Masralarabia.com is one of the most popular news sites in Egypt, ranked #23 for that country (for comparison, in the US MSN.com is #23 and the New York Times website is ranked #24.).
On Saturday, Masralarabia published video and text of interview with "Israel affairs expert" Dr. Ahmad Hammad, a professor of Hebrew at Ain Shams University.
In that interview Dr. Hammad claimed that Nazi gas chambers were a myth, saying that the only reason the Europeans go along with the "fairy tale" is because they are afraid of being labeled antisemitic. He said that it made no economic sense for Germany to build gas chambers to kill Jews and they would have been far less efficient than simply shooting Jews. At any rate, Nazi Germany didn't single out Jews but all minorities for persecution.
Hammad claimed that Hitler only wanted to expel Jews from Europe, not murder them, and he colluded with Zionists on that mission.
Surprisingly, he said that the concept for "greater Israel" had nothing to do with a Zionist state between the Nile and the Euphrates, but instead refers to something far more insidious: "economic colonization" and "colonization of minds" of Arab states which he says he has warned about for decades.
According to Hammas, the Arab media is sometimes more Zionist than Zionists are. As an example, he derided Arab media for referring to Israel as the Jewish state, claiming that the people in Israel have nothing to do with actual Jews.
Despite the closer ties between Israel and Egypt, antisemitism in Egypt remains embedded in the fabric of that society, and antisemitic articles like this can be found weekly in major Arab media.
