The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) will release on Tuesday the findings of its first-ever global survey of anti-Semitic attitudes in more than 100 countries around the world. 

Arutz Sheva will feature a live broadcast of the press conference in which the findings will be presented. The conference begins at 5:30 p.m. Israel time (10:30 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time).

Highlights to be released include:

  • How pervasive anti-Semitic beliefs are globally and in areas where polling on anti-Jewish attitudes has never before been conducted, such as the Middle East, North Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Sub-Saharan Africa, Western Europe, Asia and Oceania.
  • Hard data that quantifies anti-Semitic attitudes.
  • Fascinating polling results from countries where anti-Semitism has recently been in the news, including Ukraine, Hungary, Greece, Belgium and Iran.
  • 70 years after the Holocaust, sobering statistics on awareness levels.
  • Which countries have the highest levels of anti-Semitic attitudes, and least.
  • Global demographic data on anti-Semitism by age, education and religion.
  • Misperceptions about the size of the world’s Jewish population.

The ADL Global 100, fielded from July 2013 to February 2014 by First International Resources and Anzalone Liszt Grove Research, is the largest survey ever of anti-Semitic attitudes with results from 53,100 interviews in 96 languages and dialects.  The poll accounts for roughly 88 percent of the world’s adult population.
