Jordanian Columnist: ‘Jews Control the World Through Money, Media and Women’

June 20, 2013 10:39 am 10 comments

Column by Rashad Abu Daoud in Jordan's Addustour newspaper.

A leading Jordanian newspaper published a column last week in which it was claimed that “Jews control the world through money, media and women.”

The article, first spotted  by anonymous pro-Israel blogger Elder of Ziyon, appeared in Addustour and was written by one of the paper’s columnists, Rashad Abu Daoud.

In it Abu Daoud argues the veracity of the The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, accuses Jews of “exploiting goys” and claims “it was through money that they [Jews] tempted Balfour to grant them a national homeland in Palestine.”

The article is ostensibly about Abu Daoud’s disenchantment with Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a leader whom he claims is a Jewish puppet used “in order to exploit him afterwards in the role he is supposed to play in the scheme to sow civil strife, the scheme that is being carried out right now in the Arab homeland.”

But Abu Daoud takes the occasion to dabble in anti-Jewish conspiracy theories and other anti-Semitic intrigue. He writes: “Despite all that has been said about it and the attempts to cast doubt about its authenticity, what has been going on in the world, specifically in our Arab homeland and its surroundings, seems like an implementation of what’s in the Protocols to the letter.”

Abu Daoud further claimed that many influential women in the world  “are Jewish or gentiles who were exploited in the service of the Zionist enterprise.”

Elder of Ziyon points out that Abu Daoud is no “crackpot,” citing his extensive resume, which includes jobs as managing editor of the Khaleej Times, assistant managing editor of Basma magazine in Jordan, editorial director of the Journal magazine (Saudi Arabia.) He is also the author of several books.

  • Money, media, and women.
    Amazing revelation as in the authors world, women are only worthy (read smart) enough to breed.

    In the rest of the world we read the equal creativity and worth of women, their uniqueness and blessing they are to us.

    As for media, are we to believe the authors anti sementic brothers are puritans in media usage, never telling lies or being racist?

    And money. If Jews are good with money and Arabs, and the rest of world fails at monetary honesty and discipline, as history seems to indicate, then the author is playing sandpits. ‘Not fair – you’re winning.’

    On that score – grow up.

  • Thank you, dear Daphna Yee!

    Most all Jews are clearly aware of the anti-Semites of the world, and have been for as long as we Jews have been extant Nowadays, they are watched closely (probably moreso than they imagine!). While our various protective agencies do not always respond, let me assure you: very little passes by unnoticed. Even shrimps such as Adolf Hitler were watched from the early days of his reign, but too few, Jewish or non-Jewish, took him seriously. That was a mistake for which Jews paid in blood. But from that mistake came, among oter things, the establishment of the State of Israel. Small in size, it’s defense force is well recognized by friends and foes alike as one of the finest in the world and, to put it bluntly, not one to “fu– around with”.

    Jews everywhere in the world know that they are not isolated. Jewish agencies exist for the precise purpose of aiding and protecting Jews in virtually every facet of their lives. They don’t make much “noise”, but we Jews are clearly aware of their existence. They protect women, children, and ALL Jews in need of help. ..and protection,

    Just the same, it’s nice to know there are people like you close by.

    Thank you!

  • Ha! All your women are belong to me!

    When you have nothing better to do you pick on the Jews.
    Anisemitism is nothing but a character flaw.

  • Whenever I read about such people as Abu Daoud I feel confident we, the Jewish people are blessed and lucky to have such people for enemies, G-d forbids that people like these should be our friends. As Einstein once said, intelligence has its limits while stupidity has none.

    • Sonia Willats

      :-) To expend so much energy on hating another, and rationalising it, is indeed a very limited world view, and a stupidity that trips up the perpetrator of the hatred.

      I would think most Jews pray and watch with deep concern the suffering all over the Middle East caused by the waves of extremist hatred one sect toward another that is so falsely termed the “Arab Spring.”

      Watching the protests in Turkey on international television, the PRESS seemed to be fanning the flames, and wanting more action… but now they will blame the Jews again! Yet Israel is the greatest victim of this press incitement.In short, Abu Daoud can’t be too bright in spite of his resume.

  • WOMEN?
    YES MAYBE WITH BARBRA STREISAND SINGING AVINU MALKENU AND MEMORIES!

  • paul furman

    Why would any one put credibility into the mouths of known Jew haters & anti democratic inividuals & groups

    There is not one Islammic democratic country or culture in this world including Turkey.

    The BDS movement has proven itself to be Anti Semitic & anti democratic. They go after Isreal but not one dictatorship in this world.

    Thery are made up of silly people not sreious ones. All emotions & no brains.

    • You are foolish to so readily dismiss anti-Semites. I can assure you that those people are VERY SERIOUS about their goal of destroying Israel and all the Jews that they can. BDS is not a game for them and the acceptance of anti-Semitic, and especially anti-Israel, lies and propaganda is spreading rapidly throughout the world.

    JNS.org – The 75th anniversary of the premiere of “Gone with the Wind” on Dec. 15 presents an opportunity to examine the Jewish influence on one of the most popular films of all time. That influence starts with the American Civil War epic’s famed producer, David O. Selznick. Adjusted for inflation, “Gone with the Wind” remains the highest-grossing movie ever made. It earned the 1939 Academy Award for Best Picture, the same honor another Selznick film, “Rebecca,” garnered in 1940. Selznick [...]

    JNS.org – It was an era of steel strings, guitar heroes, and storytellers—high on heroin, rebellious. Outlaw country music, the hallmark of Nashville’s powerful and angry music scene of the 1970s, was the brew of greats such as Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Townes Van Zandt. But there is another, little-known music hero of that era: Daniel Antopolsky. A Jewish lad from Augusta, Ga.—the son of immigrants who settled in the south and ran a hardware store on Main Street—the [...]
