The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is according to Wikipedia a fictionalized account of a meeting of Jewish leaders, that would have occurred in 1897 in Basel. These Jewish leaders (Elders of Zion) would have come together to overthrow the Christian society. They also may have forged plans for a Jewish world domination; The "Protocols" describing in detail how this should be achieved. The writing was and is therefore gladly quoted by anti-Semites to make the "Jewish threat" note to prove. Because Freemasonry is also mentioned in the protocols, this is some evidence that there is a Jewish-Masonic conspiracy.
Throughout the 20th century anti-Semitic movement in Germany, Eastern Europe, the United States and used in several Arab countries with great eagerness of the Protocols, the purpose of anti-Semitic measures "to curb the Jewish danger." In various manifestations of anti-Semitism, even today, the protocols still pop up.

In the Middle East is not doubted by many to the authenticity of the Protocols, which are also widely available as "historical literature."
