- Read the following declassified
United States Military Intelligence Division Report on the Protocols of
Zion and you will see that the US MID believed the Protocols to be authentic.
Everything else is just Zionist noise.
- THE POWER AND AIMS OF INTERNATIONAL JEWRY
- The below given report is a U.S. War Department investigation
and evaluation of issues generated by Jewish power. It was compiled in
August 1919 and given SECRET classification until 1973.
- A hard copy of this document may be obtained from U.S.
National Archives in Washington DC, - its number is 245-1.

- THE POWER AND AIMS OF INTERNATIONAL JEWRY
- The recent emphasis in American public opinion placed
on the part the Jews have been taking in world events, has seemed to warrant
the Department in undertaking a preliminary study of the particular matters
in controversy and also the larger question of the scope of Jewish influence
in world affairs today. Among the more important points around which controversy
has waged are:
- I. The authenticity of the so-called Jewish Protocols,
which purport to set forth a Jewish plan, centuries old, of world domination.
- II. The question of how far Jewry as such is connected
with Bolshevism, not only in the Soviet Government of Russia and Hungary,
but in all the other countries of the world and particularly Germany and
the United States.
- III. The various phases of the Polish question:
- (a) Whether the Jewish anti-Polish propaganda in the
United States has been based on actual widespread Jewish Pogroms in Poland,
- (b) Whether, on the contrary, the stories of pogroms
have been greatly exaggerated as a part of a deliberate Zionist propaganda
to get for the Jews in Poland minority rights which both factions of American
Poles publicly denounce as amounting to the creation of a state within
- (c) How serious is the nation-wide secret boycott against
all Jews and Jewish goods recently started by the American Poles and other
Slavic sympathizers ?
- [page 2 of doc. begins]
- It is self evident that in controversies such as these
the Jews are strongly on the defensive on one side while the Slavic peoples
are bitter in their denunciation upon the other. The important thing for
us, however, is the fact that Americans in the main do not sense the situation
nor appreciate its dangerous possibilities. Unfortunately there is too
much truth in the charge made by the Slavs that the reasons for this is
that the American press is so largely owned and controlled by the Jews.
Witness the fact that the so-called Jewish Protocols which constitute by
far the most serious charge against the Jews of those above enumerated,
have never been mentioned in any American publication other than the official
report of the Senate Judiciary Committee containing the testimony about
- I. THE JEWISH PROTOCOLS:
- The so-called Jewish Protocols purport to be the official
pronouncement of the program of Jewish world domination drawn up by Theodore
Herzl the founder of the modern Zionist movement and presented by him in
1897 to the inner circle of the first Zionist Congress at Basle, Switzerland.
A summary of them was first published in Russia about 1905 by Serge Nilus
who claims to have had a copy stolen from the Zionist files in France.
In 1915 [barely legible on doc. possibly reads 1916] Nilus wrote another
book entitled "IT IS NEAR RIGHT AT THE DOOR", dealing largely
with the danger of the Jew in world affairs. Here he sets out what he claims
to be the full and exact translation of the Protocols. This book was published
early in 1917 at a Russian Monastery near Moscow, but shortly after the
first Russian Revolution of 1917 it was ordered suppressed and so even
in that country it was exceedingly difficult to obtain.
- [page 3 of doc. begins]
- Dr. George A. Simons testifying before the Senate Committee
said (Pages 135, 136 and 137 of the Record):
- Senator Nelson: Are Lenine and Trotsky Yiddish ?
- Mr. Simons: Lenine is from a very fine old Russian family,
so we are told, and is intellectually a very able man. A fanatic, he was
called the brains of this movement. Trotsky is a Jew. His real name is
- Senator King: Why are they so bitter toward religion,
especially the Christian religion ?
- Mr. Simons: There is a gentleman here in America who
last night called on me, Dr. Harris A. Houghton, I think is his full name.
I knew him out in Bay Side when I was the pastor of that church. He called
on me last night. He is a Captain in the United States Army. I had not
seen him for six years. He asked me whether I knew anything about the anti-Christian
element in the Bolshevik regime. I said, "Indeed I do". I do
know all about it." He said, "Did you ever come across the so-called
Jewish protocols ?" I said "Yes, I have had them." "I
have a memorandum" he said, "and last winter after much trouble
I came into possession of a book which was called "REDUSTI, ANTI-CHRIST."
Now, Dr. Houghton in the meantime had investigated this. He had come into
possession of this book, which is quite rare now, because it was said that
when the edition came out it was immediately bought up by the Jews in Petrograd
and Moscow. That book reflects a real organization. That book is of some
consequence. But the average person in official life here in Washington
and elsewhere is afraid to handle it. Houghton says that even in his intelligence
bureau they were afraid of it.
- Senator King: Tell us about the book. What is bad about
it ? Is it anti-Christian ?
- Mr. Simons: It is anti-Christian and it shows what this
secret Jewish society has been doing in order to make a conquest of the
world, and to make the Christian forces as ineffective as possible, and
finally to have the whole world, if you please, in their grip; and now
in that book ever so many things are said with regard to their program
and their methods, which devetail into the Bolshevik regime. It just looks
as if that connected in some way.
- Now, I have no animus against the Jews, but I have a
great passion for truth: If there is anything in it I think we ought to
know. The man who wrote it is considered a truth-loving man, a man held
in the highest esteem by the authorities of the Russian Orthodox Church.
- Senator Nelson: In this book that you refer to is there
anything that goes to show that this Bolshevik government of Russia are
supporting, directly or indirectly, this book of protocols ?
- [page 4 of doc. begins]
- Mr. Simons: Before answering that question I should like
to see that translation, because I do not know how this thing has been
done. (A pamphlet was handed to the witness.)
- Senator Nelson: You have seen the original book ?
- Mr. Simons: Yes. Some very finely educated Russian generals
of note have told me that they considered this as an authentic thing, and
they say the marvelous part of it is that nearly all of that is being executed
under the Bolsheviki.
- It is true by his extravagant statements since giving
this testomony Dr. Simons has been somewhat discredited. However, while
on the stand, under oath, he spoke with unusual care, and other people
who had been in Russia at the time covered by his testimony were unable
to criticize his story. Those of his statements reprinted in the press
brought out the first public condemnation of Bolshevism by such Jewish
leaders in America as Louis Marshall.
- Recently the Department was able to examine what is said
to be the only copy now in the United States of this Nilus book containing
the Protocols. At that time photostatic copies of the Russian text were
made for the Department files.
- As stated above, there has been no reference in the press
to the existence or the contents of the Protocols, nor to Dr. Simons testimony
concerning them, although there was wide publicity to this more general
charges as to the part the Jews were taking in the Bolshevik Government
and an equally wide publicity to the vigorous denial of leading American
Jews to this letter charge. Nevertheless, the testimony concerning the
Protocols, which was given at an open public hearing and which has recently
been published in the official Senate Report, has given them a certain
limited publicity. We have been informed at second hand that an English
translation of the Protocols has been shown to Justice Brandeis and Jacob
Schiff each of whom vigorously disclaimed their authenticity, Mr. Schiff
asserting that they are a creation of German propagandists. This explanation
seems almost impossible considering the circumstances of the Russian publication
- facts which
- [page 5 of doc. begins]
- perhaps were not made known to him, at the time he saw
the translation, much less probable than the suggestion said to have been
made by Justice Brandeis that the Protocols are the creation of a fanatic
- It is not the purpose of this memorandum to make any
argument toward establishing their genuineness. As previously stated, [hand
written insert illegible] the Protocols are attributed to Herzl himself
and one certainly must note the identity of thought found in the Protocols
on the one hand and in Herzl's public writings, and in the writings of
other prominent past and contemporary Jewish leaders on the other. (Note
- Note 1:
- Protocol 1, page 1: "According to the law of being
might is right."
- Protocol 1, page 3: "Our right lies in force."
- Herzl, "The Jewish State", page 2: "For
this, as indeed every point which arises in the commerce of nations, is
a question of might. ******* In the world of today and for an indefinite
period, it will probably remain so, might precious right."
- A number of similar illustrations such as the quotations
relating to the "Terrible power of the Jewish purse" are set
out in Appendix A.
- [page 6 of doc. begins]
- Some of the important events which have occurred since
1897 have fulfilled in a striking manner the predictions and aims expressed
in the Protocols themselves. (Note 2.)
- Furthermore, it is impossible to read far in the Protocols
and in the public writings of Hess, Herzl and other Jewish Leaders without
being impressed with the constant reiteration of certain fundamental principles
and ideals. Among the more important of these around which the forces of
Jewry are now rallying are the following:
