Rise in antisemitism makes 2012 third worst year on record

Source: THE JEWISH CHRONICLE ONLINE

Antisemitic incidents in Britain rose slightly last year, making 2012 the third worst year on record.

Figures released by the Community Security Trust show there were 640 reported attacks against Jews, up from 608 the previous year and representing a national increase of five per cent year-on-year.

CST said around 100 incidents had been reported as part of a new programme run with the Metropolitan Police in London, with the two organisations sharing all reports of antisemitism.

The more efficient reporting system led to a 55 per cent increase in incidents recorded by CST in the capital.

1. "You Jews need to be got rid of. Why don't you go back to Israel?Go back to Israel where you belong"

Interesting comment. Last I heard, they don't want Jews to be in Israel, either.

2. I dunno. The 1930s and 1940s weren't exactly a party for Jews. nt

6. In Britain. And is this increase an artifact of "the more efficient reporting system"?

7. Depressing

I hardly even get surprised anymore when I see stats like this. 55% increase in incidents - just fucking depressing.

8. Since religious groups have drifted to "hard line" this seems to be happening more

Sure miss the kumbya of the 1960's when I wasn't afraid to walk into churches because I might get shot because I looked wrong.
