The French Intifada is the most terrifying non-fiction book currently on the market
The Europeans brought their ancient religious hatred of the Jews to North Africa. It was, inter alia, French anti-Semitism that gave gravitas to Jew-hatred among Arabs. Hussey illustrates this with a fascinating, little-known story on the heels of the Dreyfus Affair. Doctor Mauchamp was murdered by an Arab mob in Marrakesh. The Arabs labeled him an agent of the French there to control the local population through the use of new technology. Rather than confront the Moroccans directly, the French Foreign Ministry blamed the murder on a German Jew, Judah Holzmann, an employee of the local pasha. A convenient scapegoat, since everybody hates the Jews.So the same government that turned Dreyfus into a scapegoat at the time also saw fit to use a similar tactic over in north Africa. Later politicians then proceeded to take what they first used with Jews and victimize their own community with it by bringing those same Islamofascists over to European soil. Describe it like this: "first they foisted abominations on the Jews..."
But it's not entirely accurate to say French anti-semitism influenced Arabs - what it did was jumpstart what was already written in the Koran. And that's one of the biggest sins anti-semites from allegedly western backgrounds could commit: re-encouraging more violence in what they see as the most ideal tools.
