Holocaust survivors had their home ransacked and sprayed with graffiti in one of a record number of antisemitic incidents reported in the UK.

The Community Security Trust (CST) said the elderly couple returned from holiday in April to find the house “ransacked and desecrated” with “c* Jews” scrawled in large letters across their living room wall.

Other incidents saw Jewish victims punched, kicked or pelted with stones, bottles and eggs, while swastikas and slogans including “gas the Jews” were sprayed on buildings.

The CST, which monitors antisemitism and provides security for Jewish communities, recorded a total of 892 incidents in the first six months of this year – a 10 per cent increase on last year and a new record.

It named discussions around antisemitism in the Labour Party

Corbyn must go and be replaced by a leader who cares about the party and society.

The denials have become ridiculous with even many Labour supporters giving up their support for the party.

Corbyn will never defend attacks on the Jews or anything Jewish.

It’s disgusting. Difficult to believe it could be happening in this modern age. Racist attacks have increased locally following the referendum and anti-semitism increasing even within the Labour Party. What’s the world coming to.

Right wing false news, why are you people so gullible , anything you throw at Labour is strengthening their resolve.
Britain is not working under the Tories, and that’s a fact.( now where have I heard something like this before )

But even Labour admit its not false news. Even Corbyn accepts this is happening within the Labour Party. He has made statements on this issue as have many staunch Labour supporters.
It most definitely is not false news.

Not quite as bad as the Islamophobia that the Tory’s hide behind though, now that is disgraceful.

NoSaint, Yours is about the worst piece of anti-Corbyn diatribe ive ever read or want to read.

if that is true it would be disgraceful and I would certainly speak out against it but I think you just made it up. I don’t think any other party would ignore a problem as serious as in Labour today.

Hierophant, And so the hate against Corbyn continues. This is how Nazi Germany started against the Jews. Disgusting.

LutonLady , But to tie it in with Jeremy Corbyn. This is the point.

I think Luton Lady is fair and the evidence shows it to be true. Just as Brexit created racist violence the Labour party’s anti-semitism has led to more attacks on Jews.

Wow, an interesting if rather scary take on things Michael - portraying Corbyn as the victim in all of this...

Corbyn is showing how weak he is as a leader.

That is quite obvious. Two men who look after number one. The anti-semitism in the Labour Party needs to be sorted out for the sake of all the Labour members who have remained loyal.

Corbyn and his cronies have wrecked everything Labour stood for to pursue their own extreme left, terrorist hugging agenda.

Labour plunged into chaos as veteran MP John Mann QUITS to become government's anti-Semitism tsar - and says he will 'NEVER forgive' Jeremy Corbyn for 'letting anti-Semites hijack the party'

Every time I go into a meeting with a group of Jewish people, I wince when they raise the issue of the Labour Party and Corbyn.

'It is impossible to overstate the anger that I have about that. He has not just hijacked my political party - he has hijacked its soul and its ethics. I will never forgive him for that.'

It won’t go away while Corbyn turns a blind eye.
