Storyline

After the infamous 9/11 attacks of 2001, there came a virulent resurgence of antisemitism reemerging in America convinced that the Jews were responsible for the terrorism. Feeding this is the repeatedly debunked book libel, Protocols of the Elders of Zion and its disguised adaptations. Director Marc Levin goes on a journey to interview the promoters of this kind of hate in all its forms. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

More obvious propaganda than the Protocols
29 March 2011 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

While implying being able to debunk the Protocols of Zion, this film instead lends it credibility by being so incredibly biased against Muslems and antisemites alike and favorable towards Jews I doubt any educated gentile will not be offended by watching this so-called documentary that's really nothing but a simplistic propaganda film continuing the myth of Jews as eternal victims of evil genocidal antisemites who have no other reason but the most primitive bigotry to object to Jewish culture. It preys on emotion while giving little rational argumentation to take into account and is pretty much as stereotypical in its depiction of Jews, Muslems and antisemites as the very sources they try to ridicule.

As a documentary on the protocols of Zion or antisemitism, avoid it at all costs. As a view on Jewish attitudes towards gentiles and modern propaganda techniques, watch it and learn.
