To date, there is no evidence that this egg-throwing was anti-semitic…
—Letter to The Guardian from Respect members about the incident in which eggs were thrown at MP Oona King and other participants in a ceremony honoring victims of a V2 rocket attack.
“One theory is that the abuse was directed at Oona King (…). However, quite a number of the attendees were wearing kippot (skull caps), and some of the abuse shouted was vocally anti-Semitic. I heard people shouting ‘you f***ing Jews’.”
—David Russell, spokesman for the Jewish East End Celebration Society
