Forty years ago today, the Yom Kippur War erupted. It was a war between “the coalition of Arab states led by Egypt and Syria against Israel”, as Wikipedia puts it. However, as the Elder of Ziyon posts, there are some who would put it slightly differently:
But if you look at Egyptian media in Arabic, very often it says that this “victory” was over “the Jews” – not over Israel, or over Zionists.
While many of the articles only talk about the “glorious victory,” without naming over whom, when the enemy is named, more often than not, they are called “the Jews.”
Oh really? I didn’t see that in the BBC coverage. I didn’t see that in the Guardian coverage. I didn’t see that in the CNN coverage. I didn’t see that in the Times coverage… [Nurse, the screens!] OK, I didn’t see that in any of the mainstream media coverage. Interesting…
Read the whole thing here, and remember: it’s only antisemitism.
