The Riyadh Book Fair in Saudi Arabia featured several stalls which prominently displayed antisemitic propaganda, including books accusing Jews and ‘Zionists’ of operating a global conspiracy, as well as Mein Kampf, it has been reported.

Whilst it is perhaps not particularly shocking to hear that such books are being openly sold in Saudi Arabia, Arabs News described the United States as a ‘major participating country’ in the event, and US Cultural Attaché David Edginton felt it to be appropriate to ‘congratulate’ the Saudis on the event, which he saw as an opportunity to ‘exchange ideas freely’. A spokesmen for the US Department of State has refused to rule out the possibility of returning to the book fair next year.
