On June 20, 2016, the Qatari daily Al-Sharq published an anti-Semitic poem titled "The Plot of the Jews." The poem, by Dr. Khaled Hassan Hindawi, appeared on the last page of a special Ramadan supplement. It accuses the Jews of spreading corruption and of hatching plots against the Muslims by means of their "venomous serpents," such as Egyptian President 'Abd Al-Fattah Al-Sisi, Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-'Abadi and the leader of the Houthi Rebels in Yemen, 'Abd Al-Malik Al-Houthi.

The following is a translation of the poem:

 "The Plot of the Jews

 "The Jew's plot against the Muslims

"Their corruption is spread through ideas and bombardments

"With planes and with sharpened tongues

"[They send forth] venomous serpents

"That penetrate our fortress in times of distress.

"Let me list these serpents, they are Bashar and Sisi

"And Houthi and Haider Al-'Abadi"
