I was somewhat nonplussed by this headline on the BBC web site today

A charity set up to protect Britain’s Jewish community has recorded its highest-ever monthly total of anti-semitic incidents.
The Community Security Trust (CST) said it was aware of 302 such events in July, compared to 59 in July 2013.
So, even more disturbing than the headline suggested. Peaks have two sides, and you don’t know when the peak was until you’ve passed it.
