The calm of the Jewish Sabbath was shattered this past weekend in London, as a brick covered in swastikas was hurled through the window of a Jewish family's home, Jewish pedestrians were pelted with eggs, and a swastika was drawn on another home, the Jewish Press website reports today (January 23, 2017).
Shomrim North West London -- a volunteer neighborhood watch patrol run by the Jewish community -- reported that in three seemingly separate incidents, Jews were sought out for racist attacks.
The first incident came as Jewish families walked home from attending traditional Friday night dinner at friends' and families' homes. A car was seen from which occupants hurled eggs at recognizably-Jewish pedestrians at about 10:30 p.m.
As day broke on Saturday, a brick on which swastikas and anti-Semitic slurs were drawn was thrown through the window of a Jewish family's home. Then, later in the day, police discovered a swastika on a residential building.
