In the West today, ''The Protocols'' continue to be circulated among neo-Nazi groups. They also inspired ''Literature/TheTurnerDiaries''. 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 Saudi Arabian textbooks describe ''The Protocols'' as a genuine historical document.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'' reads as though 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.

First appearing in 1903, during the twilight years of TsaristRussia, when anti-Semitism was at its height (pogroms and all that) and the House of Romanov looked like it was in trouble ([[RomanovsAndRevolutions it was]]), ''The Protocols'' are widely believed to be authored by the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okhrana Okhrana,]] the Tsar's SecretPolice -- specifically, by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matvei_Golovinski Matvei Golovinski,]] journalist and Paris agent, on orders from then chief [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyotr_Rachkovsky Pyotr Rachkovsky.]] The intended message boils down to, "All the problems in Russia are caused by the Jews, so don't blame the Tsar. Also, the Jews want you to overthrow the Tsar, so don't do that. In fact, the Tsar is the best thing to have happened to Russia since unification!" -- granted, the Tsar was only mentioned sparingly and offhandedly, and the letters were written as though they were meant for dissemination in 19th-century France, but the point still stands.

[[UsefulNotes/RedOctober The fall of the Romanovs and subsequent rise of the Soviets]] saw a mass exodus of White (anti-communist) Russians, many of whom brought copies of ''The Protocols'' with them, using them as tools of propaganda against the communist regime, believing it to be concocted by Jews ([[ContrivedCoincidence conveniently reinforced]] by the fact that both UsefulNotes/VladimirLenin and his ideological forebear KarlMarx were of Jewish stock).

* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: Comes into play because they are actually promoting for the ultimate state a policy which, at present, the alleged authors are opponents of, because if effectively carried out by existing regimes, then they would be far too belligerent for their taking.
