In Bærum there recently done a survey among 500 Muslim youths about their relationship with the Jews and the State of Israel. The youth center Marie Plathe sponsors the survey. The center has long worked with youngsters who are on their way to becoming radicalized.
The figures from the study are not yet fully analyzed, but according to manager Ikhlaque Chan shows a preliminary review that many of the Muslim youth lack knowledge about Jews, Judaism and Israel. Several also have trouble distinguishing between Judaism as a religion and Israeli politics.
No-one reports having had negative experiences with Jews and no-one said they dislike Jews.
However more respondents say that they use “Jew” as an insult. Several also believe that there is an American-Jewish conspiracy against Muslims.
– This shows that the Muslim youths know too little about how things are interrelated, says Chan.
From anti-Semitism to Islamophobia
European Muslims are much more anti-Semitic than the general population, according to a new report. Half of the Muslim population in France, Austria and Belgium have anti-Semitic attitudes. The report was presented in Friday’s Klassekampen.
Shoaib Sultan, adviser in Anti-Racist Center, is not surprised by the findings, and reminds us that many Muslims come from countries with widespread anti-Semitic attitudes.
The report shows a study from 2013 in which Christians and Muslims in a number of European countries are asked whether you can trust Jews. 64.1 percent of Muslims in Austria answer no. In comparison, 10.7 percent of the country’s Christians say the same. In France believes 43.4 percent of Muslims that Jews are not to be trusted – compared with 7.1 percent among French Christians.
Asks for more facts
In 2012 it was made a survey that revealed that 12 percent of the population in Norway have strong prejudices against Jews. But it is never examined whether Norwegian Muslims are particularly antisemitic. Anti-Racist Center has asked that such an investigation is carried out. With specific numbers it becomes easier to recognize the problem and to take action.
Ervin Kohn, head of the Jewish community, agrees.
– For the Muslim community in Norway to deal with this, they should have a good factual basis. The authorities should help, he tells Klassekampen.
He believes the trend in Norway is similar to that elsewhere in Europe, and says the Muslim communities ought to examine their own attitudes.
Jew hatred – Islamophobia rise
Sultan in Anti-Racist Centre think-Semitic attitudes in Norway is somewhat more widespread among Muslims than in the general population.
– Will this be taken seriously in the Muslim communities?
– Many are aware that this exist, but I am unsure if and how it is being addressed, he said.
The report also shows that the anti-Semitic conspiracy beliefs are much stronger among Muslims than among the general population in Europe. 44 percent French Muslims think for example of the idea that the Zionists rule the world. In the general population the figure is 16 percent.
– It is important to get Muslims to understand that Islamophobia one sees in society today is mindset derived from anti-Semitism. Such recognition would appear that vaccination against such attitudes, says Sultan, who has also been the leader of the Islamic Council.
– Are there major differences between the Muslim communities?
– There is reasonable to assume. Attitudes from the homeland are often passed on.

A report from the Institute for the Study of Global Anti-Semitism and Policy shows that European Muslims are far more anti-Semitic than most Europeans, writes the class struggle.
The report shows a study from 2013 in which Christians and Muslims in a number of European countries are asked if Jews are trustworthy. 64.1 percent of Muslims in Austria answer no.
In comparison, 10.7 percent of Austria’s Christian say the same. In France believes 43.4 percent of Muslims that Jews are not to be trusted – compared with 7.1 percent among French Christians.
– It is sad, but unfortunately not shocking, Ervin Kohn leader of the Jewish community told the newspaper.
In 2012 it was made a survey that revealed that 12 percent of the population in Norway people have strong prejudices against Jews. But it is never examined whether Norwegian Muslims are particularly antisemitic. Kohn believes government should fund a study that addresses this.
Must tackle this among themselves
– For the Muslim community in Norway shall take hold of this, they should have a good factual basis. The authorities should help, he said.
Kohn, who have stood up against finger pointing at the Muslim minority in Europe as the cause of anti-Semitism, think anti-Semitism is more prevalent among Muslims than people in Norway.
– There is nothing to suggest that it does not apply to Norway. I miss that the Muslim communities deal with this issue, he says.
The report is based on multiple studies with a total of 40,000 respondents.
