Saudi book fair promotes antisemitic literature, including Mein Kampf and book by former KKK leader

Jed­dah Inter­na­tional Book Fair in Saudi Ara­bia has reportedly offered several antisemitic books for sale. The fair, which took place 12th-22nd December hosted over 350 publishing houses from 21 countries. Included on its ‘book list’ were My Awak­en­ing: The Jew­ish Influ­ence in the United States by David Duke, White-nationalist, antisemitic conspiracy theorist, far-right politician and former ‘Grand Wizard’ of the Ku Klux Klan. His work was classified by the fair as “political science”.

Further featured works included Adolph Hitler’s Mein Kampf and a book entitled Free Masons, The Jews and The Torah by Dr Noman Al Sama­rayi, which pro­motes conspiracy the­o­ries about Jew­ish “world domination”.

The recent Doha Inter­na­tional Book Fair in Qatar also included antisemitic titles, such as the Arabic Jew­ish Encyclopaedia, which is described in its introduction as a book “to help learn about Jews and their wickedness, treason and deception, which they practiced with all nations, so not to be deceived by them and by their promises of false peace.”
