If Jack was Anti Semitic why didn't he actively seek out Jewish women to kill

I've always thought that the graffiti was rather tame for an antisemitic attack. That's why I never really bought into Mr. Fido's theory that it was a disgruntled punter who'd been ripped off by a Jewish trader. I would expect something like that to be a lot more venomous than some vague scrawl about Jews not taking responsibility. Then again, I don't know what the other antisemitic graffiti was like back then to compare it to. Either way, it's always worth bearing in mind that the GSG might well be a complete red herring.

I suppose you have to take into account time constraints and the materials he had to hand.
10 minutes, a piece of chalk and a brick?..You are hardly gonna scribble out War and Peace are you?
So he thought..."I'll make it succinct and to the point...while trying to avoid the double negative"...So scrawled it out

Then about a mile further up the road..suddenly thought

"Bugger!"
