Poll: One in three British Jews considers leaving the UK fearing hate crime

[Ed. – Jews are not — repeat not — a protected class so no one on the Left cares one iota about anti-Semitic attacks against them. Besides many of them support Israel, which is a ‘terrorist’ state.]

One in three British Jews have considered leaving the country because they no longer feel safe here.

And almost four in 10 say they hide their faith for fear of antisemitic attacks, a poll found.

The survey by YouGov shows that only 59 per cent of Britain’s 270,000 Jewish people feel welcome in the UK.

And three quarters believe the Labour Party harbours antisemites.

Since Jeremy Corbyn became leader two years ago he has had to fend off claims he is not doing enough to tackle discrimination.

A report by MPs last year said his party failed “consistently and effectively to deal with antisemitic incidents”.

Former London mayor Ken ­Livingstone was suspended from Labour over his claims that Adolf Hitler supported Zionism in the Thirties.

Last month police figures obtained under freedom of information laws showed a 45 per cent surge in hate crime against Jewish people.
