Saudi Arabian Schoolbooks Reveal Rampant Anti-Semitism Gripping The Muslim World
by Lorena Waters

Muslim anti-Semitism still flourishes The expose by BBC1's Panorama documentary of Saudi run schools operating in Britain teaching lessons in Jew-hatred to six year-olds (as well as homophobia and instructions on how to amputate the hand of a thief) highlights several important themes. Firstly, anti-Semitism (which, whatever the literal translation, in this context means attacking Jews) is rampant in the Arab/Muslim world. The text books being used at the "weekend schools" revealed by Panorama were from the Saudi national curriculum and portrayed Jewish people as "monkeys and pigs" bent on world domination. Building on the anti-Jewish strands that exist in the Koran, modern hate-texts, including the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, Mein Kampf, Did Six Million Really Die?, are widely promoted and consumed from Riyadh to Jakarta.
