The 71 people lost in the Grenfell Tower disaster were “burnt alive in a Jewish sacrifice” a volunteer aid assistant working with victims has claimed.
According to the Times, Tahra Ahmed, 47, told reporters that the south-west London fire was a “holocaust” and shared her view that Jews were responsible for the tragedy on her Facebook page. She wrote:
Watch the live footage of people trapped in the inferno with flames behind them. They were burnt alive in a Jewish sacrifice.
Grenfell is owned by a private Jewish property developer just like the Twin Towers. I wonder how much Goldman [Goldman Sachs,] is standing to make in the world’s most expensive real estate location [Kensington].
As the Times points out, Grenfell Tower is owned by the local Kensington and Chelsea London Borough Council. Goldman Sachs has had no involvement in the disaster apart from donating 100 boxes of children’s clothing and books, helping residents access technology and matching employees’ appeal donations.
Mark Gardner, of the Jewish Community Security Trust, responded to Ms. Ahmed: “To describe the appalling Grenfell Tower disaster as a Jewish sacrifice is to reach a new depth of grotesque antisemitic racism.
“Worse is that the traumatised survivors have to grapple with the reality that one of those who claims to stand up for them seems to be primarily motivated by a vile hatred of Jews.”
This is not the first time Ms. Ahmed has come to the attention of anti-Semitism watchdogs. On Facebook she has previously launched attacks on Jews. “Hitler and the Germans were the victims of the Jewish conspiracy to destroy Germany,” she once wrote.
The Grenfell Tower Enquiry is holding a Procedural Hearing on 11 and 12 December. It is being chaired by Sir Martin Moore-Bick.
