Views about Jews and Muslims are unfavorable in Europe, according to a recent survey from the Pew Research Center’s Pew Global Attitudes Project.

The results showed that:

  • 46% of the Spanish rate Jews unfavorably, and 52% viewed Muslims unfavorably.
  • 34% of Russians rate Jews unfavorably.
  • 36% of Poles rate Jews unfavorably, and 46% rate Muslims unfavorably.
  • 25% of Germans rate Jews unfavorably, and 50% rate Muslims unfavorably.
  • 20% of French rate Jews unfavorably, and 38% rate Muslims unfavorably.
  • 9% of the British rate Jews unfavorably (Great Britain had the least anti-Semitic views), and 25% view Muslims unfavorably.

Researchers thus concluded there is some kind of relationship between anti-Jewish and anti-Muslim attitudes.

What about Christians?

Anti-Christian views are on the rise in Spain, but otherwise sentiments remain the same with little negativity toward Christians.

The survey also displays differences in religiosity among age groups as well as feelings toward terrorist activities. See the full survey results on the Pew Forum site.
