Such a story would certainly make international news - probably for days on end. Outraged politicians of all parties would offer sympathy to the Muslim community and demand the arrest of the Jews involved and there would be weeks of soul-searching by the Jewish community about its responsibility for this disgrace in its name.
Well it transpires that exactly such an event took place in the centre of Bradford, except the role of the religions was reversed. So the story never made it into the public domain (as far as I can find). In fact, it was only revealed as a footnote in a report today by Ben Judah
..on one of the last occasions the Jews gathered visibly in the street outside the synagogue for a funeral something went terribly wrong. The hearse carrying the remains of the son of one the founding rabbis of the synagogue was trying to reach the synagogue, but both ends of the street were mysteriously blocked with traffic. Rudi says then Asian youths burst out and began shaking the hearse. Others saw them fly a Palestinian flag.I found Judah's report in this Elder of Ziyon article about antisemitism in the UK, which features a shocking video from the Daily Mail showing the antisemitism directed at a journalist wearing a kippah in the streets of the UK.
It is ironic that the Daily Mail article - like the BBC Radio 4 programme on antisemitism that I blogged about yesterday - tries to suppress the fact that the antisemitism is almost exclusively from Muslims. And that, presumably, is the reason why the funeral story was suppressed. I would also not be surprised if the Board of Deputies of British Jews did everything possible to suppress the story in the interests of 'preserving community relations', i.e. so as not to compromise their main objective of sucking up to the Muslim Brotherhood. But I will never know because the Board of Deputies never responds to any letters I ever send them.
