Anti-Semitism  

Posted: June 27, 2003


Anti-Semitic caricatures


Introduction
Official legitimization of anti-Semitic materials.
Anti-Semitic caricatures continue to appear in the Egyptian media. During June 2003, the quasi-opposition daily Al Wafd printed a number of viciously anti-Semitic cartoons. The caricatures feature horrific depictions of Jew-as-demon, Ariel Sharon with a swastika on his tie etc. While Al-Wafd is an opposition newspaper, these images are quite common in both government and opposition media outlets.

Sharon says to a group of religious Jews: "Quickly, go and build 10 settlements so we can remove them in front of the cameras". (June 6, 2003)

Sharon is pointing at a sign on which it is written "Settlement", saying to the worker: "Did you believe that you are going to remove the settlement? I meant that you remove the sign". (June 8, 2003)

The American is stabbing "Iraq", while Sharon is saying: "You are still looking for (excuses)? End it quickly. I don't want anybody to stand in front of me in the region". (June 10, 2003)

The cartoon's headline: "Increasing Disagreements between the Palestinian PM and the Palestinian Groups". Sharon and America are dancing while "Palestinians" are killing each other. (June 12, 2003)

Sharon is saying: "Don't you want me to implement the Road Map? I already implemented it". (June 22, 2003)
