CST: 2015 was third worst year for antisemitism in UK

CST’s Antisemitic Incidents Report 2015, published today, demonstrated that 2015 saw the “the third-highest annual total of antisemitic hate incidents in the UK” since such incidents have been recorded (in 1984).

Interestingly, CST notes that while 2014’s record high of 1,179 incidents were largely “caused by antisemitic reactions to Israel’s war with Hamas, and “the second-highest total of 931 incidents came in 2009”, also a year when there was a war in Israel and Gaza, there was no similar ‘trigger event’ in 2015 to explain the high annual total.
