Germany: Group of experts report on the problem of antisemitism
The Independent group of experts on anti-Semitism calls for a greater struggle against antisemitism in Germany.
According to the report, last year 40% of German residents held antisemitic views linked to Israel. Two years earlier, only 28% of respondents agreed with this statement: "With the policy Israel is taking, it is understandable why we have something against Jews." 27% claimed: "What the State of Israel is doing to the Palestinians today is in fact no different from what the Nazis did in the Third Reich to the Jews."
6% of Germany's population is infected with "classic antisemitism": They believe that the influence of the Jews is too great or that they themselves are guilty of being persecuted.
