Yesterday we saw a horrendous attack on a Synagogue in San Diego in which Lori Kaye (BDE) was senselessly murdered by a gunman and 3 others wounded. This is not the first nor sadly will it be the last attack on one of our places of worship.
Shortly before y'days attack in San Diego @NudderingNudnik wrote a thread about a credible risk to his own shul here in the UK that was considered of such seriousness that the police felt the need for a high profile presence during the Shabbat service.
You might be thinking these incidents happen in isolation or that the threat to us is minimal or exaggerated.

Sadly that might have been true a few years ago, it is not now!
The 'worlds oldest hate' is real, it is happening and it is growing and it must be stopped

It is affecting cities and towns, small and large, right across the U.K

No place is now immune to it and it is happening to our small community in the great city of #Brighton and #Hove
Two weeks ago a Labour council candidate in the Wish ward in Hove (a ward with a high number of Jewish residents) was suspended by the party after it was revealed in a national newspaper that she made numerous social media posts that weren’t deemed offensive to our community.
This was the response from one Labour member to the suspension of this candidate in a Labour supporting Facebook group.

Remember this candidate had been suspended for antisemitism:

“We need to march about this to the synagogue in Hove, all of us members!”
I have hidden that members identity because this thread is not about one idiot. It is about the ‘dinner party’ antisemitism permeating throughout our society that must be addressed & stopped before we see tragedy’s such as those in San Diego & Pittsburgh occurring here in the U.K
That is not to say the police are not aware of this person’s identity. They are and they are taking the treating the matter with the seriousness it deserves and we thank them for that.
Now imagine for a second that a different political party suspended a prospective council candidate for Islamophobia and the response to that from a member of that party was:

“We need to march about this to the Mosque, all of us members!”
There would, quite rightly, be outrage from all sides of the political spectrum. Sadly that was not the case here. It is not enough for us to just express our outrage and concern on social media nor can it come just from the Jewish community.
People need to stand up and publicly call out this new, 21st-century, pernicious, incarnation of antisemitism, no matter where it is seen before it is too late.
