Why oh why oh why oh why?

I have no doubt that the Daily mail has this morning embelished the reality somewhat of its story on weekend schools for Islamic extremism. By that I mean that when BBC Panorama broadcasts it is likely to be slightly more tempered.

However, what I find fascinating is that "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" continues to be pursued and used as a text by people convinced that the evil Jews are intent on taking over the world. Whether it be insane Islamists, or nutty Nazi's (go me with the alliteration huh?), this entirely fictional document written in Russia remains a powerful tool in the "Jewish Conspiracy" world.

No doubt if you point out that it was completely made-up the response by those who are convinced by it will be "ahh but that is what they want you to think!"
