Report: 20% of Germans Still Anti-Semitic

“Anti-Semitism is deeply rooted in German society” according to an official report conducted for the Bundestag.

The conclusions of an independent commission composed of sociologists, police officials, anthropologists and social psychologists who were appointed by the German parliament in 2009 are found in “the German government report on racism in general and anti-Semitism in particular.”

The report found that about a fifth of Germans agreed with anti-Semitic statements such as “Jews have too much power in business.”

The report says that anti-Semitism permeates well into the mainstream of society, and it quotes children as using the words “you Jew” as pejorative on the playground.
