Britain saw record levels of anti-Semitism during Israel’s war with Hamas in Gaza, a Jewish watchdog group said.

In July 2014, the Community Security Trust, or CST, recorded 302 incidents — the highest ever monthly total documented by the group since it started monitoring anti-Semitism in the United Kingdom in 1984, CST wrote Thursday on its blog.The figure constitutes a rise of over 400 percent from the 59 incidents recorded in July 2013 and only slightly fewer than the 304 incidents recorded in the entire first six months of 2014, CST said.
