Scientology founder Ron Hubbard had demonstrated significant antisemitism in his writings:
On the Jewish race:
"On further living I found that only those who sought only peace were ever butchered. The thousands of years of Jewish passivity earned them nothing but slaughter."

L. Ron Hubbard doesn't mention Jews and Judaism often in his lectures and writings (so far in what the editors have read) but on this occasion he seems to embrace one of the most common and widespread antisemitic myths in the world. In the rambling Aides Conference of 2 November 1969 concerning "Covert Operations", he believes "Jewish bankers" are funding his enemies.
The Jack Lundin affair ]. He just cased the situation to see how it was happening so they could then send in some heavy artillery see. Bang, this becomes very fascinating because a lot of administrative know-how is needed by Africa, we're actually organizing donation contributions, an American foundation and it's going to work in conjunction with Morocco. We're going to show them real down to earth administration, form a pattern of it, fix it up so more money comes in and wham, one of these guys shows up. Right away he's also shown up along lines where he's got false reports, false newspaper articles, big — maybe the newspaper article is actually a photostat, but the story in the first place was false. So what has happened here, there is a common denominator to what is going on that hasn't too much to do with us: where we go it's a proven fact money follows — it's not small money, it's big money. Four times now these birds have acted. So what is this? Look, nothing happens to us after we desist. After the old H.E.C. desisted in each one of these instances and ceased to push things into the country, nothing after that happened to them. Now this company, nothing is happening to this company right up to the moment when it all of a sudden starts to form a financial channel into Morocco. So I believe there are three or fours sides to this coin. I believe it has to do with cultural degradation of the country. I don't believe they intend these countries to have their balance of payments come out right. Now it's of peculiar interest to an Arab country that there is a company and a certain set of bankers who also finance the World Federation of Mental Health. And we're running these leads down now. But one of them is Loeb Kuhn, the big Jewish investment firm. What the hell is this all about? You're here in this covert operation, we all of a sudden look up and we see that although the KGB and so forth seems to be associated with the World Federation of Mental Health, their other organization in action seems to go back to Jewish Bankers. We make no sense out of this but it's just as far as we have gone, do you follow? So they have fish to fry of some kind or another.Now, some other factor entered the situation when we started functioning around in the Mediterranean area, or in Europe. Apparently they became somewhat panic stricken at the tremendous amount of money and knowhow that was flooding into England because we were there. Alright, they took action to make sure that didn't happen. Okay. We were helping out Spain and all of a sudden — not we, the old company, it was the H.E.C. [see note] And the H.E.C. at that time was doing surveys of business potential and bases for schools and activities. This is the truth. Alright. They prevented about two million quid a year from going into Spain. But we were okay till we did that. We were yakked at a little bit but nothing really happened, which I think is fascinating, nothing really happened to us — snarled at, yes, but ah no problem, and all of a sudden a lot of money was liable to come into Spain or it was beginning to come into Spain and instantly our throats were cut and then the second we pulled that out why we were okay again. But a pressure was kept up so we wouldn't do further business in Spain. We went to Greece, the ship went to Greece, and they started to put in a mission which was going to bring in a lot of money and a lot of tourists and a lot of travel tours and so forth, all kinds of things would have happened and we were doing a business survey at that time in Greece and the people in that particular areas were beginning to take hope because there was ways and means of settling it industrially, remember? When we got that going this covert operation stopped up, bang, cut our throats. Now all of a sudden we are starting to operate in Morocco and what do we find? One of these guys shows up. But the first guy that showed up in Greece was not really a reporter, he was a sort of a freelance [
These "Jewish Bankers" appear similar to the enemies that Hubbard identified in Ron's Journal 67 (still part of Scientologists' training), which in turn, sound similar to "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion ":
With all of this action being taken against us in the last seventeen years, I found, after the southern African matter, that it was vitally necessary that I isolate who it was on this planet who was attacking us. The attacks were always of the same pattern; they always followed the same newspaper routes; they always used the same type of parliamentary member; and I thought that I had better look into this very thoroughly.
The organization, under the direction of Mary Sue, actually before I returned from southern Africa, employed several professional intelligence agents who had long and successful professional backgrounds, and they looked into this matter for us. The results of their activities, although still in progress, have told us all that we needed to know with regard to any enemy we had on this planet. Our enemies on this planet are less than twelve men. They are members of the Bank of England and other higher financial circles. They own and control newspaper chains, and they are, oddly enough, in all the mental health groups which have sprung up in the world. These chaps are very interesting fellows. They have fantastically corrupt backgrounds; illegitimate children; government graft; a very unsavory lot. And they apparently, sometime in the rather distant past, had determined on a course of action. Being in control of most of the gold supplies of the planet, they entered upon a program of bringing every government to bankruptcy and under their thumb, so that no government would be able to act politically without their permission.
From the Anti-Defamation League's "Challenging Anti-Semitism: Debunking the Myths & Responding with Facts ":
MYTH #2: Jews control the banks, media, Hollywood, and even the U.S. government; Jews have a secret plot to take over the world
Where does it come from?
Anti-Semites point to “The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion” as proof of a Jewish conspiracy to dominate world political and economic sectors as well as media. This proven forgery, written by agents of the Russian czar in the late 19th century, claims to be the minutes of a secret meeting of Jews that details plans of Jewish leaders to rule the world. The proven forgery spread throughout the 20th century and continues to this day to promote the stereotype that the Jews own the banks and control the media.
