August 2012 Monthly Travel Photo: Saudi Airport Book Store

An airport book store is a good window into popular culture.  A foreigner would learn that American taste in books is limited between political manifestos, how to books, and soft/hidden pornography.  A trip to Saudi Arabia taught me the trinity of Saudi books is histories, religious, and anti-Semitism.

The two photos below are snapshots of blatantly anti-Semitic books.  The first one seems to be the fifth in a series of religious books while the second photo shows a standalone book.  Sadly, my Arabic is not what it should be so if anyone can translate I would be very grateful.
