How Does This Make Sense?

This part isn't the real puzzle (via Instapundit):

“The world Jewish community is consolidating,” said Jonathan Sarna, a professor of American Jewish history at Brandeis University… “Jews are abandoning Third World countries where historically they had been persecuted and moving to large and generally free First World countries.”

Jews leave Third World countries because they are persecuted. Why are they persecuted? Because so many accuse them of controlling the world (or just the money, sometimes).

The puzzle is that if people really believe Jews control the world (or even just the money), shouldn't that make people want to be nicer to Jews?

That's always puzzled me.
