Poll shows growing anti-Semitism in Hungary

Anti-Semitism is on the rise in Hungary, as anti-Semitic language has become legitimate in public parlance because of the “Jobbik effect,” a survey by Central European University sociologist András Kovács shows.

Some 24% of adults said they find Jews disagreeable, up from 10-14% gauged during 1993 to 2006.

    How is the question anti-sem?

    This news item is *really* short – kind of hard to figure out what to go on here.

    I did find a Hungarian-language story on this survey that has a ton of information, including charts and more information about the wording of some of the survey questions: Google for “Az antiszemita nyelv legitimmé vált a közbeszédben”, it appeared on the site of the Szombat journal.

    Understandable considering current events,but they are too arrogant to ever learn :)

      Yes, we all just know that the ‘j*ws’ control the IMF, but they also control the ‘Market’, so where should Orban The Viktator have gone to fix Hungary’s problem?

      ‘leto’ think the ‘j*ws’ only control the IMF and not the ‘market’, so he just loves option 2, the ‘Market’, but which one do you propose?

      What is ‘option 3’?
