Greece remains the most anti-Semitic country in Europe. And for very good reason.
A new poll by the Anti-Defamation League found that the majority of Greeks continue to hold anti-Semitic views about Jewish control over finance and the global economy, despite a recent drop in anti-Jewish attitudes in other parts of Europe.
Greece—which faces the prospect of economic default at midnight on Wednesday—surpasses Iran and trails just slightly behind Turkey in the percentage of its residents who hold anti-Semitic views.
In total, 67 percent of Greek respondents agreed with the majority of a list of anti-Semitic statements included in the survey. Other European countries, particularly France and Germany, have experienced a decrease in overall anti-Semitic attitudes in the wake of recent attacks on Jews.
According to the ADL poll, 90 percent of Greeks agreed with the statement that “Jews have too much power in the business world” and 85 percent agreed “Jews have too much power in international finance markets.”
In addition, 70 percent said that “Jews still talk too much about what happened to them in the Holocaust” and 51 percent said “Jews don’t care about what happens to anyone but their own kind.”
Over one-quarter of respondents also said they believe the number of Jews reported to have died in the Holocaust has been “greatly exaggerated.” One-third said Jews are “responsible for most of the world’s wars” and 41 percent agreed that “People hate Jews because of the way Jews behave.”
I have met a lot of Greeks, with a lot of different views, but I have never met one who defended the Jews. Even the anarchists hate them. Sure would be nice if the anarchists could figure out they’re doing their bidding.
The reason Greeks hate the Jews is that they still have a collectivist mode of thinking and interacting with each other that has been lost in the rest of Europe. The main goal of the Jew project has been to destroy collectivism, to convince everyone they are an isolated individual so as they look at everyone else as isolated individuals and will then accept things like “banking isn’t Jewish, it is just that most people in banking happen to be Jewish.”
