish father's car before saying 'we need to kill all the Jews'.
The 28-year-old was sitting in his vehicle, after leaving a synagogue, when the unprovoked incident happened near Clapton Common in Hackney, East London.
The attacker approached the car, before smashing the front passenger window and hurling the anti-Semitic abuse.
Avram Pinter, principle of Orthodox Jewish school, Yesodey Hatorah School, said that the victim was a parent there and knew him well.
He said: 'This is a natural outcome of prejudice.
'It's not good, but these things have happen, they have happened and they will keep happening.
'It is very troubling.'
A spokesman from the Stamford Hill Shomrim, a neighbourhood watch group, said: 'A suspect approached an Orthodox Jewish male as the victim exited a synagogue on Clapton Common, the suspect shouted "we need to kill all the Jews" amongst other abusive comments.'
Michael Scher from the Shomrim added: 'This behaviour is totally unacceptable, I urge anyone who witnessed the incident to call police.'
A spokesman from the Metropolitan Police said no arrests have been made and the force are appealing for information about the incident.
He said: 'The suspect is described as a black man, aged around 24-25 years old, around 5ft 8ins tall with a medium build and short black hair.
'He was wearing a grey shirt, black trousers and carrying a black bag.
'Officers from Hackney Borough's Community Safety Unit are investigating.'
