Alabaster's Archive




Alabaster Mushroom





This Archive comprises a collection of texts which I have found useful to my study of Jews and Judaism. They were selected for their often surprising contrast in perspective compared to mainstream news and historical sources.

All of these texts have been verified against hardcopy originals and most were first prepared for the web by this editor, including The Zionist Plan for the Middle East and the less commonly known translation of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, The Jewish Peril.

No claims are made regarding the factual nature of these documents, merely that what was printed on paper is accurately reproduced in these editions.

Copyright has been granted by permission for some texts, a couple of publications have been discontinued, a few works were not published with copyright reserved, and the remainder are published here for the purposes of non-profit scholarly review and critical community education pursuant to the "fair use" clause in American copyright law.

This archive is always growing—typically one or more papers per week—and its goal is to present a serious full-text research resource of scholarly materials devoted to Jewish and Israeli religion, history, extremism, fundamentalism, and global socio-political power.

As for me, I am just somebody with an interest in reconsidering the way things are supposed to be in life. I am known on the web by my Yahoo! username, Alabaster_Mushroom, and I prefer to maintain a predominantly anonymous presence on the net. If you have an interest in speaking with me, I can commonly be found in Yahoo! chat in Religion room 1.

Best wishes and good reading,
