much more politically correct of course (as it leaves open the oft used defense of "I'm not antisemitic, just anti Zionist").
However, as is so often the case, the antisemites and particularly arab enemies of Israel & Zionism falsely accusing Zionism of doing precisely what they really are doing themselves (in this case massive financial investment in international financial markets) and what is crazy is that anyone with half a brain can see the evidence of this all around them! Cities skylines across US & Europe are dominated by Arab owned buildings, sports teams have Arab companies as owners and investors, and even the British Airways Concorde model you saw as you drove into Heathrow Airport is today an Airbus in Emirates livery, but then the airport that is the gateway to Britain, is itself now part owned by an Arab state!
In fact Arab money owns or has stakes all over the world in banks, stock markets, hotels, sports teams, iconic buildings, industry...the list is endless. here's just a few examples:
The Chrysler building is a US icon...it's owned by The United Arab Emirate!; You'll find arab investment in London's new landmark Shard as well; Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabir Al-Thani is Qatar’s prime minister and head of the Qatar Investment Authority, a $50 billion investment fund that bought 20 percent of the London Stock Exchange (he's probably not a Zionist!); the Dubai Investment Group owns a 19.9 percent stake in Nasdaq, the second largest securities exchange in the U.S.; Insports Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan (pictured below) owns Manchester City (current English league champions); Qatar just bought a 20% stake in Heathrow Airport, and this month Qatar was the top sovereign wealth buyer of European property in the last 12 months, spending 3.5 billion euros ($4.3 billion) on eight deals including the London Olympic athlete’s village and a mall on Paris’ Champs Elysees; Harrods was owned by Egyptian Mohamed Fayed, now Qatar holdings own this iconic British store, as well as Miramax Movies, stakes in Canary Wharf Group, & Paris Saint-Germain
football club! Dubai International Capital holdings include Travelodge, Merlin Entertainments , Doncasters, Mauser, Alliance Medical and Almatis as well as having major stakes in Daimler and Sony...the list is unending !
Israel is an economically strong but tiny state. To suggest it is dominating the world's financial market is absurd. OPEC alone has more impact on a daily basis than Israel has had in its 65 year existence! When you fill your gas tank and it costs an absurd amount of money, it is the oil producers that decide the price of crude, not the Zionists. Chances are your money is going to Mid East owned companies every single day.
While the enemies of Israel divert your attention, the actual financial power lies elsewhere but the true impact and implications has not yet registered with an unwitting western public...but one day it will & in a big way!
