Hi, Axelan. The Nazis weren't hiring Jews to recover it. The "Jewish leader" you are talking about is actually a non-Jewish Frenchman who simply dresses up as a Hebrew High Priest at the end to harness the Ark's power. While it is true that the Nazis hired Egyptians to work for them (some of whom could be considered Semites), there were no Jewish allies working with them in the film.
