UK prime minister slams antisemitism after activist calls to ‘F*ck the Jews’

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweets support for the Jewish community after a video appears to show a pro-Palestinian activist calling to “fuck the Jews; rape their daughters.”

“There is no place for antisemitism in our society. Ahead of Shavuot, I stand with Britain’s Jews who should not have to endure the type of shameful racism we have seen today,” Johnson tweets.

The video, which shows a convoy of cars waving Palestinian flags and a person yelling on a loudspeaker out of one of them, is purportedly taken on Finchley Road, a heavily Jewish area of north London.
