Bahraini Shi'ite Islamic scholar Ibrahim Al-Safa claimed in an April 14, 2023 lecture in the village of Karzakan that the Protocols of the Elders of Zion were "produced" at the 1897 first Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland. He said that "satanic and dangerous" principles that appear in the Protocols are the "basic principles of the Zionist movement," and he added: "Satan undoubtedly collaborated with them in the creation of these principles." Al-Safa continued to claim that according to the Protocols, Zionism must "control the world," and therefore set out to establish "Greater Israel," from the Nile to the Euphrates. He stated that another goal of the Protocols is to drown the Gentiles, who he claimed must be the servants of the Jewish race, with vice. Al-Safa added a warning against engaging in politics with Jews, because they have "no principles, values, or ethics." Video of the lecture was uploaded to Matam Karzakan on YouTube.
Ibrahim Al-Safa: "Hertzl made a concerted effort to gather all the Jews from everywhere. He sought to create Zionism and to establish a central leadership for the Jews. What did they seek to achieve? They sought to gather what was left of the Jews. The first meeting was held in 1897 in Switzerland. This meeting was the most dangerous Jewish gathering. The Jewish leaders, thinkers, and political strategists were there, and they produced the so-called Protocols of the Elders of Zion. These protocols represented the basic principles of the Zionist movement, which are satanic and dangerous principles. Satan undoubtedly collaborated with them in the creation of these principles.
"The first protocol they agreed upon, as was mentioned in the newspapers, stated that Zionism must control the world, and not just a specific piece of land. No. They had a big plan to establish Greater Israel, which would stretch from the Nile to the Euphrates.
"When you engage in politics with the Jews, you must be careful, because they have no principles, values, or ethics. All that they present to you is just for appearances' sake. Another principle which they agreed upon was the need to drown the Gentiles... The term 'Gentiles' appears in their holy book. They refer to all non-Jews as 'Gentiles', who are the servants of the Jewish race. There is us and there is them, according to their view. Those [Gentiles] must be drowned with vice, prostitution, drugs, and abomination, by means of the plans made in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion."
