Attacks on Jews up sixfold

Remember the warnings from police and Muslim community groups issued nanoseconds after each terror attack, that law abiding Muslim citizens must not be targetted for revenge attacks?

Well, they're not.

But Jews are.

Australian Jews keep count of anti-Semitic incidents, month by month, state by state. Jeremy Jones, the longstanding record-keeper and immediate past president of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry, says the usual monthly average is about 25. In July he received 141 written reports of attacks, and they’re not all in yet.

Jewish students at Sydney University, who identify their faith with religious skullcaps, have been attacked and have been forced to cover their heads with baseball caps as a result reports the Telegraph.

Update - and now it's happening in the U.K.
