London Mayor Sadiq Khan warned the British capital will show zero tolerance towards hate crimes, in the wake of anti-Semitic hate crimes last weekend.

London will remain an inclusive and global city and hate crimes are not a “trivial matter,” he said at an event ahead of Holocaust Memorial Day.

A woman was pelted with eggs in the street in Mill Hill on Friday (January 20) and a brick covered in prejudicial language was thrown through the window of a home in Edgware on Saturday (January 21).

Though it is not yet known if the incidents are linked, police are investigating by examining CCTV footage and appealing to the public for information.

Other crimes across the weekend included the vandalism of bins outside a Jewish business and of a billboard for Denial, a film about the trial a Holocaust denier, with anti-Semitic language and symbols.

Additionally, Swastika-shaped graffiti was found on a train leaving Edgware underground station on the Northern line around 7.30pm on Saturday.

A mother from Edgware, who asked not to be named, said: “The streets suddenly feel a little bit less safe, especially when I take my children out – but we can’t let it stop our daily lives.

“I am definitely more alert now than I was last week and I really hope the police catch the person or people who did this as soon as possible.”

Shomrim, a Jewish community safety charity based in North West London, have condemned the incidents.

CEO Gary Ost said: “These cowardly anti-Semitic attacks targeted Jews when they were asleep in their homes or walking with their families after dinner.

“These attacks are intended to instil fear in London’s Jews – the best response to these disgusting acts is to ensure the perpetrators are caught.

“We are working closely with the Metropolitan police and appeal for any witnesses to contact Police or Shomrim.”

The Community Security Trust, another Jewish charity dedicated to protecting people from anti-Semitism and related threats, is assisting with response to the incidents from its Hendon office.

Deputy director Dave Rich said: “We received reports of these incidents from the victims and began speaking with police about how we could help with the response.

“We are providing support for the victims in the wake of this traumatic occurrence, which has obviously been very upsetting for the whole community.

“We would ask anyone who sees this kind of behaviour in the streets to report it to the police as soon as they can as it is not acceptable in any way.”

The crimes come with unfortunate timing as the UK looks to this Friday (January 27) as Holocaust memorial day, in dedication to those who suffered under Nazi persecution.

Barnet Council is set to host its memorial service at Middlesex University campus in the Burroughs, Hendon, while City Hall held its own service on Monday (January 23).

London assembly member for Barnet Andrew Dismore, who attended the Monday service, spoke about the need to “educate people about anti-Semitism” in response to the crimes.

He said: “It is shameful more of these incidents have happened here, given Barnet is home to the largest number of Jewish residents in the country.

“The need for community security organisations like Shomrim and the Community Safety Trust is sad but entirely necessary for occasions such as this – the community will want reassurance this is being taken seriously.”

In Barnet, the Metropolitan police have stepped up reassurance patrols in order to comfort residents worried about further incidents.

Inspector Justin Zitver from Barnet police said: “It is of great concern members of our local community are being targeted in this way.

“The Met is committed to working with our partners to tackle all types of hate crime including the use of anti-Semitic language.

“I would encourage anyone who has been a victim of crime, or who has any information that will help our investigations to speak with officers.

“Together we can make every effort to hold the offenders to account.”
