Rabbi Koves, chairman of the Action and Protection League said his group is still working on a breakdown of the results in each country but it is complicated “by challenges in the collection process,” noting the difficulty of finding pollsters willing to go into the poor neighborhoods of Paris and Brussels. 

A fifth of 16,000 people surveyed in 16 countries across Europe have the feeling that a secret network of Jews influences global politics and economic affairs.

The initial results of this survey were presented Monday by the Action and Protection League (APL), a Budapest-based organisation which monitors antisemitism across the continent and introduces educational programs to fight antisemitism, during a conference in Paris organized by the European Jewish Association (EJA).

The same trend coincides with the claim that Jews would “use the Holocaust for their own needs”.

The survey, which will be presented in full later this year, was carried out in December in countries such as Germany, Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Great Britain, Poland and other countries.

Other results: A quarter of the respondents said Israel’s policies made them understand why some people hated Jews. Over a quarter of respondents agreed that Israel was involved in acts of legitimate self-defense against its enemies. Over a third agreed with the remark that in the Holocaust, people in their countries suffered at least as much as the Jews.

In each of the surveyed countries, a group of 1,000 adult people was confronted with 45 questions or statements each about Israel and Jews.

Rabbi Shlomo Koves, chairman of the Action and Protection League said his group is still working on a breakdown of the results in each country but it is complicated “by challenges in the collection process,” noting the difficulty of finding pollsters willing to go into the poor neighborhoods of Paris and Brussels.
