UK has record 892 anti-Semitic incidents for first half of 2019

The pro-Palestinian Left has made the United Kingdom dangerous for Jews, as it has for the rest of Western Europe. If Jeremy Corbyn is elected Britain’s next Prime Minister, then life will be completely untenable for UK’s Jews. Jews must flee. The next government of Israel must take significant action to make immigration to Israel economically viable for Europe’s Jews.

UK anti-Semitic incidents hit a ‘record high,’ says watchdog group

Times of Israel, August 1, 2019:

The first half of 2019 saw a precipitous rise in incidents targeting members of the UK Jewish community, Britain’s primary anti-Semitism watchdog stated in a new report released on Thursday.

According to the London-based Community Security Trust, which has been recording incidents since the early 1980s, the first six months of this year saw a record high total of 892 anti-Semitic incidents.

The group said it was the highest number of incidents it had ever recorded in the January-to-June period of any year and is a 10 percent increase from the 810 incidents recorded during the same period in 2018; which was itself a record high for a six-month period. There was a record annual total of 1,688 anti-Semitic incidents in the UK in 2018.

“This is the third year in a row that CST has seen an increase in reports of antisemitic incidents,” the group’s chief executive David Delew said in a statement. “The problem is spreading across the country and online, it reflects deepening divisions in our society and it is causing increasing anxiety in the Jewish community. It will take people of all communities and backgrounds standing together to turn this tide of hate around.”

here was a 37 percent increase in violent incidents compared to the same reporting period the previous year, the CST found, recording 85 anti-Semitic assaults during the first six months of 2019, up from 62 the previous year.

There were 323 incidents involving social media compared to 221 incidents online in the first half of 2018, an increase of 46 percent. However, the CST warned, “it is difficult to assess whether this reflects an increase in the amount of antisemitism online, or more reporting of the phenomenon.”
