The Protocols of Zion: Introduction and Synopsis
“There remains a small space to cross before all states of Europe will be locked in the coils of the symbolic snake, by which we symbolize our people, as in a powerful vice.”
Many people think “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” is anti-Semitic “hate literature” and a fraud.
Nobel Prize winner Alexander Solzhenitsyn wrote that the book exhibits “the mind of genius.” Pretty good for a hoax, wouldn’t you say?
Solzhenitsyn said it exhibits “great strength of thought and insight… Its design… (increasing freedom and liberalism, which is terminated in social cataclysm)…is well above the abilities of an ordinary mind… It is more complicated than a nuclear bomb.”
I believe the Protocols are genuine. They are lectures addressed to Jewish Freemasons (probably at the Mizraim Lodge in Paris) detailing an incredible plan to overthrow Western Civilization, subjugate mankind, and concentrate “all the wealth of the world… in our hands.” They were given as a regular series of workshops to these Masons in Paris. The author describes them as an “exposition of our programme” and often begins by saying, “Today we will discuss…”
Those who think the Protocols were delivered at the First Zionist Congress in Basel in 1897 are sadly mistaken. This is not information that the average Jew was privy to. There were over 200 delegates at that conference along with 26 members of the press.
Rabbi Ehrenpries, (1869-1951) the Chief Rabbi of Sweden from 1910-1951, reportedly wrote in 1924: “Long have I been well acquainted with the contents of the Protocols, indeed for many years before they were ever published in the Christian press. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion were in point of fact not the original Protocols at all, but a compressed extract of the same. Of the 70 Elders of Zion, in the matter of origin and of the existence of the original Protocols, there are only ten men in the entire world who know.” (Quoted without source online in “1001 Quotations About Jews.”)
This “compressed extract” is confirmed by the widespread use of ellipsis–indicating words have been left out. Researchers have speculated that Adam Weishaupt, Theodore Herzl or Asher Ginzberg penned the Protocols. At first, I thought it was Meyer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1844) himself. Later I thought it might be Lionel Nathan Rothschild (1809- 1879) or James de Rothschild (1792-1868) or Adolphe Cremieux (1796-1880.) It’s hard to pinpoint because I think this document was revised by different hands.
Protocols 20-23, the “financial programme… the crowning and the decisive point of our plans” is the reason I think the author was a banker and probably a Rothschild. These lectures require a detailed knowledge of finance and profound psychological insight. Moreover the author states that all power ultimately will reside in the “King of the Jews,” which is how the Rothschilds were known. As you read this, it will be evident that much of this programme has taken effect.
Protocol One Refers to the plan as “our system.” Says men are governed “by force”: “By the law of nature, right lies in might.” Most men are willing to betray their fellow man for profit. (The “end justifies the means” is the Communist motto.) The promise of “freedom” (i.e. liberalism, reform, revolution) is used to take power from the Old Order (monarch, landed aristocracy, church, army) and transfer it to our hands, the power of “Gold” and the despotism of Capital which is entirely in our hands.”
The State is dependent on us, or it “goes to the bottom.” If the state can be ruthless in subjecting an external foe, surely an “internal foe” i.e. Masonic Jews, who are “the destroyer of society and the commonweal” are justified in using any form of subterfuge. Morality is an obstacle to successful conquest and a liability to any political leadership.
The goal is to “scatter to the winds all existing forces for order and regulation” and to become the “sovereign lord” of those so stupid as to lay down their powers and fall for liberal entreaties. Their power is “more invincible” by virtue of “remaining invisible” until insurmountable. This is a “strategic plan from which we cannot deviate” or risk “seeing the labour of many centuries brought to naught.”
“Our countersign is–Force and Make-believe” i.e. deception. The writer emphasizes that the goal is to “seize the property of others” and “bring all governments into subjection to our super government.”
The words “Liberty, Fraternity, Equality” were “baits” the Masonic Jews used “from ancient times” to overthrow “the genealogical aristocracy of the goyim” which was the peoples’ only defence. It will be replaced by the “aristocracy of money.”
Throughout history they have played upon the greed, lust and vanity of men to ensnare their agents. In other words, “democracy” is a perfect instrument for their covert control. Monarchs were much harder to subvert. Democracy, the “replacing of representatives of the people” has “placed them at our disposal” and “given us the power of appointment.”
Protocol Two: “Wars as far as possible should not result in any territorial gains,” but should demonstrate to both sides their dependence on “our international agentur” [i.e. agents] which “possess millions of eyes ever on the watch and unhampered by any limitations whatsoever.”
This implies they control the outcome of wars and have millions of spies (Masons, Jews?) “Our international right will then wipe out national rights…” as the civil law of states rule their subjects. Gentile leaders (“administrators”) will be chosen for their strict obedience and will be run by “advisors.” The goyim “can amuse themselves until the hour strikes…”
We have implanted the false doctrines “by means of our press arousing blind confidence in these theories.” “Think carefully of the successes we arranged for Darwinism, Marxism, Nietzchism. To us Jews, at any rate, it should be plain to see what a disintegrating effect these directives have had upon the minds of the goyim.”
The Press has fallen into our hands. It fashions the thought of the people. Its role is to express and create discontent. Thanks to the Press, we have the Gold in our hands though we sacrificed many of our people. Each… in the sight of God is worth “a thousand goyim.”
Protocol Three: “We have made a gulf between the far-seeing Sovereign Power and the blind force of the people so that both have lost all meaning, for like the blind man and his stick, both are powerless apart.”
“Of States we have made gladiatorial arenas where a host of confused issues contend….” “We appear on the scene as the alleged saviours of the worker… and we suggest that he should enter the ranks of our fighting forces–Socialists, Anarchists, Communists– to which we always give support in accordance with an alleged brotherly rule (of the solidarity of all humanity) of our social masonry. The aristocracy… was interested in seeing the workers were well fed, healthy and strong. We are interested in just the opposite–in the diminution, the killing out of the goyim.”
Protocol Four:“Who and what is in a position to overthrow an invisible force? And this is precisely what our force is. Gentile masonry blindly serves as a screen for us and our objects but the plan of action of our force, even its abiding place, remains for the whole people an unknown mystery” Freedom would be possible if it rested “upon the foundation of faith in God, upon the brotherhood of humanity, unconnected with the conception of equality, which is negated by the the very laws of creation…” “This is the reason why it is indispensable for us to undermine all faith, to tear out of the minds of the goyim the very principle of Godhead and the spirit, and to put in its place …material needs.” Goyim must have no time to think but rather must be diverted to industry and trade.
“All nations will be swallowed up in the pursuit of gain and in the race for it, will not take note of their common foe.” We must put industry on a “speculative basis” so wealth will pass to our classes. The rat race will create, no has already created “disenchanted, cold and heartless communities.” This materialism will allow us to direct the lower classes of the goyim against our rivals for power “the privileged and… the intellectuals of the goyim.”
