In an antisemitic column published January 10, 2018 in the Kuwaiti Al-Anba daily, Bassem Al-Shati, who is also a lecturer at the Religious Faith and Preaching department at Kuwait University, quoted extensively from the Quran to prove, he said, that the Jews are cheating, corrupt, miserable, aggressive, and envious murderers of the prophets and are also responsible for all the corruption and licentiousness in the world. He added that the Muslims must protect themselves against these traits in the Jews.

Following a series of low-magnitude earthquakes felt in Israel and neighboring countries in early July, Kamal Zakarneh, a columnist for the Jordanian daily Al-Dustour, wrote that the quakes may have been caused by the underground testing of nuclear or other weapons that Israel is developing. The weapons, he speculated further, may be intended to cause an artificial earthquake to topple Al-Aqsa, the Dome of the Rock and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
The following are excerpts from his column:

In a June 22, 2018 Friday sermon at the Lala Pasha Mosque in Damascus, Dr. Muhammad Ali Al-Malla said that the World Cup was part of a plot outlined in The Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion, in that it is distracting the Arabs and the Muslims from the defiling of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the bloodshed in Gaza. According to Al-Malla, "the Europeans have taken [it] upon themselves to distract the Arabs," and "you will never see... the U.S. or China" at the World Cup because "their responsibility lies elsewhere" – in the selling of weapons to the Muslims. The sermon was posted on the mosque's YouTube channel.
