Plotting for world domination

The Times of Israel reports:
A Saudi scholar claimed that Jews are implementing the contents of “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” by using Hollywood to “target us” and preoccupy the masses with arts, sports and theater.

While stressing that there is no proof of the authenticity of the notorious anti-Semitic forgery, Sheikh Sa’ad ibn Abdullah Al-Humayd, a professor of Hadith Studies at King Saud University in Riyadh, said this didn’t matter since what appears in the book “has been translated into reality.”

He said the conspiracy that Jews are trying to take over the world by using their wealth could have been intentionally distributed by Jews who concluded it would benefit them.
It is funny to hear Saudis complain about others misusing their wealth.

I looked at the Wikipedia article on The Protocols of the Elders of Zion to see why this book is called a "forgery". Apparently about 8% of it has some identifiable phrases in common with earlier works. The examples mentioned are "obligation to pay interest", and a metaphor about the Hindu god Vishnu having 100 hands has some similarily to an earlier metaphor of Vishnu having 100 arms.

It said that Hitler cited the book, acknowledging these plagiarisms, and considering the book's content important anyway.

My guess is that Hitler figured that if the Jews hatched a written scheme to take over the work, then they would have stolen ideas from Machiavelli and other schemers in history. Were the Jews supposed to have come up with a 100% original plan?

I wonder why Jewish publications are so quick to call this book a "forgery", when all they mean by this is that some of the ideas were derived from earlier works.

The book has also been claimed to be a plot for the Illuminati or the Freemasons to take over the world.

If the Jews or any other group really had an evil plot to take over the world, how would they communicate their plan? You might try keeping the plan super-secret, but that is hopeless if you want group members all over the world to follow the plan. No, the plan would leak out, so you would have to have a backstory to convince outsiders that the plan is a hoax. So the Protocols books is genius.

Islam also has a plan to take over the world. They cannot say that the Koran is a hoax, so instead they have to argue for tolerance of their religious beliefs, or that the Koran is misinterpreted.
