This year's fair, which just ended, is no exception.
The organizers of the fair deny that they allow such books to be shown as this Gulf News article about the opening of the fair reported:
In his keynote speech, Dr Shaikh Sultan said "the book is the light against ignorance". He added that all books are welcome at SIBF as long as they don't preach hate against anyone.
Here is a photo taken at the Ruslan Publishing House booth at the fair:'
What is that book that has the most copies on the table?
The ALA's President Sari Feldman gave the opening keynote speech to this fair that features hate - and denies it.
Some members of the ALA have used their status as librarians to vilify Israel and there have been unsuccessful attempts for the ALA to boycott Israel.
The same publishing house that publishes the Protocols also features an "Encyclopedia of Jews, Judaism and Zionism" although I'm not certain it was sold at the fair:
That work has been criticized by other Arabs as to being too pro-Jewish, although the author says that he avoided using the term "Jewish people" because the concept of a Jewish nation is "incompatible with reality."
