UK: Drop of 18% in reported antisemitic incidents

On average, every five days a Jew is physically assaulted in the UK.

CST’s Antisemitic Incidents Report 2013 is published today and shows an 18% fall in the number of antisemitic incidents recorded in the United Kingdom in 2013 compared to 2012.

CST recorded 529 antisemitic incidents across the country during 2013, compared to 649 incidents in 2012. A further 465 reports were received but were not deemed to be antisemitic and are not included in this total.

The 529 antisemitic incidents recorded in 2013 included 69 violent antisemitic assaults, the same number as was recorded in 2012 and the lowest number of antisemitic assaults recorded in a single year since 2003. None were classified as ‘Extreme Violence’, which would involve a threat to life or grievous bodily harm (GBH).
