A columnist for the Saudi Arabian daily newspaper Al-Riyadh has finally uncovered the cornerstone of the Jewish plot for world domination. It is Switzerland. Yes, the entire nation of Switzerland is apparently a Jewish plot.
Writing on September 4, Fahd 'Amr Al-Ahmadi pointed out that over the past four centuries, Europe has experienced numerous major wars, and yet Switzerland sat there right in the middle completely unscathed. At the same time, Switzerland refused to join any major international alliances or organizations (it only became a UN member in 2002).
The conclusion for Al-Ahmadi is simple: Switzerland must be the "safe haven where the [Jews'] wealth can be guarded against the wars they themselves spark," a safe haven spoken of in the czarist blood libel The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
For those in the West who naively believe that holocaust-enducing anti-Semitism is a thing of the past, blood libels such as The Protocols are actually an increasingly prominent part of political discourse in the Middle East. So much so that major Arab newspapers reference The Protocols as thought it were common knowledge fact that the Jews are planning a global takeover. And to them, it is.
Of course, Al-Ahmadi's reasoning ignores the subhuman treatment of the Jews throughout all those wars during which their wealth was supposedly piling up and being guarded in Switzerland. A sane person may wonder why such powerful and wealthy Jews, capable of turning a whole nation into their private assistant, did not use some of that money and power to protect themselves from expulsion, forced conversion, pogroms and genocide.
But anti-Semites rarely allow the facts of history to get in the way of a good Jew-bashing story.
