Antisemitic incident in central London as knife-wielding woman arrested

An antisemitic incident occurred in the heart of the British capital when an armed woman threatened passersby in the center of Stamford Hill, one of Britain’s largest and most populated Jewish neighborhoods.

The woman was filmed shouting at a Jewish man, “You are to blame for all the problems in the world. You always start fights! Who started World War II? The Jews!”

Officers from London’s Metropolitan Police arrived at the scene and arrested the woman, threatening her with a taser and instructing her to lie on the ground. The woman was taken into custody for questioning.
