July 11, 1968
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A new and large edition of the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” is being financed by King Feisal of Saudi Arabia. The long-discredited “Protocols,” a virulent anti-Semitic publication purporting to be of Jewish origin, has been published in Russia and has appeared in various forms since the beginning of the century.

Sources disclose that 200,000 copies are being printed in French, most of them destined for French-speaking Africa. Distribution by Arab League offices has already begun. Another 100,000 issues are being prepared in English, Spanish, Italian and Arabic. The “Protocols” have been freshly edited by the “Islamic Institute for Research and Publication” in Beirut.
