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

When Marc Levin is walking up a gravel road with a white supremacist leader, the shots from behind show them passing several parked cars as they are engaged in conversation. Shots of them from the front, however, do not include these cars. In addition, the shots from behind show the two persons approaching the same cars several times. See more »
This film does a pretty good job dealing with the age old conspiracy theory of "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion". The film does a good job of showing how, once again, in times of trouble the Jews are blamed as the masterminds of some evil plot to control the world. "The Protocols" were originally used by the Czars of Russia to incite violence against Jews, then of course Hitler used them, and today once again they are being used by Terrorists to spread lies against the Jews. A very heavy moment in the film is when the white power skinhead shows the empty shelf where he can not keep the protocols in stock because they are selling so fast. My favorite part of the film, however, was the music . . . original soundtrack by John Zorn in the vein of "Massada" and special appearance by Chasidic Rapper Matisyahu!
