The Jew is saying: "Look... I am extending my hand out for peace... but he does not want!"


Newspapers continued to feature anti-Semitic caricatures and themes that include conspiracy theories of Jews plotting to control the world, anti-Semitic blood libels and depictions of the stereotypical Jew (big nose, black coat and hat, skull cap etc.) along with Jewish symbols such as the Star of David.

 

Material in this compilation was translated by ADL from the original Arabic or from English language sources in the Middle East.
