ADL: One in five Americans believe Jews control Wall Street

Who is surprised to hear that about 19 percent of Americans think Jews have too much control over Wall Street? Bloggish reports:

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) released the results of its most recent “Survey of American Attitudes Toward Jews in America,” on Nov. 3. The survey (pdf) found that 19 percent of Americans thought it was “probably true” that “Jews have too much control/influence on Wall Street.”

That’s an increase from the last time the ADL asked the question, in 2009, when only 14 percent of Americans answered that way.

In an emailed statement announcing the findings, ADL National Director Abe Foxman attributed the increase in anti-Semitic beliefs among Americans to “the downturn in the economy” and “changing demographics in our society.”

Maybe. But this is an old trope, going back way before such Zionist conspiracy theories popped up at Occupy Wall Street protests. It flares up whenever there are economic difficulties; it’s nothing new.
