Syrian Embassy in U.S. Disseminates Notorious Anti-jewish “protocols”

Download PDF for this date

Tourists visiting the Syrian Embassy and consulates for travel literature today reported receiving copies of the anti-Jewish forgery, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.”

The pamphlets are printed in French from plates believed to originate in Nazi Germany. They are given out along with maps and customary travel folders to Americans who inquire about visiting Syria. The “Protocols’, allege to be a blueprint of a Jewish plot for world domination. The forgery originated in Czaris’ Russia in 1905. It was revived in the 1930’s by the Nazis.
