Rasputin, I only pointed out that two saints clearly
disagreed on his character, and so the fact that a
saint had an opinion about something is not proof that
his opinion was correct.
Also, it should be noted that quite a bit of the
original documents regarding the royal family are in
English... not Russian, because English was the
language spoken in in the home.

the claim that the Tsar thought them fraudulent, when
the Protocols are already completely discredited, and
the sloppy historians tend to paint the Tsar as an
Anti-Semite? In the eyes of most people, pointing out

In any case, what people may have thought of the
Protocols before they were exposed as a plagiarization
of an earlier work and before Hitler used them to
justify the slaughter of the Jews, and and what people
think of it after those two pivotal events are
entirely different questions.
In 1918, one might simply have believed that they were
exactly what they claim to be. In 2001, someone has
to want to believe that really badly, and has to be
willing to ignore compelling evidence to the contrary.
Mind you, I am not suggesting that Masons have never
conspired or played roles in Revolutions. This would
also be to ignore the facts. The Masons certainly
have (as one can see, for example by reading the
Masonic plaque at the Alamo). I'm sure that there are
Jewish Masons, just as their are English, Russian,
Greek, and American Masons. I do not believe that
there is a specifically "Jewish" Masonic conspiracy,
and I think trying to build a case for one...
particularly with the protocols is the surest way to
be forever dismissed as a kook.
