During a show on the Turkey-based Muslim Brotherhood's Mekameleen TV, Egyptian TV host Mohammed Nasser said that until the advent of cinema, the Jews were the outcasts of the world and had an image of being despicable, stinky, greedy, miserly, shabby-clothed, and big-nosed. He used the example of Shylock from Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice, who demanded a piece of flesh from a man who could not pay back his loan. Nasser said that through cinema, the Jews were able to replace that image with the image of Muslims and Arabs. He also explained that in the 1930s, seven out of the eight movie companies were owned by Jews. The show aired on December 11, 2018.
