UK Anti-Semitism Currently "Obsessive"

The Jerusalem Post reports that, according to a British anti-Semitism expert and others, the UK has become more anti-Semitic.

An official from the British embassy in Tel Aviv is quoted in the article saying that

anti-Semitism in the UK is "obviously still a problem" and that it is "an issue that is very, very important to the British government."

Although the reasons for the shift in British attitudes are no doubt complex, the U.S. Department of State "Report on Global Anti-Semitism" suggests that the European press may shoulder some of the blame:

Also troubling is a bias that spills over into anti-Semitism in some of the left-of-center press and among some intellectuals.

That brings to mind the British Guardian's recent disingenuous attacks against the Jews of South Africa and against Israel as a whole.
