Overview:

The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion is a document forged by the Russian Secret Police in the early 20th century. It was based on an earlier French novel, and was promoted as evidence of an international Jewish conspiracy to rule the world. It had wide circulation among some rabidly anti-semitic groups including the Nazi regime  in Germany. The Protocols, blood libel, host desecration, ritual murder, and other discredited stories are still occasionally mentioned by the media in some Muslim countries and by some neo-Nazi groups worldwide.

Copies of The protocols were sold in Wal-Mart's online book store where it was described as a document whose validity was debated. It was removed from their website on 2004-SEP-21. It is still available online at Amazon.com, and Barnes & Noble online bookstores, where it is accompanied by a disclaimer which points out the fraudulent nature of the document. 1

2004-SEP-21: USA: Wal-Mart removes hate literature from online bookstore:  The Russian Secret Police in the early 20th century forged a document called "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion." It was based on an earlier French novel, and was promoted as evidence of an international Jewish conspiracy to rule the world. It is still circulated by some rabidly antisemitic groups, and is referred to by the media in some Muslim countries. It is  available from Amazon.com and other online bookstores. which inform their buyers that the book is an anti-semitic forgery. 16 It was also also sold at Wal-Mart's online bookstore. Their web site implied that there is no conclusive proof that it is a forgery.  When Wal-Mart received complaints from Jewish anti-hate groups, they replied with the comment: "As an online retailer, Walmart.com is committed to providing customers with quality media merchandise, and continues to make case-by-case decisions on our broad book assortment dependent on what we believe our customers want." A comment on their web site said: "Some say the issue has already been settled conclusively — that it is clearly a forgery. Although there may be final evidence to this effect, we have not seen a clear and convincing version of it produced by those making the claim...If, however, The Protocols are genuine (which can never be proven conclusively), it might cause some of us to keep a wary eye on world affairs."
