So Much for The Jews Controlling the Banks…

In case you missed this news from the “Apartheid” state of Israel:

The Board of Directors of Bank Leumi (TASE: LUMI) has appointed Samer Haj-Yehia as its new chairman. He will replace David Brodet who steps down at the end of July.

Dr. Haj-Yehia, 50, has served as a lecturer in economics at MIT, Harvard University, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya. In the business world, he has served as VP Financial Engineering at Fidelity Investments, sits on the board of directors of Strauss Group Ltd. (TASE:STRS) and also chairs the Audit Committee of Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem and is a member of the Council for Higher Education of Israel. He was the first-ever Arab to sit on the board of one of Israel’s major banks.

Because it apparently gets tiring controlling all the world’s banks by yourself.

But in all seriousness, well done to Samer.

Meanwhile, I see a little silhouetto of a man…
