Comments for entry Bank Shmank!
The stereotype of Jews as bankers is actually very harmful. Of course, there are some Jews in the banking business, just as there are Christians, Muslims, Atheists, and Satanists. But the traditional anti-Semitic slander is that the Jews CONTROL the banks. They say that there are Jews, like the Rothschilds, who actually control all the banks in the world, thereby having access to unbelievable amounts of money through various schemes, and then using that money to control governments all around the world.
Now... is it possible that there is a group of people who are doing that? I would say yes. But to say that it is "The Jews" is where the anti-Semitism comes in. And when you portray a small ethnic or religious group as the ones who are controlling everything, then they become the target whenever anything goes wrong. So, if the price of oil goes up, or a war starts somewhere, or there is terrorism, or there are shortages of food or what-have-you, they blame it on "The Jews".
You don't see people blaming things like this on the Hispanics, or the Catholics, or the English, or even the Chinese, Arabs, or Russians. These are all much larger and much more powerful groups than the Jews. But the whole idea of anti-Semitism is to hide the reality that other groups have much more power, and get everyone to focus on the Jews.
There's a God damed radio station in New York called WBAI. It is part of the Pacifica Network of several stations throughout the country. They are having a fund raiser, since it is listener sponsored, and every day I have been hearing show after show about how Israel is part of a plan to dominate the world. Israel becomes the enemy of all who suffer, of all who are indigenous, of all who seek progress. It is a total reversal of reality. Why the constant picking on the Jews? It is a sickness that is so deep in our society that most people cannot even see it even though it is right in front of all our faces day by day.
