Boris Johnson today condemned footage of a gang of yobs said to be screaming ‘Free Palestine’ before spitting at a bus of Jewish teenagers celebrating Hanukkah. 

Police are currently investigating the incident, which occurred Monday night on London’s iconic shopping area Oxford Street.

You can’t hear any of the insults made by the yobs in the Facebook video because they were outside the bus.

The terrified occupants of the car can still be seen saying “We are all Jewish” while aboard.

The Prime Minister addressed the matter today, calling the footage ‘disturbing.

He said, “Racism of all kinds will not be tolerated by our society. We will continue to make every effort to eradicate it.”

Community Security Trust (CST), which provides security support for British Jews and monitors antisemitic incidents, stated that the bus passengers were giving out food at Oxford Street, the famous shopping district of the capital, before being stopped by the group.

Dave Rich is the director of policy at CST. He said, “They were very scared that the group who were intimidating them were going to physical assault them.

“They felt very afraid and that it was because they were Jewish they were targeted. It was clear to them that this was the case.

Leader of Westminster City Council Cllr RachaelRobathan and Mayor of London Sadiq Kan also condemned social media scenes.

Cllr Robathan said that he saw disturbing scenes from what appeared to be an antisemitic attack on Jewish teenaged in Oxford Street.

The Met Police will also be aware of the scene and we condemn it. Our Jewish community is our partner.

Khan stated that the actions of the yobs are completely unacceptable.

Twitter: “Antisemitism does not belong in any society. I strongly condemn such disgusting acts.

“No one should experience this.

According to the Jewish Chronicle, Rabbi Shneor Golders Green of Chabad Israeli Centre Golders Green was with his group on the bus.

He stated that the men started shouting “Free Palestine” at him.

Rabbi Shneor said: It isn’t something that you would expect to find in central London. London should be a place where you feel safe and free.

The mission of Israel’s is to promote light and goodness. We do not want them to be intimidated.

It was likened to the “hate convoy” demonstrations in London that occurred in May.

According to the Metropolitan Police, officers were summoned to Oxford Street around 8pm Monday. However, they met the bus at another location, after which it continued to avoid any confrontations, police stated.

Met stated that the group seen in video couldn’t be found at the time of incident, and there were no arrests.

‘The incident will be treated as a hate-crime and officers will assess the evidence available to determine any lines of investigation.

Chabad is a religious outreach group that organizes for the installation of eight candelabras around London as part of Hanukkah celebrations. Mr Rich stated that the people who were on board the bus included Chabad members.

He said that they had an open-top van and drove to Oxford Street from North London. However, after the incident, they returned home. CST has been working with the police in support of the victims.

Rich stated that there have been more hate crimes against Jews in Britain.

He said that in six months, there were the most antisemitic incidents ever recorded to CST.

CST stated in a statement that London is the place where Jews should be able celebrate Jewish festivals and live a confident, open-minded Jewish life.

“This disgusting act goes against all the city stands up for and should be condemned.

One viewer said that the video was disgusting and intolerant.

“I wish they were arrested, found and made an example.” Peace.’

An additional comment added: “Absolutely disgusting behavior.”

Hanukkah, also known as “the festival of light”, is an eight-day celebration that includes food and prayer.

It is dedicated to the Jewish rebellion of the 2nd century B.C. It was established to protest the Greek-Syrian Kingdom, which tried to imitate its culture and decorated the Jewish Temple of Jerusalem with statues representing Greek gods.

Because a single vial oil that was enough for one day burned miraculously for eight, the holiday is eight-days long. It runs this year from November 28 to December 6.

Many Jews see the holiday as a symbol of victory over evil.
