Explicit prejudice or hostility towards or about Jews, simply for being Jewish, is rarely voiced in British public life; but the expression and transmission of antisemitic attitudes about “Zionists” or Israel, including conspiracy theories and the abuse of Holocaust memory, are more common, and on occasion were even defended as a legitimate part of mainstream politics during 2017.

    On Shabbat, the world recoiled in horror at the murder of 11 Jews during a brit milah ceremony at the Tree of Life Or L’Simcha synagogue in Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh. The suspect, Robert Bowers, attacked the synagogue with three handguns and an assault rifle and allegedly shouted: “all Jews must die.” Upon arrest, he told law enforcement officers that Jews “are committing genocide to my people.
