    Ingrid. Yes there is some truth in what you say regarding to exposure to anti-semitism (bit of a misnomer, really, beacause surely Arabs are also semites, as in descendants of Shem). As someone from a Caribbean and British backgound living in the UK, I know more than most about the extents and limitations of prejudice in the UK. However, I also know that the majority of Brits abhor prejudice including prejudice towards Jewish people and/or the nation of Israel. The same instincts that caused Britain to revile Naziism, and reject extremism in all its forms for centuries still exist in this country. Although there has been an increase in anti-semitism in recent years, it certainly hasn't risen to the point where Brits as a whole are anti-semitic, even tacitly. If the two nations are allies, surely it is legitimate that questions should be asked if it is suspected that one nation has trodden upon the other's toes.
