From the Paper:"Although it would be difficult to make any universal statements about the relations between Christians and Jews in Western Europe in the 19th century, there is some evidence that prejudice and overt antiSemitism declined during that time. For example, during the second half of the 18th century in Great Britain, the Pelham Jewish Naturalization Bills was withdrawn and repealed after an upsurge of antiSemitism, but by the end of the 19th century, members of the ruling elite supported a Zionist state (Williams and Ramsden, 1990)."
