a tolerant left?

A friend sent this article by email. It also appears that antisemitism pushes respondents left on a generic economic question (tax cuts for business to spur job creation).

The traditional concept of a left-right conflict takes into account the realities of the period only very partially, and it often fails to take them into account at all. ---Zeev Sternhell, on the development of fascism.

It was before I knew this and will continue to be. But I'm somewhat reassured by having data.
