That little insurgency in Iraq is a Jewish thing

For those who believe wars should unfold in some uniformed cookie cutter fashion, get a load of this:

Iraq's parliament speaker Thursday accused "Jews" of financing acts of violence in Iraq in order to discredit Islamists who control the parliament and government so they can install their "agents" in power.

Mahmoud al-Mashhadani hinted that the Americans and Israelis did not want to see officials of Sunni and Shi'ite parties running the country because "this is not their agenda."

Mr. Speaker is a Sunni. On second thought, maybe wars in the Middle East do have some symmetry, no matter how many women and children you hide behind when you fight, we know who forced you to take such unmanly action.

It'll be interesting if this latest conspiracy takes root here. (Via LGF)

Notice though on that dkos thread that you linked to the vast majority of people commenting seemed to think the original post was ridiculous.

The news about the Iraqi parliament speaker's comment is sad though.

Fair point about the comments

I think the speaker just doesn't want to face some cold, hard facts.

Of course, the speaker has some proof, dosen't he?

Sam, I'm sure the speaker is satisfied in believing that if he says it's the Jews bankrolling the insurgency, then he has all the proof he needs.
