Germany: A New Study on German and Muslim Anti-Semitism

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The Allensbach Public Opinion Polling Institute, located in Allensbach, Baden Wuerttemberg, Germany, has conducted a survey on behalf of the American Jewish Committee. It queried Germans over the age of 18 and asked them if they agreed with a series of anti-Semitic tropes against Jews (see below). It also measured the responses of the general population versus responses from Muslims and supporters of the Alternatif fuer Deutschland (AfD) party, which opposes mass Muslim migration into Germany. The results of the survey indicate that Muslims and supporters of AfD agree with the anti-Semitic tropes at a higher rate than the population at large. Even so, the numbers attributed to the population at large are troubling, especially given Germany’s history.

Full disclosure. Heretofore, I had the AfD website linked to this site. It appears I may not have done sufficient homework on them, so I have removed the link pending further checking with my German contacts. It behooves me to check out this allegation carefully, and I will do so. Thus far, all I can determine is that AfD has been accused of harboring anti-Semitic sentiments among some of its members, but there also is widespread disagreement on the question. Of course, what I read in the media, I take with a grain of salt, and much of the German media and political establishment is anti-AfD.

The below article from Welt is translated by Fousesquawk.

The devastating indifference to Muslim hatred of Jews

 11:48, Reading time: 2 minutes

Head of Political Department

Caption: Almost one in four Germans agree with anti-Semitic statements. That comes from a new study. Among Muslims, the number is even higher. Frederik Schindler of Welt-editorial staff (domestic policy) has the numbers and clear demands.

In an Allensbach-survey, more than 45% of Muslims questioned shared anti-Semitic statements. In other groups, Jew-hatred is also widespread. The reaction: A collective shrug of the shoulders. Have we taken all this into account?

It has only been one week since these numbers have been out there-in their frightening and urgent clarity. And yet today, these numbers play no further role in the public. Sent out in the news broadcasts, clicked on the websites. With no outcry. Without debate or even an idea of how this must be permanently countered.

As a reminder: These are the results of a representative survey by the Allensbach Public Opinion Polling Institute (IdF) on behalf of the American Jewish Committee. According to (the above), almost 22 % of the population in Germany shared anti-Semitic attitudes. Among Muslims questioned, the agreement with anti-Semitic statements was almost 46%.

Chart 1- Agreement with statements about Jews

Proportion of those questioned who agree with the following statements in percentages

Jews use their status as victims of genocide in World War 2 to their advantage: General population 34%, Muslims 54%

Jews are richer than average Germans:  General population 27%, Muslims 47%

Jews have too much power in the economy and finance: General population 23%, Muslims 49%

Jews have too much political power: General population 18%, Muslims 45%

Jews are responsible for many economical crises: General population 11%, Muslims 33%

-Base: Federal Republic of Germany, from 18 years (of age), Allensbach Archives, IdF Survey

Of Muslims who declared frequent mosque visits, agreement with the anti-Semitic statements queried was clearly higher than those Muslims who reported only occasional, seldom or never visiting a (mosque) service. And: In all of the queried statements, the agreement among supporters of Alternatif fuer Deutschland (AfD) was the highest in comparing (political) parties.

Chart 2-Anti-Semitic prejudice especially pronounced among AfD supporters

Proportion of (those) questioned in agreement with following statements in percentage

Jews use their status as victims of genocide in World War 2 to their advantage: General population 34%, AfD supporters 48

Jews are richer than average Germans:  General population 27%, AfD supporters 46%

Jews have too much power in the economy and finance: General population 23%, AfD supporters 39%

Jews have too much political power: General population 18%, AfD supporters 34%

Jews are responsible for many economical crises: General population 11%, AfD supporters 22%

-Base: Federal Republic of Germany, from 18 years (of age), Allensbach Archives, IdF Survey

Each of these findings alone is reason for a comprehensive Parliamentary debate, a cabinet referral, a packet of measures from the Federal Interior Ministry- and what about the representatives of Islam?  And the comments of the AfD deputies in a Parliamentary debate on these numbers would also be interesting. Yet, nothing about it.

A devastating sign

What is really going on here? Have we taken all this into account? According to the motto: “It’s always been this way, move on.” “Can nothing be done?” “The problem is thousands of years old”.

A Welt research has investigated how the justice system deals with the problem of Muslim hatred of Jews in this country, and using as an example, the anti-Semitic riots across the republic in May 2021, when the Israeli-Palestinian conflict escalated anew. Result: Apart from single, severely punished cases, numerous investigative proceedings were dropped or handled with absurdly low sentences.

The signal that goes out from this collective shrug of the shoulders is devastating: Anti-Semitism is firmly anchored in the republic’s everyday life. Politics and the judicial system cannot bring enough strength to counter it in an effective way. A deeply disturbing finding, exactly like the results of the Allensbach investigation. And possibly, they are connected. When will Germany act?
