Introduction Oman Egypt United Arab Emirates
Saudi Arabia Jordan Qatar
Arab Newspapers

Anti-Semitism is widespread throughout the Arab and Muslim world, manifested in every segment of society. The following report is a compilation of select anti-Semitic expressions in the Arab and Muslim world in October-November 2004.

Al-Ittihad, United Arab Emirates government daily, November 27, 2004.
The cartoon's heading: "After the election of the new President". The Jew is saying: "We will start stirring up confusion in the world again!"

Alleged Jewish/Israeli control of U.S. foreign policy, especially with regard to the U.S. presidential elections, the war in Iraq and U.S. legislation (The Global Anti-Semitism Review Act) continued as major themes. Newspapers continued to feature anti-Semitic caricatures and themes, 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.
