Walid Rabah is a New Jersey-based Arab American publisher.

In 2002 Walid Rabah was accused of antisemitism after he published in his Arabic-language newspaper The Arab Voice excerpts from "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", an antisemitic forgery purporting to be the outline of a Jewish plot for world domination.[1][2] Rabah printed the excerpts to suggest Jewish culpability for the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and The Pentagon;[3] Rabah stated he printed them for "educational" purposes.[1][2] In a subsequent editorial written in his defense, Rabah argued that "there have been many objective studies written about 'The Protocols' and not all of the authors agree that it is historically false" and "some major writers in the Arab nation accept the truth of the book."[4]
