UK up police in Jewish areas after Paris

  • UK police - armed -HOME
British police are increasing security patrols around Jewish areas in response to last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris. “The global picture of terrorist activity does give us heightened concern about the risk to the Jewish community in the UK,” said Britain’s assistant police commissioner and lead counterterrorism official Mark Rowley in a statement Friday. This was confirmed at a Whitehouse press conference by Prime Minister David Cameron last night.

“In addition to our existing security measures, we are in dialogue with Jewish Community leaders about further actions that we will taking, including more patrols in key areas,” Rowley said.

Rowley also referenced Thursday’s police raids on an apartment of suspected Islamic radicals in Belgium who were allegedly planning imminent terrorist attacks.

The assistant police commissioner added that the U.K.’s chief constables are discussing ways to address the “deliberate targeting” of police officers.

The U.K. previously stepped up security around Jewish schools in 2012 after the shooting at a Jewish school in Toulouse, France, which left four dead, the Guardian reported.

    I guess that many jews from Europe will consider leaving and going to Israel.

    I hope Jewish communal organizations in Britain wont still protect mosques when British sodiers are killed and British girls raped by Muslims, 
    and I hope rabnbis wont still pay solidarity visits to mosques when the native Brits have had enough
    but likely theyll still side with muslims

    Jewish community groups like the Community Security Trust and the Haredi Shomrim are too busy protecting mosques and helping Muslims against the native English
    When a British soldier Lee Rigby was murdered on the streets of London by Muslims certain rabbis chose not to visit and comfort Drummer Rigby's family but rather visit the Muslims in their mosques in a show of solidarity
