An Egyptian television news anchor accused “the Jews” of exploiting the Holocaust to “suck the blood of the Germans.”
The video footage of host Gaber al-Karmoty first appeared on the Egyptian ON TV network and was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute.
Karmoty lamented the fact that publishing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad was permissible but that the Holocaust was “off limits.”
"I'm talking about what people call the Nazi Holocaust, for which they are still sucking the blood of the Germans. Who? The Jews!" said Al-Karmoty.
Egyptian media, which is tightly regulated and controlled by the state, is rife with anti-Semitic discourse.
