The Protocols of the Learned Elders of ZION may be briefly described as a blueprint for the domination of the world by a secret brotherhood. Whatever may be the truth about their authorship - and, as will be shown, this has been the subject of bitter dispute - there can be no doubt that the world society to which they look forward is nothing more or less that a world police state.
The book is which the Protocols were first embodied was published by Professor Sergyei A. Nilus in Russia in 1905, a copy being received in the British Museum on August 10th, 1906, Professor Nilus's concern was to expose that he be lieved to be a ruthless, cold-blooded conspiracy for the destruction of Christian CIVILIZATION. Early, in August and September of 1903, the Russian newspaper SNAMIA had pub lished the Protocols, and they are also believed to have been published in the winter of 1902/1903 in the newspaper MOSKOWSKIJA WIEDOMOSTI. They remained unknown outside Russia, however, until after the Bolshevik Revolution, when Russian emigrants brought Nilus's book to North America and Germany.
The similarity between what was forecast in the Protocols and the fate which had befallen Russia under the Bolsheviks was so marked that, after these long years of neglect, they rapidly became one of the most famous (or notorious) documents in the world.
In Bolshevik Russia, the penalty for their mere possession was death. It remains so to this day, both in the Soviet Union and in the Satellite countries. Outside the Iron Curtain, in South Africa possession of the Protocols is also forbidden by law, although the penalty is less drastic.
As a result of their rapidly growing fame, numerous attempts were made to discredit the Protocols as a forgery. But it was not until 1933 that the JEWS resorted to legal action. On 26th June, 1933, the FEDERATION of JEWISH COMMUNITY brought an action against five members of the Swiss National Front, seeking a judgment that the Protocols were a forgery and a prohibition of their publication. The procedure of the Court was astounding, the provisions of the Swiss Civil Code being deliberately set aside. Sixteen witnesses called by the plaintiffs were heard, but only one of the forty witnesses called by the defendants was allowed a hearing. The judge allowed the plaintiffs to appoint two private stenographers to keep the register of proceedings during the hearing of their witnesses, instead of entrusting the task to a Court official.
In view of these and similar irregularities, it was not surprising that, after the case had lasted just on two years, the Court pronounced the Protocols to be a forgery and demoralizing literature. The decision was given on 14th May, 1935, but it was announced in the JEWISH PRESS before it was delivered by the Court!
On 1st November, 1937, the Swiss Court of Criminal Appeal quashed this judgment in its entirety. JEWISH PROPAGANDISTS, however, still declare that the Protocols have been "proved" to be a forgery.
It is natural that the JEWS should try to discredit the Protocols, for their growing fame was focusing more public attention on other revealing utterances.
In Disraeli's THE LIFE OF LORD GEORGE BENTINCK, written in 1852, there occurs this quotation: "The influence of the JEWS may be traced in the last outbreak of the destructive principle in Europe. An insurrection takes place against tradition and aristocracy, against religion and property. Destruction of the Semitic principles, extirpation of the JEWISH RELIGION, whether in the Mosaic or the CHRISTIAN form the natural equality of men and the abrogation of property are proclaimed by the Secret Societies which form Provisional Governments and men of the JEWISH RACE are found at the head of every one of them. The people of God cooperate with atheists; the most skillful accumulators of property ally themselves with Communists; the peculiar and chosen Race touch the hand of all the scum and low castes of Europe; and all this because they wish to destroy that ungrateful Christendom which owes to them its name, and whose tyranny they can no longer endure."
Max Norday, a JEW, speaking at the ZIONIST CONGRESS at Basel in August 1903, made this astonishing "prophecy":
"Let me tell you the following words as if I were shoeing you the rungs of a ladder leading upward and upward: Herzl, the ZIONIST CONGRESS, the English Uganda proposition, the future world war, the peace conference, where with the help of England a free and JEWISH PALESTINE will be creat ed."
Walter Rathenau, the JEWISH BANKER behind the Kaiser, writing in the German WIENER FREIE PRESSE, December 24, 1912, said:
"Three hundred men, each of who knows all the others, govern the fate of the European continent, and they elect their successor from their entourage."
Confirmation of Rathenau's statement came twenty years later in 1931 when Jean Izoulet, a prominent member of the JEWISH ALLIANCE ISRAELITE UNIVERSELLE, wrote in his PARIS LA CAPITALAE DES RELIGIONS:
"The meaning of the history of the last century is that today 300 JEWISH FINANCIER, all Masters of Lodges, rule the world."
The LONDON JEWISH CHRONICLE, on April 4th, 1919, declared:
"There is much in the fact of Bolshevism itself, in the fact that so many JEWS are BOLSHEVISTS, in the fact that the ideals of Bolshevism at many points are consonant with the finest ideals of Judaism." and on March 15th, 1923, the JEWISH WORLD asserted: "Fundamentally JUDAISM is ANTI-CHRISTIAN."
These and many similar assertions from JEWISH sources were damaging enough from the JEWISH point of view. Taken in conjunction with the Protocols, with which more and more people were becoming familiar, they were damning.
The attitude of many people whose concern over the growing attack on CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION was rapidly increasing was summed up by the late Henry Ford senior, the founder of the world-famous motor manufacturing company. In an interview published in the New York World on February 17th, 1921, Mr. Ford declared:
"The only statement I care to make about the Protocols is that they fit in with what is going on. They are sixteen years old, and have fitted the world situation up to this time. THEY FIT IT NOW."
Those who, like Henry Ford, could see that "they fit it now" only sixteen years after Nilus's first publication of the Protocols, naturally tended to concentrate their attention on the relatively recent phenomenon of Bolshevism. Few of them the understood the equally dangerous, if more insidious, danger of internationalism.
Now, however, more than half a century after Nilus's publication of the Protocols, the reality of that danger must be crystal clear to anybody who views the world situation objectively.
The Protocols are full of references to a "SuperGovernment," PROTOCOL VI, for example, states:
"In every possible way we must develop the significance of our Super-Government by representing it as the Protector and Benefactor of all those who voluntarily submit to us."
That is exactly the way in which the United Nations special agencies - UNESCO (U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization); ILO (International Labour Organization); WHO (World Health Organization); FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization); Commission of Human Rights; Genocide Convention, etc. - are represented.
For some years there has been in existence an international organization calling itself the World Association of Parliamentarians for World Government, which pursues the same objective as that of another long-established international organization, Federal Union. This body does not disuse the fact that the United Nations, by means of a few relatively minor changes in its Charter, could be transformed virtually over night into a World Government.
There has long been agitation for the creation of a World Police Force. This would enable the United Nations Super-Government to function as a master of an all-powerful World Police State, and the closing years of the 1950's have seen the agitators for a World Police Force come close to achieving their objective. The U.N. Emergency Force, established after the Suez crisis of 1956, has been openly regarded as a "pilot scheme."
Should the few changes in the Charter necessary to transform the U.N. into a Super-Government be made, it will have in the special agencies ready made Ministries of Education (or Propaganda), Labor, Health, Food and Agriculture, "Justice", etc.
Can it be an accident that these things are so accurately for-shadowed in the Protocols?
The full-scale World Super-Government is not the only, nor perhaps the most immediate, danger. It is obvious to everyone that the nations of the East are being herded into subjection under the dominance of the Soviet Union. But what of the nations of the West? Are they really the "free nations" which they are popularly supposed to be?
Far from it! They are being herded into that same sort of pen as are the nations of the East under Communism. Late in 1957, the process had gone for enough to be given an official name. That name was the policy of inter-dependence."
The nations of the West are being brought under international control at political, military and economic levels. They are rapidly in process of becoming controlled also on the social level. All alike are being told that their only hope lies in the surrender of national sovereignty.
National Parliaments must give way to such bodies as the Council of Europe or the Atlantic Council. National Forces must be submerged in such bodies as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the Baghdad Pact or the South-East Treaty Organization (SEATO), so that no nation has control over its own means of defense. National economies must be submerged in such bodies as the Organization for European Economic Cooperation (OEEC), the European Payments Union (EPU) or the World Bank, so that no nation may control its own economic destiny.
Even on the social level, individual national distinctions must disappear. For example, under the "Common Market" Treaty which unites six European nations on the economic plane, provision is made for the "equalization of social policies." And strenuous efforts have been made to herd other European nations, Great Britain among them, into this same pen in the associated European Free Trade Area.
In 1934, when the leader of the British Labor Party (Mr. Clement Attlee) told the party's annual conference:
"We are deliberately putting loyalty to a world order above loyalty to our own country," he was widely execrated.
Twenty-three years of propaganda, however, leave their mark, and when, in 1957, a Conservative Prime Minister of Britain told the British people that they must surrender some of their national sovereignty to an unknown international cabal, scarcely a voice was raise in protest. At the close of 1957 there was an official declaration of the British Government's support for the plan which was foreshadowed in the Protocols over sixty years ago. The Earl of Gosford, Joint Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, said in the House of Lords on 7th November, 1957:
"Her Majesty's Government are fully in agreement with World Government. We agree that this must be the goal, and that every step that is humanly possible must be taken to reach that goal."
All over the world "federation", "integration", "regionalization" and "inter-dependence" are the order of the day. All this is foreshadowed in the Protocols, published more than half-a-century ago by Sergyei Nilus, which, we are told are forgery.
Can this be coincidence? Could any forger be so prescient?
Or are the Protocols what Nilus and many others believed them to be - the blueprint for a conspiracy to destroy CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION and place the whole world under the domination of a small, secret cabal?
I - "AGENTURE" and "THE POLITICAL"
There are two words in this translation which are unusual, the words "Agentur" and "political" used as substantives. "Agentur" appears to be adopted from the original test and it means the whole body of agents and agencies directed by the Elders, whether members of the tribe or their GENTILE tools.
By "the Political" is meant not exactly the "body politic" but the entire machinery of politics.
II - The Symbolic Snake of Judaism
Chapter III opens with a reference to the symbolic Snake of Judaism. In his Epilogue to the 1905 Edition of the Protocols Nilus gives the following interesting account of this symbol:
According to the records of secret JEWISH ZIONISM, Solomon and other JEWISH learned men had already, in 929 B.C., thought out a theoretical scheme for the peaceful conquest of the whole universe by ZION.
As history developed, this scheme was worked out in detail and completed by men who were subsequently initiated in this question. The learned men decided by peaceful means to conquer the world for ZION with the slyness of the Symbolic Snake, whose head was to represent those who have been initiated into the plans of the JEWISH PEOPLE - the administration was always kept secret, even from the JEWISH NATION itself. As this Snake penetrated into the hearts of the nations which it encountered it undermined and devoured all the NON-JEWISH power of these States. It is foretold that the Snake has sill to finish its work, strictly adhering to the designed plan, until the course which it has to run is closed by the return of its head to ZION and until, by this means, the Snake has completed its round of Europe and has encircled it - and until, by dint of enchaining Europe, it has encompassed the whole world. This it is to accomplish by using every endeavor to subdue the other countries by an economic conquest.
The return of the head of the Snake to ZION can only be accomplished after the power of all the Sovereigns of Europe has been laid low, that is to say, when by means of economic crises and wholesale destruction effected everywhere, there shall have been brought about a spiritual demoralization and a moral corruption, chiefly with the assistance of JEWISH WOMEN masquerading as French, Italians, etc. These are the surest spreader of licentiousness into the lives of the leading men at the heads of nations.
A map of the course of the Symbolic Snake is shown as follows: Its first stage in Europe was in 429 B.C. in Greece, where, about the time of Pericles, the Snake first started eating into the power of that country. The second stage was in Rome in the time of Augustus, about 69 B.C. The third in Madrid in the times of Charles V, in A.D. 1552. The fourth in Paris about 1790, in the time of Louis XVI. The fifth in London from 1814 onwards (after the downfall of Napoleon). The sixth in Berlin in 1871 after the Franco-Prussian war. The seventh in St. Petersburg, over which is drawn the head of the Snake under the date 1881.
After these states which the Snake traversed have had the foundations of their constitutions shaken, Germany, with its apparent power, forming no exception to the rule. In economic conditions England and Germany are spared by the Snake, on which at present [i.e., 1905] all its efforts are concentrated. The future course of the Snake is not shown on this map, but arrows indicate its next movement towards Moscow, Kiev, and Odessa.
It is now well know to us to what extent the latter cities form the centers of the militant JEWISH RACE. Constantinople is shown as the last of the Snake's course before it reaches Jerusalem.
III - The term "Goyim"
Meaning GENTILES or NON-JEW, is used throughout the Protocols and is retained by Mr. Marsden.
The Protocols -------------
In 1884 the daughter of a Russian general, Mlle. Justine Glinka, was endeavoring to serve her country in Paris by obtaining political information, which she communicated to General Orgevskii in St. Petersburg. For this purpose she employed a Jew, Joseph Schorst, member of the Mizraim Lodge in Paris. One day Schorst offered to obtain for her a document of great importance to Russia, on payment of 2,500 francs. This sum being received from St. Petersburg was paid over and the document handed to Mlle. Glinka. She forwarded the French original, accompanied by a Russian translation, to Orgevskii, who in turn handed it to his chief, General Cherevin, for transmission to the Tsar. But Cherevin, under obligation to wealthy Jews, refused to transmit it, merely filing it in the archives. Meantime there appeared in Paris certain books on Russian court life which displeased the Tsar, who ordered his secret police to discover their authorship. This was falsefy attributed, perhaps with malicious intent, to Mlle. Glinka, and on her return to Russia she was banished to her estate in Orel. To the marechal de noblesse of this district, Alexis Sukhotin, Mlle. Glinka gave a copy of the Protocols. Sukhotin showed the document to two friends, Stepanov and Nilus; the former had it printed and circulated privately in 1897; the second, Professor Sergius A. Nilus, published it for the first time in Tsarskoe-Tselc (Russia) in 1901, in a book entitled The Great Within the Small. Then, about the same time, a friend of Nilus, G. Butmi, also brought it out and a copy was deposited in the British Museum on August 10, 1906. Meantime, through Jewish members of the Russian police, minutes of the proceedings of the Basle congress in 1897 had been obtained and these were found to correspond with the Protocols. In January 1917, Nilus had prepared a second edition, revised and documented, for publication. But before it could be put on the market, the revolution of March 1917 had taken place and Kerenski, who had succeded to power, ordered the whole edition of Nilus's book to be destroyed. In 1924, Prof. Nilus was arrested by the Cheka in Kiev, imprisoned, and tortured; he was told by the Jewish president of the court, that this treatment was meted out to him for "having done them incalculable harm in publishing the Protocols". Released for a few months, he was again led before the G.P.U. (Cheka), this time in Moscow and confined. Set at liberty in February 1926, he died in exile in the district of Vladimir on January 13, 1929.]
