Egyptian magazine uses antisemitic caricature to incite against Israel 70 anniversary event

Egyptian magazine Rose al-Youssef has this on its cover:

The article is about a 70th anniversary celebration that the Israel embassy is throwing, using a classic antisemitic caricature of a Jew to get Egyptians angry that such an event could take place in Egypt.

YNet reports that Egyptian officials tried to get the event canceled, ostensibly for “security reasons” but in fact because of their insane hatred of anything Israeli. When Israel pushed back and insisted that the event would go on, the officials apparently leaked the invitation to Rose al-Youssef with the intent of inciting Egyptians to be angry.

The article included a photo of the Israeli ambassador David Govrin, in a thinly veiled attempt to tell Egyptians to attack him if they see him.

It also included a copy of the invitation so that Egyptian bigots can go and try to stop or spoil the event, which is scheduled for Tuesday evening.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
