New Anti-semitic Journal Issued in Casablanca; Jews Are Slandered

Download PDF for this date

A new anti-Semitic newspaper, published by the director of a newspaper banned by the Government, appeared today in Morocco. The first issue of the new publication, “Atiaf,” contained articles charging Moroccan Jews in responsible posts with showing favoritism toward co-religionists. A prominent article reported on a Jewish doctor on the staff of a hospital in a small town, Alcazarquivir, in northern Morocco. The article alleged that the doctor attended only to Jewish patients and allowed Moslems “to die of their illnesses.”
