Protocols of the Elders of Zion

The text of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which was originally published in Russia in 1903, is a forgery purporting to be the confidential minutes from secret meetings of Jewish leaders in the last years of the 19th century. Its twenty-four sections spell out alleged secret Jewish plans to take over industries, infiltrate governments and use a stranglehold on the media to advance their hidden agenda at the expense of non-Jews. Although it was thoroughly discredited as a fake, the book continues to inspire antisemites to this day. It is probably the most influential antisemitic text ever written.
