World Conquest Through World Government
This Lie Will Not Die
By Lawrence Elliott
[For nearly a century this evil manuscript has united bigots of every stripe and, in the process, claimed millions of lives. Millions around the world embrace its tale of dark conspiracy. You can buy it in bookstores from Teheran to Tokyo, from a peddler in Moscow, or by mail from Lincoln, Nebraska, U.S.A. Black extremists have hawked the book on university campuses. Called the "Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion," it has shored up a century of anti-Semitism. It has been shown beyond doubt to be a forgery and a classic of paranoia. But wherever a scapegoat is needed and the gullible can be duped, the "Protocols"continue to flourish, sowing suspicion, hatred and murder.]
Between August 26 and September 7, 1903, a series of articles appeared in Znamya, a newspaper published in St. Petersburg, Russia. The message was explosive: a global conspiracy by which Jews meant to conquer the world. The plot was detailed in the supposedly verbatim record of 24 meetings of the secret Jewish government - the Learned Elders - said to have taken place during an 1897 Zionist congress in Basel, Switzerland. How meetings of a "secret government" went unnoticed by the throng of journalists covering the congress was left unsaid.
The Elders' goal, according to the Protocols, was a Messianic Age when the world would be united under Judaism and ruled by a member of the House of David. The blueprint for action: Corrupt the young by subversive education. Dominate people through their vices - foster drunkenness and prostitution.
Religion would be discredited, war fomented, pestilence let loose around the world. Starving, the masses would rise up to "shed the blood of those whom they envy"and loot their property. Then, finally, the Jews would step in - taking charge as the saviors of civilization.
But suppose the Gentiles found out about this diabolical intrigue and tried to thwart it? The Elders had prepared a terrible retribution: They would blow up all the great capitals from the tunnels of the underground railways beneath them. All Gentiles would be ruined.
In Russia, publication of the Protocols would fan an ugly hatred. The czar-backed Black Hundreds, an army of thugs, had galloped over the land slaughtering Jews in anti-Semitic pogroms. In the civil war after the Bolshevik revolution, czarist loyalists distributed copies of the Protocols, inciting massacres. Between 1918 and 1921, an estimated 30,000 to 200,000 Jews were killed in Russia.
Starting in the 1920's, the Protocols became a world-famous document and was widely distributed. The publication of the Protocols in Britain in 1920 caused an uproar and a surge of anti-Semitism. One magazine called for the exclusion of Jews from government. The London Times asked: "What are these ëProtocols'? Are they authentic? If so, what malevolent assembly concocted these plans?
A year later a Times correspondent established beyond doubt that the Protocols was a fraud. It had been plagiarized - in some cases almost word-for-word - from a veiled attack on Napoleon III published in 1864. Forgers simply had taken the schemes attributed to the French emperor and put them in the mouths of the imaginary Elders from Zion.
Further investigations by Russian historian Vladimir Burtsev disclosed that the fabrication had been concocted by the czar's secret police. Why? To magnify the image of the Jews as the devil and to stir anti-Jewish sentiment that would distract the masses from demands for reform and revolution.
Unmasking the hoax did little to slow its proliferation. Soon millions of copies were available in 17 different languages, and the endorsement of American automobile magnate Henry Ford introduced the Protocols to a new audience in the United States.
Ford's newspaper ran anti-Semitic articles incorporating the Protocols. Eventually the articles were published as a book called The International Jew: The World's Foremost Problem, of which some 500,000 U.S. copies were distributed.
The book caused a storm of protest. But not until 1927, when he faced a libel suit and sharply falling sales of his Model T auto, did Ford repudiate The International Jew. Still, he could not call back hundreds of thousands - perhaps millions - of copies in circulation worldwide, or stop hatemongers from claiming Henry Ford as one of their own.
Nowhere did the Protocols more crucially influence events than in Germany. In his autobiographical Mein Kampf (My Struggle), Adolf Hitler called it "incomparable". That it had been judged a forgery was to him "the best proof that it is genuine".
He knew how to rub raw the wounds of Germany's World War I defeat. Who had created the ruinous inflation by which people's wages were rendered valueless? "According to the Protocols of Zion," Hitler told willing listeners, "the people are to be reduced to submission by hunger."
The Protocols gave critical impetus to the nascent Nazi movement. Hitler had probably read the book by the early 1920's, and was soon preaching a Jewish world conspiracy. By 1932, exploiting the economic crisis and accusing the Jews of every calamity that ever befell the German people, the Nazis were able to win more than ten million votes in the national elections. A year later Hitler was appointed chancellor.
The Protocols was endlessly reprinted by the pro-Nazis. By 1933, a translations use by the Nazi Party had gone through 13 editions; a preface said that it was "the duty of every German to study the terrifying avowal of the Elders of Zion and then to draw the necessary conclusions."
Once in power, Nazi leaders freely invoked the Protocols to justify anti-Semitic laws. The first was a state-sponsored boycott of Jewish stores. Soon, propagandists used the Protocols and the Jewish world conspiracy concept to enact the infamous Nuremberg Laws stripping Jews of their civil rights. Nazi death camp guards observed by psychologist and camp survivor Bruno Bettelheim were found to believe in the paranoid vision of the Jewish world conspiracy promulgated by the Protocols.
The Nazis' murder of six million Jews showed the world the harvest of hatred the Protocols sowed - and should have been its death knell. But it reappeared with new strength in the Middle East, where it has become a major propaganda tool of aggressive Islamic fundamentalist groups.
In 1970, the Protocols topped the best-seller list in Lebanon. In 1985, the Iranian government published the book with a laudatory introduction. The current charter of Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist group that last October kidnapped and killed a young Israeli soldier and bombed a bus, killing 22 passengers, repeatedly cites the Protocols.
"The Protocols gives Muslim anti-Semitism its theoretical underpinning," says Daniel Pipes, editor of the Middle East Quarterly.
Now it has metastasized from the Middle East to parts of Asia. In Europe and South America, wherever there appears even a fringe resurgence of xenophobic nationalism, the Protocols is sure to follow.
The core concepts of anti-Semitism do not change, but methods of dissemination do. In Holland, Sweden, Austria and other European countries, neo-Nazis have begun using computer bulletin boards, electronic mailboxes and computer games to spread their anti-Semitic messages.
The most prolific American peddler of hate is Gary Rex Lauck, whose mail-order operation in Lincoln, Nebraska, pumps a steady stream of vicious anti-Semitic pamphlets, stickers, video and audio cassettes into an international market. The Protocols is just one of the publications on his list.
"Wherever there is an organized white supremacist or an anti-Semitic group," says William Korey, who served for many years as policy director for B'nai B'rith, an international Jewish organization founded in New York City in 1843, "it can be assumed that it is an outgrowth of, or inspired by this seminal work of race hatred."
Astonishingly, the Protocols has now also been embraced by African-American influenced by black Muslim demagogues. In November 1993, at Kean College, a taxpayer-funded school in New Jersey, Khalid Abdul Muhammad said in a speech that the Jews had it coming to them - "You see everybody always talk about Hitler exterminating six million Jews ... don't nobody ever ask what did they do to Hitler." The Protocols has been sold at such speeches by Nation of Islam devotees.
In the land of its birth, there has been a surge of new editions of the Protocols. Major General Viktor Filatov, former editior of the Russian army's journal, once called it "a normal piece of literature, like the Bible or the Koran."
In early 1971, the Patriotic Front Pamyat, an ultra-nationalist group, serialized the Protocols in its newspaper, Pamyat. To the Jewish Gazette, a Moscow journal, that was reason to list Pamyat in its roundup of the anti-Semitic press in Russia. In response, Pamyat's leader, D. D. Vasiliev, filed a libel suit against the Gazette, demanding 20 million rubles ($20,000) for "damage to its honor and dignity." Through the subsequent trial, the Gazette's defense was simple: the Protocols is an anti-Semitic forgery.
On November 26, 1993, as Judge Valentina Belikova prepared to render her verdict, there was hope that Russia would help erase a historical sin and declare the Protocols false. But not a word about the case appeared in its Russian press, nor were there comments from any government officials. "The court decides,"said Judge Belikova, "to reject the claim of the newspaper Pamyat and D. D. Vasiliev against the Jewish Gazette for expenses incurred.
That is all. The verdict as read from the bench did not mention the Protocols. A later, expanded finding says that it is not within the court's jurisdiction "to determine the authenticity or inauthenticity of this work."
There has been some fear that a court ruling on the authenticity of the Protocols could turn a civil libel case into a political firestorm. Judge Belikova had been asked by an aide to Alexey II, patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, not to involve the church by calling any church officials as witnesses. To those observers hoping the trial would finally discredit the Protocols, the verdict was a disappointment.
And so a golden opportunity to break the stranglehold of the Protocols on Russians gullible enough to believe in it has been lost. The Protocols projects a grossly delusional view of the world - one that has found expression in murder and torture beyond imagining. It lives on in constant repetition of the same big lie.
Civilized people fight on. "It is our responsibility to go after this blight," says Korev. "The past hundred years have taught us that a lie will not die out by itself."

The "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", the most notorious and most successful work of modern antisemitism, draws on popular antisemitic notions which have their roots in medieval Europe from the time of the Crusades. The libels that the Jews used blood of Christian children for the Feast of Passover, poisoned the wells and spread the plague were pretexts for the wholesale destruction of Jewish communities throughout Europe. Tales were circulated among the masses of secret rabbinical conferences whose aim was to subjugate and exterminate the Christians, and motifs like these are found in early antisemitic literature.
The conceptual inspiration for the Protocols can be traced back to the time of the French Revolution at the end of the 18th century. At that time, a French Jesuit named Abbe Barruel, representing reactionary elements opposed to the revolution, published in 1797 a treatise blaming the Revolution on a secret conspiracy operating through the Order of Freemasons. Barruel's idea was nonsense, since the French nobility at the time was heavily Masonic, but he was influenced by a Scottish mathematician named Robison who was opposed to the Masons. In his treatise, Barruel did not himself blame the Jews, who were emancipated as a result of the Revolution. However, in 1806, Barruel circulated a forged letter, probably sent to him by members of the state police opposed to Napoleon Bonaparte's liberal policy toward the Jews, calling attention to the alleged part of the Jews in the conspiracy he had earlier attributed to the Masons. This myth of an international Jewish conspiracy reappeared later on in 19th century Europe in places such as Germany and Poland.
The direct predecessor of the Protocols can be found in the pamphlet "Dialogues in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu", published by the non-Jewish French satirist Maurice Joly in 1864. In his "Dialogues", which make no mention of the Jews, Joly attacked the political ambitions of the emperor Napoleon III using the imagery of a diabolical plot in Hell. The "Dialogues" were caught by the French authorities soon after their publication and Joly was tried and sentenced to prison for his pamphlet.
Joly's "Dialogues", while intended as a political satire, soon fell into the hands of a German antisemite named Hermann Goedsche writing under the name os Sir John Retcliffe. Goedsche was a postal clerk and a spy for the Prussian secret police. He had been forced to leave the postal work due to his part in forging evidence in the prosecution against the Democratic leader Benedict Waldeck in 1849. Goedsche adapted Joly's "Dialogues" into a mythical tale of a Jewish conspiracy as part of a series of novels entitled "Biarritz", which appeared in 1868. In a chapter called "The Jewish Cemetery in Prague and the Council of Representatives of the Twelve Tribes of Israel", he spins the fantasy of a secret centennial rabbinical conference which meets at midnight and whose purpose is to review the past hundred years and to make plans for the next century.
Goedsche's plagiary of Joly's "Dialogues" soon found its way to Russia. It was translated into Russian in 1872, and a consolidation of the "council of representatives" under the name "Rabbi's Speech" appeared in Russian in 1891. These works no doubt furnished the Russian secret police (Okhrana) with a means with which to strengthen the position of the weak Czar Nicholas II and discredit the reforms of the liberals who sympathized with the Jews. During the Dreyfus case of 1893-1895, agents of the Okhrana in Paris redacted the earlier works of Joly and Goedsche into a new edition which they called the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion". The manuscript of the Protocols was brought to Russia in 1895 and was printed privately in 1897.
The Protocols did not become public until 1905, when Russia's defeat in the Russo-Japanese War was followed by the Revolution in the same year, leading to the promulgation of a constitution and institution of the Duma. In the wake of these events, the reactionary "Union of the Russian Nation" or Black Hundreds organization sought to incite popular feeling against the Jews, who they blamed for the Revolution and the Constitution. To this end they used the Protocols, which was first published in a public edition by the mystic priest Sergius Nilus in 1905. The Protocols were part of propaganda campaign which accompanied the pogroms of 1905 inspired by the Okhrana. A variant text of the Protocols was published by George Butmi in 1906 and again in 1907. The edition of 1906 was found among the Czar's collection, even though he had already recognized the work as a forgery. In his later editions, Nilus claimed that the Protocols had been read secretly at the First Zionist Congress at Basle in 1897, while Butmi in his edition wrote that they had no connection with the new Zionist movement, but rather were part of the Masonic conspiracy.
In the civil war following the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, the reactionary White Armies made extensive use of the Protocols to incite widespread slaughters of Jews. At the same time, Russian emigrants brought the Protocols to western Europe, where the Nilus edition served as the basis for many translations, starting in 1920. Just after its appearance in London in 1920, Lucien Wolf exposed the Protocols as a plagiary of the earlier work of Joly and Goedsche, in a pamphlet of the Jewish Board of Deputies. The following year, in 1921, the story of the forgery was published in a series of articles in the London Times by Philip Grave, the paper's correspondent in Constantinople. A whole book documenting the forgery was also published in the same year in America by Herman Bernstein. Nevertheless, the Protocols continued to circulate widely. They were even sponsored by Henry Ford in the United States until 1927, and formed an important part of the Nazis' justification of genocide of the Jews in World War II.

Subject: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion
One of the most definitive works on the referenced subject is available at:
The notion of a secret Jewish conspiracy seeking to control the world manifests itself again and again. Promoted by anti-Semites from time immemorial, such theories were organized about a hundred years ago into The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, one of the most effective tools of anti-Jewish forces ever. Fact or Fraud: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a new book published by AMI-Jerusalem Center for Biblical Studies and Research, in cooperation with the Anti-Defamation League, traces the roots of the notorious Protocols. Written by Judaic studies scholar Dr. Goran Larsson, Director of the Swedish Theological Institute in Jerusalem, Fact or Fraud exposes the falsehoods of this insidious myth, and shows why so many people continue to believe it.

The "Protocols" are so well known that there's an entry on them in The Columbia Encyclopedia, generally recognized as the standard one-volume encyclopedia in America. Here's what the entry says:
PROTOCOLS OF THE ENDERS OF ZION, a fraudulent document that reported the alleged proceedings of a conference of Jews in the late 19th century, at which they discussed plans to overthrow Christianity through subversion and sabotage and to control the world. The Protocols first appeared in their entirety in Russia in 1905. They were widely disseminated in the 1920s and became a classic defense for anti-Semitism. First published in the United States in 1929, the Protocols were championed by Henry Ford in his newspaper, the Dearborn independent, and cited throughout the 1930s by some anti-Roosevelt and fascist groups. As early as 1921, the English journalist Philip Graves exposed the similarity between the Protocols and a political satire by Maurice Joly, Dialogue aux enfers entre Machiavel et Montesquieu (1864). Subsequent investigation showed the original document to be a forgery written by members of the Russian secret police. See Herman Bernstein, The Truth about the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" (1935, reprinted 1972); Norman Cohn, Warrant for Genocide (1967, reprinted 1970).
