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.
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.
