The War on Britain’s Jews

153

A 50 minute Channel 4 documentary from 2007, the Daily Mail columnist Richard Littlejohn explores the growing problem of antisemitism in the United Kingdom following the publication of the Report of the All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into Antisemitism by the British parliament in 2006. The film details a rise in violence and intimidation directed against Jews in Britain, as well as the desecration of Jewish graves with Nazi slogans and damage to other property.

Littlejohn meets with members of the Jewish community in the city of Manchester, which has the second largest Jewish population in the UK after London, and is shown the drastic security measures that have been put in place at a predominantly Jewish school. Also worth a watch is the 2003 Channel 4 documentary Blaming the Jews.
