In early 1889, Ginsberg had broken with the more conservative forces of Zionism and moved into a radical position with his pamphlet, “This Is Not The Way.” The intent of Ginsberg’s pamphlet was to oppose the “politically expedient” views of his former mentor, Leon Pinsker, a leader of the movement.

Anyone caught by the Bolsheviks in possession of The Protocols was shot on the spot.
Schoerst offered to Glinka for the sum of 2,500 francs, a document which he said would interest her greatly.
In 1905, Sergei Nilus published a new edition of his “Rule of Satan” which included a complete version of the Protocols as the final chapter.
This was the first time a full compilation of the Protocols had been made available to the general public in book form.
In 1924, Professor Nilus was arrested by the Jewish-dominated “Cheka,” imprisoned, and then tortured.
