Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither (Benjamin Franklin)

Anti-Semitic incidents continue

leave a comment »

There was a 9% rise in anti-Semitic incidents in the UK in the first half of 2008 compared with the same period last year, a charity has reported.

There were 266 incidents up to June, compared with 244 last year, according to the Community Security Trust (CST).

Some 166 were incidents of abusive behaviour, including verbal abuse, hate mail and anti-Semitic graffiti.

CST admitted that improved contact with smaller Jewish communities “goes some way to explaining the overall rise”.

Incidents involving Jewish students or academics and at colleges rose 88%, from 26 to 49.
