Spain's Anti-Semitic Majority: "Germans Were Wrong Not to Burn Them All"

http://www.stonegateinstitute.org/2678/spain-jew-hating

The levels of anti-Semitism in Spain are among the highest in Europe," wrote the Spanish daily, El Pais. According to a poll, presented on November 30 during the Fourth International Seminary on Antisemitism hosted at the Caja Navarra Foundation in Madrid, 52% of Spanish students declared that they would not like to have a Jewish classmate sitting next to them, and 58% of adults thought that Jews have too much power and that they are all too rich.

Anti-Semitism has been Spain's problem since the reconquista in 1492, when the Catholic Kings, Isabel and Ferdinand, obliged the Jewish community either to convert to Catholicism or to flee the country. Over 300,000 Jews left Spain; those who remained where absorbed into the Catholic community, apart from a few who continued to practice their faith in secret (Marranos)..

1. Why is this in the "race" section?

 

Judaism is a religion, not a race.

3. You'll notice that's not the full name of this group. There's another word.

And an ampersand separating them. It means "and."
