Because in Europe they were not allowed to own land or work as an artisan. They had the international connection to other jewish communities and were mostly literate, so international trade was a reasonable option to make a living. A lot of jews were very poor though.
If you're going to try and defend it, please defend the whole quote.
Do you not see the distinction between:
a/ Some people who have been involved with commerce and worked with money have been culturally, ethnically and religiously Jewish
b/ The Jewish race is materialistic in nature and Jews can be liked even though they practice devious and undesirable business methods.
I mean seriously, how can you can defend such a claim without resorting to the most base, crass and pernicious of racial stereotyping?
