A key antisemitic theme asserts that Jews are greedy and immoral, and even naturally inclined towards paedophilia and orchestrating war. This portrayal of Jews as a nefarious, self-serving, deleterious force corrupting society has been used to justify persecution of the Jews and was a central pillar of Nazi propaganda.
Jews are naturally greedy
This plays to the well-known stereotype of the miserly Jew. It is claimed that the supposed greed of the Jewish people is such that they are willing to harm others to satisfy it.
The long-standing false accusation that the Talmud endorses paedophilia is now being deliberately and inaccurately linked to recent revelations about the sexual abuse of minors, with the latter being portrayed as a predominantly Jewish issue.
