Neo-Nazis plan to march through Golders Green, a Jewish neighborhood in London, burn the Talmud and shred Israeli flags.
Neo-Nazis in England have announced plans to burn the Talmud and shred Israeli flags at their upcoming march through London’s predominantly Jewish Golders Green neighborhood in July, The Jewish Chronicle reported Tuesday.
Joshua Bonehill-Paine, a white supremacist activist, urged followers to participate in a private ceremony at Golders Green that would burn the Talmud “in recognition of its racist anti-white teachings.”
He threatened that the planned demonstration for July 4th would be followed by events in other Jewish communities in the London neighborhoods of Finchley and Stamford Hill.
He said flags would be ripped, rather than burnt, at the protest, in order to avoid prosecution, and would mark solidarity “with those oppressed by the illegal state of Israel.”
“This will be a show of solidarity by English people who recognize that Israel is a corrupt state which is responsible for horrific war crimes,” he said
Representatives of the Jewish community have assured that they are not intimidated by the planned anti-Semitic demonstration.
British leaders have called to rally around the Jewish community and prevent the event from taking place.
