The ‘Protocols’ — Alive and Well World Over

Pages: 1 2

Salman Rushdie, the author of “The Satanic Verses”, was quietly deleted from India’s Jaipur Literature Festival after the protests of the Darul Uloom Deoband seminary – one of Islam’s most powerful bodies.

Rushdie went into hiding after the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the Iranian Shia leader, issued a fatwa calling for his death.

Rushdie’s saga is now, in many parts of the Islamic world, associated with a “Zionist plot” and the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”, a short book concocted by the czarist police and presented as minutes of a secret meeting where Jews plotted world domination.

According to Iranian officials, Rushdie is a “mercenary author masterminded by Zionism, Britain and the United States of America”. Today Iran is one of the major world printers of the “Protocols”, the only book that has ever had the perverse distinction of being both globally influential and, at the same time, a forgery.

There is no accurate information on the sales of the “Protocols”, but it is undoubtedly one of the best sellers of all time.

Unfortunately, the “Protocols” rarely attracts Western attention, as we like to think that it is just a bad joke. We closed our eyes for too long.

In 1983, Yasser Arafat sent a letter to the UN secretary- general accusing Jews of “poisoning Palestinian schoolgirls”. It was the beginning of the monstrous Palestinian ideology.

Originally, the “Protocols” was meant as a warning to good Russian youths. The message: Beware of the machinations of the Jews, whose hidden aim is the subjugation of the Christian world.

Now the book is one of the most powerful propaganda tools of the Arab and Islamic world.
The only time the Protocols’ popularity dipped was immediately following the Holocaust. One suspects it was a little difficult to reconcile Jewish control of the world with the obliteration of a third of the Jewish people. But soon rationalizations began to appear.

On December 27, 2011, the Palestinian-Lebanese historian Bayan Nuwayhed Al-Hout published an article in the Lebanese daily Al-Akhbar, which dealt, among other things, with the “Protocols” and their connection to Judaism, the Zionist movement and the State of Israel. In her article, Al-Hout claims that the “the Protocols completely correspond to the words of the great Rabbis throughout the ages, and to the Talmud itself. The Chosen People is a basic Talmudic concept, meaning the people who were chosen to rule and dictate”.

Arab anti-Semitism has adopted all of Europe’s anti- Semitic myths. The “Protocols” are now prominently displayed not only in the Middle East, but also on the Western and Christian bookshelf. Though they are a proven forgery, they nevertheless receive worldwide recognition by those who seek to rely on them for promoting their own nefarious purposes.

    I can think of another such book: both globally influential and a forgery, Koran.

    • Sabra

      love it John :)

  • UCSPanther

    It is both terrifying and amazing to look at the history of this shabby piece of propaganda and to see how much damage, bloodshed and suffering it has caused to both Jews and non-Jews alike.

  • Flipside

    It is also not valid to say that because The Protocols is a forgery, Jews are unwilling or incapable of the things therein.

    • Larry

      You really are a choice piece of genocide desiring methane emitting trash, aren't you.

      I tell you what, go to your oven, turn the gas on, stick your head inside, than in a couple of hours why don't you come back and tell us that the Holocaust couldn't possibly have happened.

      • Flipside

        Did I deny the Holocaust? No.

        • stern

          However, you did fling every other anti-Semite libel our way, quite masterfully, if I might add. You have earned the distinction of spouting the most hate in the shortest possible space that I have ever seen.

          You are truly despicable.

          • Flipside

            You’re making things up. The only reason you accuse me of libel is because I have repeatedly caught people here doing anonymous LIBEL.

        • zionista

          you haven't denied it but a Jew hating slime bag like you probably thinks they didn't kill enough of us for your liking, huh floppy – we and Israel are here to stay – get used to it.

          • Flipside

            You have a busted sense of probability.

        • FriendofGaryCooper

          You've denied the Holocaust before, or the verbal equivalent. And its apparent from your baloney comment above that you would gleefully create conditions that would result in another Holcaust. It is however, valid to say that because the Jews have never committed any of the acts described by the Protocols; that they are unwilling and incapable of doing so. __

          • Flipside

            You are a lyingass liar. I have NEVER denied the Holocaust, you mendacious swine.

    • reader

      In other words, this tool here considers it valid to accuse the entire people of "the things" based on a forgery and his belief that they could be "willing" and "capable" of. That's all we need to know about him.

      • Flipside

        No, not the entire people. Just people like Charles Jacobs.

    • ziontruth

      If you Jew-haters believed in half the dark powers you have attributed to us, you would never dare to oppose us so lightheartedly as you do; instead, you would scramble to appease us as you do the Muslims, for in this case people do truly believe in their propensity to evil, all the indoctrination against "Islamophobia" notwithstanding.

      Beware the day you Jew-haters push the Jewish nation into a corner from which there is no escape. Beware the day the Jews believe they have nothing to lose. "Damned if I do, damned if I don't" can easily morph from a lament to a cheery feeling of, "…if so then I can do whatever I want!"

      • Flipside

        Everybody wants to play the caged animal bit.

        • Advocatus

          Not me. I'll leave that to you.

      • aspacia

        I have often argued that if pushed to the brink, Israel would irradiate most of the ME and its oil fields. I would not blame her if she did considering the crap the world throws at her, especially the feces flipside.

        • Flipside

          So you confess to being boorish? Do these arguments usually happen at parties?


        you have it all wrong,once america believes you even "might" get an itch to use nukes,we will leave that third world toilet a smoking heap of human garbage, no jew problem,no more………………..silly jews never see it coming

    • choi

      @"flipped out with HATRED"

      You really area JOO_HATING P.O.S.

      Look WHAT your ilk is "capable of"!!!!!

  • waterwillows

    Filppy-dippy will soon be tossed into the basket bin of enemies. Let's see Flippy hate his way out of that one.
    Ain't gonna work, he'll be along time learning to think correctly.

    • Flipside

      Think “correctly.” That’s an interestingly sinister concept. You should elaborate on that.

      • waterwillows

        No problem.

        You are here to learn. We all are. There are many different roads one may go about this, but basically they boil down to …. the how.
        Will it be that one makes it easier on themselves, or will it be the hard way?

        And as it it your own choices that will put you into your choice, it really doesn't matter to anyone else. As they are dealing with their choices independantly from all others. Everything counts as a choice. Are you caring or hateful? Do you promote the good of your brother or only the division of chaos? Etc…etc…

        Anyways, it is of yourself and therefore returned to yourself. Anything that you give to another, you actually give to yourself. You will get the whole meal deal, custom made for each individual. Similar to like having one's very own fingerprint.

        And very important. Never forget this; there is no such thing as it can not get worse. You would be wrong about that, every single time.
        So one can take all the time they choose for their misery. Centuries, if that is their inclination. And if the hard way is to one's taste and preferance, well there is no shortage ever.
        Believe me people do learn to think and act correctly. But take all the time you need.

        • Advocatus

          I'm sorry to ay but your response to Flippythebird sounds like those hippydippy tracts of meaningless New Ageisms. Then again, even if it were the fount of universal wisdom, it would be completely lost on our friend.

          At issue in comments about this post should be the prevalence of the Protocols across much of the world, where it is taken as evidence of Jews' time-honored perfidy. Some amorphous concept of the need for universal love, if that's what you're saying, is all well and fine, but what we need at this stage of the game is not calls, however well-meaning, for us all to hold hands and sing Kumbaya, but some workable modus operandi for countering all the hate and misinformation out there. In other words, it's fine to espouse the virtues of flower power. How does one go about convincing recalcitrant haters to get on board with it?

          • Flipside

            I think Waterwillows was well-intentioned and clear. I didn’t expect him/her to take the Confucianist tact. I have my reservations about it, but nothing mean spirited or with your exaggerated tone of realpolitik. The world doesn’t need any more amateur Henry Kissingers.

          • Advocatus

            Your ignorance is on full display again. How was that tract Confucian in any meaningful sense? If anything, Confucianism is a school of thought expressly dedicated to the cause of realpolitik. Did you mean Taoism perhaps or Zen Buddhism? That's a whole different ball game. But it's all Greek to you so no worries, old chap. As usual, your snide little putdown doesn't help matters much, either. You sound like that bitchy woman from "Glee" — no doubt your favorite television show.

          • aspacia


            Flipper is a lonely idiot who has zero friends. The more you respond to him, the more the fool posts.

          • Advocatus

            Yes, and what's more he's a shallow, intellectually bankrupt individual with the emotional maturity of a five-year-old. But the smug little phoney just irritates me.

          • Flipside

            Hmmm. Maybe this version is better than the other version you wrote. Maybe another revision.

          • Advocatus

            Nah. Site error. But nice try. And why the baby talk? "This version… other version…. another revision."

          • Advocatus

            Your ignorance is on full display again. How was that tract Confucian in any meaningful sense? If anything, Confucianism is expressly dedicated to the cause of realpolitik. Did you mean Taoism perhaps, or Zen Buddhism? That's a whole different ball game. But no worries, old chap, you're forgiven seeing as it's all Greek to you.

          • Flipside

            Why the weasel phrase "in any meaningful sense?" Hedging your bet? If anything can be said it is that a great many of the FPM writers and commenters keep stumbling over the Golden Rule.

          • waterwillows

            LOL Flippythebird? ….LOL

            Very Funny! I was hoping that finding out that hate just comes back to you might be of some help to the 'bird'. I thought it was worth a try from someone who has been there.
            Sometimes when people can understand that they 'own' their mess, it helps.

          • Advocatus

            Nah. I appreciate the effort, but Flipflop is just sheer unadulterated narcissistic fatuity. Not worth the trouble trying to tease some ounce of decency out of him.

      • Advocatus

        Yes. But still marginally better than not to think at all, as you're wont to do.

        Meanwhile, I am still awaiting your learned response about a host of issues in other threads, not the least of which is how one goes from "rationalist apologetics to cybernetics" as per your enlightened comment about atheism.

        You have a lamentable habit of trying to take the high road when cornered before moving to greener pastures on this site to dump all over it without contributing anything of substance whatsoever to any discussion.

        • Flipside

          I already answered that.

          • Advocatus

            You did? News to me.

        • waterwillows

          Are you speaking to me? I am not sure if the second post is a part of the first. Or perhaps you are replying to another.

    The protocols is the excuse anti-semites require to justify and excuse Jew-hatred and genocide. It has long been a best seller in the islamic world and no wonder: its contents feed the paranoia and insecurity of muslims who are unable to understand why they aren't allowed to institutionalize misery across the globe.

  • mrbean

    An Arabic translation of Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf" is now the best-seller in Turkey, the Arab Muslim states and even in Palestinian territories. Now it's being sold as the sixth best seller in Britain to a growing Muslim population. Hitler's autobiography, which includes anti-Semitic rantings, is normally found in England only in academic or political bookstores, but the London Telegraph found it for sale at newsstands on Edgware Road, an area with a large population of Arabs. In the preface, according to the Jewish Voice/Iyar, translator Luis al-Haj writes: "National Socialism did not die with the death of its herald. Rather, its seeds multiplied under each star." Remember this when dealing with Muslims.

    • aspacia

      Mein Kampf has been a ME best seller for more than a decade. Actually, it was required reading in my Modern European History. The atheist, communist, nonJewish professor taught logical fallacies along with the reading, absolutely eviserating it.

      • Advocatus

        A great many people around the world are wholly immune to reason and are entirely devoid of an understanding of history. Take the general proclivity of Arabs to rejoice in the hate-filled garbage that's Mein Kampf because of its explicitly genocidal anti-Semitism. What they seem to forget is that Hitler and the Nazis viewed them as subhuman with almost as much loathing as they did Jews. The same goes for Russian neo-Nazis. The Slavs, according to Der Fuhrer, were fit only as slaves, of course, but here these ignorant cretins are, parading around with Nazi flags and flashing the Sieg Heil salute.

        • aspacia

          Hitler would view the Muslims in a similar way that Arab Muslims view Muslims of other races.

  • Ghostwriter

    The "Protocols" are also the favorite book of people like Flipside,Deshawn,Nakba1948,Bashy Quraishy,and others like them. They are Jew haters of the most abominable kind so this book would be popular among those guys.

    • Flipside

      There are less abominable kinds of Jew haters? Such as?

      • Ghostwriter

        I was saying that you hate Israel and want it destroyed. You don't care what happens to the Jews there. You care more about those who want to destroy them,who have made the most disgusting anti-semitic propaganda since Joseph Goebbels. I've read your comments on this site and they have been vile. You don't care about Jewish people. You and those I named above want them dead. That's what I meant by what by the comments above you.

        • Flipside

          You were saying falsehoods that you wouldn't dare to say in person.

  • Elmer Kieth

    A mind full of feart and hate is capable of believing anything, no matter how idiotic.

  • Jill

    There is a constantly repeated completely open plan by Islam to rule the world.

    The Jews are (falsely) accused of wanting to do so, and the world is shocked.

    The Muslims are (truthfully) reported as wanting to do so, and the world is unconcerned.

  • Amused

    Our own Henry Ford is greatly responsible for the proliferation of this disgusting liable . He not only paid for publishing , but in several languages . For this , Henry Ford has the blood of innocent Jews on his hands .
