"Zero tolerance to hate": A statement from the Camden Faith Leaders' Forum

Co-chairs of the Camden Faith Leaders' Forum, Councillor Abdul Hai and Phil Rosenberg have issued the following statement in response to the anti-Semitic graffiti which appeared in Hampstead and Belsize Park over the weekend. 

“The anti-Semitic daubings in Hampstead and Belsize Park during the Jewish festival of Hanukkah are an affront to all in Camden. We are a Borough that cherishes its diversity as one of its greatest strengths. 

“We are grateful to council staff for their quick work in removing the hateful graffiti and to police for providing enhanced protection. We would call on the police to do everything possible to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice. It is essential that we show zero tolerance to hate of any kind.”
