World Values Survey participants were asked if they would like to have a Jew for a neighbor. Here are the percentages saying no listed by country:
Percent not wanting a Jewish neighbor
South Korea 40.9
Bosnia and Herzegovina 28.0
South Africa 24.4
Northern Ireland 10.5
Czech Republic 10.4
Great Britain 6.8
Muslims, Asians (including Indians), and Mexicans are toward the top of the list. Asians and Mexicans are currently the largest immigrant groups. So why do 91 percent of American Jews think that immigrants improve the country by bringing new ideas and culture? Is the belief that Jews make bad neighbors one of those fresh, new ideas? Now I don't know if immigrants carry the same attitudes as the average person from the sending country, but I don't see why they wouldn't. By the way, the Chinese were not asked the Jewish neighbor question, but in another analysis, I showed that Chinese immigrants have an above-average anti-Israel attitude. (Mexican immigrants had the worst score.)
