One in Four Europeans Holds Anti-Semitic Views, Survey Shows

Sharp rise in Eastern Europe since 2015

In Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain, more than 40% of respondents stated that Jews were more loyal to Israel than to their own countries.

Nearly one in four, 24.6%, of Europeans holds strongly anti-Semitic views, according to a poll by a Jewish anti-hate organization released Thursday.

Among European Muslims in Western Europe, the incidence of such views was almost three times higher than in the general population, as defined by the Anti-Defamation League’s study.

A significant proportion of those surveyed agreed with statements that said Jews were more loyal to Israel than to their own country, Jews talked too much about the Holocaust, and Jews had too much power in business and finance. The study comprises an index of 11 questions that are used to identify anti-Semitic attitudes.

“It is deeply concerning that approximately one in four Europeans harbor the types of anti-Semitic beliefs that have endured since before the Holocaust,” said Jonathan A. Greenblatt, the League’s chief executive.

“These findings serve as a powerful wake-up call that much work remains to be done to educate broad swaths of the populations in many of these countries to reject bigotry, in addition to addressing the pressing security needs where violent incidents are rising,” he said.
