RELIGIONS NEWS AGENCY (REDNA) -According to recent figures by British Community Security Trust the antisemitism in Britain has increased by 147 percent in 2023 campared to the previous year.

The figures showed 4,103 cases of antisemitism happened in 2023, the highest annual total ever.

The British home office minister Chris Philp  said the figures were “nothing short of a disgrace and an outrage” and “members of Britain’s Jewish community are suffering a level of hatred and abuse which is frankly shameful”.

It was totally unacceptable for a small minority to incite hatred and commit crimes and the government expected the police to investigate and perpetrators to be brought to justice.

Shadow minister Yvette Cooper said the rise was intolerable and a stain on our society.

In the debate, MPs raised concerns over antisemitism in schools, colleges and universities, and the targeting of MPs.
