LONDON, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- Anti-Semitic attacks have become so widespread in Britain that a parliamentary inquiry is set to declare them endemic.
Recent attacks on British Jews and vandalism of area synagogues due to Israel's conflict with Hezbollah in Lebanon were detailed in a recent all-party parliamentary meeting, which will call for immediate action to be taken, the Times of London reported.
"It is usually a small number responsible for a large number of attacks, but these were very widespread across the country and included graffiti attacks on synagogues in Edinburgh and Glasgow," said Mark Gardner of the Community Security Trust.
In July, 92 anti-Semitic incidents occurred -- the third-highest amount in a month for Britain. Many officials said the ongoing violence in Lebanon is the trigger to such occurrences.
"The problem is the spin that Israel is an irredeemably evil regime, and we are concerned that it may become common currency to connect British Jews with this," Board of Deputies member Jon Benjamin told the Times.
