"What this piece really misses though is the relative strength of anti-semitism. Anti-Muslim feelings and attacks/desecrations are FAR more regular in London, especially since July." Consider the obvious. The vast majority of Muslims in London are Asian and a whole lot more visible than Jews. There are also twice as many Muslims as Jews nithe London area. The vast majority of Jews are not Ultra orthodox and dressed in the associated garb. Nor do many wear Kippas. So, in summary, its far easier to spot a Muslim than a Jew. So, far easier to attack a Muslim or verbally abuse one. Clearly Islamaphobia is a bigger and more prevalent issue than anti-semitism. But due to the above factors its bound to be so.
