Capital has most anti-semitic cases (UK)

London had the most recorded incidents of anti-semitism in the country last year, a Jewish security charity has said.

A total of 219 anti-semitic incidents took place in the capital during the year, according to the Community Security Trust.

More than 639 reports of bigoted violence and abuse were received in total by the charity. They included street attacks, hate mail, threats, and the vandalism and desecration of Jewish property.

The charity, which monitors anti-Semitism in Britain, said the figures marked the second worst year since records began in 1984.

They were a significant fall on 2009, when 926 anti-Semitic incidents were recorded, fuelled by the ground invasion of Gaza by Israeli forces.

But researchers said they continued a long-term trend of rising numbers of physical and verbal attacks against Jews.

Mark Gardner, of the CST, said: "Anti-Semitism is not the most important thing in British Jewish life, but there is clearly a significant problem. The CST, police, politicians and Government will keep working in close partnership to tackle anti-Semitism and its wider causes of bigotry and extremism."

John Mann MP, chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group Against Anti-Semitism, said the figures were a "sad and timely reminder".

He said: "Our focus is absolute and we will continue to do all we can to ensure these numbers go down over the coming years."

There were 216 incidents in Manchester as well as 40 in Hertfordshire and 21 in Leeds.
