Anti-semitic Youths Start New Wave of Terrorism in West Hampstead District of London

Attacks on Jews in the West Hampstead district of London have been taking place for some time, it was reported here today. Anti-Semitic hoodlums — usually youths armed with sticks — have been concentrating their assaults on elderly Jews whom they waylay in deserted sections of the district. Some Jewish residents of West Hampstead, according to the report, have been so frightened by the new wave of terrorism that they have not reported the attacks to the authorities.
