(Translated by Victor E. Marsden)
The author of this translation of the famous Protocols was himself
a victim of the Revolution. He had lived for many years in Russia
and was married to a Russian lady. Among his other activities in Russia
he had been for a number of years a Russian Correspondent of the MORNING
POST, a position which he occupied when the Revolution broke out,
and his vivid descriptions of events in Russia will still be in the
recollection of many of the readers of that Journal. Naturally he
was singled out for the anger of the Soviet. On the day that Captain
Cromie was murdered by Jews, Victor Marsden was arrested and thrown
into the Peter-Paul Prison, expecting every day to have his name called
out for execution. This, however, he escaped, and eventually he was
allowed to return to England very much of a wreck in bodily health.
However, he recovered under treatment and the devoted care of his
wife and friends. One of the first things he undertook, as soon as
he was able, was this translation of the Protocols. Mr. Marsden
was eminently well qualified for the work. His intimate acquaintance
with Russia, Russian life and the Russian language on the one hand,
and his mastery of a terse literary English style on the other, placed
him in a position of advantage which few others could claim. The consequence
is that we have in his version an eminently readable work, and though
the subject-matter is somewhat formless, Mr. Marsden's literary touch
reveals the thread running through the twenty-four Protocols.
It may be said with truth that this work was carried out at the cost
of Mr. Marsden's own life's blood. He told the writer of this Preface
that he could not stand more than an hour at a time of his work on
it in the British Museum, as the diabolical spirit of the matter which
he was obliged to turn into English made him positively ill.
Mr. Marsden's connection with the MORNING POST was not severed by
his return to England, and he was well enough to accept the post of
special correspondent of that journal in the suite of H.R.H., the
Prince of Wales on his Empire tour. From this he returned with the
Prince, apparently in much better health, but within a few days of
his landing he was taken suddenly ill, and died after a very brief
May this work be his crowning monument! In it he has performed an
immense service to the English-speaking world, and there can be little
doubt that it will take its place in the first rank of the English
versions of "THE PROTOCOLS of the Meetings of the LEARNED ELDERS
Of the Protocols themselves little need be said in the way
of introduction. The book in which they are embodied was first published
in the year 1897 by Philip Stepanov for private circulation among
his intimate friends. The first time Nilus published them was in 1901
in a book called The Great Within the Small and reprinted
in 1905. A copy of this is in the British Museum bearing the date
of its reception, August 10, 1906. All copies that were known to exist
in Russia were destroyed in the Kerensky regime, and under his successors
the possession of a copy by anyone in Soviet land was a crime sufficient
to ensure the owner's of being shot on sight. The fact is in itself
sufficient proof of the genuineness of the Protocols. The Jewish
journals, of course, say that they are a forgery, leaving it to be
understood that Professor Nilus, who embodied them in a work of his
own, had concocted them for his own purposes.
Mr. Henry Ford, in an interview published in the New York WORLD,
February 17th, 1921, put the case for Nilus tersely and convincingly
"The only statement I care to make about the PROTOCOLS is that
they fit in with what is going on. They are sixteen years old, and
they have fitted the world situation up to this time. THEY FIT IT
Indeed they do!
The word "Protocol" signifies a precis gummed on to the front
of a document, a draft of a document, minutes of proceedings. In this
instance, "Protocol" means minutes of the proceedings of the
Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion. These Protocols give
the substance of addresses delivered to the innermost circle of the
Rulers of Zion. They reveal the converted plan of action of the Jewish
Nation developed through the ages and edited by the Elders themselves
up to date. Parts and summaries of the plan have been published from
time to time during the centuries as the secrets of the Elders have
leaked out. The claim of the Jews that the Protocols are forgeries
is in itself an admission of their genuineness, for they NEVER ATTEMPT
TO ANSWER THE FACTS corresponding to the THREATS which the Protocols
contain, and, indeed, the correspondence between prophecy and fulfillment
is too glaring to be set aside or obscured. This the Jews well know
and therefore evade.
In the 1905 edition of The Jewish Encyclopedia (Volume X,
p. 252, edited by Isidore Singer), under the heading "Magan Dawid"
(Star of David), we read that: "A pentacle in this form (i.e. inverted),
is found on the ancient synagogue at Tell Hum. Charles IV prescribed
for the Jews of Prague, in 1354, a red flag with both David's shield
and Solomon's seal, while the red flag with which the Jews met King
Matthias of Hungary in the fifteenth century showed two pentacles
with two golden stars (Schuandtner, Scriptores Rerum Hungaricarun;
ii 148). The pentacle, therefore, may also have been used among the
Jews. It occurs in a manuscript as early as the year 1073. . ."
This upside down five-pointed star is well known to all occultists
as their symbol of Satan. And the red flag, signifying Edom, was well
known to the millions of Christians who were slaughtered by the Jewish
Bolsheviks of our present century. The David spoken of here
does NOT refer to King David of Ancient Israel, or to Messiah, the
coming Son of David, but to the twelth century Khazar pseudo Messiah,
Menahem ben Duji, who changed his name to David al-Roy, and
was assassinated on his way to "liberate" Palestine. If David al-Roy
is the King of the Jews, King of Israel and King David
mentioned in the Protocols, it is a further mark of their antiquity.
Captain A.H.M. Ramsay records in his classic, The Nameless War:
"According to a letter published in "Plain English" (a weekly
review published by the North British Publishing Co. and edited by
the late Lord Alfred Douglas) on 3rd September, 1921:-
"The Learned Elders have been in existence for a much longer period
than they have perhaps suspected. My friend, Mr. L. D. van Valckert,
of Amsterdam, has recently sent me a letter containing two extracts
from the Synagogue at Mulheim. The volume in which they are contained
was lost at some period during the Napoleonic Wars, and has recently
come into Mr. van Valckert's possession. It is written in German,
and contains extracts of letters sent and received by the authorities
of the Mulheim Synagogue. The first entry he sends me is of a letter
16th June, 1647.
From O.C. (i.e. Oliver Cromwell), by Ebenezer
"In return for financial support will advocate admission of Jews
to England: This however impossible while Charles living.
Charles cannot be executed without trial, adequate grounds for
which do not at present exist. Therefore advise that Charles be assassinated,
but will have nothing to do with arrangements for procuring an assassin,
though willing to help in his escape."
In reply was dispatched the following:-
12th July, 1647.
To O.C. by E. Pratt.
"Will grant financial aid as soon as Charles removed and Jews
admitted. Assassination too dangerous. Charles shall be given opportunity
to escape: His recapture will make trial and execution possible. The
support will be liberal, but useless to discuss terms until trial
Captain Ramsay quotes Isaac Disraeli, father of Benjamin, Earl of
Beaconsfield, Britain's first Jewish Prime Minister, in his two volume
"Life of Charles I", published in 1851: "The English
Revolution under Charles I was unlike any preceding one . . . From
that time and event we contemplate in our history the phases of revolution."
There were many more to follow on similar lines, notably in France.
In 1897 a further important clue to these mysterious happenings fell
into Gentile hands in the shape of the Protocols of the Elders
In that document we read this remarkable sentence: "Remember
the French Revolution, the secrets of its preparation are well known
to us for it was entirely the work of our hands."" (See Protocol
No. III, XIV).
The presumption is strong that the Protocols were issued,
or reissued, at the First Zionist Congress held at Basle in 1897 under
the presidency of the Father of Modern Zionism, the late Theodore
There has been recently published a volume of Herzl's "Diaries,"
a translation of some passages which appeared in the JEWISH CHRONICLE
of July 14, 1922. Herzl gives an account of his first visit to England
in 1895, and his conversation with Colonel Goldsmid, a Jew brought
up as a Christian, an officer in the English Army, and at heart a
Jew Nationalist all the time. Goldsmid suggested to Herzl that the
best way of expropriating the English aristocracy, and so destroying
their power to protect the people of England against Jew domination,
was to put excessive taxes on the land. Herzl thought this an excellent
idea, and it is now to be found definitely embodied in Protocol VI!
The above extract from Herzl's DIARY is an extremely significant
bit of evidence bearing on the existence of the Jew World Plot and
authenticity of the Protocols, but any reader of intelligence
will be able from his own knowledge of recent history and from his
own experience to confirm the genuineness of every line of them, and
it is in the light of this LIVING comment that all readers are invited
to study Mr. Marsden's translation of this terribly inhuman document.
Here is what Dr. Ehrenpreis, Chief Rabbi of Sweden, said in 1924,
concerning the Protocols: "Long have I been well acquainted
with the contents of the Protocols, indeed for many years
before they were ever published in the Christian press. The Protocols
of the Elders of Zion were in point of fact not the original Protocols
at all, but a compressed extract of the same. Of the 70 Elders of
Zion, in the matter of origin and of the existence of the original
Protocols, there are only ten men in the entire world who
I participated with Dr. Herzl in the first Zionist Congress which
was held in Basle in 1897. Herzl was the most prominent figure at
the Jewish World Congress. Herzl foresaw, twenty years before we experienced
them, the revolution which brought the Great War, and he prepared
us for that which was to happen. He foresaw the splitting up of Turkey,
that England would obtain control of Palestine. We may expect important
developments in the world."
And here is another very significant circumstance.The present successor
of Herzl, as leader of the Zionist movement, Dr. Weizmann, quoted
one of these sayings at the send-off banquet given to Chief Rabbi
Hertz on October 6, 1920. The Chief Rabbi was on the point of leaving
for HIS Empire tour of H.R.H., the Prince of Wales. And this is the
"saying" of the Sages which Dr. Weizmann quoted: "A beneficent
protection which God has instituted in the life of the Jew is that
He has dispersed him all over the world." (JEWISH GUARDIAN, Oct.
Now compare this with the last clause of but
one of Protocol XI.
"God has granted to us, His Chosen People,
the gift of dispersion, and from this, which appears to all eyes
to be our weakness, has come forth all our strength, which has now
brought us to the threshold of sovereignty over all the world."
The remarkable correspondence between these passages proves several
things. It proves that the Learned Elders exist. It proves that Dr.
Weizmann knows all about them. It proves that the desire for a "National
Home" in Palestine is only camouflage and an infinitesimal part
of the Jew's real object. It proves that the Jews of the world have
no intention of settling in Palestine or any separate country, and
that their annual prayer that they may all meet "Next Year in Jerusalem"
is merely a piece of their characteristic make-believe. It also demonstrates
that the Jews are now a world menace, and that the Aryan races will
have to domicile them permanently out of Europe..
This is a secret which has not been revealed. They are the Hidden
hand. They are not the "Board of Deputies" (the Jewish Parliament
in England) or the "Universal Israelite Alliance" which sits
in Paris. But the late Walter Rathenau of the Allgemeiner Electricitaets
Gesellschaft has thrown a little light on the subject and doubtless
he was in possession of their names, being, in all likelihood, one
of the chief leaders himself. Writing in the WIENER FREIE PRESSE,
December 24, 1912, he said:
"Three hundred men, each of whom knows all the others, govern the
fate of the European continent, and they elect their successors
from their entourage."
In the year 1844, on the eve of the Jewish Revolution of 1848, Benjamin
Disraeli, whose real name was Israel, and who was a "damped,"
or baptized Jew, published his novel, CONINGSBY, in which occurs this
"The world is governed by very different personages from what is
imagined by those who are not behind the scenes."
And he went on to show that these personages were all Jews.
Now that Providence has brought to the light of day these secret
Protocols all men may clearly see the hidden personages specified
by Disraeli at work "behind the scenes" of all the Governments. This
revelation entails on all white peoples the grave responsibility of
examining and revising AU FOND their attitude towards the Race and
Nation which boasts of its survival over all Empires.
Notes I. - "Agentur" and "The
There are two words in this translation which are unusual, the word
"AGENTUR" and "political" used as a substantive, AGENTUR appears to
be a word adopted from the original and it means the whole body of
agents and agencies made use of by the Elders, whether members of
the tribe or their Gentile tools.
By "the Political" Mr. Marsden means, not exactly the "body
politic" but the entire machinery of politics.
Notes II - The Symbolic Snake
Protocol III opens with a reference to the Symbolic Snake
of Judaism. In his Epilogue to the 1905 Edition of the Protocols,
Nilus gives the following interesting account of this symbol:
"According to the records of secret Jewish Zionism, Solomon and other
Jewish learned men already, in 929 B.C., thought out a scheme in theory
for a peaceful conquest of the whole universe by Zion. As history
developed, this scheme was worked out in detail and completed by men
who were subsequently initiated in this question. These learned men
decided by peaceful means to conquer the world for Zion with the slyness
of the Symbolic Snake, whose head was to represent those who have
been initiated into the plans of the Jewish administration, and the
body of the Snake to represent the Jewish people -- the administration
was always kept secret, EVEN FROM THE JEWISH NATION ITSELF. As this
Snake penetrated into the hearts of the nations which it encountered
it undermined and devoured all the non-Jewish power of these States.
It is foretold that the Snake has still to finish its work, strictly
adhering to the designed plan, until the course which it has to run
is closed by the return of its head to Zion and until, by this means,
the Snake has completed its round of Europe and has encircled it --
and until, by dint of enchaining Europe, it has encompassed the whole
world. This it is to accomplish by using every endeavor to subdue
the other countries by an ECONOMICAL CONQUEST. The return of the head
of the Snake to Zion can only be accomplished after the power of all
the Sovereign of Europe has been laid low, that is to say, when by
means of economic crises and wholesale destruction effected everywhere,
there shall have been brought about a spiritual demoralization and
a moral corruption, chiefly with the assistance of Jewish women masquerading
as French, Italians, etc.. These are the surest spreaders of licentiousness
into the lives of the leading men at the heads of nations. A map of
the course of the Symbolic Snake is shown as follows: -- Its first
stage in Europe was in 429 B.C. in Greece, where, about the time of
Pericles, the Snake first started eating into the power of that country.
The second stage was in Rome in the time of Augustus, about 69 B.C..
The third in Madrid in the time of Charles V, in A.D. 1552. The fourth
in Paris about 1790, in the time of Louis XVI. The fifth in London
from 1814 onwards (after the downfall of Napoleon). The sixth in Berlin
in 1871 after the Franco-Prussian war. The seventh in St. Petersburg,
over which is drawn the head of the Snake under the date of 1881.
[This "Snake" is now being drawn through the Americas and in the United
States of America, it is been partially identified as the "Council
on Foreign Relations" (C.F.R.) and the "Trilateral Commission"]. All
these States which the Snake traversed have had the foundations of
their constitutions shaken, Germany, with its apparent power, forming
no exception to the rule. In economic conditions, England and Germany
are spared, but only till the conquest of Russia is accomplished by
the Snake, on which at present [i.e., 1905] all its efforts are concentrated.
The further course of the Snake is not shown on this map, but arrows
indicate its next movement towards Moscow, Kieft and Odessa. It is
now well known to us to what extent the latter cities form the centuries
of the militant Jewish race. Constantinople is shown as the last stage
of the Snake's course before it reaches Jerusalem. (This map was drawn
years before the occurrence of the "Young Turk" -- i.e., Jewish --
Revolution in Turkey.)
