 Antisemitic incidents in UK at record high for third year in a row

Jewish leaders express dismay at figures showing more than 100 incidents a month in 2018

Jewish community leaders and politicians have condemned a third successive year with a record number of antisemitic incidents.

Last year, 1,652 incidents, a 16% increase on 2017, were logged by the Community Security Trust, which has monitored antisemitism for 35 years and provides security to the UK Jewish community.

The CST said the spread of incidents throughout the year, with more than 100 a month, indicated a general atmosphere of intolerance and prejudice. However, there were also spikes related to events in Gaza and the argument over antisemitism in the Labour party.

You don't suppose this has something to do with the religion whose name must not be said out loud, do you? :whistle:
