En meningsmåling i sju europeiske land viser at hver tredje europeer mener jødene har skyld i finanskrisen.
The poll included interviews with 3,500 people – 500 each in Austria, Britain, France, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Spain.
It says that in Spain, 74 percent of those asked say they feel it is «probably true» that Jews hold too much sway over the global financial markets. That is the highest percentage in the survey.
Nearly two-thirds of Spanish respondents said Jews were more loyal to Israel than they were to their home countries.
«This poll confirms that anti-Semitism remains alive and well in the minds of many Europeans,» said Abraham H. Foxman, the ADL’s national director in America. «Clearly, age old anti-Semitic stereotypes die hard.»
In total, about 40 percent of those questioned said Jews have too much power in the business world, including more than half of Hungarian, Spanish and Polish respondents. And 44 percent said they believe it is «probably true» that Jews still talk too much about the Holocaust.
