The Protocols of the Elders of ZionÂ was a literary hoax and forgery of disreputable antecedents. It claimed to be the records of a conference of Jews to mastermind the subjugation ofÂ the world. Occasionally, in the mainstream media, one hears theProtocolsÂ being pooh-poohed. Infrequently, a scholar of Islam and Judaism will appear as a guest to discuss the fabrication of theÂ ProtocolsÂ and the horrendous crimes it inspired.The sordid literaryÂ genealogyÂ of the work is a series of mongrel plagiarisms and adaptations, appropriated for political reasons by antisemitic writers and the Tsarist secret police.Â Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu, an 1864 political satire by French writer Maurice Joly (parts of which were plagiarized from Eugene Sue’sÂ Les MystÃ¨res du PeupleÂ (1856), was the chief source theÂ Protocols, and intended to excoriate Napoleon III.
Dialogue and narrative were freely lifted from Joly’s work and only slightly altered to appear in a chapter ofÂ Biarritz, an 1868 novel by the antisemitic German novelist Hermann Goedsche. This chapter contained not only plagiarized portions of Joly’s work, but also a scene from Alexander Dumas pÃ¨re’s novel,Â The Queen’s Necklace(1848, in which none of the conspirators were Jewish). The specific chapter that deals with the conspiracy of Jewish elders, “The Jewish Cemetery in Prague and the Council of Representatives of the Twelve Tribes of Israel,” which also involved Freemasons as co-conspirators, was translated into Russian in 1872 and appeared as a pamphlet.
Philip Graves, a correspondent for the London Times,Â first exposedÂ theÂ ProtocolsÂ as a hoax in a series of articles in 1921. Other investigators subsequently built on his work and helped to thoroughly repudiate theÂ Protocols. Herman Bernstein, an American writer, journalist, and diplomat, in the same year publishedÂ History of a Lie, which also repudiated theÂ Protocols. Nevertheless, Henry Ford underwrote the publication of theÂ ProtocolsÂ from 1920 to 1922, until ordered to cease by the courts and to publish an apology. Ford saw theÂ ProtocolsÂ as an alliance between Jews and Bolsheviks. He claimed to have been duped by his underlings.
Still, even before 1921, opposing forces found theÂ ProtocolsÂ useful as an expression and tool of antisemitism. Monarchists and White RussiansÂ before and afterÂ the 1905 and 1917 Russian Revolutions cited the work to blame everything on the Jews. In 1903 theÂ ProtocolsÂ were serialized in a St. Petersburg newspaper, but in 1905 declared a fraud by the Tsar’s chief minister, Pyotr Stolypin.
This was a major indictment of Pyotr Rachkovsky, the former head of the Tsar’s secret police, the Okhrana, and the purported author of the book-length version of theÂ Protocols, calledÂ The Jewish Programme to ConquerÂ the World, published in 1903.Â Radio Islam, however, claims that Sergyei Nilus published the book in 1905, although another site claims they appeared in a chapter of another book written by Nilus, a mystic. The true origins of the book-length version of theÂ ProtocolsÂ remain as murky and offensive as the bottom of a cesspool.
Yet, even for all the scholarly debunking that occurred beforehand, and whatever their bizarre pedigree, theÂ ProtocolsÂ remain a force to contend with. Adolf Hitler made theÂ ProtocolsÂ required reading for all German students. The twenty-four sections of theÂ ProtocolsÂ served as a justification for the Holocaust. Like the purity of the Aryan race (or of any race, for that matter), theÂ ProtocolsÂ were fictive in origin and exposed as a collective lie and a heinous defamation. TheÂ ProtocolsÂ plot was the mother of all conspiracy theories, and has had a tenacious longevity. It is the Nosferatu of schizoid politics; demonstrate its bogus origins, drive a stake through its heart with evidence, and it is back haunting the darkness.
Witness the continued belief in anthropologicalÂ global warming. It has been repudiated and proven to be a fraud manufactured and manipulated by power-lusters determined to reduce man to subsistence level or worse. Yet countless people still believe in it, regardless of the evidence.Â LawsÂ remain on the books to force men to give up their cars, their food, their “carbon footprints.” Obama has subsidized severalÂ solar powerÂ companies (which have gone bankrupt despite taxpayer subsidies), he has vetoed new oil pipelines and oil exploration development, and allowed the EPA to condemnÂ coal miningÂ to extinction. All in the name of a fairy tale in which juggled numbers, bewildering graphs, and dramatic but misleading photography substitute for caricatures of bearded Jews rubbing their hands together in avarice.
TheÂ ProtocolsÂ are a kind of Hansel and Gretel fairy tale in which the wicked witch gobbles up the children and cackles in triumph. Yes, a fairy tale. Not a very nice one to read to children.
But it is read to and by countless Muslim children in Gaza, the West Bank, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and anywhere else where Islam reigns.
Islam â€“ not “militant” Islam, not “extremist” Islam â€“ but just plain Islam uses theProtocolsÂ as the keystone in its agenda. Just as environmentalists believe in Rachel Carson’sÂ Silent SpringÂ and Al Gore’s hockey sticks and Hollywood-produced slide show.
Why? Because theÂ ProtocolsÂ fit the racism and bigotry of Islam. Because facts, evidence and reason are the enemies of Islam. Because Islam has an agenda, part of which is to extinguish Jews from existence, in addition to subjugating all non-Muslims to Sharia law inÂ a hostÂ of caliphates governed by a global caliphate.
But, except on anti-jihadist websites, one never hears about how real is the Islamic agenda of conquest, or, as a few other articles have called it,Â The Protocols of the Elders of Islam.
TheÂ Orange County RegisterÂ (California) in May 2009 chastised the Wiesenthal Holocaust center for showing “The Third Jihad,” because that film indicted TheMuslim BrotherhoodÂ for its violent and stealth jihad to conquer Europe and the United States.
As its name suggests, the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Museum of Tolerance is supposed to promote the kind of cultural dialog that brings people together rather than pushes them apart. So it’s more than a little bit odd that the center showed a movie last weekend that has been compared to the gold-standard of anti-Semitic propaganda:Â The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.The latter tome was supposedly written by the Jews who secretly want to take overÂ the world. Actually it’s pure fiction, but the book nonetheless helped pave the way for Russian pogroms in the 19th Century and the Nazi-era holocaust. The film in question, “The Third Jihad,” was screened at the Museum of Tolerance last Sunday. Like the book before it, the film claims to provide evidence of a global plot of subversion, in this case a plot to subvert America by blood-thirsty terrorists posing as regular-guy American Muslims.
On May 15, Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Greater Los Angeles Area chapter, sent a letter asking the Simon Wiesenthal Center to call of [sic] its showing of the film. “As an institution that claims as its goal battling hatred and bigotry acrossÂ the world, I am disappointed to see the Wiesenthal Center engage in promoting hatred and bigotry against another minority–American Muslims,” Ayloush wrote….”Claiming that American Muslims are part of some world-wide conspiracy to take over America is nothing short of concerted hateful fear mongering that intends to build animosity and even eventual violence against Muslims,” he argues. “The Holocaust in Europe and the genocides in Bosnia and Rwanda did not happen in a vacuum. They were preceded with such baseless hateful material that dehumanized the intended targeted community and were promoted by many enablers who falsely hid behind the claim of “generating discussion and sharing views.”
Nothing in Alyloush’s sanctimonious statement jibes with the stated aims of the Brotherhood, which is conquest of the West, and of the world, by violence and stealth. In February, Steve Emerson of theÂ Investigative Project on Terrorism, quoted a Brotherhood spokesman about its relationship withÂ Hamas:
Having swept into majorities in Egypt’s parliament, a Muslim Brotherhood spokesman is making it clear the group has ambitions far beyond Cairo.”Concerning the Islamic caliphate, this is our dream, and we hope to achieve it, even after centuries,” Brotherhood spokesman Mahmoud Ghuzlan told Egypt’s Ahram news outlet in an interview Sunday. “It is the right of the Brotherhood that this is one of the pillars of its strategy. We are not concerned about the renaissance of the group only. Rather our first goal is the renaissance of Egypt, then the Arab world and then the Islamic world. This will come gradually.”
Ghuzlan also affirmed the Brotherhood’s relationship to Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist movement which controls Gaza. “Hamas is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine and the last bastion to protect it considering that the group is scattered in about seventy countries. It is part of the Da’wa of the Brotherhood. Between the two is an intellectual and emotional link. Our position on them is like our position on any brothers in the world, particularly Arab countries. We do not interfere in its affairs, and give advice if requested; the Brotherhood in every country respecting and living in accordance with the constitution of this state and its laws.”In December, Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh similarly acknowledged the connection. Hamas, he said, is the Brotherhood’s “jihadist arm.”
Just as CAIR is the Brotherhood’sÂ public relationsÂ taqiyyaÂ arm, posing also as a champion of the “civil rights” of Muslims.The Orange County Register, as well as every newspaper and publication in this country, as well as the FBI, the State Department and other authorities charged with protecting this country from attack and invasion, should keep these statements in mind:
“Conquer the worldÂ through Halal movement”Â â€“ In 2010, the mufti of Bosnia-Herzegovina Mustafa Ceric, a Muslim Brotherhood leader in Europe, has evoked this project of Islamic conquest in a speech given in Islamabad (Pakistan) at the Global Halal Congress â€“ Reported by the Daily Mail (Islamabad) and archived by GMBDR [The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report].“We will conquer Europe, we will conquer America!”Â â€“ Excerpt of a speech given in 1995 by Youssef Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood spiritual guide, at a convention organized by the Muslim Arab Youth Association (MAYA) in Toledo (Ohio) â€“ Archived by Investigative Project
“It should be us, with our understanding of Islam, our principles,colonizing positively the United StatesÂ of America”Â â€“ Excerpt of a speech given in July 2011 by Tariq Ramadan in front of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) in Dallas (TX) â€“ Transcript by Point de Bascule.
The “Protocols of the Elders of Islam” are not fictive. Not fantasy. Not a figment of anyone’s imagination. Instead of twenty-four points, the Hamas Charter, for example, has thirty-six. They are there to be read in the charters of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. They are being vigorously pursued and implemented in the Mideast, in Far East Asia, in Europe, in Britain, and in the United States, the denials of the Orange County Register and other dhimmi publications to the contrary notwithstanding. As with the fictive assertions of the imaginary Jews, the very real conspirators of Islam will form alliances with any other collectivist ideology, especially with communism.
Here is an excerpt fromÂ Protocol No. 3. Assuming that the reader has read about the Muslim demonstrations in Europe, watched them on TV, and is familiar with the daily depredations and violence of Islamic jihadists, can the reader make any distinction between the libelous hubris of imaginary Jews, and the actual and demonstrable ends and means of Islam?
To-day I may tell you that our goal is now only a few steps off. There remains a small space to cross and the whole long path we have trodden is ready now to close its cycle of the Symbolic Snake, by which we symbolize our people. When this ring closes, all the States of Europe will be locked in its coil as in a powerful vice.We appear on the scene as alleged saviors of the worker from this oppression when we propose to him to enter the ranks of our fighting forces – Socialists, Anarchists, Communists – to whom we always give support in accordance with an alleged brotherly rule (of the solidarity of all humanity) of our social masonry. The aristocracy, which enjoyed by law the labor of the workers, was interested in seeing that the workers were well fed, healthy, and strong. We are interested in just the opposite – in the diminution, the killing out of the goyim [Hebrew, nation; substitute infidels or the People of the Book, and is there a difference in object?]. By want and the envy and hatred which it engenders we shall move the mobs and with their hands we shall wipe out all those who hinder us on our way.
Or, as Ellsworth Toohey, the arch-villain, remarks to Peter Keating, as he relates the state of the world under totalitarian rule in Ayn Rand’s novel,Â The Fountainhead: “Am I raving or is this the cold reality of two continents already?”* Make that four continents: Europe, Asia, Africa, and eventually North America. Imagine Toohey in a turban, or sporting aÂ keffiyahÂ and a pair ofÂ babouches. He could adapt to Islam, easily. It made no difference to him, either, which totalitarian system prevailed. He could submit to Islam, provided he could also subjugate the independent man and erase him from existence. His ends would comport smoothly with Islam’s â€“ and his means, as well.
Islam’s affinity with force and fraud has no bounds. Its perpetuation and exploitation ofÂ The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a malicious fabrication founded on the lowest form of unreason, has allowed it to emulate the irrationality it purports to oppose.
*The Fountainhead, by Ayn Rand. New York: Bobbs-Merrill, 1943. P. 6
“We have detected the despicable, hellish, and Satanic plan to dominate the world and to humiliate the peoples and the nations.” No, he wasn’t talking about theÂ Muslim Brotherhood’s stated goalÂ of “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.” “Egyptian TV Host Hussam ‘Aql: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion Is a Matter of Undisputable Science,” fromÂ MEMRI, March 23:
Following are excerpts from an address by Egyptian TV host Hussam ‘Aql, which aired on Al-Nas TV on March 23, 2012 :Hussam ‘Aql : The Zionist entity and the Zionist movement are constantly “playing” with revolutions. What does that mean? After the revolutions, the situation is very fluid â€“ the state is on its knees, and its institutions are shaky. This is the perfect opportunity for the Zionist entity to deal its blow and to play its little game.
Whoever does not believe me can look at The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. This is no book of poetry or stories. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is a matter of undisputable science.
There was a meeting of the Freemasons in France, and a French woman managed to smuggle out some dangerous documents, which circulated in the meeting.
Between 1897 and 1951, the secret Zionist groups held nearly 23 meetings, one of which was a large gathering, which included over 50 Zionist groups. They issued several documents: How can we gain control over the world’s minds? How can we gain control of the media? How can we turn the mighty national armies into cantons, which will fight one another? How can we gain control over the flow of capital? How can we gain control over the presidents and state leaders, and turn them into collaborators?
A French woman managed to smuggle out these documents, which serve as the backbone of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion….
Sergei Nilos issued a warning and wrote research. Then in the early 20th century, along came Victor Marsden and translated The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. We have read The Protocols, and we have detected the despicable, hellish, and Satanic plan to dominate the world and to humiliate the peoples and the nations.
