In the West today, ''The Protocols'' continue to be circulated among neo-Nazi groups. They also inspired ''Literature/TheTurnerDiaries'', ''Literature/{{Hunter}}'' and other white nationalist works by William Luther Pierce. However, the book's biggest contemporary success has been in the Middle East. ''The Protocols'' were believed authentic by UsefulNotes/MuammarGaddafi and OsamaBinLaden. In 2002, Egyptian television aired ''Knight Without A Horse'', a MiniSeries based on ''The Protocols''. Saudi Arabian textbooks describe ''The Protocols'' as a genuine historical document. And this is just scratching the surface.

In 1921, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Graves Philip Graves,]] an Irish reporter and Constantinople correspondent for ''[[BritishNewspapers The Times,]]'' asserted the ''The Protocols'' to be a forgery, finding that much of it bore a distinct resemblance to ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dialogue_in_Hell_Between_Machiavelli_and_Montesquieu The Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu,]]'' an 1864 satire against Napoleon III, written by French lawyer and Bourbon royalist Maurice Joly, which nicely explains why ''The Protocols'' read as though they were meant for dissemination in 19th-century France. But if you think this stopped people from believing in ''The Protocols'', then, boy, are you very naïve.

!Tropes:

!Tropes:
!!Tropes:
* AntiRoleModel: Intended as such on meta level. The reader is supposed to learn which actions of the "goyim" allegedly pave the way for Jewish rule so that they can do the opposite.


Added DiffLines:

* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Since the Protocols were forged by the Tzarist regime to demonise the Jews, yet they look favourably upon an authoritarian government and poorly upon democratic government; it would seem at least in part to be actually intended to indoctrinate the reader in the authoritarian ideology of their windmill 'enemy'. It is supposed to make the reader assimilate the Authoritarian ideology of the made up enemy by attempting to understand them so as to effectively oppose them.


Added DiffLines:

* ParodyReligion: At the expense of Judaism obviously.


Added DiffLines:

* RedScare: The likely motive behind the forgery. By such means the Okhrana and the Tsar could discredit and cast suspicion on the disproportionately Jewish socialist opposition since they are described as working for the Elders.


Added DiffLines:

* StrawmanPolitical: Because the WindmillPolitical advocates authoritarian right-wing ideology yet declares left-wing democratic ideology useful to its goals and was forged by that kind of regime; the Okhrana were likely creating a strawman version of their own ideology in order to contest with their real position. By destroying this strawman the authors reinforce their own similar ideology, since it is perceived as opposing the things that are useful to the strawman version of that ideology.

In 1993, a Russian court officially declared ''The Protocols'' to be an anti-Semitic forgery.

In 1993, a Russian court officially declared ''The Protocols'' to be an anti-Semitic forgery. If you think ''this'' stopped people from believing in them, then you really have not been paying attention.

** Which is pretty unintentionally funny, considering almost every major Jewish ceremony involves at least one cup of wine. Passover, for instance, prescribes four cups at minimum.
