Reported anti-Semitic hate incidents in the United Kingdom hit a record high in 2018, with more than 100 recorded in every month of the year, according to the Community Security Trust (CST), a charity that fights anti-Semitism.
The total for 2018 -- 1,652 incidents reported nationwide -- was a 16% increase on the previous year, and represented a record annual total for a third year running, according to the CST report. CST has been recording Anti-Semitic incidents since 1984.
Last year was the first time that more than 100 incidents had been recorded in every month of a calendar year but the figures can be seen as part of a trend since January 2016, CST said in a media release accompanying the report.
