Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has reacted to the Community Security Trust’s annual Incidents Report which shows that a record number of incidents took place in 2021.
Marie said: “The CST’s report incontrovertibly shows that 2021’s surge of antisemitism was linked to reactions to the escalation of violence between Gaza and Israel in May 2021.
“Those who traffic in incendiary rhetoric, conspiracism and demonisation campaigns against the world’s only Jewish-majority state need to reflect on how they give succour to antisemites and create and foster a hostile environment for British Jews.”
