UK: More than half of antisemitic physical attacks aren't reported

The findings were based on a 2012 poll commissioned by the European Union’s Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) – the largest survey ever carried out among the continent’s Jewish population.

Whereas only six per cent of UK Jews experienced antisemitism recently at a sporting occasion, 37 per cent said they had done so in an academic or school setting.


Forty-six per cent of instances of anti-Jewish vandalism had not been reported, along with 57 per cent for physical violence and 71 per cent for verbal abuse.

When it came to the perpetrators, victims of such incidents pointed the finger more at those with extremist Islamic or left-wing political views than more traditional agents of antisemitism such as the far-right.
