Wales tops anti-Semitic Google searches

There are about 170,000 anti-Semitic Google searches in the UK each year, but CST did not include a baseline figure against which these averages were measured. Dr Rich, CST’s head of policy, said: “It’s hard to speculate about why it may have been higher in Wales – it could be because the Jewish communities are smaller so there’s perhaps more ignorance – a lot of racism is based on ignorance.” Hidden hate: what Google searches tell us about antisemitism today was compiled by Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, a former data scientist at Google, for the CST and Antisemitism Policy Trust.
