According to a report by media analysts at MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute) an opinion piece written in a Qatari daily newspaper last month charges that the Jewish people will be punished with a second Holocaust due to their treatment of the Palestinians that places roadblocks on their quest for statehood.  According to Lebanese author and commentator Jihad Fadhl’s article in Al-Raya on May 7, the Israelis are guilty for “Judaizing” Jerusalem and the West Bank by continuing to build hotels and settlements in these areas.

In his political commentary, Fadhl compared the Israelis’ treatment towards the Palestinians to the European colonists’ treatment towards the Native Americans, charging  that both the Palestinians and Native Americans were persecuted because of their dark complexions. Furthermore, he accuses the Israelis of being inflexible and uncompromising towards the creation of a Palestinian state. “The Jews have insisted on burying alive any Palestinian hope to have Jerusalem as the capital of their mini-state, ever since they occupied Arab Jerusalem in the Nakba of 1967,” wrote Fadhl.

Fadhl’s prediction for a second Holocaust for the Jews differs from Holocaust denial in the Arab world. Instead Fadhl claims that the Jewish people deserved its atrocities through blood libels and a perceived failure to assimilate in their surrounding cultures.

Fadhl is not alone in this belief. A recent Egyptian television documentary also displayed footage of the death camps while the narrator can be overheard saying; “This is what we hope will happen, but Allah willing, at the hands of the Muslims.”

Fadhl, a literary critic, is known for his biographies of Arabic singers such as Um Kalthum and Muhammad Abd Al-Wahab.

Al-Raya is an Arabic daily newspaper based in Doha, Qatar and has been published since 1979, covering local news, sports, community events, jobs, and business as well as publishing opinions on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, including pieces that are openly critical of the Jewish State.

    Hashem won’t allow it, we’re too close to the massiah’s arrival.

    Wake up people! The state of Israel does not worship Jesus Christ. Semite, member of a speech family comprising Hebrews, Arabs, Assyrians, decendants of Shem. *Galatians 4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. *Isaiah 21:13 The burden upon Arabia. In the forest in Arabia shall ye lodge, O ye traveling companies of Dedanim.

    I get so tired of this. Heshy, all you want (all I want) are the nations to recognize Israel as a sister State, with a set of rules that call for and practice democracy. Somebody tell me why that’s so hard to achieve. What is the problem? I keep telling my Christian brothers and sisters (I’m a Presbyterian pastor) that Jews don’t have to prove anything to anybody. They don’t need to justify anything to anyone. What’s interesting in this go-around of anti-Semitism, is that it’s coincident with hating the United States, which, it seems to me, is being critiqued and harried in ways similar to the harassment and hatred of Jews. Anybody see a pattern here?

      Much of this started with the Soviet-Arab Voting bloc that formed during the cold war. The idea was to delegitimizatizing the United States by the attempted delegitimatation of Israel [considered to be the United State’s counterpart]. The Arabs would vote with the Soviets against the USA while the Soviets would vote with the Arabs against Israel.

    What is anti semetic? Denying Christ, that he is the only salvation. Who are these synagogue Jews? *Revelation 2:9* Why does the state of Israel hate correction? They choose king David over the God of Jacob (Luke 13:28). Those Jews are Semites true or false? Jacob (Israel) his children are Israelites *Romans 9:4* The state of Israel is spiritual death, because of the fear of the Jews (Esther 8:17) *John 7:13*

  • There are some Arab Nazis, there are some American Nazis, and there are some Jewish Nazis as well. The point however is to stop all forms of fascism and not just one.

  • Winston Churchill said it best in 1948 in THE GATHERING STORM : “Meinkampf was the new Koran”….In other words there is not a dimes worth of difference between Islam and National Socialism.

  • Let’s turn that on its head: Arabs will be punished by a second, third, fourth, and fifth “Nakba/Naksa,” a/k/a defeat at the hands of the Jewish military, until they learn to accept and make a real peace with a Jewish state instead of trying to destroy it.
