Really, I am ashamed of my fellow Austrians!
Robert Zikmund writes on the website of radio station fm4.orf.at:
Austrian anti-Semitism emerges from the heart of Austrian society:
- Every other Austrian believes that Jews have to much influence in the financial markets.
- More than 50% of Austrians believe that Jews are too obsessed with the Holocaust after all this time.
- More than a third of Austrians believe that Jews control the US government.
- And a third of Austrians likewise think that Jews control the whole world.
This is fertile ground for anti-Semites from the extreme right and the extreme left, but also for Islamist extremists. Nota bene, a fertile ground right in the heart of society.
What a shame! It does sound like we didn’t learn anything from our history.
