This morning, Campaign Against Antisemitism and Jewish community and religious leaders were convened for an urgent meeting by Prime Minister Boris Johnson following a week of skyrocketing antisemitic crime on the streets of Britain.
A number of important matters were raised with the Prime Minister in relation to antisemitic hate crime witnessed over the past week in the form of Jew-hatred at rallies and vehicle convoys, as well as support for genocidal antisemitic terrorist organisations, criminal damage and assaults.
We are grateful to the Prime Minister for his solidarity with the Jewish community in the wake of horrendous antisemitism on our streets and on social media. We raised a number of matters relating to the surge in antisemitism with the Prime Minister.
In addition to Campaign Against Antisemitism, which was represented by Gideon Falter, those invited included the Chief Rabbi and representatives of the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations, Reform Judaism, the Jewish Leadership Council, the Community Security Trust, the Board or Deputies. The Prime Minister was joined by his Chief of Staff and the Government’s Independent Adviser on Antisemitism.
