In an administration in which racism has gone mainstream, it should be no surprise that Jewish minorities would be no exception. The last week of February saw 21 bomb threats to Jewish schools and community centres, alongside vandalism across the country, including the desecrations of Jewish cemeteries in St Louis, Philadelphia and Fort Wayne, Indiana.
When media changes, the world changes. We live in a world where the Pope and the President are on Twitter and Rabbis communicate on Facebook. We live today in a time, which some call the Fourth Industrial Revolution. A period which is distinct in the speed, scale and force at which it transforms production, distribution and consumption.
If we want meaningful integration in our diverse society, we must have it in our schools. All the available evidence supports this claim. It is a truth which should have led to significant reform of England's education system a very long time ago indeed. Instead, it has barely figured in education policy.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was such a day to commemorate the millions of black African victims of slavery? Unlike the "six million" figure that so often goes with statistic about the number of Jews killed during the Second World War, it's not so easy to quantify when it comes to black slaves.

Rather than turning this occasion into yet another gory battlefield of ideologies, the historical anguish should prompt us to work against the systems of collective hatred - beyond religious, ethnic and racial boundaries.
Theresa May said the UK has to "wipe out anti-Semitism". The BBC has now featured an article about Jews in the UK fearing for their safety, but unfortunately this doesn't surprise me at all. This new interest in British anti-Semitism stems largely from the attacks in France, and it's a shame that it took such a tragic event for Brits to begin to consider the problems here at home.
