An estimated 1.09bn adults have antisemitic views, new research has suggested.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a Jewish nongovernmental organisation, surveyed over 50,000 adults from 102 countries and territories to produce the ADL Global 100 report.
They judged that 26% of those surveyed had antisemitic attitudes, which the group estimates represents 1.09bn people worldwide.
Those taking part were asked to respond to 11 stereotypes about Jewish people. To be classified as holding antisemitic attitudes, respondents had to agree with at least six of the statements listed below.
Jews are more loyal to Israel than to [this country/the countries they live in]
Jews have too much power in international financial markets
Jews have too much control over global affairs
Jews think they are better than other people
Jews have too much control over the global media
Jews are responsible for most of the world's wars
Jews have too much power in the business world
Jews don't care what happens to anyone but their own kind
People hate Jews because of the way Jews behave
Jews have too much control over the United States government
Jews still talk too much about what happened to them in the HolocaustSource: Guardian
Note the absurdity of this definition of antisemitism. If you think that "People hate Jews because of the way Jews behave" you are "antisemitic". In other words, if you think that human behaviour is rationally explicable, if you think that actions cause reactions in somewhat predictable patterns, it means you are motivated by irrational hatred. How crazy is that? The notion of antisemitism implicitly evokes the supernatural. It corrosively undermines our rational, scientific, indeed European, perspective on the world. Why are Jews disliked or persecuted? "Well, they just are. There's no reason. It's fated. It's an ancient evil", say the Jews. The concept is grounded in the myth of Jews being a "Chosen People". Through the centuries, Jews told themselves that they were being persecuted for having disregarded the instructions of the invisible magical being they believed had created and "chosen" them. The fable of "antisemitism", in its modern form, is no more than a thinly disguised secular variation of this story.
As I have observed before, the key distinguishing feature of Oriental discourse (both Jewish and Muslim) is its disregard for objective truth. And I believe the passion for objective truth, the aspiration towards an understanding of it, to be the defining characteristic of European civilisation. The Jewish contempt for objective truth is apparent in this list of statements. There is no attempt to evaluate whether any of the statements could be true, that is whether Jewish power or influence is indeed disproportionate to their numbers. Clearly it is. The average IQ of Ashkenazi Jews is 112-115. Any group with an average IQ that high is going to have influence disproportionate to their numbers You would expect them to excel in any field that correlates with intelligence.
I would agree with all of the propositions except "Jews are responsible for most of the world's wars" and could only agree to "Jews are more loyal to Israel than to [this country/the countries they live in]" with some qualifications.
It's notable that Greece came out as the most "antisemitic country in Europe".
A worldwide survey of anti-Semitic views released by a leading Jewish organisation has found that Greece is the most anti-Semitic country in Europe.
Greece, the cradle of democracy, recorded a result in the Anti-Defamation League poll of 69% of respondents saying they were anti-Semitic. The result, which the league called disturbing, put Greece near the level as many Middle East and North African countries, which had the highest concentration of respondents with anti-Semitic views - 74%.
Greece's anti-Semitic proportion was significantly higher than that of Iran, which scored 56% and was at the bottom of Middle East-North Africa countries for anti-Semitic feeling.Source
Why is this? Obviously because the Greeks have just observed the global community of Jewry demand and obtain the take-down of the third-largest political party in the country, Golden Dawn. The Greeks have seen Jewish power in action. They know it's not a myth.
Also noteworthy is that Sweden rated among the lowest countries in the world for "antisemitism", lower than the US. But that doesn't stop American Jews, including those involved in the CounterJewhad movement, from routinely insulting Swedes as basely antisemitic and therefore deserving to have their country swamped by Mohammedans or even advancing the preposterous conspiracy theory that Swedes are deliberately letting their country be flooded by Muslims as a way of indirectly bashing Jews.
Meanwhile, Jews are inserting full-page adverts like this in the Wall Street Journal to try and divide Americans of European descent from their ancestral kin groups.
