A shocking rise in anti-Semitism in the UK is forcing British Jews to consider leaving the country.
At the same time the hard-left took control of the Labor party in the country, an exhaustive report charts the rise in Jewish hatred. The report states that police and the politicians are “failing to enforce the law” and that British Jews are “convinced they have no choice but to emigrate,” Breitbart is reporting.
Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn has asked for an investigation into the rampant anti-Semitism within his own party after one of his party leaders called for Jews to be provided “transportation” out of the Middle East and the Mayor of London, also a Labor party member said Adolph Hitler was a “Zionist.”
Despite once calling members of Hezbollah and Hamas his “friends,” Corbyn refused to admit there was a problem or a crisis – just a concern.
But in a national crime audit from the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism, it reported some shocking numbers:
- In 2014, anti-Semitic crime broke all previous records. Many linked the surge in Jew-hatred across Britain to fighting between Israel and Hamas, and expected anti-Semitic crime levels to fall to a background level. That is not what happened.” Here are some of the shocking statistics:
- Police forces recorded a 25.7% increase in hate crime against Jews, making it the worst year on record for anti-Semitic crime. The level of anti-Semitic crime was consistently high throughout the year.
- Violent anti-Semitic crime jumped by 50.8%. In 2014 violent acts accounted for 16.9% of all anti-Semitic crime, but by 2015 violent acts accounted for 20.3% of anti-Semitic crime.
- Despite the growth in anti-Semitic crime, police forces charged 7.2% fewer cases in 2015 than in 2014, meaning that only 13.6% of cases resulted in charges being brought.
There was no change in the non-criminal anti-Semitic acts reported to the police, meaning that in 2015 a higher proportion of the anti-Semitic acts reported to the police were criminal.
The rise in anti-Semitism seems exclusive to the big cities as rural areas actually saw a drop in anti-Semitic activities.
“This data should alarm those responsible for enforcing the law: they are failing British Jews badly,” the report starts. “Britain has the political will to fight antisemitism and strong laws with which to do it, but in too many cases, those responsible for tackling the rapidly growing racist targeting of British Jews are failing to enforce the law. “If the situation continues to deteriorate, the Jewish community will be faced with the kind of rampant antisemitism seen in other European countries, which has left Jews feeling fearful and abandoned, many of them convinced that they have no choice but to emigrate.”
