Orthodox Jewish Londoner receives threatening call after appearing with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Police involved
Orthodox Jewish activist Shraga Stern received a threatening phone call after appearing with Jeremy Corbyn to support the Labour leader after Corbyn was violently assaulted during a recent visit to Finsbury Park Mosque.
The day after the picture was published, Stern received a call at around a quarter to eleven in the evening, from a withheld number. According to the crime report, the anonymous caller told Stern:
You’re pictured with Jeremy Corbyn… Shame on you, be careful.
The incident report also outlines Stern’s “alarm and distress” at the abusive call and his willingness to cooperate fully with the police investigation.
The incident came less a week before Jewish Voice for Labour Chair Jenny Manson received a vile, antisemitic message from an anonymous caller as well as a similarly appalling email.
