Anti-Semitic incidents in Britain have risen since the start of Israel’s operation in Gaza.
The Community Security Trust told the Jewish Chronicle that 70 anti-Semitic incidents had been reported in the period between the start of the operation on July 8 and July 25.
The Daily Mail reported July 27 that more than 100 hate crimes have been recorded by police and community groups so far in July, more than double the usual number.
“We are sending out emails to schools, shuls and Jewish organizations reminding them of safety protocols. We are determined to do all we can to allow Jewish life to continue as normal,” said Mark Gardner, director of communications at the security trust. — jta
