CNN image editor Mohammed Elshamy has withdrawn from the news organization after a network spokesman recently revealed a series of anti-Semitic tweets in 2011.
One of Elshamy's tweets is one that calls Jews "pigs" after it was two. In a bomb attack in Jerusalem in March 2011, 39 people were killed and injured.
"More than 4 Jewish pigs killed in #Jerusalem today by the explosion of the Palestinian bomb," he tweeted on March 23, 2011. This tweet spread in the social media sites on Thursday.
"Israel is the main enemy of the Egyptian people and will always remain, despite rulers licking Jewish legs." he wrote in another tweet.
The tweets were dug up by GOP agent Arthur Schwartz. [1
