UK Poll: Anti-Semitism Four Times Higher Among Muslims

British Muslims are more likely to support antisemitic conspiracy theories than other British citizens, a wide-reaching poll has found.

Extensive research by polling group ICM for Channel 4 found that the Muslim community is more likely to believe that Jewish people have too much power in Britain and too much power over government, media, the business world, international financial markets, and global affairs. Jews were also said to be responsible for most of the world’s wars.

The findings, which were conducted ahead of the broadcast on Wednesday of a documentary,What British Muslims Really Think, also found that attitudes to antisemitism and the Holocaust broadly differed between British Muslims and the wider population.
