Portugal: "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" in Communist Party paper

"Protocols of the Elders of Zion" quote, Dec 30, 2013

Via Philosémitisme Blog:

In 2011, an article in "Avante!", the official newspaper of the Portuguese Communist Party, featured an op-ed by Jorge Messiah claiming that the world is dominated by three shadowy groups: the Zionists, Vatican and Masons.

To support his thesis, Messiah quotes "Protocol" 1 from the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion".

At the time, Jerónimo de Sousa, head of the party, refused to condemn the article.  Drawing a distinction between the "people of Israel" and the "Zionists", he said the former, together with the Communists, had been persecuted by the Nazis, while the latter are practicing state terrorism against the Palestinians.

The Portuguese Communist Party is a major left-wing political party in Portugal.  The article is still online.
