London – Two men filmed themselves harassing a group of Jewish children near a day school in north London, according to footage shared on Wednesday by StandWithUs UK, an educational nonprofit.
“Drove past the Zionist school on full blast,” a caption to the video reads, as they loudly play an Arabic song with lyrics extolling Hezbollah: “We’re Hizbullahi [members of Hezbollah] and I bear witness.”
The men, whose identities remain unknown, laughed at the children, many of whom were wearing a kippah and preparing the cross the intersection they were passing through.
“It is not normal for Jewish schoolchildren to be targeted and bullied because of their identity. However, it is a sad reality that many Jewish individuals and communities in the UK and around the world face,” StandWithUs UK said on Wednesday. “Antisemitism individuals are no longer hesitant to display their hate out in the open. It is unacceptable for any group of people to fear being targeted physically, emotionally, or mentally because of their identity, whether in public or online.”
