A van driver has been caught on film yelling ‘Hitler was a great man, he knew what he was doing’.
The incident was allegedly sparked by a row over parking on Friday inLondon’s Stamford Hill.
Stamford Hill is known as a Jewish area and is home to a large population of orthodox Hasidic Jews.
The driver, who is black and speaks with a Caribbean accent, repeats the racist phrase several times when asked by the Jewish man.
In the brief clip, the Jewish man can be heard saying: ‘One more time, say it again.’
The driver replies: ‘Hitler was a great man. He knew what he was doing.’
He adds: ‘You think you own the world. You don’t own the world.
‘This is Stamford Hill, this ain’t Israel, okay?’
Stamford Hill Shomrim, a Jewish neighbourhood watch group, said they have passed the footage of the incident to the police.
Rabbi Herschel Gluck OBE, president of the organisation, said in a statement: ‘The words used in this antisemitic rant is absolutely abhorrent and disgusting.
‘I am deeply shocked that a person can hold and feel free to express such despicable views.’
