Rishi Sunak denounces ‘disgusting increase’ in anti-Semitic acts in UK


It is with some concern that the head of the British government denounced an increase in anti-Semitic acts in the country, after the Hamas terrorist attacks against Israel. From Sweden, where he is attending a defense meeting with his Baltic allies, Rishi Sunak said he had observed “a frankly disgusting increase” in anti-Semitic acts “in recent days”.

Three million pounds sterling released
A message which follows the funds released the day before for the security of the Jewish community in the United Kingdom. An additional funding of 3 million pounds sterling (3.5 million euros) will be provided to the organization responsible for protecting the security of the Jewish community, specifies Downing Street. Which “brings the total funding for the Jewish Community Protection and Security Grant to £18 million for 2023-24,” according to the statement.

In total, 139 anti-Semitic acts were recorded in just four days, five times more than last year over the same period. In London alone, suspected anti-Semitic offenses have increased six-fold compared to the same period last year. Between September 30 and October 13 of this year, 75 anti-Semitic acts were recorded, according to police cited by the Guardian.

At the same time, a 22-year-old young woman, suspected of supporting Hamas, an organization classified as terrorist and banned in the United Kingdom, was arrested on October 13 after a demonstration five days earlier in Brighton, in the south of England.
