The Heat: Anti-Semitism on the rise

The Heat

It was the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history. 

Eleven worshipers gunned down at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania last Saturday.

And the U.S. is not alone. Anti-Semitic hate crimes reached a record high in the United Kingdom last year. While Germany reported more than 1400 incidents over the same period.

It’s an alarming trend. Why is it happening? We’ll put that question to our panel. 

CGTN’s Jim Spellman has a report.
