11. It's A Zionist Front
The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is anti-Semitic fiction first circulated by Russians in France in the early 1900s. The infamous tract claimed to be the actual minutes of a sinister meeting of Jewish leaders seeking to control mankind. Freemasonry, which was already under suspicion at that time, was implicated as a front organization for the Elders and their dastardly plot. Though exposed as a fraud, the Protocols have exhibited disturbing staying power. Hitler outlawed Freemasonry because of the Protocols, which are still circulated today by anti-Semitic groups.
