In a letter to SIEL (Salon International de l'Edition et du Livre) Casablanca Book Fair, the Wiesenthal Centre Director for International Relations, Dr. Shimon Samuels, commended its Director Dr. Hassan El Ouazzani.
Samuels stated that, "after six years of monitoring the SIEL of Casablanca and its sister Arab Book Fairs, for hate on the display shelves, we were delighted to receive your inspiring response. This was truly in the spirit of Article 5.6 of the SIEL exhibitors’ contract: 'Publications displayed may not violate:
- public decency
- the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Morocco or its religious precepts
- public sensitivity' "

Paris, 7 February 2017

The  Simon Wiesenthal Centre Director for International Relations, Dr. Shimon Samuels, expressed revulsion that “today's Germany could be associated through sport with the blatant sanctification of Jew-killers, thereby evoking the shadows of the 1936 Nazi Olympics and the 1972 Munich Olympics atrocity.”

The German representative to "Palestine", Peter Beerwerth, has announced 'his pride' in financing the Palestinian sports agency responsible for naming all stadiums, tournaments and clubs in honour of the terrorist murderers of Jews.  Among them is the organizer of the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre of the Israeli athletic team who was also responsible for the murder of two American diplomats.

This blood libel could have been drawn from the ravings of Hitler to the genocidal Charter of Hamas.”
