From the book Zaharoff the Armaments King:
Whoever controls oil will control the world, for he will rule the seas with heavy oil, the air with refined oil, and the land with petrol and light oil. In addition, he will economically control his fellow-men because of the fantastic wealth which he can win from oil, that wonderful substance which the earth gives, which is so sought after to-day, and which is more valuable even than gold.* the Banque de Paris et des Pays-Bas defunct:
What did follow was the intervention of Basil Zaharoff' in the Angle-French war. After fruitful diplomatic preparation it broke out in November 1918 at the Paris Conference, and it ended on March I5, 1925, with the Peace of Mosul. It is the British political tradition to clip the wings of the strongest Power on the Continent. The strongest Power on the Continent was Germany; so in 19I4 Britain had to go to war with her, to a little war in the boardroom of the Turkish Petroleum Company, and in one or two other boardrooms; then this little war was extended a little and is known as the World War.
But in November 1918 France was the strongest Power on the Continent so, as far as British policy was concerned, it automatically took the place which Germany had once held, and the war-aim of Britain in the Anglo-French war which now broke out, though not in a military form, was-the crippling, or at least the checking, of France's power. The nearest way, the easiest, and the" most peaceful" way was that which led over oil. France possessed no oil, and without oil, if one had learned the lesson of the World War, a Great Power is not a Great Power. Thus sheer necessity made the Anglo-French war an oil war. It had a foreign front-Mosul. And the struggle of the French for this source of supply, the only one which, as a result of the repartitioning of the world, was practically accessible, now takes on its true aspect, and reveals itself to be a life and death struggle.
...by the fact that the British a couple of years ago and more had smelled out this Algerian oil. As long ago as 1915, in fact. Then Lord Murray, sent out by the oil company S. Pearson & Co., had tried to get an oil concession which was to include over 730,000 hectares of what was obviously oil-bearing land in Algeria. After long negotiations, the concession had been refused for national reasons. Now in January 1919, for reasons which are known to us, England suddenly became pressing. Cost what it might, it had to get that Algerian concession before the French thought of shutting the land to the British.
On January J, 1920, Britain handed over Syria, and in March the Syrian Druses broke out in rebellion and showed the new French masters of the land that they were anything but the masters of the land.Without wishing in any way to take sides, let us simply state that two years later the French-having on the occasion of another rising found the Druses and two other annoying tribes in possession of arms made by Vicker sstated plainly and bluntly that if it was not England who had been behind both Druse risings, it was at least Mr. Basil Zaharoff. (my comment: he is married to a Jewess so Jews behind this uprising!). ... What we know as the war with Feisal, the guerilla fighting of the Druses, and the occupation of the Straits was nothing more than the back stage for ten gentlemen who smoked fat cigars on the Riviera, and chatted about petrol. The result: when the French, in spite of their unfriendly welcome, laid about them vigorously, when Feisal and the Druses got the worst of it, the French had to be given something. Quite a big something-fully 25 per cent.-England received 75 per cent. of the Mosul oil. The Americans, in spite of protests, got nothing.
The first American objective in this new stage of the war was the expulsion of Mr. Zaharoff and Shell from the French home market. If Mr. Zaharoff had in his hands for furthering Shell's business. the Banque de l'Union parisienne, Standard Oil now took possession of the second big bank, the competitor, *the Banque de Paris et des Pays-Bas.

Adolf Hitler played a part in getting rid of Jewish banking houses in opposition to the House of Rothschild. See:
"The banking house of the famous family Mendelssohn was founded by Joseph Mendelssohn in 1795, who was a son of the philosopher Moses Mendelssohn and uncle of the composer Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy. The company became one of the most important German banking houses, it could establish itself very fast on the international money market – especially strong on the Russian market, and it was a serious competitor to the Rothschilds. During the aryanization of German businesses the banking house was liquidated and taken over by Deutsche Bank."
