    There is a conspiracy theory blaming a certain group of peope for the ills of the world.   One of the latest "theories" is that the Jewish people "control" Hollywood, the banks, and are the "elite" of American society.   Another "theory" indicate that the Jewish people are responsible for the European situation of African and Asian immigration to its shores and the so-called demise of "European civilization".    Are these conspirists mad?   Yes, I think so.   What do you think of such "theories" ?  I am totally aghast and speechless at this !   I have NEVER heard anything so blatantly ILLOGICAL in my life!  Will this INANE INSANITY ever end!

      This is hardly a new theory.  Jews have been the scape goats for Europeans for centuries.  They were blamed for things from the Black Plague to the collapse of Germany following WWI and often with dire consequences. … scapegoats … _jews.html

      The peak of this scape goating has come in the last century and a half.  The anti-Jewish Russian government poduced a book that was intended to inflame anti-Jewsih hatred.  It was rapidly translated into several languages and published widely by Jew haters the world over.  Today Muslims governments and madrasahs in places like Saudi Arabia and Iran teach the ideas in that book as fact. … rs_of_Zion … -children/

        I know, another "disciple" regarding this insidiousness is no other than David Duke, ex-klansman who espouses this inanity about so-called Jewish supremacy!

          The Klan, The Nazis, White Supremacists, Nation of Islam all have perpetuated hatred of Jews.  It is difficult to understand but that hatred still exists.

      Delusional could describe many of the views in mainstream politics.

      Not a new theory. It's been around for as long as I can remember.

      As far as I can see, all conspiracy theory comes from people who have a very limited view of life. They also tend to be limited in terms of complex processing, plus have a chip on their shoulder about their own lack of success. Sometimes, they tend to have gotten a raw deal (through no fault of their own) and can't see the bigger picture because their worlds are so small.

          Reality Bites, you obviously don't know what a conspiracy theory is... smile

          A conspiracy theory is a theory about a group of people (as in group - not a single individual) who are doing or planning something that is hidden from everybody else.

          How does my personal opinion which is open for the world to read become a conspiracy theory? smile smile smile

    People have always been delusional.  We just hear about them more often.
    It's incredible what people allow themselves to believe.

    It is amazing what some people will come up with to forward their own agenda. Unfortunately this is nothing new in human history. It's always easier to blame "those people" (whomever they may be) for the perceived ills of a society rather than admit one's own responsibility or inability to deal with the problems at hand. This sort of bigotry always has a hidden agenda that, when discovered, shows those banging the drum loudest to be up to no good. It's the old "straw man" argument when you accuse some group of doing the nasty things that you would be doing if society would let you. These people depend on fear and ignorance to further they're ends. The only way to defeat this "inane insanity" is to educate the population at large how other peoples and cultures are just as valid and deserving of respect as our own. It also is easy to tell who is propagating such hatred by how they view education. Those who advocate restricting education or closing educational institutions outright are most likely the same ones trying to replace such institutions with their own twisted take on the world around them.

    'The Jewish Conspiracy' is a giant conflation to divert eyes away from a very real conspiracy that cares little for racial and religious division - the network of banking families that control the world only care about power. They have many tools at their disposal, and one of them is 'Zionism', a cross-religious movement that argues that the Jewish people have a right to the land of Israel.

    This 'right' is oft disputed, but I won't get into that here, but the most powerful Zionists have a record of chasing this 'right' through violence. The West's almost fanatic protection of Israel is example of this, despite their vast incursions into civil liberties and imperialism across the middle-east, and threats against non-aggressive countries. Under the precedent of 'protecting Israel', peaceful or only mildly dangerous countries have been invaded and their democratically elected politicians outed and replaced by dictators. Any objector can simply be labeled an 'anti-semite'. The gradual effect has been to make the middle-east a very unstable area of the world, and excuses NATO military occupation of those countries. This allows them to hold resources such as oil and opium for distribution back home - all in the name of 'protecting Israel'.

    The Zionists are also the ones who propagate the truly racist conspiracies that focus on the Jews specifically so as to paint any criticism of Israel as anti-semitic and prevent probes into the Zionists' practices. In short, Zionism is a great lie to the Jewish people that is being used to subjugate them even further.

      Innersmith - I find your conspiracies to be scary, indeed. I was reading this thread thinking that folks don't really think that way....until I came to your post. Of course, you could be joking. But, if you're not.....well....I just don't know how to respond to that line of thinking.

        If Innersmith is joking I don't get it. If he's not he's at least proved Darwin wrong; a species can regress.

        Howard, you may find them a little scary but that doesn't mean that their isn't some truth in them. I DON'T believe that the Jews are responsible for the worlds ills, not at all, I certainly don't believe that Innersmith does either, he makes that perfectly clear . However, I do believe that the far right are, Bibi, being one of them, tricking and manipulating Jews into believing that they are being targeted, when they are not. You have no idea how many times I have been called an anti-semite when I speak out about the Israeli Govt. In the end I'm forced to admit that I'm descended from Jews, this is not anti-semitism, it is realism.

        This weekend I saw on the news that Israeli citizens are being given gas masks, GAS masks?! By the Israeli government, who, I might add, are suggesting that they will strike Iran without American backing, because Obama is not supporting them and they are are all at risk. This is one of the worst pieces of propaganda that I think I have ever witnessed in my lifetime. Shocking, Bibi, is offering out these gas masks because he is fear mongering and suggesting that because they have to strike on their own there will be retaliation. WHO is putting the Israelis at risk?

    This isn't really a new theory, in fact, wars have been caused by this very thinking.

    innersmiff is pretty right on here. Now we have the new media generated 'conspiracy culture', as anyone who would agree with that. The command is quicker than the eye.

    Why the Vietnam war? Why the Afghanistan war? Why the Iraq war? If one doesn't know, it is because of a conspiracy. Somebody knows.

    I am very hesitant in calling the race card but usually stuff like this has racial undertones.  Some might feel it is a good reason to hate Jews.

      Yes, they might. Which is exactly why men like Bibi should be reigned in.

    To think any theory that doesn't go along with the current way things are, is just a "conspiracy theory", is a big mistake. Personally, if you have facts, i'm more likely to believe you, or take interest in your theory, I guess that's why i'm not so big on religion, and more big on science.
