Manchester: Where anti-Jewish hatred is normal

    Pupils at Manchester's King David Schools regard antisemitic abuse, hurled at them on their way to and from school, as an everyday occurrence, it was claimed this week.

    Delegates at Manchester's Jewish Representative Council devoted the monthly council meeting on Sunday to discussing strategies to deal with the high level of anti-Jewish racism in the city.

    Community Security Trust figures show that Manchester was the site of more than a third of incidents reported nationally last year - the highest recorded proportion for the region.

    When delegates split into workshops to hammer out responses to antisemitism - including improving reporting of incidents - one delegate, Harry Lesser, reported: "We heard particularly with regret the experiences of antisemitism directed at King David children going to school. Many regard it as normal, which we found particularly disturbing."

    The Rep Council vice-president, Michael Samuels, said he had witnessed too much communal apathy in dealing with the issue.
