UK Jews far more likely than Muslims to be victims of hatred

From UK Jews Far More Likely than Muslims to Be Victims of Faith Hatred:

One in 400 Jews compared to one in 1,700 Muslims are likely to be victims of "faith hate" attacks, according to figures compiled by UK police. In London and Manchester, where Muslims outnumber Jews by four to one, anti-Semitic offenses exceeded anti-Muslim offenses. The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) reported this month that not a single person accused of an anti-Semitic crime had been prosecuted on a charge of religiously aggravated offending.
