Jewish students ‘living in fear’ at UK universities

A new poll has revealed profound concerns among British Jews over antisemitism at universities, with nine out of 10 saying it is a problem.

The survey, carried out by YouGov and King’s College London for the Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA), also found that almost eight in 10 felt “intimidated as a Jew” by the anti-Israel protests and convoys during the 2021 Gaza conflict.

The findings come amid surging anti-Israel activity on campuses, from the mobs that confronted Jerusalem ambassador Tzipi Hotovely on her recent visits to Cambridge and LSE, to the decision by Sheffield Hallam University to hire a lecturer who has publicly backed Palestinian terrorists.
