A Saudi columnist wrote in a government daily newspaper that The Protocols of the Elders of Zion—an anti-Semitic forgery—is true, adding that Zionists have been planning to take over the world since 1897 (the year of the First Zionist Congress), the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reported.
“The Protocols of the Elders of Zion [spell out] a very evil conspiracy against humanity… Protocol 24 [describes how] they decided to use dirty and furtive means to occupy not only the land of Palestine, but the entire world. The world knew, and did nothing,” Anisa Al-Sharif Makki wrote in the Al-Yawm newspaper. “[They believe that] they alone are God’s chosen, while all others are inanimate objects they own and may use as they please. When the Jews win a battle, they are obligated to destroy their enemies to the very last one,” the columnist wrote.
In January 2012, a report by the Kantor Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry at Tel Aviv University revealed that charges of an international Jewish conspiracy “have been a central motif in the anti-Semitic propaganda that has accompanied the Arab Spring uprisings.”
“This motif has been emphasized in each of the countries especially by way of pointing a blaming finger towards Israel, Zionism and Jews conspiring against Arabs and Muslims,” the Kantor Center report said, according to the Jerusalem Post.
