The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is the most widely distributed antisemitic publication of modern times. It falsely purports to be the record of secret meetings of Jewish leaders who were plotting to take over the world. In 1921, a London Times article provided proof exposing the text as fraudulent. The Protocols has been repeatedly discredited since, but continues to circulate today.
