Anti-Semites for Israel: the case of Sa`id `Aql

I have told you repeatedly that all the Arab supporters of Israel (as few in numbers as they have been) have all been rabid anti-Semites: from Anwar Sadat to Mahmoud Abbas to the Phalanges of Lebanon to `Ali Salem of Egypt to Anis Mansur to Moroccan King Hassan II. Lebanese poet Sa`id `Aql is known (and detested by many) for expressing support for the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982.  Here, he expresses grotesque views against Judaism and Jews.
