Just Another Thought

Last week in this post I asked, why are conspiracy theories and rumors so prominently used and believed in many Middle Eastern countries?

I was reading a book by Anton La Guardia this week and he had a different take on the subject,
"Conspiracies and plots are, above all, a convenient explanation for the Arab world's failure to defeat tiny Israel. From this perspective, Israel survives not because its people are smarter or better fighters than Arabs, but because it is a manifestation of a vast world scheme to subjugate the Arab world. The world's financial system and the international media are widely believed to be entirely controlled by the Jews and hostile to the Arab."
This explanation also makes sense, without conspiracy theories, Arab leaders thought out much of the Middle East would have to take the blame for all their own failures, instead taking the easy way out and blaming outside powers.
