Abstract:

Between 1952-67 Nasser's Egypt was primarily anti-Zionist, but at times also antisemitic. As president, Nasser tried to avoid antisemitic motifs in his speeches, limiting himself to anti-Zionist and anti-Israel pronouncements; privately, he admired antisemitic texts, including the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion". The editor of "al-Ahram", Muhammad Hassanein Heikal, who was Nasser's de facto unofficial spokesman, expressed more radical antisemitic views, e.g. that American Jews wielded a disproportionate amount of power and controlled the Congress. After Egypt's defeat in the 1967 war, Nasser exacted revenge from Egyptian Jews, he sponsored the PLO, whose Covenant advocated Israel's liquidation, and he tolerated Egyptian media and press allegations that Zionism was synonymous with Nazism. Since Nasser's death in 1970, both anti-Zionist and antisemitic diatribes have become part of mainstream Egyptian social and political life. Anti-Israel and antisemitic motifs abounded during the anti-Mubarak campaign of 2011.
