Board of Deputies of British Jews President Marie van der Zyl has condemned an incident during which Jewish teenagers on a bus were targeted by antisemites.
Marie said: “We are appalled by the horrifying footage of Jewish people targeted on Oxford Street. We note that besides attempts to spit at them, at least one of the perpetrators appears to be performing a Nazi salute. We hope the police will swiftly identify and arrest those involved in this disgusting incident.”
