Of a Malaysian press which publishes a controversial tome

The funny thing is that there is a local bookstore chain that carries books from a Malaysian press that publishes 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion'.

Yes, that bookstore carries '
The Protocols of the Elders of Zion' here. The book can be described as anti-Semitc hate literature in a sense? This book has been proven as a fraud but many in the Islamic world believe it as real and as evidence of a Jewish Illuminati-like conspiracy to rule the world.

From the Wikipedia entry:

Malaysia In 2006, Masterpiece Publications issued a version of the Protocols under the title World Conquest Through World Jewish Government (ISBN 983-3710-28-X). Copies of the book are held at the Institute of Islamic Understanding Malaysia."

Hamas The Charter of Hamas explicitly refers to the Protocols, accepting them as factual and makes several references to Freemasons as one of the "secret societies" controlled by "Zionists". The Article 32 of the Hamas Charter states: The Zionist plan is limitless. After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", and their present conduct is the best proof of what we are saying"

I don't advocate the banning of such books but I do worry about the impact these books may have some of the more impressionable and less critical folks.

Rabid mad-dog hatred of Jews is alive in many quarters of the world.

I am not into religion nor the history of the subject, but I know extremist views can lead to a lot of hate and pain in the world. Only educational and transparency can truly replace the need for bans and censorship.

Anti-Semite trash. Like Dracula, it rises time and again when you think you have finally killed it
