ADL:Muslim papers mix hatred of Jews, U.S.

NEW YORK, May 11 (UPI) -- Arab and Muslim newspapers show a "dangerous cross-pollination" between hatred of the United States and hatred of Jews, a monitoring group said Tuesday.

The Anti-Defamation League monitors the press in Muslim countries. National Director Abraham Foxman said that anti-Semitism is nothing new, but the combined attacks have escalated.

"This is not surprising," Foxman said, "For what better way to engender hatred for America than by tapping into the wellspring of anti-Jewish hate that already exists on the Arab street?"

The group cites cartoons and commentaries from newspapers in Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain and Qatar. The report says that the United States is generally depicted as an imperialist held captive by Jews, generally depicted as greedy, demonic and hooknosed.
