  • Elder of Ziyon
On December 27, 2011, the Palestinian-Lebanese historian Bayan Nuwayhed Al-Hout published an article in the Lebanese daily Al-Akhbar, which dealt, among other things, with The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and their connection to Judaism, the Zionist movement and the state of Israel.

In her article, Al-Hout claims that the Protocols are an exact reflection of the Zionist idea and Jewish thought, and that their true essence is a Jewish aspiration to rule the world by various means. Therefore, "the question of the Protocols' authenticity is no longer relevant."

Al-Hout writes: "Those who judge the Protocols by the literal text might find that they [resemble] an imaginary and impractical tale more than a political program. However, those who judge the Protocols by their general spirit and essence will find that they are an exact reproduction of statements and writings by Zionist leaders past and present, and of the principles of the Zionist movement."

According to Al-Hout, "The Zionist idea and the Zionist plans up until the time of Herzl, let alone those that followed, such as [the plans of] Ben Gurion and Begin, are permeated with the spirit of the Protocols and their general essence. Harming democracy and praising dictatorship are cornerstones of the state [envisioned by] Herzl; use of money for political purposes is [this country's] only method. The media, or "the press" in the language of the Protocols, was utilized by Herzl and Zionism, just as [the Protocols instruct]... Western media, and particularly the American media, which is currently controlled by Zionism, is proof of this."

Regarding the link between Judaism and the Protocols, Al-Hout writes: "[The Protocols] completely correspond to [the words of] the great Rabbis throughout the ages, and to the Talmud itself. The Chosen People is a basic Talmudic concept, meaning the people who were chosen to rule and dictate."

The idea that Palestinian Lebanese are anti-semitic is nothing particularly new

What is notable is that this same newspaper's English edition hosts columns by Max Blumenthal, Antony Loewenstein and Ben White,

Think any of them will protest their newspaper publishing anti-semitism - or applaud it?

Anyway, this gives me the opportunity to display a great video on the topic that I haven't shown since 2006, when my readership was a bit smaller than now.
