Six people arrested after attack on London synagogue, video goes viral

Rebel Staff

On Saturday, a group of 20 men and women stormed the Ahavas Torah synagogue in London.

They threw objects towards doors, smashed windows and made anti-Semitic comments. And while police were originally treating the attack as a racial incident, according to Times of Israel, Rabbi Maurice David says the attack was probably not religiously motivated and was an example of 'anti-social behaviour.'

“The incident is being treated as an anti-Semitic incident, due to remarks made by one of the group. At this early stage, there is no suggestion that this was a far-right or extremist attack but rather the completely unacceptable actions of a drunken group,” London’s Metropolitan police said in a statement.

A video of the incident has gone viral. In it, young Jews can be seen holding broken chairs for protection as the angry mob tries to enter.

Times of Israel reports that the incident could have begun after an exchange of words between party-goers and Jewish men outside the synagogue.

In total, four men and two women were arrested, according to Reuters.

The names of those arrested have not been released.

Are police in London being “politically correct” about this incident?

You can certainly tell this is London. Awful. So much anger and hatred floating around.

More than simply alcohol driven. Definitely heard is “Go back to Africa!”

There’s no shortage of stupid people on this planet. Sectarian hatred and violence is certainly not in short supply! I don’t know what to say after something like this. Adding my comments would just be redundant and solve nothing. The video speaks for itself.

This was obviously a Jew hatred group. No doubt in my mind who these violent aggressive brain dead idiots are. Muslim extremist jihadists.

“There is no suggestion that this was a far-right or extremist attack.” Definitely not. It looks like those special types of left-wing Palestinian supporting university students. They are generally the most illiterate on the matter and the easiest to corrupt because they lack the ability to think critically.

there seemed to be individuals looking for protection and than others who were the aggressors. both groups had individuals not helping. Interesting know what had taken place outside.

At first blush it does seem to be more Al-Cohol than Al-Queda related……..:-)
