Anti-Semitic incidents in the United Kingdom hit a new high last year, owing to escalating violence in Israel and Gaza, according to a Jewish advisory organisation.

The news: According to the Community Security Trust (CST), which provides security advice to Britain’s estimated 280,000 Jews, there were 2,255 anti-Semitic incidents reported in 2021, up 34 per cent over the previous year.

  • “These record levels of anti-Jewish racism, reported by our Jewish community to CST and police, show how difficult last year was for Jews across Britain,” the CST’s Chief Executive Mark Gardner said.
  • According to the survey, the number of instances increased as the confrontation between Israel and Palestinian militants grew.

Facts and figures: Six hundred and sixty-one occurrences were recorded in May, the highest monthly total ever, with another 210 in June, and a third of all events featured language or pictures relating to Middle East affairs or had an anti-Zionist intent.

  • According to the CST, there were 176 violent attacks reported this year, up 76 percent from the previous year.
  • The report cited a number of anti-Jewish convictions, including one guy who was imprisoned for founding a neo-Nazi organisation that supported “the eradication of Jewish people” and another who posted anti-Semitic homemade videos on social media.

“These statistics are shocking and a stark reminder that the racism of anti-Semitism has not been eradicated,” Home Secretary (interior minister) Priti Patel said.
