Antisemitism Rises Online in UK
Antisemitic incidents in the United Kingdom have dropped by 13% in 2020 compared to the year before, this is likely due to COVID-19 lockdown regulations. However, the 789 events reported between January and June still represent the third highest number on record for that period. This according to a study by a British watchdog group.
Even with coronavirus keeping everyone locked up and indoors, Jew hatred continues to spread. While the number of antisemitic incidents went down, the report actually revealed that a number of online cases went up 4%. History has proven that Jewish people often become the scapegoat for economic crises, pandemics, and really any disaster. The Apostle Paul calls the church not to be arrogant against the Jewish people, but to fear. Why? Because harming Jewish people is like poking the eye of God.
