Eric Walberg on "The 'Protocols' Revisited"
Eric Walberg, formerly a journalist with Egypt's leading newspaper al-Ahram, is the author of The Canada Israel Nexus, From Postmodernism to Postsecularism, and Postmodern Imperialism.

In this interview we discuss Eric's latest essay, "The Protocols Revisited." Eric's take on the Protocols of the Elders of Zion is shockingly heretical: "The ‘elder’ly bile aside (pretty nasty stuff), it is in fact an series of 24 mostly articulate, well-argued lectures outlining a plan for world capitalist domination, with sharp political and social analysis, lots of Machiavelli and a Marxian sophistication in its understanding of capitalism and historical processes. Briefly, it outlines a plan of world conquest by first establishing world government by consent. As with any sharp political expose, it has been denounced, dismissed, misinterpreted and banned. And made very good use of by those lusting for world power."

But aren't the Protocols about an alleged Jewish scheme? Eric says not so much, they're about world takeover plots in general, and the British imperial efforts of Cecil Rhodes in particular. Zionism, Eric suggests, has been used as a tool by British and later American imperialists: "Just cleanse (The Protocols) of anti-Jewish bigotry by replacing 'fellow Jews' with 'neocons' and make sense of what's happening in the world today. As for the 'hill citadel of Jerusalem,' well, I guess Trump fantasizes crowning himself King of the New World Order there, trying to force his last piece into the world geopolitical jigsaw puzzle, come hell or high water."

Will Bnai Brith charge Eric with heresy? Will neo-Nazis object to Eric's sacrilegious reading of their beloved racist text? And what do YOU think of Eric's reading of The Protocols? Tune in and draw your own conclusions.
