Format: Paperback
The 'Protocols of the Elders of Zion' is one of the most famous and perhaps the most damaging forgery ever done. In this scholarly and informative work the President of the International Organization of Jewish Lawyers and Judges Hadassa Ben-Itto traces the origin and development of the work. What began in the cellars of the nineteenth century Tsarist secret police became a favorite document of the Nazis, and today is spread throughout the world by the evil largesse of Saudi Arabia, and other Islamic groups including Hamas.

In other words this work has been used at various times and places as a means for hating Jews and demanding their destruction.

The Protocols main thesis that there is an international Jewish government planning to take over the world is absurd to anyone who knows the actual history of the Jews in the past two thousand years or even more. The Jews for those two thousand years were by and large a people scattered and persecuted, exiled and stateless. Nonetheless the coming into being of the modern state of Israel, the ingathering of Jews from over a hundred nations has not put an end to the slanderous uses of the Protocols.

In this book Ben- Itto presents the history of the creation of the Protocols - She describes the court trial in Bern in 1934 which exposed the Protocols as falsification: She shows how the deliberately obscure style allows the advocates of this book to link any event to it, no matter what it is: Tzar's family murder or financial crisis.

She shows how this forgery contributed to 1974 UN Resolution that declared Zionism to be one of the types of racism. Now the Protocols are used by Islamic fundamentalists and, in particular, the organization Hamas" that distributes that defamatory piece in the Muslim countries.

Format: Hardcover
This is a great study into the fabrication of a "Jewish Conspiracy" to World domination. People, mostly uneducated from the "Ultra-Right" or Over Educated from the Ultra-Left percieve this mid 19th Century Tzarist Forgery as fact or even attempt to entertain this rubbish. If one might take into the consideration of researching into the origional work will find its relationship to Napolean and his quests. One could develop this same lie about wealthy Non-Jewish families; Rockefellers, Fords, Carnagees, Morgans and many others with the same outcome. Today people do not place any of their reading habbits into researching or dismantling any and all of these rediculous claims even when most are public figures or public corporations which release by law their Corporate information: Jews own the Media, actual fact dictates that Arab/Moslems own far more share in all mainstream media. Jews own the Banking researching the earlier mentioned names, that claim is also a myth and the same trend relates to all of these mythical claims. This work is a good understanding of how this lie was fabricated, for what purposes and shares the factual lies within each. Usually people who entertain this "Protocals" garbage are ignorant and have never read a creditable book on the History of these people and are unlearned on the entire topic of Anti-Semitism which are blindly lead. This is a great book to defute this widely circulated promulgation. Might I suggest Paul Johnson's "A History of the Jews", Marvin Perry's "Anti-Semitism" and Joan Peters "From time Immemorial". All are fabulous, well documented and I'd consider the latter a piece of source material that should be accepted as a text for Academia.

Format: Paperback
The author, a judge, has researched and laid out all the evidence for the reader. Her opus transcends anything written on this subject before. The history of the Protocols and its many manifestations and clones reads like an unfolding mistery. The Lie That Would Not Die continues to resurface: in the crude threats and vituperations of Moslem jihadists and mullahs; in the speeches of so called ambassadors at the United Nations; in the fulminations of "elected" leaders such as the President of

Iran; in schoolbooks throughout Arab and Moslem nations;in the broadcast and printed media; and most lamentably, in the halls of academe even in prestigious Ivy League schools. This is must reading and belongs on the shelves of all libraries and schools.

22 of 31 people found the following review helpful By Alyssa A. Lappen TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 10, 2006
Format: Paperback
Shortly after the 1897, First Zionist Congress, a full transcript was published, according to this masterful book, which capped six years of investigation into the etymology and evil of the 1895 forgery, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. It's a reminder that the U.S. should veto all U.N. resolutions submitting to terrorist demands.

Hezbollah, the Iranian terror group that attacked Israel July 12, believes the Protocols--twice proved an 1895 forgery of Tsarist officials in Paris--are the real First Zionist Congress transcript. This libel so well matches Hezbollah's lethal designs that it collaborated with Iran on a Protocols series, broadcast on Al Manar TV in Lebanon during Ramadan in October 2003, and in Iran in 2004. Ben-Itto here examines the lie's history and continued propagation.

Egypt's culture and information ministry approved another such 41-part TV series that aired in late 2002. U.S. State Department condemnation elicited Minister Safwat El-Sherif's declaration that it "contains no anti-Semitic material." Broadcasts continued. Al-Akhbar's editor called international opprobrium "a barbaric attack on Egyptian and Arab art."

Ben-Itto first encountered the Protocols' political use at the U.N. General Assembly in 1965, while in Israel's delegation to Third Committee deliberations on human rights. Her rebuttal didn't debunk the notorious forgery. A non-Jewish diplomat later chided her, "This book is dangerous."

Indeed. The forgery's anonymous speaker presents "in concise form, a comprehensive program for the annihilation of all Christian states, proposing practical methods for achieving world domination by the Jews.
