Worrying Trend

AS 1964-2007

Engage has highlighted an ADL report which indicates a very worrying trendy in the US, an increase in antisemitic attitudes:

“The 2007 Survey of American Attitudes Towards Jews in America, a national telephone survey of 2,000 American adults conducted October 6 through October 19, found that 15% of Americans – or nearly 35 million adults – hold views about Jews that are “unquestionably anti-Semitic,” compared to 14% in 2005. Previous ADL surveys over the last decade had indicated that anti-Semitism was in decline (graph). Seven years ago, in 1998, the number of Americans with hardcore anti-Semitic beliefs had dropped to 12% from 20% in 1992. The survey was released at the annual meeting of the League’s National Commission.”
