Hatred of Jews is still being taught in Muslim countries

It is heartening to learn that more and more intellectuals, such as the Moroccan Kamal Ait bin Juba, writing on the liberal website ahewar.org, not only recognise the tragedy of the Holocaust, but acknowledge that antisemitism is routine in Muslim countries. Via MEMRI (With thanks: Lily) 

World leaders gathered in January at Yad Vashem to mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz

"On January 23, 2020, a ceremony was held in Jerusalem to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp in Germany [sic], where many Jews were exterminated.

The anniversary of this event becomes [especially] justified and meaningful in light of the existence of a state like Iran, which never stops threatening to wipe Israel off the map… by means of its supporters, who take every opportunity to chant slogans like ‘death to Israel, curse the Jews.’ Moreover, hatred of Jews is still being taught in many schools across the world, [including] in so-called Islamic states, some of which may even have diplomatic ties and peace agreements with the state of Israel.

 These people [the Jews] are described [in their curricula] as devils, violators of agreements, etc. "The paradox is that what is called antisemitism…  an accusation that is made against those who deny the Jewish Holocaust or disagree with the Jews about it in the West, in Europe or in the U.S., is completely routine in the Muslim countries, where hatred of Jews, learned through major ‘sacred’ texts, is a matter of consensus.
