ANTISEMITIC INCIDENTS REPORT January‒June 2012
CST recorded 299 antisemitic incidents across the United Kingdom in the first six months of 2012. This is an increase of 2 per cent from the 294 antisemitic incidents recorded in the first six months of 20111. CST recorded 325 antisemitic incidents in the first half of 2010, and 628 in the first half of 2009 – a record high, due to antisemitic reactions to the
conflict in Gaza in January of that year. The small increase in the number of antisemitic incidents recorded in the first half of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 masks two opposing trends: a large increase in recorded incidents
in London; and a similarly large fall in the number of recorded antisemitic incidents in Greater Manchester.
