Anti-Semitic and Anti-Zionist images abound at Egyptian protests

When Israelis express concern about what’s going on in Egypt, we’re told that this “isn’t about Israel” and that it “isn’t about the Jews.” We’re told not to worry about the Muslim Brotherhood coming out on top of a new Egypt, because they’ve ‘moderated’ and have become ‘practical’ and won’t hijack this revolution the way Khomeni hijacked Iran’s revolution 30 years ago. We’re told that Egypt won’t abrogate its treaty with us, won’t stop selling us natural gas, and will continue to cooperate with us in fighting arms smuggling on Egypt’s border with Gaza. All of this – we are told – should make us change our tune about what’s going on in Egypt. Just ask William Hague.

All of that ignores the reality of what’s going on in Tahrir Square in Cairo. Take – for instance – the image above. It’s an image published by Reuters. It’s Hosni Mubarak being hung in effigy in Tahrir Square. It’s an image that’s appeared in the mainstream media from all over the world. But until now, the effigy was only seen from a distance. This photo is from much closer up. Look at Mubarak’s tie. What do you see on it? Yes, of course, that’s a Magen David (Star of David), which is a clear Jewish symbol.

John Rosenthal describes where he found that photo.

The above photo and the second photo in the preceding series were both found on an English-language pro-protester/anti-Mubarak discussion forum named the Hashem Studios Board. The thread from which they are taken is titled “The Egyptian Revolution.” The thread is replete with anti-Israeli vitriol.

Such vitriol includes comments like “Israel after we are done with Mubarak, we will come for you!!!” In response to the sarcastic question “Whats a pro mubarak protester?,”another commentator replies, “Yeah good question, does he look like this….,” and posts the following cartoon.

Obviously, that’s meant to be Avigdor Lieberman and not Mubarak.

John has combed through images from the Egyptian protests and has found a lot more that will make your blood curdle. The Western news media has apparently been ‘sparing’ us.
