Anti-Semitic Europe (AND ITALY)

ADL Survey in 12 European Countries Finds Anti-Semitic Attitudes Still Strongly Held

I have to say I'm not surprised at all by the result of this survey, especially after reading "I soliti ebrei. Viaggio nel pregiudizio antiebraico nell'Italia di oggi" by Daniele Scalise.

In responding "probably true" to the statement, "Jews are more loyal to Israel than their own country," the 2005 survey found:

Austria - 38%, down from 46%
Belgium – 41%, down from 46%
Denmark - 43% up from 37%
France – 29%, up from 28%
Germany – 50%, no change
Italy – 55%, down from 57% <----------
The Netherlands – 36%, down from 44%
Spain - 51%, up from 48%
Switzerland - 38%, down from 46%
The United Kingdom – 38% down from 40%
Hungary – 38%
Poland – 52%

In responding "probably true" to the statement, "Jews have too much power in the business world," the 2005 survey found:

Austria – 24%, down from 25% in 2004
Belgium – 33%, down from 37%
Denmark - 11% up from 9%
France – 25%, down from 33%
Germany – 20%, down from 24%
Italy – 33%, up from 29% <----------
The Netherlands – 18% no change
Spain – 45%, down from 47%
Switzerland – 26%, down from 35%
The United Kingdom – 14% down from 20%
Hungary – 55%
Poland – 43%

In responding "probably true" to the statement "Jews have too much power in international financial markets," the 2005 survey found:

Austria – 33%, down from 36% in 2004
Belgium – 33%, down from 36%
Denmark - 21% up from 18%
France – 24%, down from 29%
Germany – 24%, down from 27%

Spain – 54%, up from 53%
Switzerland – 30%, down from 38%
The United Kingdom – 16% down from 18%

In responding "probably true" to the statement "Jews still talk too much about what happened to them in the Holocaust," the 2005 survey found:

Austria – 46%, down from 54% in 2004
Belgium – 41%, up from 40%
Denmark - 35% up from 29%
France – 34%, down from 35%
Germany – 48%, down from 56%

Spain – 46%, up from 41%
Switzerland – 48%, down from 49%
The United Kingdom – 28% down from 31%

Poland – 52%


And:


A plurality of those surveyed across Europe, 43 percent, believe that Jews are more loyal to Israel than to their own country, with a majority of respondents in Italy, Germany, Poland and Spain saying they believe that this statement is "probably true."

• Alarmingly high levels of those surveyed across Europe still believe in the traditional anti-Jewish canard that "Jews have too much power in the business world." Overall, nearly 30 percent of all respondents believe this stereotype to be true.

• Similarly, European respondents still adhere to the notion that "Jews have too much power in international financial markets." Overall, 32 percent of those surveyed cling to the traditional stereotype.

• Large portions of the European public continue to believe that Jews still talk too much about what happened to them in the Holocaust. Overall, 42 percent of those surveyed believe it is "probably true." In fact, a plurality of respondents in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Spain and Switzerland believe this notion to be true.

• Overall, 20 percent of those surveyed across Europe continue to blame Jews for the death of Jesus.
• Overall, 29 percent of those surveyed across Europe say that their opinion of Jews is influenced by the actions taken by the State of Israel.
• Of those respondents whose opinions are influenced, a majority, 53 percent, say that their opinion of Jews is worse as a result of the actions taken by Israel.
