Iran’s Press TV Claims American Jews Are “Incubating Another Hitler”

Press TV, Iran’s government-run English-language satellite news network, has taken its usual viciously anti-Semitic conspiracy theories a step further. It now claims not only that Jews are to blame for the Holocaust, but also that because Jews did not learn from their supposed wrongs in Nazi Germany that “American Zionists” are “incubating another Hitler.”

The November 9 article, “American Zionists incubating another Hitler,” was written by a Press TV columnist named M.I. Bhat, who also writes for the conspiratorial anti-Semitic website Veterans Today. The Press TV piece was additionally published two days earlier in Veterans Today under the title “Are American Jews incubating another Hitler?”

In both articles, Bhat claims that “American Zionists” control America’s “banks, Wall Street, media, Hollywood, markets, politicians, foreign policy, indeed the whole life of Americans.” The article also asserts that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were a “false flag” attack committed by “American Zionist Jews and Israel” to further their control of American foreign policy.

Bhat alleges it is “no more a ‘conspiracy theory’” to state that “American Congress and Senate, Governors and even City Mayors [sic] are totally and abjectly sold out, body and soul, to the American Zionists dollars.” He summarizes matter-of-factly that “America is enslaved by Israel.”

It is typical for Press TV to misleadingly present anti-Semites, both American and foreign, as serious and credible “experts” or “analysts.” Bhat, a retired geology professor from an Indian university, does not appear to have any credentials in the field of “international politics,” claiming only that such topics are his “main attraction” after geology.

Bhat makes no attempt to hide his conspiratorial thinking about the supposedly Zionist “Masters of the United States.” He claims this cabal controls “democracy itself” which has “been reduced to mere competition in securing Jewish funding and acceptance by Zionist media.”

Bhat does not stop there.

He alleges that Americans can trace “every misery” to “American Zionists banksters,” who spend their time “determining, dominating, and controlling every aspect of [Americans’] lives- social, moral, political judicial and economic.”

Bhat’s over-the-top conspiracy theories are actually quite typical of the anti-Jewish propaganda peddled by Press TV as legitimate news. However, Bhat then goes a step further, accepting the Nazi regime’s anti-Jewish conspiracy theories as historical fact and blaming the Jewish victims of the Holocaust for their fate.

He disturbingly concludes his article by implying another Holocaust is coming, this time to American Jews. Bhat writes, “how neatly this description [of how Jewish control and manipulation resulted in all of Germany’s ills] depicts the current state of affairs of the United States! …Zionists don’t seem to draw any lessons from their past actions and experiences.” Bhat asks, “If description above [sic] of the post-WWI Germany is what led the Germans to rally behind Hitler, should it then surprise Zionists or the world at large if America pops up its own Hitler?”

The article also features an image of the Nazi regime’s battle flag in which the swastika has been replaced with the Star of David.

Egyptian Conspiracy Reveals The Jews’ Latest Weapon: Pepsi


Okasha’s interpretation of the Pepsi ad in Cairo

The latest conspiracy theory coming out of Egypt suggests that Pepsi is owned by Jews and that the company is somehow being used to infiltrate the country. According to the conspiracy theory, Pepsi is an acronym for “Pay Every Pound for the Security of Israel.”

The absurd conspiracy theory recently surfaced on the Egyptian television talk show, Egypt Today. The program’s host, Tawfik Okasha, who is known for his opposition to the Muslim Brotherhood, said:

What is the corporation of Pepsi? It is one of the largest and most important corporations owned by the Jewish Zionists… the Torah of Ezra tells them [the Jews] you can’t enter heaven before you rule Egypt.

Okasha then mentioned a recent Pepsi ad campaign geared toward football fans in the streets of Cairo, saying that the ad is proof that Israel and the Jews are trying to infiltrate Egypt.

Okasha elaborated on this idea yesterday on his Twitter account, where he posted a photo of the Pepsi ad with circles around the jersey numbers of the football players. The numbers, according to Okasha, represent a coded message indicating when the Jews will bring back the Muslim Brotherhood to rule Egypt.

According to Okasha, “The motto of Pepsi corporation is Pay for Israel and its owners are Jews who support the Muslim Brotherhood…anyone who wouldn’t understand the [below] ad is stupid!!”

No conspiracy seems too ludicrous for those who seek to blame Egypt’s problems on the Jews.

Saudi Newspaper Claims September 11 Attacks Manufactured By Zionists

On the 12th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks last week, a Saudi newspaper published an editorial describing the operation as part of a “Jewish plan to destroy the world.”9-11-al-riyadh-conspiracy

The article, published in Al-Riyadh and titled “A calm discussion of September 11,” suggests the attack “was employed for the best interest of Israel to terminate the Palestinian case and to impose the idea of the Jewish state.”

The article was written by Rakan Al Majali, former Minister of State for Media Affairs and Communications in Jordan, for Al-Riyadh, a popular Saudi daily newspaper.

Suggesting that the U.S. government is controlled by a Zionist lobby, the article further asserts, “The gang of the Zionist right wing conservatives which control American decisions used this incident to achieve its ambition in using the American military power to control the world starting with our region.”

Al Majali, who views 9/11 to be the reason behind all the current conflicts in the Middle East, concludes:

In summary, the terrorist crime on September 11 was… a result of the planning and execution of the shrewdest ones of the right-wing conservatives headed by [Dick] Cheney and [Donald] Rumsfeld. They were backed by a hateful racist Zionist malice which found an opportunity to attack our [Arab] nation… to mark a beginning of the Jewish plan to destroy the world.

In the 12 years since the September 11 terrorist attacks, conspiracy theories surrounding the attacks have become an entrenched propaganda industry. This article demonstrates the continuing evolution of these conspiratorial narratives in a country where 15 of the hijackers came from.
