The antisemitism in the Arab media has reached Hitlerian depths. Arab propagandists deplore what they describe as Israel’s “genocide” of the Gazans; they have no answer to those who point out that Gaza’s population was 400,000 in 1967 when Israel took it over and was 1.3 million in 2005, when Israel left the Strip, which means the population more than tripled under Israeli rule, which does not bespeak a “genocide.” The population of Gaza is 2.2 million today, so it seems that the Israelis have not done a thing since 2005 to promote a “genocide” in neighboring Gaza. In fact, for a “genocidal state,” Israel has a most incongruous history. Of the eight wars it has had to fight against various permutations and combinations of Arab states and terror groups, Israel did not begin a single one. But it won all eight wars, and none of those victories was followed by a “genocide” of the enemy. In fact, Israel has supplied water, fuel, and electricity to Gaza until this latest war.
Those who comment on Israel and the Palestinians need to familiarize themselves with how, in the Arab mass media, Jews are being murderously maligned in prose that would make Der Stürmer proud. A roundup of some of the most recent examples of this condemnation, not just of Israelis but of “the Jews,” can be found here: “Arab antisemitic articles are getting worse: now they are praising Hitler, praying for genocide,” Elder of Ziyon, October 30, 2023:
…Cairo24 uses the Gaza war as an excuse to praise Hitler:
What did Hitler say about the Jews? In light of the escalating events by the Zionist occupation towards the Palestinians, especially children, women and the elderly, some are searching for the most prominent things said by Adolf Alois Hitler, the Nazi German politician. He wanted to exterminate them from the face of the earth, so his view was correct. He told them that they were the cause of the devastation that was befalling the world, so he burned them….
Algeria’s El Khabar has an article that says:
…There is no evil that has spread in the world unless these bastards are behind it. The Jew Karl Marx was behind atheistic communism, the other Jew Durkheim was behind the sociology that tampered with the family, the Jew Freud based his psychology on scandalous sex, and the Jew Sater [sic for “Sartre,” who was not Jewish] promoted pornography.
Egypt’s El Balad publishes a prayer for the genocide of Jews. Here is a small part:
…Oh God, destroy the Jews in Palestine, the children of monkeys and pigs, and make their women barren, O God, and may their children be dispersed….
A columnist in Saudi Arabia’s Al Madina writes:
The current events in Gaza have proven the truth of the Holy Qur’an about the Jews, in their many hideous characteristics, including their constant practice of killing. If they did not kill others, they would kill themselves, meaning they would fight among themselves. And God says: (Then it is you who kill yourselves) in addition to their killing of the prophets, and whoever kills the prophets will not There is no doubt that killing Arabs and Palestinians is easy for them, and the doctrine of Israel’s army, police, and Mossad intelligence is killing, then killing, then more killing!…
To these genocidal maniacs, Hitler is a hero. So Stalin, who hated the Jews with not quite equivalent fervor, but unlike Hitler, didn’t live long enough to act on his hatred. He was, after all, just getting started with the “Doctors’ Plot” when he died in March 1953. It is crystal clear, to these Arab journalists and academics, that “the doctrine of Israel’s army, police, and Mossad intelligence is killing, then killing, then more killing!” There can be no compromise with such murderous and evil people; the only way to deal with them is to rid the world of them. Hitler did not kill all the Jews, according to the apocryphal story that many Arabs believe, because he supposedly wanted to keep some alive to show the world why they deserved to be killed. But the unstated premise is that now there is no longer any reason to let Jews survive. The Arabs need to understand that, and not leave Hamas to fight alone. In fact, it’s a war to be fought by all Muslims. And not just by Muslims, but by all those marching across the world in support of Hamas and calling for the disappearance of Israel (“Palestine shall be free/From the river to the sea”), in rallies all over the Western world, in Paris, London, and New York City. It’s open season on Jews even outside the Arab world, as the terrified Jews who landed in Dagestan discovered, as local Muslims tried to lynch them. Had the police not been there, the mob would certainly have pulled the Jews and Israelis who had just arrived from Tel Aviv limb from limb.
In Pakistan, the youngest senator in the history of the country, Afnan Ullah Khan, posted a picture of Hitler with the caption “Now we know why Hitler killed the Jews.” Khan is not the usual know-nothing; he’s a graduate of Oxford, which makes all the more horrifying his genocidal sentiments. But from Dagestan and Pakistan to America and Europe, and thence to Algeria, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia, annihilationist antisemitism is becoming, in every sense, and not only among Muslims. all the rage.
Elder of Ziyon thinks we should pay close attention to the spread of the antisemitic virus and its main carriers in the Arab and Muslim media. I can’t disagree.
