7 Conspiracy Theories Most Arabs Actually Believe

People, especially Arabs, love to get behind conspiracy theories. We’re talking about the crackpot ones that absolutely make no sense. They stand behind them, even when there’s no proof whether it’s actually true or not.

How can one confirm or deny the existence of a top-secret plan, unannounced political incident, or the hidden agenda of a political figure? A more important question would be how those people get to this information in the first place? The purpose of this piece is not to argue that all the following theories are wrong or right, it’s basically to get you up to speed whenever you find yourself in this kind of conversation.

One of the most popular conspiracy theories out there is that the Rosthchild Family control most of the central banks out there, and they are working on eliminating the exceptions. The theories argue that in the year of 2000 there were seven countries without a Rothschild owned or controlled Central Bank; Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea, and Iran. And after 2011, the only three left are Cuba, North Korea, and Iran. Thus the west influenced all the civil wars and uprisings against the Arab World to solidify the strength of the Rothschild Family that supposedly rules the world.
