2015 report on antisemitism in the UK.

A Campaign Against Antisemitism survey shows a bleak picture for UK Jewry. The results are so bad that the report describes itself a “Wake Up Call”.

The CAA report says that while UK antisemitism is not yet at the levels of Europe, it has reached a tipping point. The report describes a correlation between the rise of attacks on Israel and antisemitism, but the antisemitism doesn’t disappear when the the attacks on Israel subside.

There are approximately 269,000 Jews living in the United Kingdom.

Antisemitic incidents in 2014 was at its highest recorded levels in 30 years.

In July of 2014, 95% of all of London’s hate crimes were directed against Jews.

UK Aliyah to Israel was up 20% in 2014 from previous years.

Some key points from the survey follow:

 

The Jewish Perspective

2230 members of the UK’s Jewish community were polled:

70% of UK Jews believe their government doesn’t do enough to protect them from antisemitic attacks, and the community needs to protect itself.

58% are worried that Jews have no future in Europe.

56% see a similarity to the hate in the 1930s.

45% are worried that Jews have no future in England.

45% believe their family is threatened by Islamic extremism.

37% hide any visible signs of their Jewish affiliation while in public – such as a Star of David necklace or a kipa.

25% have considered leaving Britain due to antisemitism.

 

The Non-Jewish Perspective 3411 non-Jewish adults in the UK were polled:

45% agreed with at least 1 of the 7 antisemitic statements shown to them.

25% believe that Jews chase money more than other British people.

24% of Londoners think Jews have too much power in the media, with 17% of British adults believing that statement.

20% believe that UK Jews are less loyal to Britain than Israel.

18% believe that Jews believe they are better than other people.

13% believe that Jews talk about the Holocaust too much to get sympathy.

The question this survey doesn’t answer is, will this growing antisemitism translate into a wave of Aliyah from the UK, or will UK Jews just continue to worry about not having a future in England as the attacks escalate, while doing nothing about it.

  1. The Muslims have taken over England and they are bringing Sharia to that land. Many ask why Jews did not leave Germany when Hitler came to power? The writing is on the wall across Europe; Jews need to go to Israel where they have a say about their destiny…

  2. It is years of BBC indoctrination against the Jewish State. On the Internet the British are way overrepresented in hostility to Jews. However, there are pro-Israel groups in Britain like the English Defense League who are hounded and dubbed far-right by the establishment. This is what happens when "progressives" take over.

  3. The BBC is single handedly causing Europe to fall .
    They don't get it , they spew their garbage across England and Europe and the Jews get the backlash.
    But the Jews have a place to go.
    where are you going to go English man?
    Your stuck with what you brought upon yourselves.
