Revisit to the Anti-Semitic but this time incidents.

Remember me writing about the whole meaning of Anti-Semitic and etc because Cameron commented about being a Zionist. I was just going through my BBC News App on my phone during breakfast; just to see if there was anything going on, also maybe researching things that might be interesting to talk about and make you guys aware what’s around you.

Remember me talking about the meanings of Zionist and etc; think I might of ranted about how racist and cruel people are still, back at the time I was writing the article. Guess what I’m back again writing a revisit to which something has brought my attention; that people are still hating people who dress different, being different to them and many more. 

It reminds me being back at secondary school that people would get into fights; bully people, and etc. All because they were being different and that they should be the same as them. Now days I don’t think I hear much about it in schools especially in my area anyways especially the school I went to. 

The headline that brought to my attention was this “Anti-Semitic incidents ‘at record level in UK’. The fact that the amount of reports of anti-Semitic incidents that have been reported in the first six months of this year 2017has hit the record levels because they are different.

The Community Security Trust (CST) claim that 767 reports have been made to them between January to June this year; which had rising up to 30% in the same time period of last year in 2016. 

Since 2016 the number of incidents that were involved with physical attacks from 45 to the grained total of 80. A quote from the company of CST was given by ‘CST chief executive David Delew said: “The hatred and anger that lies behind it is spreading.”’ The fact that CST had been recording anti-Semitic incidents just well over 30 years; this shows that members of the public have reported 568 incidents that has been casted as abusive behaviour to the CST, which shows and include that people are being shouted at in the street for wearing clothes that are related to their religion. 

There are furthermore 51 incidents that have been reported to damage and desperation to the Jewish property that have been recorded. It has been shown that it has been rising from 32 in 2016 that has been last recorded; along with 56 direct anti-Semitic threats were recorded, with the show of 10 victims been involved being threatened with knives, bats, sticks or vehicles.  

There has been 12 cases of mass-mailed of anti-Semitic leaflets or emails coming into their homes; showing that there has been lots of hatred towards them and their religion, clothing and the way that they speak.

National policing that is lead for anti-Semitism, Assistant Chief Constable Garry Shewan. He had called on the Jewish community to be able to come forward; if they are being targeted by other members of the public, they will be listened to and to be heard to. 

Garry Shewan quoted “There is never any excuse for abuse, racism or hate crime” he then went to add on to his statement “I want to encourage anyone who is targeted in this way to report to their local police – you will be listened to, taken seriously, and officers will do all they can to bring offenders to justice”

There’s a grand total of 570 or 74% of incidents depending how you look at it; this is recorded in Greater London and Greater Manchester, that have the two largest Jewish communities in the UK.
