General Antisemitism

Amazon.com customers praise truths of ‘The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion’


Evidently, there’s a new edition of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the notorious antisemitic forgery which warns of a secret plot by Jews to take over the world, and is available at Amazon.com for under $15 (and may be eligible for super-saving free shipping).

While, in fairness, Amazon.com is a mega online shop which sells political books ranging from the extreme left to the extreme right, and is further protected by the U.S. First Amendment to continue doing so, some of the reviews (and publisher book description) are worth noting.

First, look at how the book cover incorporates Zionism into the equation, though the book was first translated into Russian, in its current form, in 1872, 25 years before the First Zionist Congress.

 

Amazon does includes, just below the product image, this message from the Anti-Defamation League:

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, circulated by the Czarist secret police at the turn of the 20th century, is plainly and simply a plagiarized forgery. “The Protocols” has been a major weapon in the arsenals of anti-Semites around the world, republished and circulated by individuals, hate groups and governments to convince the gullible as well as the bigoted that Jews have schemed and plotted to take over the world.

But, following the ADL quote, there is this publisher synopsis:

When the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion were first discovered, Freemasons and Zionist Jews everywhere screamed and complained that these 24 Protocols are a hoax, a forgery, even a blood taint against the Jews. But then came the brutal and barbaric Communist Bolshevik Revolution in Russia and its captive republics, led by covert Masonic Jews Lenin, Trotsky, Kaganovich, and others. The cruel and sinister crimes of the crypto-Jew revolutionaries seemed to have jumped off the pages of the Protocols. The Red Terror, with its torturous massacres of innocent people, its monstrous gulag concentration camps, and the setting up of a Jewish dictatorship, also followed the agenda of the Protocols as did the persecution everywhere of Christians and churches. The entire world witnessed horrors that were a direct result of the heinous prescriptions laid out earlier in the Protocols. Find out how the Protocols are still being worked in our day and how our freedoms, even our very lives, are in jeopardy.

Then we get to the reader reviews, such as these contrasting view points. Note which one garners more favorable reviews.

  1. But what does this have to do with the Guardian? Is it on their recommended reading list? I think not.

    Of course the Elders is a disgusting publication, and there are nutters out there who give it rave reviews – but what is the point of this post?

    • Contaxt?
      For all the anti-Israel bias at the G. – where is the evidence of anti-Semitism?

      The G. has a Jewish podcast and plenty of Jews on its staff.

      The issue is Israel – and in particular the expanding Jews-only (got a problem with that?) settlements – not Jews in general.
      And you really shot yourself in the foot with that recent fake anti-posh (Michael White) diatribe by Israelinurse. That really was a case of clutching at straws.

      The latter was truly pathetic.

        • So Hadley Freeman, Jonathan Friedland and Jason Solomons are Jew haters?

          Unanimous recommendation of this hateful nonsense – but nobody is able to point out exactly which G. staff are Jew haters.

        • Your implication being?

          Same question to you: which Jewish Guardian staff are Jew haters?

          And look at the current G. homepage. No single mention of either Jews or Israel. Where is anti-Semitism thriving at the G.?

          The simple truth is that it isn’t.

          • One unfortunate consequence of the Holocaust is that some gentiles now apparently refuse to recognise anti-Semitism unless presented with a certified photograph of the perpetrators putting Jews in ovens; anything less doesn’t seem to count.

            Are you one of thse, Pretzel?

            • Another appalling comment – and the chimps yet again give it the thumbs up!

              Do you know no shame? I pity people like you with your resentment and self-hatred. I really do.

      • “For all the anti-Israel bias at the G. – where is the evidence of anti-Semitism?”

        This site has been providing it, for years now.

        So why do you bother to spend so much of your time at this site, if you have never understood its basic premise? What’s it to you?

  2. (The following are the contents of two comments that I recently wrote and posted on the blog Israel Thrives (karmafishies.blogspot.com) (on the post: Another Racist Progressive Delegitmizes Israel on Daily Kos). I wrote these comments about the current anti-Jewish racism of very many members of Western societies, and about, involved with that, and as part of that, the current genocidal anti-Jewish racism of many members of Western societies. The contents of these comments that I wrote and posted there I’m posting here in response to comments that were posted, here, by the commenter “pretzelberg”.)

    All of this [the current genocidal anti-Jewish racism of many members of Western societies] was, and is, made possible largely, and most importantly, by, and was, and is, a result largely of, the libelous news coverage, by the Western news mass media, of what is, and what, for over 90 years, has been, the Arab and Muslim racist war against the re-founding of, and subsequently, the existence of, the nation of the Jewish people, Israel. The Western news mass media is, and has been, by lying by omission, and by lying blatantly, propagating libels against Israel which obfuscate the Arab and Muslim racist war against Israel and which vilify Israel. And, most detrimentally, many of the members of the Western news mass-media who are doing so are Jewish. Just like during the Medieval era in Europe (Theobald of Cambridge, et al).

    And Western colleges and universities – in the classroom (via ignorant, indoctrinated, bigoted professors and ignorant, indoctrinated, bigoted, Marxist Radical Leftist racist political activists posing as professors), and on campus (via affiliate organizations of the Muslim Brotherhood, and via Western, ignorant, indoctrinated, racist anti-Jewish so-called “Anti-Zionist”/”Pro-Palestinian” political organizations) – have become hubs of the propagation of perverse genocidal anti-Jewish racist libels against Israel. Just like, in the 1920’s and 1930’s, in Germany, the universities were the hub of the Nazi movement in Germany.

    The Western news mass media and Western academia are complicit. The Western news mass media and Western academia are colluding with, and are engaging in, a racist intendedly genocidal war against the Jewish people.

    Anti-Semitism 2.0, by Mudar Zahran (Mudar Zahran is a ‘Palestinian’ Arab writer and academic who is from Jordan (Arab ‘Palestine’) and who currently resides in the UK as a political refugee)
    http://www.hudson-ny.org/1979/anti-semitism-20

    Excerpt:

    The concept of the “evil Jew” has made a well-disguised comeback: Criticizing Israel and Zionists, is now deemed a legitimate option to cursing Jews and Judaism. Not only is it open, socially acceptable and legal, but it can actually bring prosperity and popularity. This new form of anti-Semitism 2.0 is well-covered-up, harder to trace and poses a much deeper danger to the modern way of life of the civilized world than the earlier crude form of it, as it slowly and gradually works on delegitimizing Jews to the point where it eventually becomes acceptable to target Jews, first verbally, then physically — all done in a cosmopolitan style where the anti-Semites are well-groomed speakers and headline writers in jackets and ties; and not just Arab, but American and European, from “sanitized” news coverage of the most bloodthirsty radicals, to charges against Israel in which facts are distorted, selectively omitted or simply untrue, as in former President Jimmy Carter’s book on Israel…”

    The question is: Why have the members of the Western news mass media and Western academia so readily and enthusiastically willingly believed and propagated such perverse absurd lies that vilify Israel, and why have a huge many of the other members of Western (culturally Christian-European – Christian and post-Christian) societies so readily and enthusiastically willingly believed such perverse absurd lies that vilify Israel?

    The answer is: Why, for approximately two thousand years, have the members of culturally Christian-European societies continuously repeatedly believed and propagated perverse lies that have vilified the Jewish people?: Western (culturally Christian-European – Christian and post-Christian) anti-Jewish racism: The legacy of the perverse racist antipathetic wrong views held about, and propagated about, the Jewish people by the religion of the European peoples, Christianity, as a tenet of that religion: the perverse racist antipathetic wrong view: “The Jews killed Jesus – our God; The Jews are guilty; The Jews are evil”, which is a perverse racist antipathetic wrong view that transmogrified into, and which is currently still held, by many culturally Christian-European – Christian and post-Christian – people, as, the perverse racist antipathetic wrong view: “The Jews are evil powerful deceitful secret controllers of the world; The Jews are liars; The Jews are Guilty”.

    Combat, and dispel, this evil – this vile anti-Jewish racism. The survival of the nation of the Jewish people, and the well-being of the whole world, is at stake.

  3. Play.com also advertises the book. Since I often buy textbooks from them and recommend them to students and trainees, I wrote to them asking them to put a disclaimer onto the page, along the lines that the book is based on a pernicious antisemitic fraud and is responsible for stoking Jew-hatred. I added that it mightn’t do to offend allegedly valued customers in this fashion.

    I got an encouraging reply which said that they would alter the page to reflect my concerns. We shall see

  4. Go on YouTube. Type “Jew”. Type “Israel”. etc.

    Go on Google Type “Jew”. Type “Israel”. etc.

    Look at the comments by YouTube users on the pages of overtly Jewish, and especially overtly Israeli Jewish YouTube users, and especially on the pages of overtly Jewish, and especially overtly Israeli Jewish YouTube users who are presenting the situation that Israel is in.

    The murderous outright Nazi-esque murderous genocide-threatening “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” comments by non-Jewish users is huge and horrifying .

    The Number of Video Views and Likes on grotesques libelous videos depicting Israel as bloodthirsty racist war-like apartheid illigitimate state is huge.

    On YouTube, videos that, and channels of users who post videos that, have presented accurate information about the tenets of Islam, and about the history of Islam, are being flagged and removed.

    Israel, the free liberal democratic, very small, beseiged nation of the Jewish people is being diplomatically and politically attacked and undermined by the members of the foreign policy departments, and governmental intelligence agencies, and political administrations of, the governments of Western countries, and is being libeled and falsely vilified by the journalists and academics of Western countries.

    The number of recorded individual anti-Jewish racist attacks is recorded high levels.

    Individual racist attacks against Jewish people are the most numerous individual racist attacks against any ethnic group in Western states.

    Jewish people are an ethnic and cultural social group.

    There are approximately 14 million Jewish people in the world.

    The number of recorded individual racist attacks against Muslims is at record low levels.

    Muslims are a religious group whose adherents, to various degrees, are adherents of an imperialist supremacist genocidally anti-Jewish racist religious and political ideology, Islam.

    Muslims are not an ethnic group.

    There are approximately 1.5 billion Muslims in the world.

    The Muslim Brotherhood is an ideologically genocidally anti-Jewish, Islamic supremacist political organization that is the largest and most powerful political organizations in the Middle East.

    The members of the foreign policy departments, and governmental intelligence agencies, and political administrations of, the governments of the United States and other Western countries are consulting, and have hired, as political advisors for domestic policies and foreign policies of the government of the United States and other Western countries, members of front groups of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    The largest, and controlling, voting bloc in the United Nations is the OIC (the Organization of the Islamic Conference (recently renamed “Organizations of Islamic Cooperation”)), a cooalition of 57 Muslim governments – 56 Muslim states plus Fatah-PLO-PalestinainAuthority.

    The OIC is passing transnational laws (supported and endorsed by the current U.S. administration), in the U.N. – outlawing any expression of criticism toward Islam and Jihad – including expression of accurate information about Islam and Jihad.

    The current U.S. adminstration recently publicly officially expliciltly endorsed Islamist (the word “Islamists” was literally the term used) political parties in Middle Eastern states, including the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

    The Western media is not only not covering any of this, but is actively propagating lies that glorify Islam and that vilify Israel.

    All of this is just the tip of the Iceberg.

    …and my comment got rated less than 5. Of course.

    • Notification:

      This is a notification just to acknowledge the grammatical errors in my previous comment (such as instances of “s” characters at the end of singular nouns). I made those errors as a result of being distressed.

      Forgive me for not being calm.

      I am not a smug calm callous unthreatened member of a large politically powerful ethnic and cultural social group whose leading members, and whose society, as a whole, have repeatedly committed mass-murder against, and who are currently libeling and participating in an intendedly genocidal campaign against, a particular very small other ethnic and cultural group, and who are doing so with sanctimony.

      I am a member of a very small, libeled, scapegoated, besieged, Stockholm-syndrome experiencing, profoundly good, pariah ethnic group whose psychologically besieged, psychologically traumatized, profoundly good, deeply empathetic, members, in general, could not verbally defend themselves out of a paper bag, and whose political leaders are kowtowing bowing scraping immoral traitors to their own people.

    • History repeats itself.

      Most people don’t understand anything. Therefore, most people don’t know anything. Therefore, most people don’t remember anything. Therefore, most people don’t learn anything. Therefore, history repeats itself.

      However, I hope that, at this time, this will change. I hope that people will become mindful, and that people will become aware of what, in fact, is the case, and I hope that, as a result of that, people will do what’s skillful to be done in order to make things better, and that, as a result of that, things will get better.
