Jews' money lending "Shylock" behavior caused Antisemitism explains PA TV
PA TV history program, Witnesses and Testimonies, featuring two Jordanian academics:
Jordanian academic Arafat Hijazi:
"150 years ago, when there were no Jews in Palestine, the Jews were in Europe, in Eastern Europe, but the Jews suffered from persecution by the European nations.
The reason was that they would harm the people of the lands in which they lived. They had a problem: Wherever they went, they were expelled, and were imprisoned."
Jordanian academic Muhammad Dohal:
"The Jews are hated in every society in which they have lived, because of their behavior relating to their great love of money.
Their behavior led to [Shakespeare's] famous story, the story of Shylock about money lending, which clings to the Jews. This is how they harmed the societies that embraced them, including the Palestinian society, the Arab-Palestinian society. We all know that the Jews lived in Palestine and the Palestinian people included them, so to say, and they lived in dignity. But they contrived schemes by means of their secret organizations, which planted in them the idea of the need to purchase land and to seize control of them, and then to claim that they were the owners of a great area of the land, and that they were the original inhabitants of this land, and that the people which included them was accidental in this land."
