Swiss- Around ten per cent of the Swiss population are anti-Semitic, according to a wide-ranging study of anti-Jewish and anti-Israeli attitudes published on Friday.

The survey also found that more than a quarter of the population had a tendency to agree with anti-Jewish stereotypes.
Reacting to the study, Jewish organisations said that more needed to be done to raise awareness. The Federal Commission against Racism said that every percentage was “too much”.

The survey, which questioned 1,030 people across the country in February, was carried out by the gfs polling institute in Bern for the Federal Commission against Racism, in cooperation with the Jewish weekly magazine Tachles.

It found that ten per cent of the Swiss population had “systematic anti-Semitic attitudes”. [swissinfo]
