RELIGIONS NEWS AGENCY (REDNA) – The Jewish charity The Community Security Trust says antisemitic incidents in the UK were at an all-time high in the UK during 2023.

The report says that the rise to more than 4,000 incidents follows the Hamas-led attacks on Israel on 7 October last year.

The CST monitors antisemitism and provides security for the Jewish community in Britain.

The report says there were a total of 4,103 antisemitic incidents in the UK in 2023, nearly double the previous record of 2,261 incidents in 2021.

ITV news cites a number of incidents including the daubing of swastikas on a poster depicting a baby kidnapped by Hamas and pro-Palestine graffiti being sprayed on a bridge in Golders Green in London.

The report says there was at least one anti-semitic incident reported in every police region of the UK for the first time ever, with huge rises in London and Manchester, where ITV X report on the case of a five year old Jewish boy who is being “taught how to hide in the toilets” of his school in case there is an attack.
