As if to echo me..

In the UK, Anti-Semitic attacks have "soared" since Lebanon:

BRITISH Jews are facing a wave of anti-Semitic attacks prompted by Israel’s conflict with Hezbollah in Lebanon. Synagogues have been daubed with graffiti, Jewish leaders have had hate-mail and ordinary people have been subjected to insults and vandalism.

On Thursday an all-party parliamentary inquiry will state that anti-Semitic violence has become endemic in Britain, both on the streets and university campuses. The report will call for urgent action from the Government, the police and educational establishments.

According to the article, this has been the third-worst month since recording began in 1984. Also, while attacks are normally grouped, these have been spread out over the entire country. At least the Brits are honest about it.
