During the early twentieth century some 120,000 Jews lived in Algeria, part of a thriving Jewish community which once existed across North Africa.
Today, like in most other North African countries, none remain, having been driven out by an Arab campaign of discrimination, pogroms and mass-expulsion.
Perhaps they should probably consider themselves lucky, though, given footage showing how Algerian army recruits are drilled in the fine arts of shooting, slaughtering and, yes, skinning Jews.
In footage translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), soldiers of the Algerian National Gendarmerie can be seen marching to a chant which includes the following words:
"Oh, Arabs, sons of Arabs, march on and turn your guns towards the Jews in order to kill them [no kidding...!], to slaughter them and skin them!" (WATCH VIDEO)
