I've always been a conspiracy theory buff. I don't buy into them but love to research 'em.
Lately I've been looking around at the 9/11 conspiracies. They are just the latest in a tradition of people not accepting the common wisdom (which is a good thing) and taking leaps of faith and constructing facts to build more questions than answers.
There has always been something that has made my scratch my head. Why are so many of these tales threaded with ethnic Jews as the center of the web?
I've scoured the net looking for a credible origin to this anti-Semitic theme. Most forms of racism and classism make sense to me. I get the xenophobic instincts that drive people to rebuke others that look different. I cannot seem to get to the bottom of the Evil Jew myth.
From 9/11 back to the Knight's Templars, there seems to always be a Jewish conspiracy at work. My first guess was Christian propaganda, yet it seems more ethnic than religious.
Chime in and help me with this one.
Why do the anti-Semites and kooky theorists often appear to be the same people?
