Hate crime is abhorrent whatever the circumstances.
Whether it is the recent bout of antisemitism following the Gaza crisis or the attacks on Muslims after 9/11, crime based on prejudice must be dealt with robustly and clearly.
The incidence of antisemitic attacks in Britain in recent weeks has been disturbing and shocking.
The scale has been unacceptable.
It is worrying that the government has paid so little attention to the problem.
