Stamford Hill and the Campaign against the “Jewification of Britain”

Enza Ferreri


Until a few years, or even one year, ago I wouldn’t have believed that an anti-Jewish —(not anti-Israel) mass protest by Whites (not by Muslims) could have taken place in Britain.

And yet, a march against the “Jewification of Great Britain” was planned by Joshua Bonehill, the 22-year-old leader of National Liberation. Scheduled for 22 March, it was called “Liberate Stamford Hill”, after an area of north-east London home to about 20,000 Jews. This is a poster of the proposed demo, which according to The Guardian was reading: “On 22nd of March as one white and unified mass movement we will be finally pointing the finger in the right direction … You owe it to your race white man.”

The namesake Facebook page of the campaign appearing on the poster has been removed, and if you search it on FB you’ll end up with its opposite: “Liberate Stamford Hill from Fascists”.

The poster shows the photos of two phenomena appearing in the streets of Stamford Hill that the White Nationalists oppose: a member of the Shomrim, the corporate Jewish Police that started patrolling the neighbourhood in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks on Jews, and a Jewish sign telling women on which side of the road they should walk.

The campaign’s Twitter account has also been taken down. Since announcing the Liberate Stamford Hill march, Bonehill and other 5 of its organisers have been arrested, with 3 of them banned from entering London.

As a result, the protest has been postponed to May 2. This is, as the Daily Bale News website puts it, “due to unprecedented mass abuse of police powers previously never applied to the Jewish EDL”, a reference to the Jewish connections of the pro-Israel English Defence League, whose target has mostly been Islam.

But Stamford Hill has not been quiet in recent times. On the planned day of the postponed protest, a group of over 20 men and women stormed a synagogue in the area. The blog Endzog reported:

Six indigenous white Fascists from the new fascist movement Liberate also known as ‘National Liberation’ protesting against the Jewish Occupation of Britain have been arrested after an antisemitic attack by 20 Liberate and associated activists at a synagogue in the Jewish Occupied settlement and mini theocratic state of Stamford Hill North London — leaving one Jew needing minor hospital treatment after Jews turned violent in the fracas.

As Jews have used their huge financial power to buy up properties in the area over the years, the indigenous people have been gradually forced out. Meanwhile Jewish MPs and Jewish controlled local councils have brought several million 3rd world immigrants into London to ethnically cleanse it of English people.

A small demo organised by other nationalist groups did take place in Stamford Hill on 18th April.

Another possibly related episode concerns a store in Tottenham, another district in north London, belonging to the mobile (or cell) phone giant company EE. Staff at the shop refused to give phone chargers to at least two Orthodox Jewish men wearing traditional attire.

Assistant manager Daniel Reid was contacted by The Jewish Chronicle and reportedly told the paper: “There is no discrimination in our business. I am black and Christian. I am not being funny, Jewish people are very arrogant but we serve them to the best of our ability. I do find them arrogant.”

The allegation of “arrogance” is interesting, because it is not isolated. In July 2010 Christina Patterson, a Stamford Hill resident who was for ten years until 2013 a journalist on the staff of The Independent, wrote a column, “The limits of multi-culturalism”, in which she complained of the bad manners of the Hasidic Jews living in her neighbourhood:

I would like to say to the man from whom I bought some paper cups, and who handled my money as if it had been dipped in anthrax, that it wouldn’t kill him to say “please” or “thank you”, and I would like to say to the fishmonger who asked my (black) friend whether he really wanted to buy some fish from his shop, that you should probably assume that if someone is asking for fish in your shop, then the answer is in the affirmative.

And I would like to say to the little boy who sat bang in the middle of two seats on the bus and who, when I tried to sit next to him, leapt up as if infection from the ebola virus was imminent, that it does slightly make one feel like a pariah, and I would like to say to the women who roam the streets with double-decker pushchairs and vast armies of children, that it’s sometimes nice to allow someone else to get past, and I would like to say to all these people that I don’t care if they wear frock-coats, and funny suits and hats covered in plastic bags, and insist on wearing their hair in ringlets (if they’re male) or covered up by wigs (if they’re female), but I do think they could treat their neighbours with a bit more courtesy and just a little bit more respect.

When I moved to Stamford Hill, 12 years ago, I didn’t realise that goyim were about as welcome in the Hasidic Jewish shops as Martin Luther King at a Klu Klux Klan convention. I didn’t realise that a purchase by a goy was a crime to be punished with monosyllabic terseness, or that bus seats were a potential source of contamination, or that road signs, and parking restrictions, were for people who hadn’t been chosen by God. And while none of this is a source of anything much more than irritation, when I see an eight-year-old boy recoiling from a normal-looking woman (because, presumably, he has been taught that she is dirty or dangerous, or, heaven forbid, dripping with menstrual blood) it makes me sad…

[T]here’s nothing in the Torah to say that…  goyim should be treated with contempt.

There certainly is in the Talmud.

The article, published in The Independent,  a politically correct paper with Leftist tendencies, was extolling the overall virtues of multiculturalism.

This didn’t save Patterson from entering the Simon Wiesenthal Centre’s Top Ten Anti-Semitic Slurs list for 2010.  She was fired from her newspaper 3 years later, although no-one can say whether the two things are connected. Ms. Patterson, who was clearly a fan of the Left, wrote at the time:

The LA Simon Wiesenthal Centre had, it said, “unveiled its Top Ten Anti-Semitic Slurs” for 2010 and I — nestling between a Lithuanian Holocaust-denier, who described the Nuremberg trial as “the biggest legal farce in history”, and anonymous contributions on the Goldman Sachs message boards, which begged for the return of the Gestapo and exhorted readers to “burn all the Jews” — was at No 9…

They [the Simon Wiesenthal Centre], and their friends in this country, seem pretty damn serious that anyone, anywhere, who criticises the behaviour of anyone who happens to be Jewish should be stuck in the stocks and slapped with a label that marks them out as not just racist, but a hater of a particular, entire race, so that when anyone puts their name in Google, what pops up is words like “anti-Semitic”, “prick” and “bigot”. They seem pretty damn serious that their support for “Jewish Rights in the World” translates into direct support of Israel, too.

Patterson managed, though, to shed the spotlight on Stamford Hill and its ultra-orthodox Hasidic Jewish inhabitants. The Telegraph reported:

There are now estimated to be around 1.3m Haredi [of which Hasidim are a part] worldwide, and according to a 2007 study by Dr Yaakov Wise at the University of Manchester, strictly-orthodox Jewry in Europe is expanding more rapidly than at any time since before the Second World War. In Britain — home to the largest Haredi community in Europe — almost three out of every four Jewish births are in the Haredi community. If current trends continue, the strictly-Orthodox will constitute the majority of British Jews by 2050. [Emphasis added]

High birth rates are something we normally associate with Muslims.

The similarities between Islam and Judaism, both of which are particularist and supremacist doctrines, full of contempt for those who don’t believe in them, are astounding. Indeed, the comments on the behavior of Hasidic Jews in London echo the notorious behavior of Hasidic Jews in Postville, Iowa. They had no interest in developing social ties with their new neighbors or conform to community norms — even seemingly trivial ones such as taking care of their lawns, shoveling their sidewalks, or raking their leaves. They had no concern about the community as a whole; they treated their neighbors like strangers. In a small Midwestern American town, that is a recipe for distrust and even hatred.

There are also similarities between Muslim and Jewish communities living in Britain and in Western countries generally, and the problems they cause.

Both have their own approved food, respectively halal and kosher which, in the case of meat, has to derive from animals slaughtered inhumanely without previous stunning; both, in the case of certain groups, tend to self-segregation, self-isolation, desire not to integrate into the wider society, ghettoisation; both wish to differentiate and separate themselves through their clothing; both have feelings of being superior; both have a different ethical code for the treatment of ingroup and outgroup members (“What you do to the goyim is not the same as what you do to Jews”); both are obsessed with purity and with not being contaminated by the impure kaffir or goyim; both consider kaffir or goyim not quite human and think that these outsiders’ purpose is to be their own slaves; both have ways of separating men from women and consider contact between the sexes to be avoided; both have arranged marriages; both have their own courts; both have their own police. Both, in short, are Middle Eastern cultures.

London Jewish patrols have cars that look very similar to police vehicles and bear the security group’s name “Shomrim” — Hebrew for “guards” — along the sides and back. Their uniforms also bear that name. According to Wikipedia, Brooklyn and Baltimore in the US also have Shomrim: “However, the volunteer patrol in New York has been criticized by the New York City Police Department for not always notifying police when a call comes in.”

Muslims also instituted patrols in London, a sort of Sharia morality police to ensure that everyone around certain mosques follows Sharia law. For example Muslim patrols tell passers-by that they can’t walk a dog (impure animal in Islam), wear a skirt, or drink alcohol. In fact Islamic doctrine requires the application of Islamic law within a mosque’s geographical reach.

Finally, paedophilia is a problem that seems to affect Muslim and Jewish communities in higher proportion than the White population, which may derive from their attitudes to it, different from ours.

For Islam, what we consider paedophilia is not even a sin or a crime, as attested by very numerous facts, including that its prophet Muhammad the perfect man who should serve as a model for all Muslims — married A’isha when she was 6 and consummated their marriage when she was 9, and that paedophilia is commonly practiced with the blessing of the law in Muslim countries today as child marriage.

In Judaism too paedophilia is not considered immoral. In the Talmud we find this:

A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition [coitus], and if her deceased husband’s brother cohabits with her, she becomes his.

And this:

When a grown-up man  has had sexual intercourse with  a little girl [less than three-years old],  or when a small boy  has intercourse with a grown-up woman, or [when a girl was accidentally] injured by a piece of wood [that penetrated her hymen] — [in all these cases] their kethubah [a wife’s marriage settlement] is two hundred [zuz].

Despite the similarities, the Jewish and Muslim questions have very different repercussions for Whites, and this subject has been regularly and repeatedly discussed.

How in my opinion these two questions should be treated by White Nationalists will be the subject for the next article.
