Egyptian Newspaper Features Two Blood Libel Articles in a Single Day

An Egyptian newspaper featured two articles on Tuesday that promote the libel that Jews drink Christian – and Muslim – blood on Passover.

Anonymous blogger Elder of Ziyon spotted the articles in Egypt’s Misrelgdida (“New Egypt”) newspaper.

The first is an article by a Palestinian Arab, Mennat al-Sayed, in which he gives a “history” of Passover blood rituals that, he claims, continues, at least in some form, to this day against Arabs.

According to Elder of Ziyon, “In the past, al-Sayed says says (sic), Christian neighbors of Jews were  scared of the holiday because they were worried if they would travel they would be abducted and ritually slaughtered for their blood…Today, the writer goes on, the Jews are keeping this tradition by killing every single Palestinian in cold blood.”

The second article is written by Amr Abdel Rahman, the managing editor of the paper, and it is entitledWhen the Jews drank the blood of Egyptians on Passover.”

Rahman writes: “For our part, we can not overlook the fact that the famous ritual for Jews, especially in their holiday of “Purim,” which is followed by “Passover,” they would gather to celebrate and they required human blood in order to do their rituals.”

He then proceeds to describe the act of blood withdrawal: “They extract the blood with extremely sharp needles and put it in the barrel. These needles ensure that the blood exits the victim very slowly, and thus ensures the painful agony of the victim, his torment is pleasure for the vampire Jews who are keen to pursue this ritual in all its details, they love and enjoy it though it is difficult to understand!”

According to Elder of Ziyon, “The Misrelgdida  newspaper describes itself by saying ‘We believe in credibility and transparency and strive to symbolize the new Egypt..The truth is the basis of our profession, and we believe in humanity and compassion, and that justice is the basis of our humanity, and believe in the future as long as we are alive.'”

  • How did managing editor Amr Rahman find out what they taught us in the secret basements in Hebrew School, using those top secret laser blood extraction machines!!! What Jew spilled the beans to that idiot Rahman?

  • Nadene van Staden

    I am not only horrified at what i have just read but utterly disgusted than anyone can publish such blatent lies but what can you expect from ignorant people.
    As always i pray for the peace of Jerusalem and hope to be there one day with our Messiah ruling and we are all working together for the better of all mankind.
    Shalom

  • Actually, disposing of some wine is a sign of sadness regarding the death of Egyptians, not symbolizing their blood.
    And that spilled wine is specifically NOT drunk, it is thrown out.

  • Frank Fariello

    As a Christian I have alwayd been amazed that people could believe this horrific myth. Bret B’s post seems to shead some light, for me, on a possible source for the story.

    It sounds like a part of the Seder service. Maybe Christians will be targeted next since another Jew 2000 years ago offered his blood to be drank at another Seder.

  • Well…. Technically the drop of wine we dab on the plate to symbolize the blood of every egyptian first born dead; and then we drink the wine. So…. That could have been misconstrued(?) somehow into this silliness?

  • Well…. Technically the drop of wine we dab on the plate to symbolize the blood of every egyptian first born dead; and then we drink the wine. So….

  • how lucky can we be that we deal with such morons….

    • Charlotte Greenbarg

      They are useful idiots. And dangerous ones, too. No mistakes here; this is deliberate to incite another Holocaust.

  • Luigi Rosolin

    The Egypt’s Misrelgdida (“New Egypt”) newspaper probably is under the control of the new Islamic regime and the brotherhood extreme Islamic imposition of sharia .
    The lies and ideology against Jews and Christian are the ideological war that is going on for century.
    Unfortunately many will believe such hating false claim.
    This type of hate is not admissible and Israel authority must contact request a public apology from the Egyptian baked by Obama. I hope that will happened, such false article is more damaging that a bomb!

    • In this case you are taking their “bait”.

      They will come up with new crazy ideas endlessly.

  • Otto Schiff

    Nutty as a fruitcake.

  • Do we need to unravel every twisted argument coming from some sick mind ?

  • The Egyptian people voted for Obama’s close ideologocial partners: the Muslim Brotherhood. Of course the Muslim Brotherhood supported everything Hitler did including murdering six million Jews…..to them Hitler was emulating the sociopath Muhammad when he PERSONALLY decapitated 900 unarmed Jews at Quarayza…..so here is the perfect circle: the Blood Libel-the Muslim Brotherhood -Muhammad-Quarayza-and Obama growing up Muslim and experiencing the above described purity of Islam…..the Blood Libel fits in perfectly.

    • Mort Angerstein

      Richard Sherman: You sound as foolish as those whom you criticize when you bring Pres. Obama into the discussion. You lose all credibility!! Why not simply discuss how foolish the Egyptian’s are who are saying such things.

  • There can not be any peace with people who still think like this.

  • We are in an Islamic Cultural War:

    We each see a different parts of it in the world and if you put all the violent parts together it adds up to only one cause: an 1400 year old Islamic Cultural War. It is the same as that joke of four blind men touching the elephant.

  • This is typical arab/muslim propaganda. Sad that most of the ignorant unwashed arabs believe it. You cannot deal with these savages.

  • The savage Muslms continue to slaughter each other and spread lies about the Jews as they bow down to their pedophile prophet.

  • E Pluribus Beagle

    It’s still one fewer than the Huffington Post
