Default Goulston Street Grafitti

So over the past day or so i've been asking a few questions that have been playing on my mind about the case(s).

One thing left currently is about the grafitti 'the Juwes are the ones who won't be blamed for nothing'

Whether or not the Ripper wrote it, I have no idea what the message of it really is - is it blaming the Jews for the murders (or anything), or is it trying to divert blame? I have no idea and it's really intriguing.

Anyone have any ideas?

The only real problem with scrubbing/not photographing the message is that we can't see the context of the message (i.e. was there really loads of coincidental grafitti around or is there not and therefore a likelihood that the Ripper wrote it. If so, also the handwriting I suppose.

Again, apologies if this has been asked before.

It has been discussed before of course but my opinion is that it was just that, graffiti, nothing to do with murders just someone with a grudge against Jews.

Dammit.
I can't access the other one now, Dave...its in a magazine-format issue of Ripperologist...not an ezine.
If I can get my mitts on it, I'll send it to you.

By the way, Don Rumbelow, Colin Wilson, Philip Sugden, Paul Begg, Tom Wescott, and fyi, yours truly, think it is legit.

Yes, there's been plenty of debate about it in the past, David, but I agree with String - in all likelihood, it was not written by the killer - rather, perhaps, by somebody who was just a bit gruff about the influence of the expanding Jewish population in the area. That the apron piece was tossed aside by the killer as he passed the Wentworth dwellings is almost certainly coincidental IMO.

Cheers,
Adam.

Just a small chance that it was an angry message written by a guy who lost his rag.
