"Inter-faith Dialogue", Egyptian-style

An Egyptian “researcher” holds forth on Jews, blood, and “matza”:

Muhammad Al-Buheiri: This man proved scientifically and objectively… He’s an academic, who heads the department of Jewish history at the Israeli Bar-Ilan University. We are not talking about an amateur, a fraud, or someone looking to get famous. We are talking about an academic, who follows scientific and objective principles. He reached the conclusion that there was indeed a group of extremist Jews, who used to slaughter Christian children, and to collect their blood in order to make the Passover matza. It had to be a child who had not reached puberty. They would abduct him, and put him into a barrel designed for this purpose, which had holes in the sides at the place of the arteries. They would insert iron skewers through the barrel, and make the boy’s blood flow that way. Then they would collect the blood, and use it for Passover. Some sources in Jewish halacha say that preparing a single matza on Passover this way is sufficient for all the Jews. Others believe that such matzos should be prepared in each country separately.

Interviewer: They sacrifice Christian children… When was it? In what century?

Muhammad Al-Buheiri: It has been substantiated since the Middle Ages.

Interviewer: Since then?

Muhammad Al-Buheiri: Yes.

Interviewer: My question is: Until when did it happen?

Muhammad Al-Buheiri: That is the question we must ask. Have the Jews, with all their extremists, especially in Israel, given up… Have they given up these customs and religious rituals, which are important to them? There were very many cases. There were similar cases in Syria. There were similar cases in 1700 and 1800. Such children were abducted.

Interviewer: I have another question. Who are the people who prepare these matzos? Are they Jewish extremists or moderates? As a researcher specializing in inter-faith dialogue, do you believe this still occurs in Israel? I’m rephrasing the question.

Muhammad Al-Buheiri: I believe it does, because these are religious rituals.


Interviewer: In some Israeli newspapers and media, we have seen that they take an Israeli hen or rooster, and shed its blood, and they say that this is a form of Israeli sacrifice that brings blessing. We have witnessed this on several occasions. The question is why this important book, Bloody Passover, provoked the Jews throughout the world, who said that this renowned Israeli historian is anti-Semitic.

Muhammad Al-Buheiri: First of all, we should be aware that the Jews always implement a rule they consider basic: A loud voice is capable of erasing the truth.

Interviewer: A loud voice?

Muhammad Al-Buheiri: Yes.

Interviewer: They are quite loud, aren’t they?

Muhammad Al-Buheiri: Precisely. If they attack somebody, they announce in the media and propaganda tools, which they control so skillfully, throughout the world… They turn the facts upside down. They turn the attacker into the attacked.

Interviewer: The media are controlled by the Jews.

Muhammad Al-Buheiri: The Jews have made great efforts to conceal the issue of the Passover blood. They even called it “blood libel.” In Jewish culture, this is called “blood libel” the lie about the use of Christian blood to prepare matzos.

Also, be wary of what you read in Wikipedia, the “people’s encyclopedia.”
