EUROPE - 1 in 5 Believe Jewish Cabal Runs the World

Arno Froese

A secret network of Jews influences global political and economic affairs.

That’s the feeling among a fifth of the 16,000 respondents to a survey among Europeans from 16 countries. The same number also agreed with the statement that “Jews exploit Holocaust victimhood for their own needs.”

The survey was presented at a conference about antisemitism organized in Paris by the European Jewish Association. It was conducted in December and January in Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Poland, among other countries.

Holocaust revisionism and classic antisemitic stereotypes were more common in Eastern Europe, whereas anti-Israel sentiments, including anti-Semitic ones, were more common in the west, according to Rabbi Slomo Koves, chairman of the Action and Protection League. The Budapest-based group is affiliated with the Hungarian Jewish community’s main watchdog on anti-Semitism.

In each of the countries polled, a representative sample of 1,000 adults was presented with 45 questions or statements in face-to-face interviews about Jews and Israel, according to the Action and Protection League. The survey has a margin of error of 0.8%., 26 February 2020

Arno's commentary

Every country on planet earth has something bad to say about another country. That is quite normal. There is an abundance of documentation showing the many hundreds of thousands of wars fought throughout history, and the result is always the same: we are right and they are wrong; we’re good and they’re evil; we want peace, they want war. 

But when it comes to the Jews, there is something totally different, unprecedented in history: plain dislike, which often turns into hatred of the Jewish people. Yes, they are different, because they are the only people in human history among which God was revealed in the flesh. Since 1948, the Jews have a country of their own, and it has existed in spite of vehement opposition by the surrounding Arab nations. But they have greatly prospered like none of the surrounding nations. What is the reason for such a relatively large percentage of Europeans to come to conclusion that a “secret Jewish cabal runs the world”? 

In the Old Testament, we have an example: “And Haman said unto king Ahasuerus, There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the people in all the provinces of thy kingdom; and their laws are diverse from all people; neither keep they the king’s laws: therefore it is not for the king’s profit to suffer them” (Esther 3:8). He certainly told some truths: the Jews were dispersed among the nations, and “their laws are diverse from all people.” Then he begins to lie: “…neither keep they the king’s laws.” Haman planed a Holocaust for the Jews, but that’s not how it ended. Verse 17 of chapter 8 reports: “And in every province, and in every city, whithersoever the king’s commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.”
