Aus der EUMC-Studie „Manifestations of Antisemitism in the EU 2002 – 2003″ (Part on France):
On the whole the ‘Sofres’ director concluded that there is “no massive antisemitism among the youth of North African origin (…) It is thus essential not to stigmatize a community (…) which, in its great majority, rejects antisemitism”. Compared with the whole group of people between 15 and 24, the survey shows that the young people of North African origin are in fact even more intolerant of antisemitism than the average. This might be explained by the fact that antisemitic acts or attitudes remind them that they have themselves suffered from racial or cultural discrimination, as Muslims or as children of North African parents.
- 88% of the young people questioned considered that „Jews should be allowed to follow their usual customs without risking getting into a fight“.
- 95% of young people of North African origin thought that Jews have the „right to follow their usual habits without risking getting into a fight“.
