Jewish domination? Israeli named most influential businessman by Time Magazine
The results of Time Magazine and CNN’s 2003 Global Influentials survey can only fuel the fire of newly launched claims that Israel and the Jews control international affairs. Israeli businessman Shai Agassi made the top 20 list, a publication that has in the past honored Bill Gates and Saudi Prince Al-Walid.
The survery provides good artillery to Muslim leaders making the case that Jews “rule the world”. Agassi is the Israeli behind German software giant SAP. He heads the international list, ranking above Intel CEO Paul Otellini, McDonald's president Charlie Bell and Walt Disney Company CEO Robert Iger.
Agassi joined SAP after it acquired TopTier Software, which he co-founded with his father, for $400 million. As a result of the merger, he became head of the newly created enterprise portal division SAP Portal.
Malaysia was subject to world criticism at the APEC Summit last month over the allegedly anti-Semitic remarks in Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad’s opening speech at the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) meetings. The leader sparked controversy when he said that "Jews rule the world by proxy. They get others to fight and die for them.” — (menareport.com)
