NEW YORK – An Egyptian government newspaper has reprinted an anti-Jewish forgery that first appeared in Nazi Germany in 1935, describing Jews as “vampires.”

In its January 9, 2002 issue, the Egyptian government weekly Akher Sa’a printed an article by Salah Al-Din Hilmi, titled “The Jews are Bloodsuckers and Will Yet Conquer America.” The article included a photocopy of a forged document that originally appeared in 1935 in Nazi Germany, in an antisemitic book titled A Handbook on the Jewish Question which included forged statements attributed to Benjamin Franklin.


A great danger threatens the United States of America. This great danger is the Jew…

For more than 1,700 years they have lamented their sorrowful state, namely that they have been driven out of their motherland, but, gentlemen, if the civilized world today should give them back Palestine, and their property, they would immediately find pressing reasons why they could not return there. Why? Because they are vampires, and vampires cannot live on other vampires… They must live among Christians and others who do not belong to their race.

If they are not excluded from the United States by the Constitution, within at least 100 years, they shall stream into this country in such numbers that they shall rule and destroy us and change our form of government for which we Americans shed our blood and sacrificed our lives, property, and personal freedom.

If the Jews are not excluded within 200 years, our children will be working in the fields to feed the Jews while they remain in the counting houses, gleefully rubbing their hands…

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) is bringing the article to the attention of Members of Congress, as additional reason to oppose the Bush administration’s plan to provide Egypt with sophisticated surface-to-surface missiles, and patrol boats from which to fire them. The Harpoon Block II missiles have been described by their manufacturer as “the world’s most successful anti-ship missiles.”
