Egyptian Writer Renews Blood Libel. Visa Sponsor? UPDATED

Visa Middle East is a major advertiser for Egypt's El Kebar magazine. The current issue includes a sickeningly antisemitic article by Firnas Hafzi that calls Jews "vampires," that claims that Jews kill Christian children to drink their blood and mix them with Passover matzah.

FOR AN UPDATE, SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM

MEMRI translates an article from Egyptian magazine El Kibar by Firnas Hafzi, a supposed expert on Hebrew who also writes about fashion, beauty and health.

The article breaks new ground in the classic Passover blood libel, recycling the historic medieval blood libels as fact and adding new accusations against Jews.

The article, along with illustrations from antisemitic and even Nazi sources, is online.

Excerpts:

In another stage of the Passover celebrations, [the Jews] combined the preparation of matzas and the offering up of sacrifices with their enmity towards non-Jews, especially Christians, and mixed the blood of one of their victims into the matza [dough. This was done] especially on Passover, Purim and circumcision rituals. They also used blood in acts of sorcery and witchcraft…

…The draining of the victims’ blood is done in [several ways. One method is] by means of a barrel lined with needles. This is a barrel the size of the victim’s body, with sharp needles that stick into all his limbs when he is placed in it, so that his blood slowly trickles down from every part of his body. This entails excruciating torment, which gives pleasure to the Jews who become drunk with joy at the sight of the blood dripping from the victim’s [body] to the bottom of the barrel and into a container placed there to collect it. [Another method] is to slaughter the victim like a sheep and collecting his blood in a vessel, or else slashing the victim’s veins in numerous places so that the blood flows from the wounds into the vessels. Then the blood is handed to a rabbi who prepares a matza laced with human blood in order to please the Jewish god, Jehovah, who thirsts for blood. The Jews can rejoice in their holidays only if they eat matza laced with the blood of non-Jews.

Based on this false [narrative] in the Torah and this barbaric behavior anchored in delusions, we can understand what motivates the Zionist leaders to kill Arab children in Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine. Former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir once said, insolently, ‘whenever I hear of the birth of an Arab child I cannot sleep at night.’

…The Jewish crimes which came to light throughout history and which were investigated and tried are a drop in the ocean compared to the Jewish crimes that no one knows about. The thousands of children and others who vanish around the world are probably victims of Jewish rituals. Their blood surely lies in Jewish stomachs along with the holiday matzas.

The Jews have tried denying that they drain the blood of non-Jews and use it in their holiday matzas, and they continue to deny it. Rabbi Moussa Abu ‘Afia [one of the Jews implicated in the 1840 Damascus blood libel] converted to Islam during the investigation into the [murder] of Father Toma in order to escape punishment. He gave important testimony regarding the Talmud and the directions it contains that hint at crimes and barbarity.

As part of the efforts to deny [the Jewish crimes], Jewish Americans wrote stories about vampires in the 1970s, in order to disassociate themselves from the accusation of sucking human blood and deceive [the mechanisms of] justice. During that period they spent millions on Dracula films, in order to deceive world public opinion. They claimed that those who slaughter children and adults and suck their blood are lunatics and that all this has nothing to do with them and their religious rituals. On February 14, 1964, the [Egyptian] magazine Al-Musawwar published a story about vampires in Colombia after many [Colombian] children had been slaughtered to shed their blood. Neither the magazine nor the investigators in Colombia dreamed that the vampires might be Jews, rather than [people who] sell blood to hospitals.

Out of hundreds of millions of Arabs, I cannot find a single one denouncing these lies and incitement.

  19. Paul Gainer says:

    This is just pathetic. Anyone who knows anything about The Torah or Judaism knows that Jews CANNOT drink blood at all! Not even our own blood! Instead of inciting hate and violence (which is very much desired on my part) I would like to ask the Arab/Muslim people to look past this blatant propaganda against my Jewish people and continue to rebel against their horrible leaders!

  20. Maybe if she READ the TORAH; she'd know that we would never drink blood (Lev. 7:26). The Ignorance abounds!!!

  40. ok seriously ?, i think she took blood libels from yoshka europe from 1000-1800s, bring het to Israel or USA to Shuls and FORCE her to read with Rabbeim that Hashem forbids use of any blood except in animal sacrifice, etc ……….

  41. You got us…. we are Vampires.

  42. Ruth Villagrana-Castaneda says:

    I hope she reads all comments, She has no love for others, she has no compassion for others. What she has to say… is ridicules.

  43. Pedro Acosta says:

    It would be funny if it weren’t actually believed by masses of stupid, ignorant and inbred people.

  44. Moises Hoory says:

    Let's not scramble things around here.
    Firstly, the fact that a given company pays for announcing in a magazine doesn't

    necessarily reflect that it supports its articles.
    Secondly, magazines generally state somewhere therein that "The articles presentes herein

    are the sole responsibility of their authors and do not necessarily reflect the magazine's

    opinior or point of view".

    Now to the article itself, this (beautiful) "lady" spreads a dirty disgusting offensive

    misleading bloody lie and we all know it very well, but it's easier to keep people

    believing in things that never happened than to tell tales that inspire their children to

    love life. It's easier to liver under fear and horror of their tyrant dictatorial

    govenment's whip than to fight to drop it and clean the homeland to welcome a productive

    government that promotes education, culture and progress.

    Therefore, for this kind of people, used to lies, lies and more lies, nothing matters; only

    trouble is they believe in lies, as this is their assumed truth.
    These stories about blood-drinking Jews is as old as is Islam itself, dating from the

    middle-ages, when the inquisidors of the Christian church started their own blood shed

    against non-christians in Europe, mainly the Jews, but let me remind you all that they are

    the ones who represent these alleged acts, once that in masses they eat hostias and drink

    wine, which represent Christ's flesh and blood. So, who's the blood drinker now?

    Mrs. Hafzi should have read more, searched more and kept her mouth shut and fingers off the keyboard. If, anyway she would rather not, she'd better use her beauty to sell cosmetic products and write about fashion.

  45. Lets see how long it will take for Visa to respond with ” we had no idea “

  46. Time to tear up your Visa cards and boycott them. It is unbelievable that they should stoop to this level to get business to buy into the Egyptian fantastical lies.

  57. I am cancelling my visa card

  58. Maria Patti says:

    These claims are untrue! What they need to do is read the Bible, God’s Word to see that no where is it advocated to use human blood for anything!!!! Disgusting and false claims!!

  59. Alema Gebreb says:

    GOD WILL SHOW THEM THE TRUTH.

  60. send this to your Congressmen and demand to know why this bitch is allowed in the US

  61. Yes I am blaming VISA

  62. How many times do you need to make the same Stupid Statement.

  63. Helen Moyle says:

    I’m definitely not doing any business with their name on it. Even a debit.

  64. This article proves again the SICK MIND of moslims, the way they think say more about there hatefull and bloody believes. Anyone with knowledge knows that Jews are FORBIDDEN to drink blood at all, even their own. Blood from non Jews is NOT KOSHER so the stupidity and ignorance of this arab sick mind is way to big!

  65. Barney Abis says:

    It is the Arabs who desire the blood of children-Jewish and their own in the form of self exploding murdering machinesm with Jewish victims. Jews are forbidden the blood of even the animals they slaughter for food. Hey, what do facts have to do with anything in the Arab world?

  66. Canceling mine and letting them know why!
    The only ones I see hacking and eating their victims are those claiming that it is us!

  67. Why should THAT ever happen?Why by lack of Knowledge People perish..VISA has NO Knowledge,Wisdom on The Things of The Most High…..Visa should be sanctioned.VISA should be made to Sincerely Apologize to ALL JEWS.

  68. Ur right my brother I’m not jew but muslims got big land in mid east that they can claim and stay but still they want to give israel thorns.

  69. Visa had nothing to do with it. Read the article from the link Mark Hall left. Visa has stopped doing business with the paper that posted that false nonsense because they do not agree with it and say they had nothing to do with it.

  70. Robin Iris Edinger says:

    I was on the phone with them and they said it is not global payment Visa but tourist Visa. I don't know who to call to complain. Was on the phone (in Philippines) for quite sometime. Who do I call?

  71. Sad. Visa sucks the life-blood out of people…

  72. Bonnie Wright says:

    Satan is afoot here. I cannot believe the lies and distortion of Jewish holidays that happens in this article. Raised Catholic; discovered I have Jewish ancestry and proud of it.

  73. Business is business, right?

  74. vampires are way cooler and sexier that wolves anytime :)

  75. Edit Lipcs says:

    I will stop using it.

  76. And this comes from a woman who if uncovered her head would be Stoned to Death.

  77. Judith Ross says:

    How stupid can a people be?

  78. Dale Silver says:

    kashrut forbids eating food with blood in it and using anything but flour and water renders matzah unfit for Passover, so this is impossible

  79. Dovid Pfeiff says:

    What she does with this writing , is known in psychology as "projection" : their own sick existence they project on others , and is initiated by a very , very deep rooted Muslim minority complex !

  80. If its true it really stinks

  81. Daniel Kennemer says:

    There is more than one passage in the Torah forbidding consumption of blood, even if we use the animal's meat for food. The blood belongs to the animal, and is part of its life and "nefesh", and is not for human use. Anyone who consumes blood has blood on his head, and is cut of from his people, the Torah says. Also when hunting (an activity later outlawed almost entirely in Jewish law), the Torah requires that any blood spilled be covered by dirt out of respect for the animal killed.

  82. Anonymous says:

    Ignoramus – doesn't warrant a response.

  83. Millie Kashuk says:

    Just another illiterate Arab Woman spreading horror tails……She must be so unhappy on the accomplishments of Israel that she uses her mouth as a Gun to fire horrible untruthful stories. ……..

  84. Aldo Mimoun says:

    When things go badly in the arab world and it seems it will always go very bad, who else would you use as a scapegoat, the "Jews" of course. This imbecile of a writer is trying to blame arab failures on the Jewish religion and tradition. It seems that if you want to become popular in the Muslim world just attack the Jews. It's been tried for many centuries and we are still here. While they descend deeper into the dark abyss of ignorance and hatred we continue to ascend into the light of intelligence and humanity.

  85. Gil Gilman says:

    Islam has always been a lying religion, and its adherents in social media, politics, and economics have made a living based on the cultivated lie.

  86. Yechiel Baum says:

    JEWS WOULD NEVER DRINK CHRISTIAN OR ARAB BLOOD SINCE THOSE BLOODS ARE DISEASED WITH HIV AND OTHER DISQUSTING DISEASES. THE ARABS ARE JUST JEALOUS THAT THE JEWISH BLOOD IS OF PURE BLUE BOOD OF THE UPPER CLASS OF MANKIND WHO ARE GOD'S CHOSEN PEOPLE. MOSLEMS COMES FROM ABRAHAM'S WHORE FROM EYGPT WHO BEGET ILLEGITIMATE CHILDREN MAKING THE MOSLEMS ACTUALLY BASTARDS.

  87. They said the same thing about Native Americans… called us cannibals and more animal than human. Evidently, accusing Israel of murdering children hasn't received enough play in the media for them. Now they are trying to up the stakes by claiming Jews drink the blood of children. What idiots.

    By the way, Dracula was written about and has been popular in fiction and in movies long before the '70s.

  88. Steve Brown says:

    Yawn. Does this moronic message ever change ? Me thinks not. The more repeated and scurrilous the message the more believable it is by your American Leftists. Sometimes this includes Jews.

  89. Steve Brown says:

    Hold sir; the Arab world has produced huge advancements that the West could not comprehend and which should not be ignored: carpets that fly, exploding vests, virulently brainwashed children that rival the Third Reich and pistachios unrivaled around the world.

    Just look at the massive number of Nobel prizes awarded them, a clear indication that the world recognizes their humanity (cf Arafat = Peace prize). This is akin to Mr. Obama's Peace Prize, giving the award a gravitas unlike any other. So I would not be too hard on Arabs and their decent into darkness. Repeat after me: It's. Never. Their. Fault.

  90. I think she is wearing a mask – or she's been air-brushed. She has a heart blackened by hatred, so that would be showing on her face, which is why she has to resort to camouflage. Perhaps she is Joseph Goebbels come back "if you tell a lie big enough and repeat it often enough, people believe it". Well, here is my 'truth' for the day: Perhaps she has been paid millions of dollars to publish that lie……

  91. Diane Ullman says:

    Is that old crap back again? I'm 66. When I was little my Catholic friend wasn't allowed to come over to my house because her mother was afraid we were going to bleed her dry for matzohs. I thought we'd finally moved beyond that horse****.

  92. Miki Bacsi says:

    The intellectual level of her article scores between spores and grass. But then nothing is new about that in the Muslim world.

  93. Robin Iris Edinger says:

    I emailed the Director of Middle East Media for Visa (Neemat) and called HQ advertising (Melissa) dept in CA. Both the US and Middle East are working on pulling the Visa logo from the magazine.

  94. Faye Stiller Sued says:

    Robin I called 1 800 visa 911
    I told them I wanted to speak to someone in public relations.

  95. The last statement is the saddest one of all, it shows the Arabs stupidity and ignorance and their hate for a Jew is their religion and that will never change.
