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.
