A former top Palestinian official cited the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a forged text produced in Russia at the turn of the last century that purports to outline Jewish plans to take over the world, as proof that the world economy is controlled by Jews.
“Global Judaism, which controls the world’s financial markets, constitutes a virus and a plague which strikes at the entire world,” said Dr. Fouad Bseiso, the former governor of the Palestinian Monetary Authority, according to a translation of his comments in a TV interview provided Thursday by the Middle East Media Research Institute.
“What was written in the 4th protocol of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion [titled ‘The destruction of religion by materialism’] is now being implemented on the world’s economy through the global Jewish hegemony over the world’s financial markets, he said.
The former official, who was speaking Tuesday to al-Quds TV, which is affiliated with Gaza-based terror group Hamas, said Jewish control of the markets is what led to the global financial crisis eight years ago.
“Jews control the rise and fall of the prices of commodities and are the number one beneficiaries of fluctuations in the world’s financial markets. This was proven by the global financial crisis of 2007-2008,” he said.
“They do it by inventing economic tools, bonds and financial derivatives which absorb most of the Arab savings, Bseiso added.
