A Lebanese researcher recently claimed that the Jews “buy wars in which to embroil other nations.”

The interview with the researcher, Imad Rizq, aired in April on the Iranian Al-Alam television channel and was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

“Zionist ideology, which is based on Jewish-Talmudic thought, relies upon the following course of action: It creates a friend, and later turns against him,” claimed Rizq.

“This is what happened in WWII, when the Russian Stalin and the U.S. defeated Hitler and Fascism. So there were two victorious parties. But the U.S. dragged Russia into the notion of a Cold War, in the service of its financial interests.”

“This is the notion that the world thrives on constant conflict. The Jews have always created existential crises for the others, so that these crises would enable them to survive,” he argued.

“So the Cold War was invented by the Zionist lobby hiding behind the U.S. administration,” said Rizq.

“The Khazar Jews on the Caspian Sea, for example, would always pay the Soviets and the Russian empire. They would buy wars in which to embroil other nations. The Jews would always weaken the other nations and then come to their rescue,” he went on to claim.

MEMRI has exposed several televised segments in which Arab television has blamed Israel or the West for trouble in the Muslim world.

One of these instances included a report on an Egyptian television channel citing an episode of “The Simpsons” as proof that the United States had conspired to cause the Arab Spring revolutions.

An Egyptian sheik claimed in a recent television interview, also translated by MEMRI, that the Arab Spring was a Western plot to divide the Arab world into multiple fragments.

Another video translated by MEMRI showed a play which aired on Egyptian television and in which the Israeli Mossad was blamed for the Arab Spring
