Anti-Semitism in the Egyptian Media
- The Egyptians are Considering Suing the Jews for Gold the Israelites Took from Egypt According to the Egyptian weekly, Al-Ahram al-'Arabi, Nabil Hilmi, faculty of law dean at the University of Al-Zaqziq, "is planning a law suit in a Swiss court in order to take back the stolen Egyptian gold from the Pharaohnic era which was stolen by the Jews when they went out of Egypt thousands years ago". Hilmi said that in light of the fact the Jews have been saying recently that they created the Egyptian culture and that they are asking from Switzerland for the property of Jews who died during World War II, a lawsuit will be submitted to the Swiss court. Hilmi said that "the stealing of gold is understandable. It is a clear theft of resources and treasures of a hosting country, which goes together with the Jews' morals and nature."
