Jewish man is abused TWICE in the space of an hour on public transport in London

A Jewish man was abused twice in the space of an hour on London‘s public transport last night. 

A man who wished to remain anonymous took to social media to say that his brother who he said is ‘visibly’ Jewish, was first ‘attacked’ while on the number 113 bus – which was headed to Oxford Circus – at around 11.30pm. 

In an audio recording made by the man’s brother, the thug was heard threatening to ‘shank’ him and ‘slit his throat for Palestine‘. 

He also called the Jewish man a ‘f***ing scumbag’ and warned that he would ‘f***ing beat the s*** out of you’.   

Footage also showed the abuser angrily telling the bus driver that the man’s brother was ‘f***ing Jewish’.

He then stepped off the bus and banged his hands on the doors whilst shouting ‘suck your mum’ and ‘free Palestine’.

An hour later, the man’s brother was travelling down an escalator at Oxford Circus when he filmed a man shouting anti-Semitic abuse.

The thug, who appeared to be part of a group of England fans, was heard shouting ‘f***ing hate the Jews’ while he made a banging sound with his hand.

When a member of the group told him to ‘shut the f*** up’, he added that ‘we’ve got a Jew behind us’, before another retorted, ‘we’ve got about nine Jews behind us’.

The abused man’s brother had said in his tweet: ‘My brother [who is visibly Jewish] was attacked on the 113 bus, heading in direction of Oxford Circus, London at 11:33PM and threatened to “slit his throat for Palestine”. Will anything be done about this rampant #Antisemitism.

In a thread beneath the second video, he posted evidence of the earlier incident and said: 'An hour prior, he had another antisemitic encounter on the @TfL tube.' The man told MailOnline that the incident on the bus in fact happened first, at 11.30pm, with the abuse on the tube occurring at 12.30am

‘License plate: LK18 AFZ, Edgware Garage. All information is there for @metpoliceuk address fact that identifiably jewish people face extreme racism on a daily occurrence.’

In a thread beneath the second video, he posted evidence of the earlier incident and said: ‘An hour prior, he had another antisemitic encounter on the @TfL tube.’

He said it was ‘depressing’ that a ‘visibly’ Jewish person cannot use public transport without hearing ‘I f***ing hate the Jews’.    

The Metropolitan Police’s Chief Superintendent Rory Smith said in response to the man’s Twitter thread: ‘This is awful and I’m sorry he had to experience this. I’ve tagged @MetCC and if you could DM them so that this can be fully investigated please?’  

‘This sort of behaviour absolutely will not be tolerated.’

Transport for London also responded on Twitter. 

They said: ‘Good morning. I am really sorry to hear that this has happened on a London Bus. 

‘So that this can be looked into, please ask your brother to contact the Metropolitan police service as soon as possible.’

Both services have also been approached for comment by MailOnline. The British Transport Police have also been contacted.
