On April 6, The Wall Street Journal published an article entitled:” Anti-Semitism and the Economic Crisis Many people still blame Jews for capitalism’s faults.“.
Following are some excerpts worth considering:
There are ample indicators of current anti-Semitic attitudes. A poll conducted recently in Europe by the Anti-Defamation League found 74% of Spaniards believe Jews “have too much power in international financial markets,” while 67% of Hungarians believe Jews “have too much power in the business world.” Here in America, the Web site of National Journal is hosting an “expert blog” by former CIA official Michael Scheuer, now a professor at Georgetown, complaining of a “fifth column of pro-Israel U.S. citizens” who are “unquestionably enemies of America’s republican experiment.” And over at Yahoo! Finance, the message board discussing Goldman Sachs is rife with comments about “Jew pigs” and the “Zionist Federal Reserve.”
So will the Jews come under attack? The existence of the Jewish state guarantees refuge for Jews around the world, but it carries with it its own risks. Hezbollah’s leader, Hassan Nasrallah, has said that if the Jews “all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them world-wide.” It’s a comment all the more chilling as Nasrallah’s Iranian sponsors are on the brink of making a nuclear bomb….
….It may yet be that the Jews escape the current economic crisis having only lost fortunes. But if not, there will have been no lack of warning about the threat. When Jews gather Wednesday night for the Passover Seder, we will recite the words from the Hagadah, the book that relays the Israelite exodus from slavery in Egypt: “In every generation they rise up against us to destroy us.” This year, they will resonate all the more ominously.
It is refreshing to see some of the press expose the blatant lies about the Jewish people controlling the finances of the world. The age old libel against the Jews, painting them as rapacious, greedy, money gathering people, needs to be exposed as a lie. There is nothing new and nothing true about the attempt by worldwide Jewry to take over the world.
In the late 1800s, The Protocols of the learned Elders of Zion was first published. It has since been proven that it is a fabricated hoax, infused with blatant plagiarism by Russian journalist Matvei Golovinski.
It is hard to tell how far the world will be willing to go in accusing the Jewish people of greedily controlling the planet, but as the sames diatribes are being spread, I cannot help but see a stage being built, or REBUILT I should say, for a world leader to incite the masses into hating my people.
A global crisis, a desperate world community, a charismatic leader and a scapegoat! the set is being built under our eyes and most people are still either closing their own eyes or looking the other way.
Sir Winston Churchill’s quote profoundly resonates in my heart: “A nation that forgets its past is doomed to repeat it.”
Let’s stand against the liers and their cohorts. Remember the past, so we won’t we repeat it!
I’m not sure if you will see this comment, since this is from an older post, but seeing the mention of this ‘Protocols’ gave me the chills. A guy in my office, who is a bit of a conspiracy nut, started talking to me about this the other day. He told me to look it up and read it and that it would ‘change’ my outlook on Jews and Christianity. This is someone that attends a large local Christian church!
I am continuing to talk to him and try to get him to see how ridiculous and dangerous this line of thinking is. Your blog, website, and the books I have picked up from you have helped.
God Bless you, Olivier.
