Alliance Justice spokesperson Trevor Lunn has said there is no place for racism in Northern Ireland, or any other society.
Mr Lunn was speaking after the Belfast Jewish Community received a message containing a racist image. Trevor Lunn said: “Members of the Jewish community first came to Northern Ireland around 150 years ago and have made a valuable contribution to our community over that time. Unfortunately, for a range of reasons in recent years there has been a fall in number amongst the Jewish community. That is why this incident involving a racist message must be condemned by all.
“We need to send a clear signal that these racist messages are not acceptable and should not be sent. We also need to send a message of support to the Jewish community that we support and stand with them.”
