“Khaiber” Writer: Now Is The Time to Expose The Jews

An interview with Yusri Al-Jindy, the writer of “Khaiber,” an upcoming television series com­mem­o­rat­ing the geno­cide of Jews in Ara­bia, reveals both the anti-Semitic and political agenda behind the production.

In an interview with Al-Masry Al-Youm, an Egypt-based daily newspaper, on January 16, Al-Jindy said, “The goal of the series is to expose the naked truth about the Jews and stress that they cannot be trusted.”

Commenting on the recent changes in the region, Al-Jindy described the importance of recognizing the parallels between “the era of the Khaiber battle” and “contemporary times.”

Al-Jindy also seemed to suggest that the series will have a global effect. “I think it is time to expose them [the Jews] even in America itself. I am confident that the United States will realize that it paid a high price for supporting them.”

Predicting that he will be accused of anti-Semitism after the series airs, Al-Jindy added, “The charge of anti-Semitism is an outdated trend, and in fact it is a lie that Jews use against anyone who tries to expose their naked truth and their conspiracies.”

“They have already accused me of anti-Semitism when I presented The Wandering Jew,” Al-Jindy added. “Therefore, I don’t care for the accusation.” Al-Jindy’s play, The Wandering Jew about the 1967 war, was banned in Egypt in the 1980s. 

Various Arab media has reported the names of Syrian and Egyptian actors selected to for the series, which is set to start film­ing next month. Media reports also indicate that the show will be marketed to Turkey, Spain, France, Malaysia and various Arab countries.
