There's no doubt that Greeks (I'm Greek and live in Greece) believe various stereotypes of Jews. They love conspiracy theories and many have a crazy belief that Jews and Greeks are locked in a secret battle for world domination from ancient times (personally, I think the idea that Greece is even competing in such a battle is even more preposterous than the idea that Jews are). However, I think this survey is crap. For example in the Greek translation, the question asks "Do you think Jews have great influence in the world of business or finance" (not "too much influence" like in the English version). They do! As someone who lived in NY, they definitely have a great influence. They deserve this, since they've earned it through hard work, so I wouldn't call it "too much" influence, but it's definitely "great influence". As for Jews thinking they are better than other peoples, of course they think this. So do Greeks, and just about everyone else too. In the case of Jews, they may even be right! I mean, Jews are the most successful subgroup in the US, in academics, art, and finance. This is a fact. Why does my recognition of this make me an anti-Semite? I'm actually an admirer. I think Jews are (on average) doing something right, other people should emulate them. I can understand paranoia among Jews regarding what goyim think of them after the holocaust, but wouldn't it make more sense to measure e.g. violent acts than poorly translated thoughts before labeling a whole country?
