A hate-filled note attached to the doors of a synagogue has branded Jews as ‘child murderers’ in the latest of a spate of anti-Semetic attacks in Britain.
Samuel Landau, 26, the rabbi at Kingston, Surbiton and District Synagogue in Surrey, arrived this week to find the sick message attached to the entrance.
The father-of-one says he now feels threatened and has condemned those who ‘tar everybody with the same brush’.

Fear: Rabbi Samuel Landau, 26, who called the police when he found the note at the doors of the synagogue (pictured) said he no longer feels safe
The number of anti-Semitic attacks on Jewish people in Britain soared in July, believed to be because of the ongoing conflict in Gaza. One incident saw vandals target gravestones at a cemetery in Rochdale, Manchester
Statistics show that 304 anti-Semitic incidents were reported in the UK between January and June – a 36 per cent rise compared to the same period a year ago.
Mr Landau, a trainee criminal psychologist, called the police when he saw the note and believes he is at risk of similar attacks.
‘When the distinction between Palestine and Israel motivates you to behave in such a way – with no thought to debate or discussion – I think that is worrying,’ he said.
‘I am disappointed the society we live in is not able to process and think things through and tars everybody with the same brush. I feel less safe.’

“Groups of Asian men chanted ‘Heil Hitler’ as they drove through a Jewish area of Manchester, throwing missiles at passers-by.” Welcome to the strong, confident new multicultural Britain, where foes of jihad mass murder are banned from the country for their support of Israel, and the British government assiduously labors to appease and accommodate Islamic supremacists. This is the Britain that today’s British officials have made. Isn’t it wonderful?
