In virtually every generation anti-semitism somehow finds new and unique ways to grab the imagination of peoples base prejudices. Witness the resurgence of neo-Nazi activity in parts of Eastern Europe. Here are countries where anti-semitism grew to maniacal proportions that led to the wholesale genocide of six million Jews. However, in recent attitudinal surveys, in countries such as Poland, 75 per cent of those surveyed indicated intolerance towards Jews. Even in Germany, where neo-Nazi extremism has been fought vigorously and seems to have waned, a survey conducted by the EU agency for Fundamental Rights showed fully 61 per cent of those polled indicated that anti-semitism in Germany was its most serious problem, scoring higher than the economy or health-related matters.
Almost 6,000 individuals identifying themselves as Jews from Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Sweden and the UK participated in the survey. More than 66 per cent noted that anti-semitism was a problem in Europe with over 75 per cent agreeing that there was a noticeable increase in their own countries of origin. Indeed, in France, the anti-semitic and racist Front Nationale garnered 20 per cent of all votes during the first round of the 2012 national elections.

I hadn’t noticed that until you pointed it out. Yeah, a poll of that general character seems about as useful and relevant as asking Obama if he thinks Americans are racist.
