Yadbyaduk, who drew this to our attention, inform us that they reported this to the police. Here’s hoping the authorities do something about it.
The guy who tweeted this desire to physically hurt a Jewish man he never met describes himself as a 19 year-old palestinian who goes to Middlesex University. This information has also been forwarded to the police, so besides being charged with a hate crime, he’ll hopefully also be turfed out of that academic institution.
For the record, here’s what he looks like.

Meanwhile, in case you think his desire to beat up a Jew stems from a hatred of Israel alone..

Update: I see the pics in the tweets are not appearing now.
Here is a screenshot of the offending tweet.
And here is a photo of the youth in question (he is the one of the left):
