UK: Quarter of Jewish students 'fear anti-Semitic attacks on campus'

Via Independent:
More than a quarter of Jewish students are living in fear of an anti-Semitic attack, a new report has found.

Published by the National Union of Students (NUS), the study found 26 per cent of Jews in further or higher education were either fairly worried or very worried about being subjected to a physical attack, property damage,verbal abuse or theft as a result of their religion.

Almost two-thirds of Jewish students had not been the victim of crime at their place of study.

Two-thirds thought the union would not respond appropriately to allegations of anti-Semitism.
