In the United Kingdom the number of antisemitic incidents doubled between 2013 and 2014, and peaked in 2017 at 1,382. In terms of where antisemitic attacks happened, over half of these offences occurred in London, while a further 261 happened in Greater Manchester. The vast majority of these antisemetic incidents were classed as being general abusive behavior, and 365 were aimed at individuals in public.
There is an undeniable political element to these attacks which is reflected in the figures recorded by the German police, with 1,412 antisemitic offences classified as being right-wing crime. On the other side of the political spectrum, antisemitic trends within the UK Labour Party were given as a reason for the departure of several MPs in early 2019. In France, 59 percent of people thought that antisemitism in politics was a problem in their country, with 74 percent of French respondents also identifying social media as contributing to the rise in antisemitism.
