“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.
