Haters of Jews are so very often haters of Freemasons.
For instance, the nineteenth-century Russian apostate from Judaism Jacob Brafman demonised the two groups in his nasty and notorious Kniga Kagala - The Book of the Kahal - precursor to that despicable forgery and "warrant for genocide" The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
Then, too, the ultramontane and fascist persecutors of Jews in nineteenth- and twentieth-century France classed Jews, Freemasons, and Protestants as the trio of so-called métèque elements held, absurdly, to be deliberately and perversely undermining the nation.
Indeed, in just one contemporary internet example, a conspiracy theorist and avowed Christian believer who persistently infests my comments box with grotesque judeophobic tripe has a breath-takingly vicious anti-Israel blog in which Jews and Freemasons are routinely held responsible for the world's troubles.
The following video, featuring a titled Australian Ahmadinejad-admiring judeophobe (for whom see http://daphneanson.blogspot.com/2010/12/beauty-beasts-and-birobidjan.html), is notable mainly for its curiosity value as an example of the genre. You'll gather, from the reference to Gordon Brown as "prime minister in waiting," that it's not exactly up-to-the-minute (unless, as I suspect, she meant to say "former prime minister".) But it's worth watching all the same, as an insight into the raw antisemitism that still lurks in some quarters - the kind of nutty Jew-hatred, with references to rule by the Rothschilds and a Judeo-Masonic conspiracy - that really should have had the decency to have died along with Hitler.
In the words of its uploader:
'In March 2011 the mainstream media reported Iranian alarm that the logo for London's 2012 Olympics had been encoded simultaneously to spell out the word ZION - a celebration of the predatory Zionist state in Palestine founded in 1948 (the year of the previous London Olympics). In this video the Islamic Republic of Iran News Network interviews Lady Michèle Renouf and lawyer Philip Bree, who explain the background to this affair: the "brand consultants" and advertising agencies with close ties to leading Zionists and the Western political establishment; the influence of Freemasonry among the founders of the modern Olympics, such as their main instigator Baron Pierre de Coubertin; and the occult/Masonic significance of the famous Olympic symbol.'
