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

One of the subjects from Trembling Before G-d (2001), another American documentary concerning contemporary Jewish issues, can be seen briefly in the anti-war protest. See more »
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 »
not a documentary or debunking of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion
Disappointing documentary, totally misnamed, and even if retitled, still pretty scattershot.
The filmmaker starts with the question of why Jews were blamed for 9/11 and returns to that in the end, but he doesn't really even explore that issue. He also digs out an old box of JFK conspiracy material he collected as a kid, to serve no particular point. Perhaps he means to show how conspiracies can be appealing, though he doesn't say so.
There's random footage of various anti-Semitic historical figures, and ignorant people on the street. There's some, but not much, by way of balance - gentiles who don't believe the Protocols or who don't harbor prejudice against the Jews. As others have noted, he seems bigoted against Arabs, and is rather confrontational and didactic.
A shame, really.
