The Egyptians are Considering Suing the Jews for Gold the Israelites Took from Egypt According to the Egyptian weekly, Al-Ahram al-'Arabi, Nabil Hilmi, faculty of law dean at the University of Al-Zaqziq, "is planning a law suit in a Swiss court in order to take back the stolen Egyptian gold from the Pharaohnic era which was stolen by the Jews when they went out of Egypt thousands years ago". Hilmi said that in light of the fact the Jews have been saying recently that they created the Egyptian culture and that they are asking from Switzerland for the property of Jews who died during World War II, a lawsuit will be submitted to the Swiss court. Hilmi said that "the stealing of gold is understandable. It is a clear theft of resources and treasures of a hosting country, which goes together with the Jews' morals and nature".

Jewish Conspiracy Theories

In the last part of an article dealing with Israel's role in the Iraqi war, the writer talks about the alleged "phenomenon" of Israeli Jews buying real estate in Iraq:

"The Israeli presence in Baghdad became the Iraqi talk of the day. Prayer leaders and preachers of mosques warned the Iraqi citizens and forbade them from selling or renting their properties to Jews who are filtering in under false names and identities. Rumors spread in Baghdad about the efforts of a persistent Israeli to buy important institutions and real estate properties in sensitive areas in the capital Baghdad for a higher price than its real value, which in turn raised the real estate prices in general. The Iraqis are interpreting the intention of some Jews to buy real estate in Baghdad as an organized intention to penetrate into the Iraqi economic life in order to control it in the future. They said that this phenomenon reminds us of what happened to the Palestinians in 1948 and the similar ways that were used in order to steal their land".

Comparison between Zionism and Nazism

"The experience of Europe after World War II exists always and ever in spite of the fact that there were circumstances that pushed the Germans to wave the flags of Nazism, which intersect the Sharonic terror we witness in the occupied territories. . .

. . . Actually it (ed. note: Hamas) is a victim of the reality of the occupation which carries out daily terror, which we saw only in Fascist regimes . . ."

Relations between Israel\the Zionist lobby and America

"The USA is not serious in its effort to put an end to the Palestinian suffering and to build their independent and sovereign state. In addition, Mr. George Bush is pointing out to the Jewish lobby's power and is aspiring to winning in the American presidency elections in another term. He is not ready to lose the Jews' voices and is making efforts to gain their support, even if it is on the account of the different Arab problems. . ."

". . .The political decision in Washington is not a pure property of the Americans, but a property that belongs to the Jewish lobby's organizations. . .

Here is the question: "from where does the Jewish lobby take all this power inside of America? And what are the roots that created this hidden power in spite of the fact that the Jewish colony of immigrants is no more than 3% of the USA population?"

"The Jews' properties and activities definitely provide them with influential power in the American society, and this provides Israel the automatic American support!"
