Sickening video shows someone in a convoy of cars driving through London shouting “f–k the Jews” and “rape their daughters” — scenes condemned by UK leader Boris Johnson as “shameful racism.”
Footage shot overhead in North London Sunday caught the anti-semitic hate speech blasted over a loudspeaker from one of several cars adorned with Palestinian flags.
“F–k their mothers. Rape their daughters. We have to send a message,” the loud voice barked, according to Jewish News.
London’s Metropolitan Police said it received a flood of complaints about the convoy — and managed to trace it with a police helicopter, eventually cutting off the cars.
Four men were arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated public order offenses, the force said as it heightened patrols in Jewish neighborhoods.
“This behavior was utterly shocking and will not be tolerated,” Superintendent Jo Edwards insisted.
Prime Minister Johnson said that there was “no place for antisemitism in our society.”
“I stand with Britain’s Jews, who should not have to endure the type of shameful racism we have seen today,” he tweeted.
Opposition leader Sir Keir Starmer called it “utterly disgusting.”
“Antisemitism, misogyny and hate have no place on our streets or in our society. There must be consequences,” he tweeted.
The threats were made amid the escalating violence between Israel and Hamas militants.
“Unfortunately we’ve seen it in recent years, whenever there is tension in the Middle East or violence it can spill over into our city,” London Mayor Sadiq Khan told “Good Morning Britain” Monday of “the most diverse city in the world.”
Police “take allegations of these crimes extremely seriously,” he said, urging hate-crime victims to come forward.
