The number of anti-semitic hate crimes reported to police has soared in parts of the UK, police figures reveal.
A number of the largest forces in the country are recording rising numbers of offences against Jewish people and property, figures from police forces show.
In London and Greater Manchester the total more than doubled in a year, while there were also increases in Merseyside, West Midlands and West Yorkshire.
Crimes included assault, harassment, arson and criminal damage.
The UK has been continually gracious to radical Islamic elements in its midst, even going so far as to formally embrace some aspects of Sharia law. Last year, the fevered crazies gathered for a “Free Palestine” protest that police said was “largely peaceful” but was filled with plenty of seed sowing for the future.
As long as Israel is painted as an aggressor because it wants to protect itself, the hatred for it will grow among those easily manipulated by the growing class of professional agitators here and abroad. When leaders explicitly pretend Islamic violence isn’t really Islamic violence all the while implicitly agreeing with the “Israel is a bully!” crowd, it’s just more fuel on an already burning fire.
