ncle Adolf in a parcel to a Jewish mum. Police are investigating the anti-Semitic note as a hate crime after a horrified customer found it attached to a toy she had ordered for her niece online. The woman, aged in her 30s and from north London, was left so upset she was off work for two days. She does not want to be named for fear of reprisals, but her outraged friend Liran Meydat is speaking out in the hope of bringing the poison pen writer to justice. Amazon said it had sacked the worker responsible (Image: PA) IT manager Liran, 39, said: British Jews feel scared to speak out. Im an Israeli and have
lived here for a few years so I dont feel scared. When I heard what had happened it made me think about my grandfather who showed me the number on his arms from the Polish death camps. He lost all his family there. When she told us about the note she was shaking - shes a very gentle and humble lady. She does a lot for charity - both Jewish and non-Jewish - and helps all
members of the community, thats why she took it very badly.

w theyve handled it. The only exception is Amazon. We contacted them on the same day and didnt hear anything back.
