The repercussion of this ruling tempered Nazi references to the book, though certainly not to the "global conspiracy of the Jews," which was the core of its message. During the Second War there were no reissues and Evans considers that, in any case, they would have served no purpose since the anti-Semitic campaign was better served by Nazi cinema. The protocols postulated a Jewish drive for antisocial conspiracy based on an attributed racial instinct and not on intellectual planning.
But they did so at a peculiar historical moment when European Jews were sharply divided between "orthodox and reformed, practicing and indifferent, believers and agnostics, assimilationists and Zionists, not to mention differences of class or political and national allegiance." It is true that these considerations did not affect south africa phone number list the propagation power of The Protocols since, as Evans writes, they constituted an "open" text that accepted any type of reading and offered a framework of ahistorical meaning, shielded from criticism and avoiding reflection independent.
Evans's book then goes on to consider "the stab in the back" ( Der Dolchstoss) that the internal front would have inflicted on the German troops in the First War, thus leading them to defeat. There are three basic versions of this conspiracy. One burden is blamed on the internal economic collapse that deprived the fighters of supplies. The second accused the left of subverting the order to seize power, encouraged by the Leninist slogan of "revolutionary defeatism"; the pacifists were also accomplices in this conspiracy.
