POLICE are investigating after an explosive device was delivered to a house in an incident they are treating as an anti-semitic hate crime.

A stretch of Clayhall Avenue in Clayhall was closed at around 3pm yesterday (November 12) after police received reports that a suspicious package had been delivered to the house.

The package was examined and made safe by explosives experts.

The road was reopened at 4.35pm, but the house remained cordoned off while police conducted their investigation.

Nobody was injured during the incident and police say the package posed no danger to the public.

They are not treating the incident as terrorist related.

I hope the Police deal with this Anti-Semitism with the enthusiasm that they deal with any mere mention or hint of suspicion of a Muslim 'Hate' Crime.

These are worrying undertones and I hope they leave no stone unturned to find the Crooks and hope they are dealt with at the Courts

How are the police treating it then?. An explosive device being delivered to your door because of your religion? Are we still living in the UK?

'They are not treating the incident as terrorist related.'

Blowing up strangers is therefore what, precisely? Unfortunate choice of phrase.

An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.

We should stand together as a community and unanimously condemn this vile and cowardly act,

Any equivocation is unacceptable.

Those off all faiths and none should be shoulder to shoulder in solidarity..

I am utterly horrified that this has happened in my Borough.

Much of the rise in Anti-semitic attacks have been blamed on Muslim's and pro -Palestinians.

Perhaps that's why it's get's swept under the carpet by many in the media?

One rule for one and all that!
