Nearly one-third of British Jews have considered leaving the country in the last two years over fear of anti-Semitism, according to a poll by YouGov for the Campaign Against anti-Semitism (CAA), which was published on Sunday.
The multiyear reseach found that 31 percent of British Jews considered immigration at least once in the past two years—a three percent increase from 2015.
The anti-Semitism Barometer research was conducted between 2015-2017 and surveyed 3,411 British Jews in 2015, 1,660 in 2016, and 1,614 in 2017.
The poll also found that 17 percent of Jews—about one in six—feel unwelcome in Britain, while 37 percent feel they need to hide their ethnicity in public.
Sixty-five percent of British Jews said the British government did not do enough to protect them, and only 39 percent felt confident anti-Semitic hate crime would be prosecuted.
Meanwhile, more than 80 percent agreed that the Labour Party was too tolerant of anti-Semitism.
The Labour Party has been embroiled in a series of anti-Semitic scandals in recent years, and its chairman Jeremy Corbyn, a prominent pro-Palestinian activist, has been accused of being too tolerant of anti-Semitism.
Meanwhile, a Sky News poll found that anti-Semitic views in Britain were actually on the decline.
The poll examined how many respondents agreed with seven anti-Semitic statements. The number of people who agreed with at least one statement among the seven dropped from 45 percent in 2015 to 36 percent this year.
