Shabbat Shalom and Pesach Sameach from the Iron Dome combat soldiers.
The non-stop indoctrination and incitement that Palestinian children go through, is the obvious reason that they grow up hating Jews and many of them turn to terrorism. That is also the reason that we will never have peace.
MEMRI translates an article from Egyptian magazine El Kibar by Firnas Hafzi, a supposed expert on Hebrew who also writes about fashion, beauty and health.
The article breaks new ground in the classic Passover blood libel, recycling the historic medieval blood libels as fact and adding new accusations against Jews.
The article, along with illustrations from antisemitic and even Nazi sources, is online.
In another stage of the Passover celebrations, [the Jews] combined the preparation of matzas and the offering up of sacrifices with their enmity towards non-Jews, especially Christians, and mixed the blood of one of their victims into the matza [dough. This was done] especially on Passover, Purim and circumcision rituals. They also used blood in acts of sorcery and witchcraft…
…The draining of the victims’ blood is done in [several ways. One method is] by means of a barrel lined with needles. This is a barrel the size of the victim’s body, with sharp needles that stick into all his limbs when he is placed in it, so that his blood slowly trickles down from every part of his body. This entails excruciating torment, which gives pleasure to the Jews who become drunk with joy at the sight of the blood dripping from the victim’s [body] to the bottom of the barrel and into a container placed there to collect it. [Another method] is to slaughter the victim like a sheep and collecting his blood in a vessel, or else slashing the victim’s veins in numerous places so that the blood flows from the wounds into the vessels. Then the blood is handed to a rabbi who prepares a matza laced with human blood in order to please the Jewish god, Jehovah, who thirsts for blood.
The Jews can rejoice in their holidays only if they eat matza laced with the blood of non-Jews.
Based on this false [narrative] in the Torah and this barbaric behavior anchored in delusions, we can understand what motivates the Zionist leaders to kill Arab children in Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine. Former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir once said, insolently, ‘whenever I hear of the birth of an Arab child I cannot sleep at night.’
…The Jewish crimes which came to light throughout history and which were investigated and tried are a drop in the ocean compared to the Jewish crimes that no one knows about. The thousands of children and others who vanish around the world are probably victims of Jewish rituals. Their blood surely lies in Jewish stomachs along with the holiday matzas.
The Jews have tried denying that they drain the blood of non-Jews and use it in their holiday matzas, and they continue to deny it. Rabbi Moussa Abu ‘Afia [one of the Jews implicated in the 1840 Damascus blood libel] converted to Islam during the investigation into the [murder] of Father Toma in order to escape punishment. He gave important testimony regarding the Talmud and the directions it contains that hint at crimes and barbarity.
As part of the efforts to deny [the Jewish crimes], Jewish Americans wrote stories about vampires in the 1970s, in order to disassociate themselves from the accusation of sucking human blood and deceive [the mechanisms of] justice. During that period they spent millions on Dracula films, in order to deceive world public opinion. They claimed that those who slaughter children and adults and suck their blood are lunatics and that all this has nothing to do with them and their religious rituals. On February 14, 1964, the [Egyptian] magazine Al-Musawwar published a story about vampires in Colombia after many [Colombian] children had been slaughtered to shed their blood. Neither the magazine nor the investigators in Colombia dreamed that the vampires might be Jews, rather than [people who] sell blood to hospitals.
Out of hundreds of millions of Arabs, I cannot find a single one denouncing these lies and incitement.
We know from past experience that such naked antisemitism in Arab media cannot be solved by merely publicizing it. Most Arabs are not even aware that there is anything offensive about describing Jews as murderous bloodsuckers.
However, a major advertiser for Al Kibar is Visa, with this ad popping up on most articles and shown on the main page:
I emailed to Visa’s media relations departments for Egypt (firstname.lastname@example.org) , the US (email@example.com) and Europe (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Dear sir or madam,
Visa Middle East is a major advertiser for Egypt’s El Kebar magazine. Every online article seems to pop up your ad for the FIFA World Cup promotion.
The current issue includes a sickeningly antisemitic article by Firnas Hafzi that calls Jews “vampires,” that claims that Jews kill Christian children to drink their blood and mix them with Passover matzah, and that the Dracula story was made up by Jews to deflect from people realizing that they are the ones who suck people’s blood.
And that is just the beginning.
The article is here, the translation is here. Your ad is linked from the front page of the El Kebar website and pops up when viewing this vile antisemitic article.
I would hope that now that you are aware that your brand is being associated with the most disgusting kinds of incitement, that you will not only drop all sponsorship of this magazine but also demand that El Kebar issue a strong apology for publishing this filth.
What do you plan to do about this, and when?
I am a news blogger with thousands of readers, and I am writing about this article and your sponsorship of it.
I look forward to your speedy reply.
I urge you to write to Visa as well.
Here is a chance to make a difference.

In Photos: The Jews of Kaifeng, China hold Pesach Seder.
According to some, the Kaifeng Jews are the descendants of Sephardi traders who settled in China during the 8th or 9th century.
The community of Kaifeng held one of the first Seder meals to be held by indigenous Chinese Jews in generations this week.
There are around 1,000 residents of Jewish descent in the city, one of China’s former imperial capitals. The Seder, was organized by Jerusalem-based Shavei Israel.
According to the organization, the Kaifeng Jews are the descendants of Sephardi traders who settled in China during the 8th or 9th century and founded a community that, at its peak, boasted up to 5,000 members.
The community, thinned by intermarriage and assimilation, collapsed during the 19th century.
