UK anti-Semitism hit record level in 2014, report says per BBC News

The BBC manage to report the rise in anti-Semitism in the UK but of course don't mention Muslims even once. 

There's a clue when the BBC report:
'It said almost half the offenders made reference to Gaza or Palestinians.'
But then that could apply to some BBC journalists as much as any anti-Semites.

In any case:
'However, it said the number of incidents had already risen significantly in the first six months of the year, before the summer's conflict.'
The BBC do find the space to report:
'one far-right activist said he was planning a protest there next month - against "Jewification", according to a poster he put on Facebook.'
The BBC are still desperate to suggest that anti-Semitic attacks and sentiment are the fault of the right-wing, and just as desperate to absolve any part of Britain's Muslim population from any part in this. 

The BBC also manage not to look at factors that might be increasing anti-Semitism in the UK. Factors such as the BBC's regular vilification of Israel.
