Yesterday, we pointed out that that Arab Muslim world is a universe of dangerous conspiracy theories — most of which accuse the Jews/Israel of, well, everything, including IslamoNazi depredations.
At the very same time we have Barack Hussein Obama’s tortured explanations as to why his administration refuses to label Islamic terrorism as Islamic terrorism. Obama and the historically anti-Semitic State Department are opting for the black-hole label of Extremist Violence, as in—sarcasm alert—Extremist Mormon Violence, which as we all know is rampant.
Indeed, Obama and his courtiers of the left sound like spokesman for Hamas or the Muslim Brotherhood, and increasingly sound as deranged as the French Muslims who now claim, with a straight face, and with the obligatory Inshallahs thrown in, that the Charlie Hebdo and Kosher Supermarket massacres were not perpetrated by Muslims but by…
… shape-shifting Jews.
… not everyone is convinced that Al Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula (AQAP) was responsible for the attack, despite their claiming responsibility Wednesday. Some French Muslims instead believe “shape-shifting” Jews are to blame.
The Kalashnikovs, the identity cards the [killers] supposedly left behind, it was all staged,” a Muslim Parisian told the Daily Beast Tuesday. “It was a conspiracy designed by the Jews to make Muslims look bad. We’d rather just stay where we are.”
Another man, who only gave his name as “Mohamed” and gleefully noted that he sold drugs in the open in his gas station, told the daily that the attacks were “un complot,” or a conspiracy, on the part of the “magical Jews” from a “hybrid race of shape-shifters” who have extraordinary abilities.
“They know how to get in everywhere,” he said. “They are master manipulators.”
The bizarre response illustrates how common anti-Semitic conspiracy theories portraying Jews as being behind all sorts of global conspiracies are throughout the Muslim world.
It is not the first time Jews have been accused of possessing magical powers either. In May 2013, an Iranian leader said that Jews were “sorcerers” who manipulate the US government and media to their advantage.
An article on a popular Iranian news site around the same time posted an article claiming that “the [Jewish] people think that ruling over man, nature, and divine traditions can be achieved only by means of sorcery” and that “they believe that it is possible to conquer nature and control the world, and even to control God’s decisions, by using sorcery methods.”
