The Daily Mail reports on a new report by the Campaign Against Antisemitism:
The number of hate crimes against Jews in Britain has reached a shocking new high, campaigners warn today.

An alarming new report shows that police forces recorded almost 1,000 anti-Semitic offences in 2015 – a 25 per cent rise on the previous year.

Violent attacks on Jews soared by 50 per cent and yet there was a worrying decline in the number of cases where suspects were charged.

Campaigners fear the worrying trend is being driven by Islamists, neo-Nazis and far-Left activists and students, who use social media to share sickening images similar to those seen in Nazi Germany.

In one shocking case, a mob shouting ‘Kill the Jews’ stormed a synagogue in Stamford Hill, North London, smashing windows and attacking worshippers.
I could not find any UK-wide statistics on anti-Muslim hate crimes last year. The closest apples-to-apples comparison I found was in London, where the police keep statistics on both antisemitic and anti-Muslim hate crimes.

Over the past 12 months it recorded 441 antisemitic hate crimes and 1,124 anti-Muslim hate crimes.  The number of anti-Muslim hate crimes in London has soared more than 50% in the past year, with an especially large increase immediately after the Paris attacks last year.

However, there are over a million Muslims in London, and only 172,000 Jews - nearly six times more Muslims than Jews.

This means that an average Jew in London has more than twice the chance of being the victim of a hate crime than a Muslim does.



We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
