Study finds anti-Semitic attitudes in Britain highest among Muslims and “very right-wing”

The findings of a new in-depth study into anti-Semitism were released this week. The results showed that the highest percentages of anti-Semitism were found in British Muslims and those who identified as “very right-wing.”

The general population of Britain showed that just 2.4% of the British public expressed multiple anti-Semitic attitudes “readily and confidently”. Around 30% of the public agreed with at least one question that would be deemed as anti-Semitic. The study notes that the United Kingdom has one of the lowest levels of anti-Semitism in the world. However, there is clearly more work to be done.

A bomb hoax at Brighton's Grand Hotel on Sunday forced Dan and Gaby Rosehill and their 218 wedding guests to evacuate and take refuge at a neighbouring hotel.

Despite the evacuation, the make-shift Jewish ceremony went ahead. Gaby said, "I could hear the guests all cheering. My bridesmaids danced down the aisle, I was really emotional, both in shock and just in the beauty and true romance of it all. It’s a funny story to look back on, and we still had an amazing time.”
