The Protocols of the Elders of Zion – Hoax or Reality?

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on May 28, 2007

The Source and the Reason

In 1864 French satirist Maurice Joly wrote a novel titled “Dialouge in Hell between Machiavelli and Montesquieu: or the Politics of Machiavelli int he nineteenth century” for those of you who read French – here’s a free E-book.

In 1899 or 1901 a Russian secret agent of the Orahka branch in Paris was ordered to write something that would discredit the Bolshevihks. He used Maurice Joly’s novel as a base for his fantasies. So how come the Jewish people were implicated?

Well the author – Matvei Golovinski – also got his hands on another novel. “Biarritz” written by Herrman Goedsche in 1868, in which Goedsche describes a fictional nightly meeting of Rabbinical representatives of the 12 tribes of Israel consorting with the Devil to plan a Jewish Conspiracy.

The chapter “The Jewish Cemetery in Prague” in “Biarritz” was documented as non-fictional in France in 1871, and reached Russia in 1872. The rest is history.

The only thing in the Protocols that identify the alleged authors behind it as Jewish is the use of the word “goyim” (gentiles) – and in this way it is both rather moderate and insidious, because “goyim” is probably the most well known Hebrew word out-side the Jewish Community it would send the message without much problem.

So why implicate the Jews? Because they were there. And because there already was a strong Anti-Jewish sentiment in Russia and in Europe at the time. In 1881-1884 Russia was engulfed in Anti-Jewish riots following the assassination of Tsar Alexander II, which was alleged to have been carried out by Jews (the truth of this has later been investigated and found to be false – the only Jewish element in that assassination was the fact that one of the assassins had a Jewish friend…).

It becomes pretty clear against this background that the Protocols had to “target” the Jews. Especially since a large number of Bolshevihks were indeed Jewish – and the Tsarists needed a “diversion” – something that would stir up enough emotions in the general Russian Public to hold off the Revolutionary elements that were threatening the Russian Empire.

“Conspiracy theories are very “nice” – because they create a simply picture of complex matters, and they contain enough elements of plausibility to be believable. And they provide people with a scape-goat for the world’s ills. It doesn’t matter if it’s religious conspiracies, political conspiracies or just alien conspiracies – they all serve as proxy for a sense of powerlessness and in the right hands they can be deadly…”

It is rather interesting how a French Novel that was meant to expose the Napoleon Empire came to play such a big role in the Russian Revolution…

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion has been debunked and re-debunked so many times by so many that I really don’t need to do it again – I’ll just leave you with some links to Web Sites that discuss the Protocols.

I will be back and deal with the particulars – such as the Banks, the Media in terms of their place in the Protocols.

Lock up the victims and let the perps run rampant…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on April 21, 2007

“It is nice that the university is taking care of us, but on the other hand it’s absurd that our freedom is being limited because of some militant groups,” said Liah Ganeline, a second-year medical student from Israel.

In a normal, democratic country the authorities don’t obey the interests of these groups, but on the contrary protect people from them,” she told The Associated Press by telephone.” Moscow Dorms Shut Before Hitler Birthday

It has become rule that Right-Wing and Left-Wing Extremists are “protected” by the Law Enforcement, not their victims, not only in Russia, but generally all over Europe. Despite the fact that f.i Neo-Nazi Groups are forbidden in some European Countries.

The incident 2007 in Moscow is not an isolated event.

Honestly, I am all for people exercising their democratic human rights – but to lock up the potential victims of such exercise is simply ridiculous. It sends the massage that those Extremists are in the right, that their message is sacrosanct, not the lives and activities of those who they would violate.

What is surprising here is the apparent lack of knowledge of history displayed by the Associated Press and Central News 13 in this article – Santayana’s “He who does not learn from History is condemned to repeat it.” comes to mind. One should be able to expect historical accuracy from one the World’s largest News Agencies:

“Russia has seen a marked rise in racism and xenophobia over the past several years, with nonwhite or dark-skinned residents, foreigners and Jews bearing the brunt of the violence. According to the human rights center Sova, which monitors xenophobia, 53 people were killed in 2006 and 460 others were injured in apparent hate crimes.”

I am sorry AP – where have you been the last 200 years? It cannot have been on planet Earth. It’s not like anti-semitism, racism and xenophobia has ever NOT been rampant in Russia. The Jews in Russia have always been discriminated against – the masses of Jewish immigrants to the US is plenty of evidence of that.

We shouldn’t forget the millions and millions of any kind of dissidents, foreigners, “…nonwhite or dark-skinned residents, foreigners and Jews…” imprisoned, murdered and harrassed during the rule of the Soviet Dictators.

A long history of condoning xenophobia and anti-semitism in the sly doesn’t work as a very good excuse for continuing the practice, even if what used to be Politically InCorrect has now become Politically Correct and therefore more visible. Visibility only confirms it.

When I read this kind of News I begin to appreciate the Swedish Law Enforcement practices of surrounding any demonstrations by the Extreme Right or Extreme Left, leading them on a pre-set route – under the pretense of “protecting them from opponents” – if that is what they(the Extremists) want to believe, as long as they are kept in check away from decent folk, that’s all ok with me *lol*.
