Palestinian Arabs and other anti-Israel and antisemitic Arabs are seething over two tweets by Saudi writer Saud al-Fawzan, a columnist for the Saudi Al Asharq newspaper.

Al-Fawzan's first tweet said:
I rented furniture from a Jewish store, and when my flat burned down, I met the owner of the store, who said (to his workers): “Furnish the flat on my account”. I regretted each time that I “paid a Riyal to save an Arab”
“Pay a Riyal, save an Arab” was the name of a campaign of donations for the Palestinians, conducted in Saudi schools, organized by the Saudi government 30 years ago.

That tweet was met with a torrent of antisemitic replies, but not a small amount of support for al-Fawzan as well.

Then he tweeted:
I am not the Jews’ lawyer, but truth must be said: Show me one Jew who killed a Saudi, and I will show you a thousand Saudis from ISIS and Al-Qaeda who killed their own kind with explosive belts.
This received hundreds of very angry replies.

Arab media is picking up on this story.

The cracks in the antisemitic, anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian stances in the Arab world are getting wider every day.

While the spread of the Internet has had a huge impact on an Arabs who are now questioning the hate they were taught as they grew up, it is worth noting that this writer's attitude was apparently changed by a single Jew doing him a big favor.
