Antisemitism is on the rise among young Britons, according to shocking statistics.
Shocking figures demonstrate that anti-Semitism is on the rise among young Britons.
According to latest criminal records, antisemitism incidents increased by over 50% between January and June this year compared to the same period in 2020. In a January horror poll, 45 percent of UK adults were claimed to have antisemitic beliefs, with respondents agreeing to at least one of six antisemitic stereotypes posed by researchers.
The alarming figures come as a result of the Anti-Defamation League’s recent massive poll.
Following up on a 2014 study that recorded sentiments about Jews in more than 100 nations throughout the world, follow-up surveys in 2015 and 2019 were conducted.
According to shocking figures published by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), an estimated 5,684,411 persons in the United Kingdom have anti-Semitic views.
This number represents the percentage of adults in the UK who answered “probably true” to the bulk of antisemitic stereotypes they were asked about, which equals to 11% of the adult population.
Antisemitic sentiments were held by 17 percent of individuals aged 18 to 34 who took part in the survey in 2019, making them the largest age group in the UK and a significant increase from the figure of 7% in 2014.
In the ADL study, 9% of those aged 35 to 49 were found to have antisemitic attitudes, while 9% of those aged 50 were also found to have antisemitic attitudes.
According to the 2019 index, 33% of UK respondents believe it is likely accurate that Jews are more loyal to Israel than to the country or countries in which they live.
Younger Britons were the most likely to accept this: 38 percent of those who answered this statement was probably true were between the ages of 18 and 34.
This was followed by 36% of those aged 50 and older and 22% of those aged 35 to 49.
A total of 20% of respondents felt that Jewish people wield too much power in the economic sector, as well as in worldwide financial markets.
Younger Britons were likewise the most supportive of the previous statement, with 25% of those aged 35 to 49 agreeing, compared to 19% of those aged over 50 and 15% of those aged 35 to 49.
In the case of the latter statement, 27 percent of supporters were between the ages of 18 and 34, while just 18 percent were between the ages of 18 and 34.
