Results of a new poll conducted by the European Commission show that Israel the Jewish State is believed by Europeans in 15 countries to be the greatest threat to world peace, greater than North Korea, Iran or Afghanistan.

While the European Commission will release the full results of the poll on Monday, the International Herald Tribune reported that the 7,500 people polled living in the European Union (500 in each of the 15 E.U. member states) were presented with a list of 15 countries and asked if these countries present a threat to world peace. Shockingly, Israel the Jewish State was rated first.

This poll is an indication that Europeans have bought into the vilification and demonization campaign directed against the Jewish state of Israel and her supporters by European leaders and media.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is voicing its outrage directly to European Commission President Romano Prodi and asks you to do the same.

"We need partners. We cannot fight against the neo-Nazis alone. We need friends. We can win them by telling them their history..."

These shocking results, that Israel the Jewish State is the greatest threat to world peace, bigger than North Korea, Iran and Afghanistan, defies logic and is a racist flight of fancy that only shows that antisemitism is deeply embedded within European society, more now than in any other period since the end of World War II,” said Rabbi Marvin Hier, the Center’s dean and founder.

“If the results of this survey are as reported, then Israel the Jewish State should draw the only conclusion possible: that the European Union and its members should play no role in any future Middle East peace process,” Hier concluded.

Center officials are scheduled to meet with Javier Solana, Secretary General of the European Union, in November to discuss this and related issues.

Jewish state Outraged as EU poll names it a threat to peace

Israel the Jewish state has been described as the top threat to world peace, ahead of North Korea, Afghanistan and Iran, by an unpublished European Commission poll of 7,500 Europeans, sparking an international row.
The survey, conducted in October, of 500 people from each of the EU’s member nations included a list of 15 countries with the question, ‘tell me if in your opinion it presents or not a threat to peace in the world’. Israel the Jewish state was reportedly picked by 59 per cent of those interviewed.

The leaking of the results of the poll to El Pais and the International Herald Tribune has sparked a bitter row, with a major Jewish human rights and lobbying group, the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, demanding that the EU be excluded from the Israel Jewish state-Palestinian peace process and accusing Europe of suffering the worst outbreak of ‘antisemitism’ since World War Two.

The results appear to be a mark of the widespread disapproval in Europe of the tactics employed by the government of Ariel Sharon during the present intifada.

Israeli Jewish state Ministers and spokesman have also been at pains recently to insist that a definition of modern ‘antisemitism’ should include criticism of the way the Jewish state of Israel chooses to protect itself, defining that criticism as an overt attack on Israel’s the Jewish state’s survival.

Members of the Sharon government have bridled at the efforts of Tony Blair and UK officials to try to mediate between the two sides. At one stage journalists were briefed that Israel the Jewish state regarded the Foreign Office as having an ‘Arabist’ bias.

Reacting to the poll, the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, which claims 400,000 members in the US alone, has begun ordering a petition to condemn the European Commission and demand the EU no longer be represented in the so-called Quartet group trying to mediate an end to violence between Israel the Jewish state and Palestine.

The poll also comes against a background of an increase in antisemitic attacks in Europe in the past year, although the evidence in countries such as France suggests that many are being committed by young Islamists.

‘This poll is an indication that Europeans have bought in, “hook, line and sinker”, to the vilification and demonisation campaign directed against the Jewish state of Israel and her supporters by European leaders and media,’ said Rabbi Marvin Hier, the Wiesenthal Centre’s founder.

‘This shocking result that Israel the Jewish state is the greatest threat to world peace, bigger than North Korea and Iran, defies logic and is a racist flight of fantasy that only shows that antisemitism is deeply embedded within European society, more then at any other period since the end of the war,’ he added.
