Dreyfus, The Protocols, and Goldstone

Alan Dershowitz on Judge Goldstone: “But now I see him as a traitor… It’s as if they would have taken a Jew to edit the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. He uses his Jewish last name to kosher his slander of the Jewish People.”

For those who still cannot make their minds up about Jewish nationalism and the Zionist violent abuse of Western academic culture (tolerance, academic freedom, pluralism etc) Rabbi Shmully Hecht of Yale’s University Jewish society, gives an exemplary opportunity to see it all. Rabbi Hecht confronted Judge Goldstone last week while Goldstone was delivering an address at Yale University. Rabbi Hecht and his supporters held up a sign at the back of the conference room equating the Goldstone report with the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the Dreyfus affair.


For a while, the Dreyfus affair and the Protocols were pretty effective Zionist propaganda tools, they were used mainly to silence criticism of Jewish power, Jewish lobbying and Israel. However, it is about time to face the truth.

Drawing a parallel between the Dreyfus affair, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the Goldstone report can also produce an interesting insight, but not for the reasons Rabbi Hecht or Dershowitz suggest. It allows us to look at Zionism in an historical perspective. We can review where Zionism started from and what it matured into.

The Dreyfus affair was a political scandal that divided France in the 1890s and the early 1900s. It involved the conviction for treason in 1894 of Captain Alfred Dreyfus, a young French artillery officer of Jewish descent. The Dreyfus affair had a huge impact on Herzl, the father of Zionism, who was assigned by a Viennese paper to cover the trial. Soon afterward, Herzl wrote Der Judenstaat (The Jewish State, 1896) and founded the World Zionist Organization.

During the last century Zionists regarded the Dreyfus Affair as an exemplary case of anti-Semitism motivated by racial discrimination. In fact, the Zionists were wrong. For a century they have been misleading themselves and others. French society at the time was divided about Dreyfus. The Left and the intelligentsia rushed to support the young officer, which led eventually to a second trial. Dreyfus was exonerated and reinstated as a Major in the French Army in 1906. However, the case of Goldstone is totally different. The images of the IDF’s white phosphorus shells bursting over UN refugee shelters are engraved in our collective memory. As if this is not enough, initial Israeli denial of the usage of white phosphorous is also stored in our minds. The perception that Israel committed a massacre in broad daylight is not going to be wiped out either.

Unlike divided France that couldn’t make up its mind about Dreyfus, we are not divided about Israel being a criminal state and the biggest threat to world peace. The repulsion towards Israel and its brutality is actually a growing unifying force amongst humanists, peace lovers and the world at large. Israel will not be exonerated and considering the fact that it defines itself as the Jewish state, its crimes reflect disastrously on Jews as a collective, something that not even a dozen Jewish anti Zionist activists around the world can change. From an historical perspective it is rather clear that Israel has been very successful in exhausting the last drops of sympathy garnered for the idea of Jewish nationalism. As it happens, not a single humanist stands up against Goldstone or his balanced report.

But the truth must be said. As much as humanists are united behind the Goldstone report, our democratically elected leaders are failing to confront Israel and its Jewish lobbies. They rush to appease AIPAC, they pocket money given by Zionist lords and Israeli Lobbies. Interestingly enough, the political morbid conditions in which we live was actually described by an unusual fictional text that was published in 1903 namely, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

The Protocols is widely considered a forgery. It is a manual for a prospective new member of the “Elders”, describing how they will run the world through control of the media and finance, replacing the traditional social order with one based on mass manipulation. Though the book is considered a hoax by most experts and regarded as a vile anti-Semitic text, it is impossible to ignore its prophetic qualities and its capacity to describe both the century unfolding and the political reality in which we live I am referring here to: AIPAC, the Credit Crunch, Lehman Brothers, Neocon wars, interventionist ideology, a British Foreign Secretary listed as an Israeli Propaganda (Hasbara) author trying to amend Britain’s ethical stand, a Zionist by admission put on an inquiry panel to investigate why Britain launched a Zionist war and so on.

As it happens staunch Zionists such as David Aaronovitch, Nick Cohen, and Alan Dershowitz use a very banal spin to divert the attention from the devastating prophetic reality depicted by The Protocols. A reality in which they themselves promote interventionist wars in our midst. Again and again they stress the fact that The Protocols was a forgery. They insist that we look at its anti-Semitic origin while evading its content and meaning. However whether or not The Protocols is a fictional text or a forgery doesn’t change the fact that it explores our disastrous contemporary reality. A reality in which we are killing en masse the enemies of Israel in the ‘name of democracy’, a reality in which Dershowitz himself puts enormous effort into cleansing academia of any critical voices of Israel, Zionism, and Jewish power in America and the West.

This is exactly where Goldstone is coming into the picture. In the last century we have been witnessing an evolving murderous Jewish nationalist movement. A movement that was born in part due to a calculated misinterpretation of the Dreyfus affair. For a century, the Zionist movement has managed to silence its critics using different tactics that are all explored in that fictional text from 1903. Zionism was very successful; it managed to mature into a state, at the expense of the Palestinian people. Only through violent expansionist methods including massacres and racially orientated ethnic cleansing have the Zionists and Israel managed to fulfill what they define as the Jewish national aspiration. But as Goldstone reveals, this aspiration matured into a criminal state that is terrorizing its indigenous population and threatening its neighbours

If we ever want to amend the reality we live in, we must curtail the Zionist operators in our midst, in the government, in politics, in the media, in academia, in finance and in the legal system. I am not talking here about Jews but about Zionists, people who are affiliated with a specific foreign tribal interest that counters universalism, ethics and humanism. Unless we do that we may soon have to face another Goldstone report investigating a much greater Zionist crime against humanity.

If we want to help Israelis and Jewish nationalists recover from their nationalist racist fanatical dream, we must persuade them that the Goldstone report is their new Bible, a recent catalogue of their departure from humanity.

    It is well established that the “Protocols” are a forgery. Indeed, the identity of the forger is known. But there’s no doubt that the manipulation techniques described in it were indeed used by European Jews at the time and, to a great extent, still are. Thus, proving that it is a forgery doesn’t prove that its contents is false. It merely proves that the book wasn’t written by “the Elders of Zion”, if any such group of people ever existed.

    One astounding event is missing in gilad’s piece: if we wld live in an idyllic society, ‘zionism’ wld not matter an iota.
    As far as i can see, there are only two structures of society available: asocialistic [fascsist] and socialist; the latter developing to an idyllic society with each person having ab same value and same needs and thus wages.

    ‘Zionism’ {theft of land via murder} cld arise only in a despotic, highly anti-peasant world.
    Actually ?all ills on interpersonal, intrapersnoal, and int’l levels that befell us over the last 10 to 15 k yrs, stem from this one iniquity: division of people into more- and less-valued.
    Remove this one ill and we wld solve all our major problems. But gilad self appears to lean towards asocialism of some kind. He’s even converting to islam.
    The three major religions have alway thwarted establishmnet of an idyllic society because that wld lead to the demise of all our [mis]leaders, including priests. tnx

    There is a famous saying, ‘anti-semitism is the socialism of fools’. Basically, power in capitalist society can be confusing, because capitalists aren’t often in the light of day as they make decisions about how to allocate society’s resources or influence the government. And so, it was easier often to pin all of society’s problems on another group that was more visible, but often equally mysterious, Jews. The right wing in particular found this a convenient way to unify nations without talking about the realities of capitalist power. This was the climate of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. You don’t need to reach for this classic antisemitic text to denounce Zionism, or the relationship of the US to Israel (and the Palestinians). Although until very recently the Jewish community in the US was almost completely unified in support of Israel, this hardly explains everything about the US relationship with Israel (although it explains a lot), let alone everything else that has happened in the US. There are quite a few Jewish bankers, but there Jewishness has nothing much to do with the financial crisis, references to Lehman brothers notwithstanding. To understand why the US has tied itself so closely to Israel, one would do well to look at the long history of US racism. There is a certain brotherhood mentality with perceived white people under siege from savages. Antisemitism isn’t a big issue in the US, in general, or in the global left, why would a left site like this one drift in that direction?

    I agree with threehegemons; finally, someone on this site that sympathizes with me. Yes, what Israel is doing to Palestinians is complete and total injustice, and the war is a barbaric slaughter that must stop (on both sides, though my sympathies slant towards the Palestinians, because they were the first victims of this attack, and Israel has done terrible things that could aid in provoking their violent reaction to Israeli-US terrorism), but the social disparity between rich and poor, exemplified by the wealth of bankers, is not the fault of the Jews. There are Jews who are anti-Zionist, and who refuse to defend Israeli state terrorism. While s0me bankers are of Jewish descent, the social injustices of predatory capitalism and hierarchical society are not to blame for any ethnicity, neither Jews nor Europeans (while historically, Europeans have been responsible for many social injustices and prejudices, this is no excuse for racism against them) nor anyone else.

    threehegemons writes …

    And “anti-Semitism” is being used as an epitaph to curtail analysis. Analysis REQUIRES an examination of all aspects which include how Zionism use Capitalism and Militarism to advance its agenda.

    What threehegemon is doing is using “anti-semitism” to constrict analysis by labeling everything as “Capitalism” or “Imperialism”. This is the Chomskyite rhetoric that has ignored Zionism and has retarded confronting of an abject racist ideology.

    It’s hard to understand that while ‘The Protocols” are claimed as a forgery – the ‘Holocaust’ is being treated as a new Jewish religion – though none of those two claims have been proven in the court of law.

    Holocaust is new Jewish religion

    “The Protocols” is not a forgery

  7. Ghyslaine ROC said on February 14th, 2010 at 12:07pm #

    Dear Gilad

    I read your post “Dreyfus, The Protocols and Goldstone” and I thank you for it. There are several lessons to learn from this analogy. The Protocols Dreyfus Goldstone Affair is a Jewish creation and a great Jewish joke. The Protocols we have may well be a forgery of the real ones that the Elders of Zion have had all along. Why have they not provided us with the original all these years? Did Herzl not make use of them? Strangely enough, when the “forged” or “hoaxed” ones were published, Jews did not object immediately or for many years. Even my good friend Roger Garaudy (French philosopher) says it is a hoax or a forgery!

    Now, according to my research, Alfred Dreyfus was not a Jew or Jewish, but only of Jewish descent as you pointed out. He hated Orthodox Jews and mixed freely with the Goyim and was accepted by them. He did not eat Kosher in his house and even consumed pork! Was he circumcised? But, why all this information about him has disappeared from the net? His conviction was a military decision. His re-instatement was a political decision only when Jews and Zionists had taken over the French government through Socialist and Communist movements, which also led to the separation of Church and State. Ever since then, Jews and Zionists have run the affairs of France except for the Vichy interlude. As a French citizen, I know what I am talking about.

    In the 1970s, over 20% of the French voted for Communists! Is it a simple coincidence that the Jew Goldstone was chosen to establish that report? No, Jews and Zionists are everywhere and run everything! Hitler’s Germany had only 500,000 Jews with about 150,000 in his army. People are made to believe that there was only one Jew in the French Army, Captain Dreyfus! France has 500,000 Jews, but how many of them are in the army, nobody knows or is ready to talk about it out of FEAR! France forms young Zionists which then go to occupied Palestine to join the settlers and the IDF! Soldiers from Tsahal visit France regularly, give lectures and raise money without anybody to stop them. But, they stopped Sheikh Ahmed Deedat, an expert on comparative religion from entering France although he had a visa obtained in Apartheid South Africa. Why? Because he criticised Israel!

    Minister Louis Farrakhan has been banned for life from ever entering Great Britain although the Courts have ruled that the government’s decision to ban him was illegal.

    So, why such a ban? Because Farrakhan promotes self sufficiency among the Blacks, and this undermines Jewish established monopoly!

    I know Alan Dershowitz and David Aaronovitch very well. They both have many things in common: they are supremacists, fascists, fanatics, bullies, liars, racists and supporters of all Israeli (and US) crimes and genocide, and the Jewish Mafia and its Lobbies. Like Abe Foxman, David Milliband and Nicolas Sarkozy, they are evil Jews, the worse one can find on this earth. Who today speaks of the Jewish Mafia that runs Russia and operates even in the US? It is clear that peaceful religious and non fanatical Jews are not responsible for what those criminals are doing in their name!



    P.S. Someone argued that the Elders of Zion may even not exist at all. The Swiss Court did neither rule that they do not exist at all nor did it rule that the Protocols did not exist. The ruling was that the ones we have in our possession are forgeries and it can be a forgery only if the original exist!

    I asked a close friend of mine who studied, married in Russia, and has a Russian son and an adopted Russian daughter. He confirmed that when we talk of Jews, the term is very confusing. For example, people who “hate” Jews are called “anti-Semites” by the “Semites” and their slaves or agents, but this is a fallacy and a Himalayan lie because those who claim to be Semites are not Semites or of Semitic extraction for at least 90% of them! When Jewish Arthur Koestler said so in his book “The Thirteenth Tribe”, he was murdered as well as his wife by those same bogus “Semites” (passed as suicides by the Jewish-Zionist controlled London Police)! So, they lie, and can safely be called LIARS! Who believe liars? Only other liars (birds of a feather)!

    For a definitive study of a blatant Jewish historical distorter/liar, simply Google “Simon Wiesenthal and his trail of lies.”

    Or perhaps, for a definitive study of Jewish archeological distortions/lies, see..


    And don’t even start with Elie Wiesel!
    And on and on and on..

    But these jokers are bullet proof, held up as icons of truth, justice and academia’s finest. ($$$)

    Golly gee, do you think anything else might be distorted?
    Just a wee bit perhaps?

    These psychotics miscreants and their vicious chosen ones supremacist crappola, shoved down our throats by their privately owned media, publishing houses and academia itself.

    It would be hysterical if they weren’t so lethal.

    Holocaustianity is not just a new Jewish religion.
    It’s being conjured as a world religion, soon to be mandatory in the US, Canada and ? (or else)

    Ask Ernst Zundel (Canada’s shame) and all the imprisoned others how fictitious it is, about what a conspiracy it is.

    The churches/temples are ongoing, being built as I speak, all across North America, South America, Europe and ?
    They’re called Holocaust memorials.

    It is, at this very moment, in many so-called nations in Europe, illegal, punishable by prison and of course, money/fines to be a nonbeliever.

    This ain’t no stinking conspiracy.
    It’s stinking fact.

  11. Mulga Mumblebrain said on February 19th, 2010 at 1:13pm #

    As we see every day, Zionist Jews control the West, its politics,media and finance, in particular. To deny that reality is simply the Big Lie. So,and judging from their hundreds of years of history where the Jews were over and over again accused of acting as a controlling minority, living off the majority population,( surely not always unjustly) and setting other groups against each other to the Jews’ advantage, and as the Talmud and other Judaic tracts recommend such manipulation and a stark double-standard in dealing with Jews and non-Jews (in which,of course, the Jews were not alone) and as Judaic Orthodox openly claim Jews to be a higher form of life than non-Jews, then I think you can draw a few conclusions about the infamous Protocols. One, that they are a fraud composed by anti-Semites who hated Jews and the ways some Jews acted. Two, that they are, in fact, genuine, and describe the current reality.And third, that they are fraudulent, but were concocted by Jews to act as a diversion, to prevent non-Jews from confronting what is going on in their societies.
    As far as I’m concerned,Rightwing Zionist Jews are the most dangerous and dastardly people going around, just ahead of their Sabbat goy stooges and various Christian Zionists and the like,most of whom actually despise Jews,but understand their power. The rest of Jewry are either good people, most anti-Zionist, and outraged by the crimes committed in their name by the racist terror state, or muddlers along,like most of humanity.. As Mr Atzmon observes,Zionism,thinking itself impregnable in its control of the West,is rapidly evolving into an even greater evil.Facing no selection pressures to dissuade it from killing children,imprisoning millions in concentration camps, destroying international humanitarian law and destroying the Islamic states of the Middle East, Zionism is growing more psychopathic by the day.The current regime of belligerent thugs is mirrored by the strutting bully-boys of the Jewish Lobbies in the West,who spit vitriol and vilification at all critics of Israel’s crimes, and, where they have total control, as in Canada and the US, are purging academia,organising show trials and seeking to criminalise criticism of Israel. Indeed I suspect that the Dubai ‘incompetence’ in Mossad’s latest murder, is a signal from these demented racists that they will kill whomsoever they desire and the goyim can all go to hell.In fact I suspect the use by Israel of nuclear weapons against Iran grows daily.
    Undoubtedly Israel must be controlled before its evil leaders make genocide, aggression and mass torture not only acceptable to the West, but mandatory. These fiends, and they are in my opinion the exact moral equivalence of the Nazis, only infinitely more powerful.are determined to impel the West into a general religious war against Islam, motivated as much by visceral race and religious hatred as geopolitical ambition. We need to do it not just for the Palestinians, the Islamic world and ourselves, but also for all those decent Jews who do not deserve the moral opprobrium and spiritual death that the fascist leaders of Israel are visiting upon them.

    Thank you Mulga. I agree. Just a note to hopefully encourage you to keep saying it like it is.
    I’m wondering if you’ll have time to comment on Mr DeGraw’s research? Haha, laughing at myself: I just spent better than half an hour composing a “balanced” comment on DeGraw III, then when trying to post it accidentally hit the wrong key and it all disappeared. Every time I do that I solemnly resolve never to compose a comment directly on the DV box, but to type it in Wordpad first, save it & then post it to DV. Famous Last Words:)
    OK, let me try to post this before I screw up again…

    dan e I have done the same, many times! The submit button also lurks perilously close to the comment box here.

    Like you I am full of admiration for Mulga who has such a good grasp on the current state of affairs and the vested interests within the systems and then writes so brilliantly and with such spirit. I wish that he had a blog and that we could communicate directly with him. I have looked him up and have seen what a hard time he has had from the Australian variety of Zionist so maybe he prefers to stay at arm’s length from them.

    Also see what Gilad Atzmon writes today on the Zionist stooges’ involvement within the British political establishment. I hope Kim puts it up on this site.

    “The tide in Britain turns against Israel. Now it’s time to rid government of Israel’s stooges.”


    SYNOPSIS – Gilad Atzmon argues that the odour of British complicity in the
    murder of a Hamas official in Dubai by Israeli Mossad agents using UK passports underlines the urgent need to purge the British government of Israeli agents and hirelings.

    You never let a chance go by do you Jon.

    I have always assumed Mulga is male. Mulga Mumblebrain was a punch-drunk ex-boxer, turned night-soil can emptier in Frank Hardy’s book ‘The Outcasts of Foolgarah’. Doesn’t sound a very feminine character does it and if correct I can see why he chose that handle. He certainly finds a lot of night soil that needs shifting off the path.

    A case in point – the Dubai assassination is all over the news.

    I was told of another yesterday –

    mary, I haven’t the time or inclination to have a blog. I get quiet amusement from looking up my Zionist enemies’ calumnies,although they boast of their success in getting me censured on ABC sites in particular. No trouble. After all while they hate me for speaking the truth, I hate them(which I regret as it is negative, but I’ll grow old waiting for them to grow spiritually to the degree where they give up racism, xenophobia and delusions of supremacism)for their hatred. I try to restrict myself to hating the sin,not the sinner, but fail, repeatedly. Still I do not wish them harm,those not guilty of actual crimes against morality, such as inciting hatred or praising child-killers or lying in the service of racial supremacism. Even those I’d forgive if they confessed error and repented. As to my gender, such a flexible concept at the best of times, the truth is I am become Mulga,punch-drunk ex-boxer and night-soil carrier ie I’m ambidextrous.
