UK: Antisemitic incidents rise 11% in first six months of 2016

Incidents of antisemitism rose by 11% in the first six months of this year compared with the same period in 2015, according to the Community Security Trust.

The overall figure of 557 cases of malicious acts was the second highest ever recorded during a January-June period, the CST said.

There was no obvious trigger for the increase, said the organisation, which provides security to the UK Jewish community. Two years ago, the war in Gaza led to a big rise in antisemitic incidents in the UK.

I blame Global Warming.
