According to a recent survey taken by the Action and Protection League, roughly 40 percent of people surveyed in 16 European countries said a secret network of Jews is influencing the world’s political and economic affairs.

Over a two month period, the European Jewish NGO presented 45 questions or statements about Jews and Israel to a representative sample of 1,000 adults from each of the 16 countries.

Thirty-nine percent of those polled agreed with the statement “There is a secret Jewish network that influences political and economic affairs in the world,” and fifty-one percent of them agreed with the statement that “Jews are more inclined than most to use shady practices to achieve their goals.”

The survey also found that fifty-six percent agreed with the statement that “it’s always better to be a little cautious with Jews.”

Among the countries surveyed were the United Kingdom, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic.
