University students quit after 'toxic' antisemitism in Edinburgh
Anti-Israel incidents at Scottish universities have contributed to Jewish students quitting their courses in despair, it was claimed this week.
Attacks have created a "toxic atmosphere" in which Jewish students no longer feel comfortable, a delegation of community representatives told senior Edinburgh University officials.
Among those who felt the need to leave was a former Edinburgh Jewish Society chair who dropped out of his course to study abroad, partly because of the fall-out from an incident in which Ishmael Khaldi, the Israeli Foreign Ministry's most senior Muslim diplomat, was mobbed as he spoke at the university in February last year.
