Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion X2
The Protocols of Learned Elders of Zion caught my attention twice this week. First, I saw about half of a new PBS documentary called "Anti-Semitism in the 21st Century: The Resurgence." There was a long discussion of how the Protocols have been popularized in the Middle East via the Nazis. I didn't know that. The producer did a great job, though it's hard to tell a story like that without leaving parts of the story out. Message aside, the musical score was composed by Andy Sterman, a NYC tenor sax player, who'll be playing on Jan 19th at the Rubin Museum of Art in NYC (MMFH - many miles from here).
The other sighting this week is Rav Shemuel's slightly lighter take on the Protocols.
