A study published by the University of Teacher Education in Vienna released on Saturday showed that almost 50% of young Austrian Muslims maintain an antisemitic attitude. The systematic delegitimization of Israel in Muslim-majority countries helps explain "imported antisemitism" into Europe, wrote the Austrian daily Der Standard in their report on the poll.
The poll asked Austrian Muslim students if they felt that "Jews have too much influence in Austria," and 48% agreed with the statement.
The students aged between 16 through 19 have migrant backgrounds from a diverse set of Muslim-majority countries and some non-Muslim nations, including Bosnia, Turkey, Albania and Bulgaria. The students study at apprentice schools while working in the restaurant and hotel industry.
