An anti-Semite spray-painted a neon-colored swastika on a car in the Jewish community in Kingswood, an area near the city of Bristol in the west of England.

Nick Bain, a Jew who lives there, said, “I’m completely shocked. It’s awful, it’s a punch. My wife, the granddaughter of the Holocaust survivor, and I feel anxious about it – it was right next to where we lived. We once felt it was a pretty safe neighborhood. It brought us to the edge. “There is a lot more hatred, a lot more selfishness and a swing towards nationalism.”

The incident was reported to Avon Police and Somerset Police and an investigation was opened.

Deputy and Acting Chairman of the World Zionist Organization, Yaakov Hagoel, said in response: “Incitement and cases of anti-Semitism against Jews do not go unnoticed even on the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur. Antisemitic hate criminals know exactly when to aim.

” I thank the local police who are taking this matter very seriously but it is not enough. “We must have a hard hand and a warning with heavy punishment, which will not let those perpetrators be free to carry out their plot against the Jews anywhere in the world,” Hagoel added.
