Flere utenlandske medier tar for seg antisemittismen som har veltet frem i kjølvannet av Gaza. Sunday Times tar for seg flere tilfeller i Storbritannia, med fysiske overfall på jøder.

Det har vært over 100 tilfeller på en måned, en fordobling.

One of the most serious offences took place in the early hours of July 18 when a rabbi was attacked near a Jewish boarding school in Gateshead.
Four Muslim youths from Newcastle, aged 16, 17, 18 and 19, have been charged with racially aggravated common assault.

On the same day, a brick was thrown through the window of Northern Ireland’s only synagogue in Belfast.

The repaired window was smashed again the next day. Police are treating the attacks as a religious hate crime and are appealing for witnesses.

On July 12, following a pro-Palestinian rally in Manchester, four or five cars full of Asian men are said to have driven through Higher Broughton, a suburb of nearby Salford with a large Jewish population, shouting anti-semitic remarks, including chants of “Heil Hitler.”

Police were told that the men also threw eggs and drinks cans at passers-by.

In north London, the CST says one pro-Israel organisation received a bomb threat by telephone, while a Jewish boy riding his bicycle had a stone thrown at his head by a woman wearing a niqab.

More than a dozen incidents reported to the CST have involved social media.

On July 11, a Twitter user called “Samet” posted an inflammatory message referring to an area of London with a large ultra-Orthodox Jewish community.

“I say we go bomb Stamford Hill up just so the Jews feel the pain,” he tweeted.

His account has since been suspended.

Last Saturday, at a pro- Palestinian demonstration in central London, a man carried a placard which read: “Save Gaza! Hitler you were right!”

The hashtags “Hitler- WasRight” and “HitlerDidNothingWrong” have also been widely used on Twitter. At another recent march in central London, protesters confronted a Jewish woman who was with her two young children and told them: “Burn in hell.”
