The Evil Jew is a stereotype utilized by people in pursuit of anti-Semitic political agendas. In this racist perspective, Jews are typically painted as controllers of capital and money, "clannish", and as having an agenda beyond what is visible. These stereotypes constitute a large part of many conspiracy theories. However, a thorough investigation will return that Jews have not in fact been controllers of capital and money, "clannish," or pursuers of a hidden agenda. Claims that Jews were involved in the advent of Communism, for instance, are false, as are claims that Jews were involved with the advents of fractional reserve banking or the modern cult of diversity of cults. Anyone who researches these claims before coming to a hasty conclusion will find that they are all entirely false.
The Evil Jew has been hard at work undermining civilization itself for so long that he requires multiple articles to fully document his evilness. A brief timeline of the Evil Jew:
Much anti-Semitism originates from the "Christ-killer" narrative, which posits that all Jews are guilty of deicide against Jesus. This meme wasn't repudiated by the Catholic Church until the Second Vatican Council in 1965.
 Blood libel
A common myth originating in Medieval Europe was that Jews murdered Christians in order to spice up their Matzo with the blood of the dead. Some blood libel theories claimed that the Jews preferred small children and babies and that they would kill them in Satanic murder rituals.
 Jooish Bankstahs
It's often noted that the banking and financial sectors are disproportionately inhabited by Jews. As a result, there are a proliferation of Jewish banker conspiracy theories, pretty much all revolving around or involving the Rothschild family, probably the most powerful banking family in the world that began its ascendancy in the late 18th century.
This has led to various types of racist conspiracy theories as well as pro-Semitic racial pseudoscience. The conspiracy theories usually revolve around Jews using financial fraud or other trickery in order to take over the field of finance. A common trope in current theories is that Jews manipulate the world's financial system through the use of fractional-reserve banking and central banks like the Federal Reserve. On the flip side, a variety of racialist pseudoscience has been put forth claiming the inherent ethnic superiority of the Jews using their presence in the banking system as "evidence" of this.
Of course, there is a much simpler and realistic explanation for the observed phenomenon. The Bible prohibits usury, or lending money for interest, and Christians in Medieval Europe were prohibited from practicing usury by religious law. This left a societal niche for Jews to fill so they became dominant in the financial sector.
Use of the terms "bank$tah" and "debt slavery" are usually a sign that you have reached the more unseemly and conspiratorial area of the internets. These areas should be avoided, as the information they display can confuse the average mind. However, if a user is sensible and intelligent, there is no harm in viewing these places recreationally.
 International Jewish conspiracy
The Jews are alleged to have leveraged their power in the financial industry and involvement in Freemason and Illuminati conspiracies to have completely taken over the world. Many of these "theories" were codified in the pseudohistory The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. Besides banks, Jews are commonly alleged to especially control the media, governmental bodies, academia, and the arts. In fact, Jews hardly control any of the media networks anywhere in the world. Investigate who owns the major media networks in your country, for instance, and one will find that Jews control almost none of these networks.
Something bad happen? Blame the Jews!
 Nazi mythology
The Nazi Party famously promoted anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and myths. The most notable of these was the stab-in-the-back legend, which claimed Jews were in bed with the Reds and caused Germany to lose World War I. This is still expounded by followers of neo-Nazi ideology. Holocaust denial is another piece of pseudohistory promoted by neo-Nazis. But as anyone who has read and investigated the rest of the claims on this page can infer, Jews did none of these things.
 Jews did 9/11!
Some Truthers invoke anti-Semitic tropes in their conspiracy theories, usually involving Mossad plots or the international Jewish conspiracy. The anti-Semitic versions of 9/11 conspiracy theories are popular in the Middle East. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a vocal proponent of these theories.
