Speaker of the Iraqi parliament blames Jews for insurgency

In calling for an apology from the Iraqi PM for his remarks about Israel, Democratic House member Jan Schakowsky cited this quote from the Speaker of the Iraqi parliament:

“On July 13th, the Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament claimed that there was a Jewish conspiracy which was responsible for the insurgency in Iraq. He was quoted as saying: “Some people say 'we saw you beheading, kidnapping and killing…These acts are not the work of Iraqis. I am sure that he who does this is a Jew and the son of a Jew. I can tell you about these Jewish, Israelis and Zionists who are using Iraqi money and oil to frustrate the Islamic movement in Iraq.”
