TheEU parliament has refused delivery of Will Eisner’s THE PLOT a graphic novel discussing the long running anti-Semitic tract “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.”
The European Parliament has refused to distribute to MEPs a book denouncing the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”, an anti-Semitic literary forgery.
Produced by the Okhrana, the Russian Czar’s secret police, in 1905, the Protocols accuse the Jews of plotting to rule the world.
Last month, the Transatlantic Institute, a Brussels-based think-tank fostering ties among the EU, Israel and the US, sent copies of “The Plot: The Secret Story of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion” written by American Will Eisner in a comic-book form, to the 785 members of the European Parliament and their staff.
A MEP is a member of the European parliament. The book was refused “due to the nature of its content” and because “the parliament don’t allow advertisement and that the book had no relevance with the parliament’s legislative agenda.”
Just to clarify, essentially a lobbyist sent a bunch of the books to the EU Parliament, which refused to distribute them to members. This has nothing to do with the book’s sale or distribution throughout Europe.
