A Jewish schoolgirl in London was told by a shopkeeper to “be patient, Jews come last.”
The incident last week in Stamford Hill was reported by Shomrim, , a volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol, to the Campaign Against Antisemitism. The incident has also been reported to police.
The girl was dropping off items for a parcel service when the shopkeeper, in the middle of serving her, stopped to help another customer.
When the girl politely asked for her receipt, so she could leave, the shopkeeper allegedly replied, “Be patient, Jews come last,” the Campaign Against Antisemitism said in a statement on its website.
