Message calling for an ‘attack’ on ‘Zionists’ found in Jewish area of London

CST described the language as ‘incitement’ against community and urged a police investigation


The sticker

A terrifying message calling for an “attack” on “Zionists” has been seen in a heavily Jewish part of north London.

The sticker – whose precise location is being withheld for security reasons – said “Zionists F*** Off” and featured a woman’s face masked by a keffiyeh along with the statements “solidarity means attack” and “Free Palestine”.

A reporter for the JC discovered the sticker on a traffic sign in the parliamentary constituency of Hackney North and Stoke Newington, where an estimated 12 per cent of voters are Jewish.

The seat contains parts of Stamford Hill, home to Europe’s largest Charedi community.

The sticker was removed by the JC’s reporter and the incident was reported to CST.

A spokesperson for CST told the JC: "This kind of extremist incitement intimidates and harasses communities and the implicit support for violence seems deliberately designed to frighten. It should be roundly condemned, and the police should investigate who is putting these stickers up."

Earlier this week, the JC reported that CST’s chief executive Mark Gardiner said that since the October 7 massacre committed by Hamas in Israel, antisemitic incidents in the UK had been “running at record levels”, and that CST had dealt with 4,500 complaints of antisemitism in the past nine months.
