Greek Bishops Blame the Jews for Financial Problems

Greece’s fiscal and social problems have complex roots – unless you’re Greek Orthodox bishop Metropolitan Seraphim of Piraeus, whose explanation takes just three words to summarize: Blame the Jews.

Semites such as “Rockefeller, Rothschild and Soros control the international banking system that controls globalization,” the Metropolite said this week on Greece’s most-watched morning TV show, according to JTA. There is “a conspiracy to enslave Greece and Christian Orthodoxy” by Zionists, Jewish bankers like Baron Rothschild, and Freemasons,” the clergyman said.

It’s the oldest line in the Christian book, blame the Jews.

Okay I will give him the fact that those guys do have overwhelming and Orwellian power over the world media, government, and finances but how can he possibly blame Jews for the actions of a few billionaires who just happen to be Jewish?

There are plenty of poor Jews and oppressed Jews, I am sure there are many things about Hitler’s financing that we just do not know, but to claim that an entire people based on their religion are to blame for this crisis is absolute psycho talk.

This bishop should be ashamed of himself, if the church knows what is best they would purge themselves of him and others like him. This whole bigotry and scapegoat crap is getting really old.

Oh man. I guess they were right. The Jews ARE the chosen people! Chosen to receive blame for all the evils of the world.

Joking aside, maybe it's time Jews got out of the banking business and took on something more low profile before the world starts to sympathize with Hitler. It seems that during every economic crisis people link their problems to the Jewish race. The bishop might want to look to his Socialist government and start questioning their past decisions. If nearly half the country works for the government, anyone can see that the remaining half in the private sector couldn't possibly keep up with the taxes and social programs provided to them. If you keep giving away crazy benefits, paid vacations and holidays, so on and so forth, it will only take a straw to eventually break the camel's back. I could be wrong of course, but hey, it's just an opinion.

Blame the Jew... It's a litany that predates the existence of the Fed, by several hundred years.

When in doubt, blame the Jew. Why? 'cause it'll find fertile ground every single time. Haters will materialize out of thin air screaming things like "Kill the Jews" "Gas the Jews", or assorted other phrases aimed at "punishing" them for their purported crimes...

Zionism? Oddly enough, this sort of "blame the Jews" hysteria predates Zionism, too...

Couldn't Be The Spending

The Jews? How tedious and predictable -- and wrong.

It's obviously the Gypsies.

(He did manage to get a dig in on Freemasons, however, so bonus conspiracy points for him.)

N.B. Half the good bishop's Wikipedia page is now dedicated to this incident. Somehow I feel we may be hearing more from this guy down the road.

I'm not sure what to make of this. Seems kinda strange that a current religious figure would want to blame the jews for this mess. Smells like fascism may not be dead after all.

Rockefeller is not Jewish. This guy needs to do his homework.

Might as well blame the Jews for Greek financial problems. After all, they're responsible for everything else - global warming, the death of the dinosaurs, global cooling, hammertoes, loss of the ozone, beach erosion, and altering the Gulf Stream.


Those Jews.
