London Shop Tells 16-Year-Old Girl ‘Jews Come Last’

A 16-year-old Jewish girl has allegedly been told by a shopkeeper in Stamford Hill in North East London to “be patient, Jews come last.”

The alleged incident took place on Wednesday between 17:30 and 18:00 at a shop which has a drop-off service for parcels, acting as an agent for online shops. The Jewish schoolgirl was dropping off items with the female shopkeeper, but in the middle of serving her the shopkeeper allegedly stopped and started serving another customer. The Jewish schoolgirl asked politely if she could just have her receipt so that she could leave, to which the shopkeeper allegedly replied: “be patient, Jews come last.”

Stamford Hill Shomrim, the volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol, is assisting the young girl who was shocked and felt very hurt by the alleged antisemitic comment. Stamford Hill Shomrim has reported the incident to the police and referred the case to Campaign Against Antisemitism for assistance.

    Common, things likes happens all over, even in New York – it is just most of the time they are very careful not to pronounce the word Jew just so you cannot file report, but the indication is beyond obvious.

    Rather than name the shop, which may well have unwelcome repercussions, the firm, for whom the shop is an agent for accepting parcels, should be contacted and asked to remove them from their list of agents.
