This Zionist line that is ruling Israel is also ruling the Jewish associations of Egypt worldwide.

An example is in Iran [illegible] and the Jewish Sabet Pasal, who has become Baha’i. Today, the country of Israel is formed by this [illegible], and the crimes that Israel and the Zionist band are committing today, are being supported by this pillar of wealth. Unfortunately, that Zionist attitude is what is driving many of the world’s capitalists who own the wealth and the control of the world today.  So when the world becomes so connected, and all parts of the world are so interconnected, the world’s transactions reach million-dollar deals, and every day billions of dollars in money and goods are exchanged.
