    Anti-Semitic incidents 'at record level in UK'

    Reports of anti-Semitic incidents have hit record levels in the first six months of 2017, according to a Jewish charity.

    The Community Security Trust (CST) said 767 reports were made to them between January and June - a rise of 30% on the same period last year.

    A total of 80 incidents involved physical attacks - up from 45 in 2016.

    CST chief executive David Delew said: "The hatred and anger that lies behind it is spreading."

    The CST has been recording anti-Semitic incidents for more than 30 years.

    Members of the public reported 568 incidents of abusive behaviour to the CST, including people being shouted at in the street for wearing clothes related to their religion.

    I put this in the "rip-off" sub-forum here because surely there is not any individual body that has been more ripped off over the years than the Jews.

    I do notice that this indication does not just concern our Jewish neighbours but many other religions in the UK are now getting attacked on the street due to the hatred that has built up because of terrorist attacks her and in other parts of the world.

    Nice one Zathrus.

    I don't know whether you are a Jew or not, and that does not matter, but this attention to a further step towards the Jewish question is one that we should all be aware of.

    While, all "other" religions in Britain are getting some abuse by the bigots, I guess that we have to consider modern anti-Semitism as well when we are thinking about religious persecution.

    Sadly anything that is different from the norm in Britain today is going to get picked on by the haters and the Anti-semites.

    One might have thought that by now we would have been able to accept all of the myriad religions that make up the freedoms in Britain, but at the moment the Islamic religion in particular is getting much more persecution because of the amounts of terrorist atrocities that are committed in the name of Islam.

    I think the rise in anti-semetism in Britain is just another spin-off from the hatred that is growing for Muslims.

    Both total nonsense of course.

    It is not only Jews who are Semites, all the people of the Middle east are Semitic peoples.

    Of course you are right there HG, but even if the proper derivation of the word Semite is: "a member of any of the peoples who speak or spoke a Semitic language, including in particular the Jews and Arabs", most of the people recognise "anti-Semitism" as, rightly or wrongly, being against the Jews.

    I don't know anybody that might consider anti-semitism to be specifically against the Arabs.
