Before 1948 an estimated 900,000 Jews lived in what we now know as the Arab states. Since then, the vast majority have left, forcibly in many cases, bringing the total down to fewer than 8,000. The conflict with Israel has undoubtedly been a major factor in this. The history of Jewish communities in the Arab world is not widely known and tends to be denied or played down by Arabs, often for political reasons.
I’d like you to watch this 23-minute video to see how Islamic media deals with the Jews when it’s not even minimally constrained by having to operate within a Western country. These clips, compiled by the Middle East Media Research Institute, come from various Arab television stations. (If you can’t see the video, the link is here.)
They are sickening, especially so when children are made to parrot the hatreds of their elders. The old saw that Jews mix the blood of goyim into their Passover matzos is given big play (has anyone ever wondered why those matzos never seem to be red?), and even the Holocaust is justified with glee. Peter Singer’s expanding circle of morality seems to have missed some parts of the world.
Can anyone believe that even a two-state solution in the Middle East will quell this virulent anti-Semitism? Several announcers in fact state that wouldn’t happen. As Anthony Grayling has stressed, this is how religion behaves when it’s not on the back foot.
The Nazis recruited and Islamic Fundamentalists eagerly volunteered for duty in antisemitic activity. The quintessential example is the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and his relationship with Adolf Hitler and his actions as a Nazi collaborator.
