It is now getting repetitive having to produce these reminders:

Popular concern for Europe’s Jews could not develop without wide-spread knowledge of what was happening to them. But the information gap, though extremely important, was not the only limiting factor.

Strong currents of anti-Semitism and nativism in American society also diminished the possibilities for a sympathetic response. A quieter, more prevalent prejudice, a “passive anti-Semitism,” was another major barrier to the growth of concern.

It was reflected in opinion surveys taken by the [USA] Office of War Information. They showed that the impact of atrocity information on the average American was seven times stronger when it involved atrocities-in-general, than when it referred specifically to atrocities against Jews.

“Our hatred for the Jews”, Abdul Aziz told Harold Dickson in [year] 1937 [CE], “dates from God’s condemnation of them for their persecution and rejection of ‘Isa [Jesus Christ] and their subsequent rejection later of His chosen Prophet [Muhammad]…

“Verily the word of God teaches us – and we implicitly believe this O Dickson – that for a Muslim to kill a Jew [in war], or for him to be killed by a Jew, ensures him immediate entry in Heaven and into the august presence of God Almighty.”

Abdul Aziz made this statement to [Harold] Dickson as part of his protest at the Peel Report, Britain’s 1937 plan to partition Palestine into separate Jewish and Arab areas, thereby granting the Zionists the basis for the independent state that they dreamed of…”

“Arabians are conspiracy theorists, and not afraid to admit it. Just as they believe in an active power for good intervening daily in their lives, so they believe that evil and the powers of darkness are manifest here on earth. A Westerner takes the credit for his own successes and blames himself for his failures. And Arabian thanks God for the good and blames the bad on evil influences beyond his control. It makes for a guilt-free existence. It also makes for deep suspicions, and nowhere is this more obvious than in the Arab attitude towards the Jews.”

The world was horrified, but King Faisal was more disturbed by the civil war in Jordan to which the Palestinians’ defiant display of lawlessness led. “Black September” 1970 saw King Hussein fighting to recapture his own kingdom from Yassir Arafat, and, though King Hussein won, this was at the expense of the Lebanon, where [Yassir] Arafat and his guerillas moved on, soon to provoke the civil war which has brought ruin to that hitherto prosperous country.

“The Jews have no rights in Jerusalem,” repeated Faisal, citing a League of Nations inquiry which showed, he said, that the Wailing Wall was part of the Al Aqsa Mosque. “Another wall can be built for them and they can wail against that.”

“[USA] President [Jimmy] Carter added insult to injury.

No Arab leader he had ever met, he declared,
actually wanted to see the creation of
a truly independent Palestinian state…”

“Of course,” says one Saudi prince, “if God granted us a wish,
we would like the Palestinians to vanish off the face of the earth.
We know that they are only nice to us because they want our money.
They are dangerous men with Marxist tendencies.
But their disappearance would be a second wish.
The first wish is the disappearance of Israel.”
