More British Jews considering move abroad as anti-Semitism fears grow

'Almost one in three British Jews has considered moving abroad in the past two years, a survey has found.

One in six British Jews (17%) reported feeling unwelcome in Britain and over a third (37%) said they had felt the need to conceal their Judaism in public.

The findings come from a large-scale study by the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism which surveyed nearly 4,000 members of the community during 2016 and 2017.

They found that 31% of British Jews had considered moving abroad, a rise from 28% during their last survey two years ago.

Some 65% of respondents said they believed the Government was not doing enough to protect them, and over four-fifths feel the Labour party is too tolerant of anti-Semitism.'

More here but not on the BBC whose institutional anti Israel narrative has done more than most to increase anti Semitism in the UK and whose support for the Labour Party despite its increasingly anti Semitic elements has had the same effect.
