EDITOR'S NOTE: The Franklin "Prophecy" is a classic anti-Semitic canard that falsely claims that American statesman Benjamin Franklin made anti-Jewish statements during the Constitutional Convention of 1787. It has found widening acceptance in the Muslim and Arab media, where it has been used to criticize Israel and Jews in news articles and statements.

The book is "dedicated to every Arab reader, so that the book will turn him from being a supporter to someone who opposes the lie of annihilation".
