‘Anti-Semitism up, Islamophobia down” a New Academic Research Says


December 9, 2009 - ....As much as Israel uses every possible means to drag us all into an endless war against Islam, the Europeans are coming to terms with the devastating reality of Zionist murderous brutality. Some 45.7% of the Europeans either "somewhat or strongly" agree that "Israel is conducting a war of extermination against the Palestinians." In case someone fails to understand the meaning of it all, I will say it plainly: almost half of the Europeans accept that Israel employs genocidal tactics.

‘Anti-Semitism up, Islamophobia down” a New Academic Research Says

Gilad Atzmon

December 9, 2009

One-quarter of Europeans  believe that "Jews have too much influence"

31% agree that "Jews in general do not care about anything or anyone but their own kind."

 45.7% of the Europeans somewhat or strongly agree that "Israel is conducting a war of extermination against the Palestinians."

 About 37.4% agree with the following statement: "Considering Israel’s policy, I can understand why people do not like Jews."

 

Introduction by Gilad Atzmon

According to new research conducted by Bielefeld University hatred towards Muslims decreased over the past year while hatred of Jews is growing. Israelis must be concerned. The sudden drop in European Islamophobia doesn’t fit into the Zionist global plan in which Muslims are cornered and ostracised as reactionaries while Israel is dropping bombs in the name of democracy and liberalism. According to the leading Israeli paper Ynet, "the level of resentment against most minorities declined – sexism considerably, Islamophobia slightly. There were only two exceptions: homophobia and anti-Semitism."(1)

Interestingly enough Ynet reports that "the percentage of people who believe 'that there are too many Muslims’ in their country is especially high in those countries that actually have a low percentage of Muslims living in them." One possible explanation may that within European countries benefiting from a large Muslim population, the fear of Islam is actually dissipating. This is not at all surprising given the fact that both Islamic and Christian cultures share very similar universal values and ethical precepts. Unlike Jewish ideology that maintains a certain level of tribal, cultural and social segregation and supremacy, Muslim communities seem to collectively merge into the working classes through the work place, education and economy.

Jewish Power

According to the research very many Europeans are concerned with Jewish domination and power. "One-quarter of Europeans (24.5%) believe that "Jews have too much influence", and nearly one-third (31%) agree that "Jews in general do not care about anything or anyone but their own kind." Bearing in mind the embarrassing fact that 50% of MPs in Britain's shadow cabinet are Conservative Friends of Israel we can safely assume that, unlike our politicians, the voters out there are largely waking up to the danger of Zionist infiltration.

Ynet also has some 'good news’ to report. "61.9% say that Jews "enrich our culture", especially in the Netherlands, Britain and Germany." The fact that Jews and ex Jews (in particular) enrich European life is indeed hard to ignore, yet setting aside Lord Cashpoint Levy and Uri 'Spoon Bending’ Geller, it seems as if, amongst those Jews who contribute to European cultural life, not many openly identify with Israel and its crimes.

As much as Israel uses every possible means to drag us all into an endless war against Islam, the Europeans are coming to terms with the devastating reality of Zionist murderous brutality. Some 45.7% of the Europeans either "somewhat or strongly" agree that "Israel is conducting a war of extermination against the Palestinians." In case someone fails to understand the meaning of it all, I will say it plainly: almost half of the Europeans accept that Israel employs genocidal tactics. They basically agree that Israelis are the Nazis of our time. According to Ynet, about 37.4% agree with the following statement: "Considering Israel’s policy, I can understand why people do not like Jews."

Zionism was there to create a civilized loveable Jew. Not only has it failed, thanks to Israel and Zionism, the resentment towards Jews seem to be greater than ever. The meaning of it all is rather obvious. Israel and its supporting lobbies failed to internalise the real universal meaning of the Holocaust: 'love thy neighbour’. Instead of ethnic cleansing, starving and dropping white phosphorous, Israel should have learned to live  amongst others.

If Europe is as democratic as it claims to be, this clear, escalating  animosity towards Israel, Zionism and their relentless lobbies will mature eventually  into a political shift.

 

 

(1) A clarification is needed here: 'anti-Semitism’ is a misleading notion. When people refer to 'anti Semitism’ what they really mean is 'anti Jewish feelings’. The notion of  'anti-Semitism’  is there to give a false impression that Jews are a racial group. The truth of the matter is obvious, Jews are neither a race nor have they established a racial continuum. In fact no one resents Jews for their racial belonging or  ethnicity. Anti Jewish feelings is in most cases a political and ethical reaction to Jewish tribal politics, Zionism, Israel, Israeli lobbying, global Zionist affairs, Jewish ideology, Jewish supremacy, Israeli war crimes and so on.

 

Europe: Anti-Semitism up, Islamophobia down by Sarah Stricker

Study on 'group-focused enmity' conducted by researchers from University of Bielefeld in Germany finds hatred of Muslims decreased over past year, while hatred of Jews and homosexuals growing. Poland defined as most racist country


Right-wing parties are growing stronger in Europe, and Swiss citizens have even voted in favor of a ban on mosque minarets, yet the fear or hatred of Islam in the continent has dropped over the past year, according to a study conducted in Germany and published Sunday. However, hatred of Jews and homosexuals is on the rise.

For the last eight years, the Institute for Interdisciplinary Research on Conflict and Violence at the University of Bielefeld has been running an annual study called "German Conditions" to learn about "group focused enmity" such as xenophobia, sexism, racism, anti-Semitism, and prejudices against unemployed, disabled, homeless or homosexual people in Germany.

Due to the financial crisis and the fears of the future, poverty and unemployment that are being stoked by that, the researchers expected a rise this year.

But compared to last year's results (as well as those of 2002), the level of resentment against most minorities declined – sexism and racism even considerably, Islamophobia slightly. There were only two exceptions: Homophobia and anti-Semitism.

Hatred of both groups is on the rise as they are considered to be found also among people of a high status.

Beate Küpper, one of the study's main researchers, believes that the financial crisis may in fact be a possible explanation for that. Küpper said that although in comparison to other European countries Germany was on average, it was staggering that in the light of German history, 48% still agreed with anti-Semitic statements.

For the first time, the study also compared xenophobia among European countries like Britain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, Poland, and Hungary. According to their findings, the level of prejudices against minorities in Europe is alarming.

About 50.4% of the population agreed that "there are too many immigrants" in their country, 54.4% believe that "the Islam is a religion of intolerance." Interestingly enough, the percentage of people who believe "that there are too many Muslims" in their country is especially high in those countries that actually have a low percentage of Muslims living in them.

Nearly one-third (31.3%) of the Europeans somewhat or strongly agree that "there is a natural hierarchy between black and white people". A majority of 60.2% stick to traditional gender roles, demanding that "women should take their role as wives and mothers more seriously." Some 42.6% deny equal value of gay men and lesbian women and judge homosexuality as "immoral".

Hiding behind criticism of Israel

Anti-Semitism is also still widely spread in Europe. The team of scientists from the universities of Amsterdam, Bielefeld, Budapest, Grenoble, Lisbon, Marburg, Oxford, Padua, Paris, and Warsaw found that 41.2% of Europeans believe that "Jews try to take advantage of having been victims during the Nazi era". The highest degree of affirmation was in Poland - 72%, and the lowest in the Netherlands – 5.6%.

One-quarter of Europeans (24.5%) believe that "Jews have too much influence", and nearly one-third (31%) agree that "Jews in general do not care about anything or anyone but their own kind. On the other hand, 61.9% say that Jews "enrich our culture", especially in the Netherlands, Britain and Germany.

They study also measured the degree of anti-Semitism hidden behind a specific criticism of Israel’s policy towards the Palestinians that uses anti-Semitic terms such as "war of persecution" and a generalization to "all Jews".

Some 45.7% of the Europeans (apart for France, where this facet of anti-Semitism was not measured) somewhat or strongly agree that "Israel is conducting a war of extermination against the Palestinians." About 37.4% agree with the following statement: "Considering Israel’s policy, I can understand why people do not like Jews."

Overall, the level of anti-Semitic attitudes varies quite a lot across Europe with comparably lower levels of anti-Semitic attitudes in Britain and the Netherlands and significantly higher levels in Portugal, and especially Poland and Hungary.
