Antisemitic sign on Essex car showroom

Source: southendnewsnetwork


Rayleigh, Essex - an antisemitic sign appeared on a car showroom close to the A127 and Rayleigh Weir.

 

According to witnesses, the illuminated showroom sign poked fun at the way that a Jewish person may throw their arms in the air to express shock, amazement or distress, while simultaneously saying ‘oy.’

 

One local member of the Jewish community told our Chief Reporter that he has been left ‘shaking with rage’ at the incident.

 

Phil Tefish added: ‘So apparently it is now OK to poke fun and make light of a very Jewish habit. You wouldn’t see a shop sticking up the word ‘Allah’ with an exclamation mark after it, or a chocolate shop with the phrase ‘Sweet Jesus’ plastered all over the front.’
