ADL finds anti-Semites in Europe

JTA logoA SURVEY of five European countries found that 21 percent of respondents hold strongly anti-Semitic views.

Released Thursday at the Anti-Defamation League's Conference on Global Anti-Semitism in New York, the survey covered Austria, Italy, Holland, Spain and Switzerland.

Among the findings,

  • 56 percent of respondents believe Jews are more loyal to Israel than to their home countries, and
  • 40 percent -- rising to 71 percent in Spain -- believe Jews have too much power in international financial markets.

"For the first time since 1945, I am scared" for the Jewish people, keynote speaker Elie Wiesel (above) told JTA. Wiesel told the roomful of diplomats and international Jewish leaders that the disasters of the Jewish people stemmed from having too few friends.
