British 'Anti-Jewification Initiative' Organizers Plan Jewish Book Burning Event

"Bloody hell, it's 2015 — how is this still happening?"

Six people have been arrested after a group broke into a synagogue in a heavily Jewish area of north London, police said Sunday, describing the incident as anti-Semitic.

British activists are planning to rip and stomp on Israeli flags at a protest in one of London's largest Jewish communities next month.

But while Jews in the U.K. have perhaps become accustomed to anti-Israel displays, what’s different for the July 4 event is the activists’ stated intention to first meet privately and burn the Talmud, the text holding the key rabbinic commentary on the Torah and Jewish law.

July 4 also happens to be a Saturday, which is the Jewish sabbath.

Joshua Bonehill-Paine, whom the British newspaper the Jewish Chronicle described as a “white supremacist activist,” wrote on his website that the group will be protesting the “Shomrim,” a volunteer neighborhood watch-type group that works with police when crimes are reported by residents of neighborhoods with large ultra-Orthodox populations.

The protesters also plan to stand “in solidarity with those oppressed by the illegal state of Israel.”

Bonehill-Paine invited participants to bring Israeli flags to “dismember” by hand and to step on.

“There will also be a private ceremony held before the demonstration at an undisclosed and private location where copies of the Talmud books will be burnt in recognition of it’s racist Anti-White teachings,” he wrote. He also said he aims to “expose the vast cultural Marxist Jewish conspiracy at the heart of our government.”

Also as part of his “anti-Jewification initiative,” Bonehill-Paine announced the group will next be demonstrating in other predominantly Jewish neighborhoods of north London.
