Anti-Semitic Zionism

I have always argued that all of Israel's friends in the Arab world (who can be counted on the toes of one foot or two) are essentially rabid anti-Semites: from the King Hasan II of Morocco to Anwar Sadat to the holocaust-denying, Mahmoud Abbas. Sadat's chief adviser and favorite propagandist, Anis Mansur, has been a big supporter of Israel. Yet, his articles are full of anti-Semitic fulminations that never get translated by MEMRI. MEMRI and other Zionist propaganda outlets, forgive and ignore anti-Semitism when expressed by supporters of Israel. Here, Mansur says that "Jews are ill-tempered by their very constitution and full of anxieties."
