Anti-Semitic Sentiment Rises in the UK

VIVA – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday that the government would support the British Jewish community in any way after a spike in anti-Semitic incidents, including an attack on a rabbi, following clashes in Gaza.

The Community Security Trust (CST), which advises some 280,000 British Jews on security issues, said it had recorded 106 anti-Semitic incidents since May 8 compared with 19 incidents in the previous 11 days, or a fivefold increase.

“I share the horror of the anti-Semitic incident and the government has conveyed the message firmly and clearly to those responsible for enforcing the law against hate crimes,” Johnson said, responding to a question in parliament from Keir Starmer, leader of the opposition Labor Party.

“As a country and as a society, we are calling for this at every stage. We will not let it take root, we will not let it grow and rot,” Johnson said.
