Holdningen til jøder er blitt mer negativ i et antall europeiske land, blant dem Spania, Polen og Russland. Holdningen til muslimer er gjennomgående blitt enda mer negativ.
The Washington-based Pew Research Center’s global attitude survey found that 46 percent of Spanish, 36 percent of Poles and 34 percent of Russians viewed Jews unfavorably, while the same was true for 25 percent of Germans, and 20 percent of French.
I muslimske land er holdningen langt mer negativ til jøder. Her er antallet som ser positivt på jøder under 10 prosent.
The most extreme anti-Jewish feelings, the poll said, were found in predominantly Muslim nations, where favorable attitudes were only in the single digits among Turks, Egyptians, Jordanians, Lebanese, and Pakistanis.
