And wouldn't you know it, a little research into who these foreign bankers are: Jews.
I have a problem with this statement for a number of reasons.... one is on principle; the other is less subjective.
1) For crying out loud. Does it matter what faith, creed, tribe, or belief the person ripping you off has? What the hell difference does it make?
I know those victimized by the events are eager to cast blame and aspersion on those responsible, but let's blame the actual people doing the
misdeeds... not who their parents were.
2) By making it appear that the fact the "Jew" bankers are the problem, does it not exonerate all non-Jew bankers? This makes little sense. The
problem has nothing to do with their heritage, it has to do with greed... which, last time I checked - apparently knows no color, religion, gender, or
As far as the Icelandic people borrowing money to stabilize their currency, let us not forget, "they" did not borrow anything... their reserve bank
did that (claiming no choice in the matter), and with the full approval and eager cooperation of other nation's central banks who saw the opportunity
(as usual) for profit from a desperate borrower.
The issue here is the sad truth that people 'grant' authority to others to govern over and take control their affairs. When these 'trustees' abuse
that trust, or handle it with incompetence, they seem to think they can simply pass the blame onto those who trusted them... sorry folks... that is
not reality... that's politics.
No nation should ever again be so stupid as to allow their economy to become a matter of political expedience for people who are held free of
consequences for their opportunistic and predatory schemes.
Some simply refuse to learn the lesson because it's easier to be a 'victim wronged' than to admit the risk was never worth taking.... the banks around
the world are one big happy family... and you and I are not part of it... (generally speaking.) What actions they take to prop each other up is not
for our benefit.... it is for their own.
The issue here is not one of fault... but blame. If you want someone to blame, everyone, from island to island, from continent to continent, from
every corner of the globe - deserves blame. Trust is the only thing wealth can operate in.... but we have allowed that trust to become a font of
revenue for middlemen who offer no value for their services, and are allowed to do so because they are very nearly a globally-legislated monopoly that
no one dares challenge. As if their 'economic' religion were beyond scrutiny... and their high priests, infallible.
If you give anyone money, you have given it - it is gone. The risk is - will you get it back? Don't blame the people of Iceland because the trust in
the banks was misplaced, yours was too. They did not profit from the debacle.... they are not "ahead of the game" anymore than you are.
