Concern is growing in Britain’s Jewish community over anti-semitism in politics and the failure of authorities to enforce the law, according to a report.
Gideon Falter, chairman of Campaign against Antisemitism, which is publishing the report, titled Antisemitism Barometer 2017, said British Jews “pointed their fingers at the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and the Labour Party”.
They ranked Islamist anti-semitism as their greatest concern, followed by anti-semitism on the political far left and the far right. However, Falter said there were encouraging signs that the general public was rejecting prejudice, with a decline since a previous survey in 2015.
Falter said: “Fairly and quietly, Britons have been rejecting anti-semitic prejudice.
“If British society can fight anti-semitism, why are our world-renowned criminal justice system and some of our famous political parties still doing too little?”
