60% of French citizens believe that Jews bear at least part of the responsibility for the growth of anti-Semitic moods in France. These are the results of a survey conducted by the French Judaism Foundation together with the company Ipsos, Gazeta.ru reports, citing The Independent.
The study showed that over half of French citizens believe that Jews have more power and wealth than the average citizen of the country, and 13% believe there are too many of them in France.
In the last two years, anti-Semitic crimes have doubled. For the second year in a row, France has been the leader for the number of repatriates: 8,000 Jews left the country over the past year.
1,005 people took part in the survey. The organizers say the participants represented all age and social groups.
