UK Express (h/t Brenda K) A devastated dad has been forced to abandon his Newham home after being beaten up 30 times in three years for ‘being Jewish’.
As an anti-Semitism debate rages in the Labour party, 52-year-old Yisro’el Shalom says he was forced to flee the community of Newham, east London after racist thugs turned his life into a living nightmare. Mr Shalom, a widower, has spoken out after years of torment led him to take drastic action.
Catalogue of incidents he kept track of in just a three year period include:
- Death threats that left him fearing for his life
- Sinister Nazi symbols including swastikas daubed on his home
- Being physically attacked 30 times, including being punched and kicked by five yobs on the floor
