Days after a gunman murdered a rabbi and three children at a Jewish school in Toulouse, France, a new study reports widespread anti-Semitism in France and across Europe, the Religion News Service reports. The survey, conducted in January by the New York-based Anti-Defamation League, found that 24 percent of the French population holds anti-Semitic views, up from 20 percent in 2009, and that the countries of Hungary, Spain and Poland have "literally off-the-charts" levels of anti-Semitic attitudes. By comparison, an October 2011 survey found that in America, 15 percent of the population holds anti-Semitic views. However, nearly one in five Americans said Jews had too much influence on Wall Street, a significant increase from previous studies.
