Palestinian Arabs and other anti-Israel and antisemitic Arabs are seething over two tweets by Saudi writer Saud al-Fawzan, a columnist for the Saudi Al Asharq newspaper.
Al-Fawzan’s first tweet said:
> I rented furniture from a Jewish store, and when my flat burned down, I met the owner of the store, who said (to his workers): “Furnish the flat on my account”. I regretted each time that I “paid a Riyal to save an Arab”“Pay a Riyal, save an Arab” was the name of a campaign of donations for the Palestinians, conducted in Saudi schools, organized by the Saudi government 30 years ago.
That tweet was met with a torrent of antisemitic replies, but not a small amount of support for al-Fawzan as well.
Then he tweeted:
> I am not the Jews’ lawyer, but truth must be said: Show me one Jew who killed a Saudi, and I will show you a thousand Saudis from ISIS and Al-Qaeda who killed their own kind with explosive belts.This received hundreds of very angry replies.
Arab media is picking up…
