A world renowned filmmaker who captured a group of men spout hatred toward Jews in a Derry bar has said he has never seen so much anti-semitism as what he did during his entire visit to Northern Ireland.
In a clip which has gone viral on social media the 62-year-old visits Derry’s Bogside area and asks bemused locals why there are so many Palestinian flags flying in the area.
Some drinkers that respond say they “hate Jews” describing Israelis as “child murdering scum” and they were the “scourge of the Earth”.
One of the group shouted: “The only thing Hitler did wrong was he didn’t kill enough f***ing Jews.”
“And not just in the bar outside it too. People were honest, ‘we don’t like the Jews no matter what.’”
He acknowledged there was a connection in the history of Irish republicanism with the Palestine Liberation Organisation.
All in a day’s work (from many years ago).
