JNS.orgBritish-Jewish groups protested Sunday in London against the growth of anti-Semitism in the United Kingdom.

Standing outside London’s Royal Courts of Justice, the protestors called for “zero tolerance for anti-Semites,” reported AFP.

Sparked by this summer’s conflict in Gaza, 240 anti-Semitic incidents were recorded in July alone by the British anti-Semitism watchdog Community Security Trust, compared to 304 anti-Semitic incidents in the entire first six months of 2014.

In August, four British synagogues, as well as Jewish graves and Holocaust memorials, were vandalized. A branch of the supermarket chain Sainsbury’s removed all Kosher products from its shelves, including products made in Europe, in response to protests and vandalism by activists protesting the sale of products made in Judea and Samaria.

“British Jews are afraid,” Jonathan Sacerdoti of the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism said in a statement last week, “Citizens are looking to the police and government to enforce the law with zero tolerance against anti-Semites, as they do in other cases of racism. It is only through zero tolerance that the tide of anti-Semitism can be turned,” he said, reported Haaretz.
