They only hide behind that in western forums (like here on Reddit or Twitter) to make their antisemitism more palatable to western progressives. They don’t need to hide it in mainstream Arab society.

The book fair has Holocaust denial, Mein Kampf, and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion in it. I'm surprised it was removed at all.
