Reported antisemitic incidents on campuses at record high

The number of reported antisemitic incidents on university campuses in the United Kingdom spiked significantly this academic year, with an increase of 59% over the previous year’s figures, writes Jeremy Sharon for The Jerusalem Post.

The Community Security Trust (CST), which monitors and works to combat antisemitism in the UK, recorded 111 university-related antisemitic incidents, compared with 70 in the 2019-20 academic year. This figure represents a record high for antisemitic incidents on university campuses since the CST began tracking this specific number in 2002.

The organisation attributed the increase to the massive wave of antisemitic incidents recorded during and in the wake of Israel’s war with Hamas in May.
