Egypt: Center for the Arab Hate Industry

Egypt continues as a center for the publication of crude anti-Semitic literature encouraging hatred for Israel, the Jewish people and the West, and in effect justifying the use of violence against them. At the International Book Fair in Qatar in December 2005, anti-Semitic texts published in Egypt claimed that the Jews are responsible for all the ills of the world, denied the Holocaust, and used early Islamic traditions to "prove" that the Jews have always betrayed and plotted against Arabs.
