On a widely watched Egyptian TV news show, a prominent professor taught that Jews prepare Passover matzah, which he claimed is a common practice among the ultra-Orthodox.
Dr. Fouad M. AbdelWahed, an Egyptian professor of Hebrew at King Saud University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, revived an ancient blood libel, saying in a June 13, 2019 episode of the anti-Semitic Egyptian TV show “Blue Line” that on Passover, some Jews eat matzah that contains human blood.
He claimed that some members of the Jewish community donate blood for the purpose of preparing the matzah and that the practice – which he said is limited today to “extremist” Haredi Jews – was once widespread among all Jews.
The anti-Semitic professor added that eating the matzah has negative health effects. The show aired on Egypt’s Channel 2 TV.
