Is Europe Anti-Semitic and/or Anti-Islamic?

Postby Leningrad Union » Sat Oct 05, 2013 4:02 pm

I think that Europe is both anti-Semitic and anti-Islamic. Scandinavia seems like the most "friendly" place in Europe towards foreigners. I have dual citizenship with Sweden and everyone there is nice and tolerant. UK, Southern Europe and Eastern Europe seem the most racist in my opinion due to modern white nationalism and an attitude that screams, "STOP WHITE GENOCIDE!!111"

So NSG, what do you think?

white nationalism is practically non-existent and my country is one of the best as far as acceptance and integration of muslims go, especially compared to our southern neighbour. yawn.
ask moderation about reading serious moderation candidates TGs without telling them about it until afterwards and/or apparently refusing to confirm/deny the exact timeline of TG reading ~~~ i hope you never sent any of the recent mods or the ones that got really close anything personal!

signature edit: confirmation has been received. they will explicitly do it before and without asking. they can look at TGs basically whenever they want so please keep this in mind when nominating people for moderator or TGing good posters/anyone!

Not everyone in Europe is racist, anti-Islamic or anti-Semitic. I'm pretty sure it's a small, but vocal, minority.

As a whole, no.

There are fringe groups, and they sometimes have frightning amounts of power (look at the PVV in the Netherlands), but as a whole Europe is neither vehemetly anti-Semetic or anti-Islamic, this does not mean we ought to tolerate extremism (from the religions in question nor political groups massing against them), nor should we not educate people about the dangers of both ideologies.

As a rule, the more bigoted, right wing and generally insane a group is the more they are talked about in the media. This naturally tends to effect the perception of western society.

A large number of Europeans are anti-Islamic but I doubt more than half the total population is. Even less so for the anti-Semetic portion. Though this is a prime example of why the EU needs to disband all religious parties, starting with the CDU, CSU, and Golden Dawn. Just for shits and giggles.

Yes because that's why the BNP (Fascists and White Supremacists) is so ridiculously small.

My opinion, I could be wrong. I don't need evidence for personal experience and what I've seen over the years.

Well the BNP are a ridiculously small party - a party with 1 MEP and 2 Councillors isn't noteworthy. What is noteworthy is how much of a flash in a pan the BNP was and how there membership has collapsed. The largest racist group active in the UK is the EDL which has about 25,000 members - while this is more of a problem its also fringe considering we have a population of 63 million.
