The study, authored by Dr. Laura D. Staetsky and Dr. Jonathan Boyd, reveals that one-third of Jews feel that that non-Jews’ support of the boycott of Israeli goods is anti-Semitic, while nearly half feel that the comparisons of Israeli treatment of Palestinians to Nazi treatment of Jews are “definitely” anti-Semitic.

“Most respondents (over three-quarters) maintained that they hear the Israel/Nazi parallel in Britain at least occasionally,” the study states.

The respondents most commonly identified Muslim extremists, teenagers, and people “holding left-wing views” as the perpetrators of anti-Semitic acts.
