A new YouGov poll shows that more than half of UK Jews fear their community has no future in Britain and reveals that anti-Semitic sentiments are more prevalent than widely believed. The study concludes that British society is at a “tipping point” with Jewish families increasingly questioning whether to stay in the country.
Their sense of insecurity is bolstered by the finding that 45 percent of Britons agreed with at least one of the anti-Semitic statements put to them. Some 25 percent agreed that “Jews chase money more than other British people,” while one in five accepted that “Jews’ loyalty to Israel makes them less loyal to Britain.”
A further 13 percent said: “Jews talk about the Holocaust too much in order to get sympathy.”
The poll was commissioned by the Campaign against Anti-Semitism (CAA).
