Saudi Columnist: Switzerland's Neutrality Is Part Of Jewish Plot To Control World's Wealth – As In 'Protocols Of the Elders of Zion'

In his column in the Saudi daily Al-Riyadh, titled "The Swiss Secret," Fahd 'Amr Al-Ahmadi claimed that Switzerland's traditional neutrality was part of a Jewish plot to incite wars and control the world's wealth by means of the country's banks. He noted that this was in accordance with The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

Following are excerpts from his column: [1]

"In Europe, there have been dozens of brutal wars. Napoleon and Hitler invaded most of the continent, and two world wars burned up most of the countries. Nevertheless, no one attacked Switzerland, which for 500 years has remained an oasis of peace in the heart of a burning hell.

"These days, the world is uniting under economic, political, and military alliances. Nevertheless, Switzerland refuses to join any international alliance or organization, including the EU and the UN [sic]."[2]

"This isolation and absolute neutrality immediately bring to mind The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which discuss a 'safe haven' where the [Jews'] wealth [can] be guarded against the wars they themselves spark. They will work to concentrate the world's wealth [in this 'safe haven'] so that it becomes their delicious slice [of the world's wealth], for when they touch off the world revolution [that they are planning].

"In his book Pawns in the Game, William Guy Carr discusses the Jews' role in the rise of Napoleon and Hitler and their efforts to prevent an attack on Switzerland. In his book Secret World Government, Cherep[-Spiridovich] explains how world Jewry removed Switzerland from its plans to wreak anarchy and wars, so as to protect their money there. Thus, Switzerland gained a reputation as a safe haven in which to hoard the wealth of the goyim...

"Though I know this hypothesis seems fanciful, reality consistently supports it. Switzerland is the preferred destination for smuggled wealth, and has been since the 16th century. For 400 years, riches have been piling up there, including anonymous accounts, stolen funds, and capital which no one claims any longer. The main attraction of Switzerland is [its] neutrality and secrecy. The Swiss adopted the principle of neutrality in 1515, following their crushing defeat at the hands the French army... They are against any deviation from this principle, and even oppose the expression of any opinion or any solidarity with [a given cause].

"For example, have you ever heard a Swiss position on the invasion of Iraq, the siege on Gaza, or the bombings in New York? Even now, Switzerland refuses to join the UN, the EU, or NATO. Nor has it signed any extradition agreements or security information exchange agreements with any country (making it a paradise for third world tyrants). But the strangest thing of all is that Switzerland doesn't even have an army capable of initiating conflict with other [countries] – only a civilian defense force and a multitude of 'non-aggression' pacts!!

"As for the economic advantage that has contributed to building Switzerland's reputation as a safe haven, it is a matter of [the country's] strict bank secrecy law. Swiss law prohibits the uncovering or revealing of any banking information for any reason. Likewise, for over 200 years, Swiss banks have been using an encoding system which prevents even the bank's own clerks from knowing the identity of the account holders. Most importantly, the client is free to deposit his wealth under a pseudonym or under a secret number known to no one but himself. If we add to this five centuries of bank dependability and professionalism, we can understand how Switzerland became a refuge for rich people, tyrants, and thieves from all over the world.

"Now, let us consider the result of all this over the [last] 500 years:

"Neutrality and secrecy [not only] make the Swiss regime unique, they also ensure that wealth remains in Switzerland forever. When a client or tyrant dies, like Saddam Hussein or the Shah of Iran, [Switzerland's] bank secrecy and willful neutrality prevent the account from being returned to [the rightful heirs of] its original owner... For instance, to this day, the forgotten wealth of German officers killed in World War II remains in Switzerland. To this day, the same Swiss uniqueness [of neutrality and secrecy] obstructs the return of the millions stolen by Philippines [president Ferdinand] Marcos, by Zaire [president Mobutu] Sese Seko, by Nigerian [president Sani] Abacha, and by the leaders of the military coups in the Arab world and South America.

"In conclusion, this anonymous and forgotten capital now constitutes a large part of Switzerland's economic wealth, as a result of which the Swiss citizen enjoys a high standard of living, [with] comfort and ease.

"All that is left is to point out one uncommon event that can shed light on the ties between the Zionist organizations and the Swiss banking apparatus. Under pressure from the American-Jewish lobby, Switzerland acknowledged, for the first time, the existence of anonymous accounts belonging to Jews killed in World War II. Ten years ago, it agreed not only to restore the money [to the rightful heirs] but also to [pay] accrued interest from 1940. [This begs] a parallel question: [How much] wealth belonging to non-Jews lays forgotten in Swiss banks, and how much interest has accrued on it?

"The answers can be found in the sixth and 15th protocols of [The Protocols of] the Elders of Zion."
