Prosecutions rose for religious hate crimes against British Jews. New figures released by the Crown Prosecution Service showed that five cases came to court between April 2003 and March 2004, and there had been just one such prosecution in 2002. But Jewish community leaders warned the figures were misleading because most anti-Semitic incidents — which have risen steeply in recent years — don’t result in arrests.
