Not the whole story?

The BBC are "reporting" that
"There was a 9% rise in anti-Semitic incidents in the UK in the first half of 2008 compared with the same period last year, a charity has reported.

There were 266 incidents up to June, compared with 244 last year, according to the Community Security Trust (CST)."
This article is illustrated with a photo of a swastika painted underneath a Star of David. Now I cannot find the CST report for the first six months of 2008 on their website but I did find their report for the year of 2007. In that year there seems to have been a fairly high number of anti-semitic attacks by those of an Asian, Arab or black appearance. This sort of information is of course not allowed to be reported on the BBC in case it damages Community Cohesion. Community cohesion being a phrase used to describe the way that some minority groups receive special treatment so as to try and stop some of their communities from killing members of other communities.
