The Protocols of the Elders of Goyim
This article caught my eye... it makes some good points about some of the spouting one hears in certain circles about Bush's alleged apocalyptic views. There is a small but significant wedge of the population that is completely out of touch with the bulk of the rest of the country. To them, anyone who is at all serious about their religion is automatically part of some dark, scary "other".
It's a minor-league version of the way a rumor about the early Christians (and later, Jews) were spread... that they were kidnapping children to make break with their blood. The removal of those hearing and repeating the rumor from the targets of the rumor was the key to its spread.
