Germany: Everybody hates the Jews, for different reasons

Still, anti-Semitism isn’t especially common among Turks and Arabs, the group says; research has uncovered latent anti-Semitism among around 20 percent of Germans. Demirel, today director of the initiative and a member of Germany’s expert panel on anti-Semitism, cites a 2010 study by the University of Bielefeld putting anti-Semitism at the same level among all the country’s ethnic groups.

According to the study, based on evidence gathered over 10 years, the difference is the way anti-Semitism is expressed.

German young people without immigrant backgrounds mention resentment at a sense of being pressed to feel guilty about the Holocaust, while Muslim youngsters mention the Middle East conflict. Members of a third group, mostly immigrants from Russia and Eastern Europe, express more typical anti-Semitic attitudes.
