|The International Jew and The Protocols
Having heard in advance about the Dearborn Publishing Company's
plan to attack Jews, E.G. Pipp, editor of The Dearborn Independent, resigned in disgust
in April, 1920, and was replaced by William J. Cameron. Ernest Liebold, Henry Ford Sr..
s personal secretary, began to collect anti-Semitic material. Liebold passed this
material to Cameron, who oversaw the articles that compose The International Jew,
writing many of them himself. "When we get through with the Jews," Liebold
was quoted in court as saying, "there won. t be one of them who will dare
raise his head in public."
A version of The
Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the most notorious political
forgery of modern times, found its way into Liebold's hands. Taken
by the gullible as the confidential minutes of a meeting of Jewish
leaders, The Protocols has consistently been held
up by anti-Semites as proof that Jews are plotting to take over
the world. Even though it has been thoroughly discredited, The
Protocols continues to circulate among anti-Semites.
Liebold passed the text of The Protocols on to Cameron, who modernized
Brasol's translation and used it as the foundation for The
Each of the chapters in Gerald L.K. Smith's version of the International
Jew begins with a quotation from The Protocols, and one chapter . "An Introduction
to the . Jewish Protocols. . is devoted to it entirely. One Dearborn
Independent article lauded The Protocols as "too terribly real for
fiction, too well-sustained for speculation, too deep in its knowledge of the secret
springs of life for forgery." "The only statement I care to make about the
Protocols is that they fit in with what is going on," Ford stated in 1921. "They
have fitted the world situation up to this time. They fit it now."
