London Man Tells Jews Theyre Part of Synagogue of Satan, Muslim Woman Intervenes – Jewish Journal

Posted By on November 23, 2019

A Nov. 22 video circulating on social media shows a Muslim woman intervening after a London man tells a Jewish man and his son they are part of the Synagogue of Satan on the metro.

According to the UK Sun, the man was reading from a Bible, saying to the little boys face, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jewish, and are not, but do lie.

The father, who was wearing a yarmulke, told his son to ignore the man.

A male passenger who cant be seen on video says something inaudible, prompting the man to tell him to f off.

The Muslim woman wearing a hijab then told the man to calm down because there were children on board. The man replied, These people are impostors, they are trying to claim my heritage and then try and tell me that its cool and then they start the slave trade.

He went on to yell at the Muslim woman about how she shouldnt be wearing trousers as the Jewish father laughs.

Filmmaker Chris Atkins recorded the video and told Sky News about the incident.

The boy was terrified, Atkins said. I couldnt believe it. It was so odd to see someone be so horrible and brazen. The dad was cool and calm and shrugged it off. He behaved commendably. Im not sure I could have stayed so calm.

He also praised the Muslim woman for being incredibly brave.

Forward Opinion Editor Batya Ungar-Sargon tweeted, This Muslim woman in a hijab who intervened to protect an Orthodox Jewish family from anti-Semitic abuse, *after* the man hurling the abuse *at a child* threatened to punch someone for trying to stop it, is a hero. Im in awe of her courage and her valor.

Tablet Senior Writer Yair Rosenberg similarly tweeted, On the train in Britain, man begins harassing Jewish man and his small son with anti-Semitic invective. Muslim woman intervenes and stands up for them. We do this for each other because we know whats its like.

The British Transport Police said in a statement, We are aware of a video circulating on Twitter which shows passengers being harassed and being targeted with anti-Semitic abuse on a Northern Line train. Inquiries are being made in relation to this footage.
