In a TV interview, Jordanian sociologist Muhammad Ayasrah said that “Judaism has been a hateful and racist religion throughout history,” and that “the Jews are known to be the racists or even the founders of racism in the world.”

Ayasrah, who was presented by Prime TV as the “Director of Foreign and International Relations in the Arab Union for Academic, Scientific, and Cultural Skills,” further said that “if we examine the history of the Jews, we find that it is a history full of killing, plundering, usurping, and racism—and abhorrent, murderous and loathsome racism at that.”

The interview aired on March 5 on the Jordanian Prime TV station.
