Antisemetic Incidents January–June 2015
CST recorded 473 antisemitic incidents across the United Kingdom in the first six months of 2015. This is an increase of 53 per cent from the 309 antisemitic incidents recorded in the first six months of 2014, which was itself an increase of
38 per cent from the 223 antisemitic incidents recorded during the first half of 2013. CST recorded 312 antisemitic incidents in the first six months of 2012, 294 in the first half of 2011 and 325 in the first half of 2010.1 The highest
number of antisemitic incidents recorded by CST in the January–June period came in 2009, when 629 antisemitic incidents were recorded. This was largely due to antisemitic reactions to the conflict in Gaza in January of that year.
CST recorded 1,174 antisemitic incidents during the full calendar year of 2014, which was more than double the 535 antisemitic incidents recorded during the full year of 2013 and was the highest annual total ever recorded by CST.
