Today’s Arab Media Antisemitism
Earlier this week, Ismail Ibrahim wrote in Al Ahram Gate that Muslims need to unite to defeat the treacherous, evil Jews.
Not Israelis — Jews.
While Arab leaders are rushing to make agreements and peace with the Jews, Israel clings to the Knesset with a painting showing the area from the Nile to the Euphrates as part of Israel. Doesn’t that mean Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and part of Saudi Arabia?!
This painting is fictional, of course.
Did any of the Arab leaders …. demand that this painting be removed? Of course not, and the voices still hold on to the strategic option of peace. Every day we relinquish other rights … to which some Arabs and Muslims cheer.
…I do not know how to negotiate with those who have known treachery of the covenants, and the killing of the prophets, and their hands are still dripping with blood, throughout ancient and modern history — they are Jews. There is no difference between the Jews of today and the Jews of yesterday. They say that they are the chosen people of God. But they say that the Lord of Jews orders them to kill and destroy anyone who is not a Jew, and this is not a slander.
In our struggle with the Israeli enemy, and in order to preserve the Islamic sanctities, including Jerusalem, we have no need to turn to the life and mind of Saladin and Saif Qataz. We fight the Jews, and this is inevitable, no matter how deceitful the deceivers are. Only when Muslims raise the flag of Islam … under the unity of Muslims, will we find Jews in fear and panic.

Meanwhile, Asaad Al Azouni writes in Mustaqila that Jewish lobby groups are very dangerous. Among the worst is MEMRI, which dares to translate articles like his into English — so that everyone can know what Arabs really say to each other. Or, as he puts it, MEMRI’s purpose is “to incite the world against us through deliberate misinformation. ” But also AIPAC, of course — and J-Street, too — are Jewish lobby groups.
Among the methods that these Jewish groups supposedly use are false accusations of antisemitism. This is impossible, he says, because today’s Jews are Khazars from the Caspian Sea today, and are not Semites to begin with. Holocaust deniers are also victims of the false accusation of antisemitism, like Roger Garaudy.
The real problem, we are told, is the Babylonian Talmud, “which is the source of black terror in the world, because it incites crime and murder,” and includes such laws as “send your neighbor diseases, and steal from your non-Jewish neighbor and sleep with his wife.” How dare these evil Jews call anyone antisemitic.
